Swirly Treats

Yesterday I shared the card I made using the Carte Postale stamp set & the Leaves à la Carte wheel which is part of the Free Wheelin’ promotion from Stampin’ Up! for September.

Today I want to share with you the projects we made at Friday’s class and  Monday’s demonstration.

I love seeing the peoples’ faces when they realise my projects are a lot easier to make than they look. The joy and the excitement makes me feel I’ve done my job!

These projects are based on the Pull Treats by my good friend Beate Johns on Splitcoast Stampers.

I’ve taken the sachets of chocolate/coffee’s and just adjusted the sizes so ours will fit inside nicely. You will need to use sticky strip when sticking the sides together as it has a much stronger hold than the Snail Adhesive.

This one fits the long thin sachets you can get for coffees & hot chocolates and what a lovely way to present them as a little gift to let someone know you’re thinking of them!

This one was made using the Like it a Latte set (how could you go wrong with a ‘Latte’ set?) I’ve used Close to Cocoa, Purely Pomegranate and Pretty in Pink for the colours.

The little card opens to reveal a message.  I have also stamped the ‘froth’ onto very vanilla and given it a little sponging with Creamy Caramel and raised the image using dimensionals to give the foam a 3d look.

You can see in this photo this photo the dimensional froth. Hmmm I can just about smell it – must need another latte!

We also made a Pull Treat for the other sachets you can buy – they are a rectangular shape and again have just adjusted the dimensions to house this sized sachet.

For this I’ve used the Priceless bundle from the Free Wheelin’ promotion.

I’ve used the So Swirly wheel in the Whisper White Craft Ink – it creates an awesome pattern and whenever I demonstrate this at a workshop everyone is wowed at how well it looks.

The feature is done using the swirls, sentiment, butterfly and flower stamps from the Pricless set. Now this set is great value alone – 11 stamps for just AU$48.95 and when you add the free So Swirly wheel during September it makes a great affordable purchase and would also make a great christmas present!

I’ve used creamy caramel, pretty in pink and Purely Pomegranate inks and the “Rock and Roll” technique on the butterfly and flowers. I’ve also used the Purely Pomegranate Satin ribbon from the Spring Mini Catalogue. These work by when you pull the ribbon/bow up the inserted treat/surprise comes out.

You’ll also notice my sponging around the edge of the cardstock as well. You may notice I do that a lot as I love the soft effect it gives to the edges and helps it blend in to the next layer.

I’ve used brads in the centre of the flowers and for the butterfly body. I’ve then used a dimensional to adhere them to the card giving the ‘floating’ look.

You can see by the photo here how they are attached – I know some hate to cut out but it really does give a better look and feel to a project.

I do hope you like these Pull Treats and if you would like to order one of the bundles then just give me a call or send me an email. The Free Wheelin’ promotion finishes on 30th September so you have just under a week left to decide which bundles you want!

Here is another of the pull treats done in elegant eggplant and the plums from the soft subtle range.

These sized pull treats would make great little gifts to those friends and family members with a flu or cold and just adding a cup o soup sachet or the lemsip ones you can get now.

You could also make these and instead of inserting a sachet pop in a tag that you can attach a gift voucher or gift card to. The possibilities are endless.

Tomorrow we start our trip to country Victoria to visit family and friends. We will be away for two weeks – not sure how I’ll cope with no demonstrations or workshops for that long!

I do love to catch up with my customers regularly and stamp with them.

I can still place orders for you so if you need anything just email me or get me on my mobile!

Stay safe and see you in a few days!

    Oh these are so cute. I just love them. It’s a pity I can’t get over there for some lessons at present. I would love to make some of these. Of course I would need the stamps too – um do I feel a spending spree coming on? I’ll wait until after the holidays LOL. XOX
