Hi, it’s Mona Toth here, in this post I have three sweet and colorful card inspirations for you. In this project I am featuring various stamp sets from the super cute Sweet Street collection by Tina Smith.
For all the three cards I have created my own pastel rainbow patterned cardstock with paper piecing. To achieve this beautiful pastel rainbow look I have trimmed 0.25” x 8.5” sized strips from Color Essentials Cardstocks in the following shades: Pink Sand, Beeswax, Peridot, Waterfall, Purple Mist. Just a little note, if you like pastel colors like me, then I suggest you to try the mentioned cardstocks, I am sure you will love them!
For the first card I created cute desserts with the Cupcake Pocket die-set. I Die-cut the yummy cocoa cupcakes from Portobello cardstock, then gave them a tasty vanilla topping with Alabaster cardstock. Because I wanted to give personality to the cupcakes, I run the sprinkle cookie from the Cookies Die-set and the flower shape from the Cupcake Pocket through my die-cut machine with Timber cardstock, to create eyes and mouth.
Next, I have shorten the cupcake pockets a bit with scissors, to uncover the faces I created. As a decoration, I have created other small die-cuts and embellished them with it. Next, I stamped the sentiment with watermark ink from the Sugar Coated Sentiments Stamp Set to a piece of Beeswax cardstock and heat embossed it.
I created the rainbow frame by using the Bakery Box Dies. This is the negative part of the die-cut I have created and you will see that piece in my next project. I adhered Acetate to the frame, then I added Sweet Sprinkles inside it and adhered it to my light teal card base made from Waterfall cardstock. In the end I added highlights and sparkle effect with white pen.
For the next card I have used the previous leftover die-cut which I made with the Bakery Box Die set. I also made on it a little window with the smallest die from the set and adhered on it a piece of acetate. Next, I created two pieces of white scalloped frames with the coordinating die from the Bakery Box Die set. I placed yummy cookies to the box what I have created with the Cookies Die set.
For this process I have used Portobello, Timber and Alabaster Color Essentials Cardstocks. In the end I adhered the You Are Sweet sentiment and some clay sprinkles directly to the acetate window. You need to know that with the Bearly Art Craft Glue it was easier than you think!
For the third card I wanted to create a kind of flower-power card with a nice twist. Instead of colorful flowers I created white ones and to the background I placed all the leftover strips I have created earlier. The center of the flowers is the same then the background behind it.
I left a small empty space for the Happy Birthday Sentiment I have created with the Sugar Coated Sentiments set and I also added some cookie die-cuts to make the card more sweet.
