Sweet Centers

This is card is made using the new Sweet Centers stamp set (#116521, $29.95, set of 6) from the Holiday Mini Catalog. This set is so awesome because it allows you to add dimensional items (candy, small gifts, etc.) to the center image using Sweet Treat Cups (sold separately, 12 to a package for $2.95, #116802). The background was made using the Batty Jumbo Stampin' Around wheel in Perfect Plum ink onto Perfect Plum card stock.

I wanted more color to the stamped image, so I stamped it in VersaMark ink onto Whisper White card stock. Then, I used the poppin' pastels technique to add Stampin' Pastels to the image. It's then layered onto Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black card stock.
This is a great technique and super easy! I'd be glad to share it with you and your friends at a stamping workshop.

The "eek" image was punched out (it's the center of the bigger image) and attached using Stampin' Dimensionals to the lower right side of the bigger image after the Sweet Treats Cups was added. (They come with adhesive already attached, so it's easy to add.)

Here's another project that I made using the same stamp set and image. It's a treat bag holder. The background was made using the face image from Autumn Harvest stamp set in Rich Razzleberry ink onto Rich Razzleberry card stock. The image from the Sweet Centers stamp set is stamped onto Whisper White card stock using Old Olive ink. A small cellophane bag is added to the inside and attached with a hole punch to the top and tied together with 1/4" Old Olive grosgrain ribbon.

Totally cute!
