Sweet treat cups.

Hello campers! Just a bit of English humour:-) I have seen lots of versions of these wonderful sweet treat holders and here is a couple I have cased from two very talented Stampin'Up!® demos, the top one I saw at my friend Nagaire's house at a meeting I was lucky enough to be invited to. Ngaire had seen it on Marelle Taylor's blog, so I hope that covers the credits I needed to give out for that one, although I have seen several more versions floating around the blogs of the world. This one above which houses yummy jelly beans, I saw on my dear friend Lou Ryan's blog, but like the first one, I have seen many versions of this one around too.
The top one uses the great new set designed especially to go with our sweet treat cups, called Something sweet. I love the old fashioned gum ball machine and it stamps up so well, I have used one of the small grommets, also in our Summer mini to embellish the point where you would turn a knob to release a gum ball. The ribbon used is my favourite red spotted grosgrain, it has spots on one side and is plain on the other. How very versatile! The little chocolate candies are released by pulling on the arrow and opening the card, this mechanism works in such a way, so as not to destroy the card and when all the candy is gone you can see straight through the sweet treat cup to the inside where I have stamped some coloured jelly beans on a circle of white card.
The next project also houses something sweet to eat, in the form of colourful jelly beans, I have used two of the die cut blooms, which you can find in our current Idea book and catalogue. They are so easy to use and you get an instant result from very little effort which you could use as a table dressing for birthdays or baby showers etc. I had great fun making these little treats and I hope you enjoy them. Thanks for stopping by and visiting with me, take care, lots of inky hugs from...
