Stampin Celebration #11
This week over at Stampin' Celebration, we're celebrating summer! When I think of summer, one of the first things I think of is birthdays. In our family and extended family we have A LOT of summer birthdays, and July is a particularly busy month. In fact there is a 3 day period where we have 4 birthdays!! So, I used the colors from the inspiration piece and created some little birthday treats.
The colors I picked this week were Baja Breeze, So Saffron, and one of the new In Colors--Poppy Parade. By the way, this color combination is right from the new Color Coach--a tool I would highly recommend. I used my Mini Milk Carton Die and Big Shot to make the cartons.
I used the new set Got Treats and my markers to stamp the images. I added a few embellishments and that's it. These were actually quite simple to make, and it would be easy to change up the colors depending on the occasion. I think these would make not only a cute gift to give someone on their birthday, but also a cute party favor.
A couple things to note: The scallops along the edge of the image on the Baja Breeze carton are from the Scallop Square Punch. The frosting on the cupcake was covered with a thin layer of Smooch Illuminate Top Coat. This is a new shimmer product in the catalog. You can find it on page 195, and it reminds me of nail polish (without the smell!). When you open it, there's a little brush that allows you to add shimmer easily to small or specific areas of an image.
