My Pink Designers Spring Treats!

Hello Everyone!

It's Tuesday and you all know what that means, right?  It is time to see 2 of My Pink Designer's showcased with their Spring Treat's projects!  I think they turned out AWESOME!  I hope you all enjoy them, too!

Back to Basics is a One Inch Bag from the TBBM cricut cartridge. You can find this bag on page #128 of the cartridge handbook.



---cut at w11 x h5.75 inches using a Martha Stewart cardstock in kraft color.---the two shapes (called card 1) are from the sentimental cricut cartridge on page #65.
One is cut at w4.25 x h3.4 and the other one is cut at w4.5 x h3.5 inches. the brown shadow shape cardstock is from DCWV Green stack and the green color shape is from the paper studio/pink armadillo small stack.
---the back to basics phrase is also from the sentimental cricut cartridge on page #40 and cut at w2.5 x h3.5 inches.


 the shadow cardstock is an MS kraft cs again and the blue patterned paper is from colorbok/friendly forest. i used my white gelly roll pen from sakura to add some dot doodles to the letters.
---the red flower is from the stamping solutions cricut cartridge, #20 on the overlay pad and cut at 1 inch.
---the green gem is from my stash, lol and the red dotted ribbon from american crafts. the whole project was inked and the flower was popped with foam adhesive.
---the small tags are from TBBM cut at 1.75-1.50 inches high and the sentiment and mini flower on them are from my pink stamper clear rubber stamps, simply sweet occasions set.


***************
I also made this other bag called Shopping Bag and it is also from the TBBM cricut cartridge. You can find it on page #114 of the cartridge handbook.


---cut at w8.25 x h7 inches using another Martha Stewart cardstock, this time in a dark/navy blue.

---the three shapes are the cricut cartridge songbird from page 62 (it's called frame2). i cut these shapes/frames at: w3.79 x h 4.99; w3.55 x h4.68 and w3.39 x h4.47. I used three different cs/pp for them. The bigger size is a cs from k&co/amy butler...the solid red is from the paper studio and the one with the white background (which reminds of different colors bird nests) is from atd/candy blossoms small stack.

---the word chirp is also from the songbird cartridge and is cut at: w2.5 x 2 inches and the red base is cut at w2.76 x h2.21 inches.

---the birds are from a fiskars punch using dcwv glitter cardstock. two of the birds are popped up with two different sizes of foam adhesive...one is a bit higher than the other. the green chirp was again outlined with cricut markers for more definition.
---the small tags are from TBBM cut at 1.75-1.50 inches high and the sentiments/mini flower on them are from my pink stamper clear rubber stamps simply sweet occasions set.

---the small bit of green ribbon is from american crafts again and the bronze color chain from somewhere in the house, lol.

---the whole project except the bag itself was inked. I love inking :) 


***my idea for this One Inch Bag is  to put some birdfood in it and give it also as a Spring Treat Gift for the backyard birds. You can modify and embellish this one too for any other season/holiday as needed.

Using my Gypsy, I welded the ice cream cone border from DoodleCharms to a rectangle from George to create a card base about 4.25" x 6". Then I used digital gingham paper from Pink Petticoat to create a "liner" for my card. Next, I cut two more borders ... one from light brown cardstock and one from white cardstock. I embossed the light brown cardstock with the Herringbone embossing folder and my Cuttlebug; for the white border, I snipped off the cones and used the white tops as the highlight behind the ice cream. I adhered these to the base using an ATG gun.

I cut the layers from cream, dark brown, pink and red cardstock. To add a little dimension, I inked the edges of the ice cream layers and cones with Stampin' Up markers. I adhered the layers to the card with pop dots, using thinner pop dots for the chocolate cone. For a little bling, I added Stickles to the cherries and the ice cream highlights.


The sentiment is a stamp from My Pink Stamper's Everyday Occasions set, stamped with brown ink.

For the inside, I added a little ribbon, then, using a 2.5" x 4" piece of gingham paper and the slit punch from Stampin' Up, made the gift card holder (adhered with ATG gun).

Hope you like this ... now I'm ready for some ice cream!

  26. Nice collection of projects for treats and the card for the Dairy Queen gift certificate is cute too. The brown c/s certainly looks like an ice cream cone. Yummy!

    In your first post for the treat bags, may I suggest you go back to the font that you used to describe the ice cream card? The small font is terribly hard on the eyes and difficult to read. Hope you don't mind me saying so....
