Today I’m sharing another fun card I made with the Sweetest Thing stamp set, Jar of Sweets Framelits Dies, and How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper. I just love the colors in this set. They’re all so fun and happy. I used a scrap of Pineapple Punch cardstock – right out of the scrap drawer – for the sentiment, continuing my quest to use up a bunch of my scraps. I used Stampin’ Write Markers to color in the candies. While Gorgeous Grape is the purple used in the paper, I used a Highland Heather marker instead, because I thought the Gorgeous Grape would be too dark in this instance. You could use Gorgeous Grape with a Blender Pen to lighten it up.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Melon Mambo card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Whisper White CS layer cut to 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″
  • How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper (DSP) layer cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″
  • Pineapple Punch CS cut to 4-1/4″ x 1″ (Why this size? Because that’s the size it was when I pulled it out of the scrap drawer.)
  • Whisper White CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″ for the inside of the card base

Stamped with the Sweetest Thing stamp set:

  • sentiment in black ink onto the Pineapple Punch CS strip
  • candy jar in black ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS
  • jelly beans in black ink inside the candy jar
  • 3 wrapped candies in black ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS

Colored using Stampin’ Write Markers:

  • jelly beans in Coastal Cabana, Granny Apple Green, Melon Mambo, Pineapple Punch, and Highland Heather
  • 3 candies in Granny Apple Green
  • NOTE: You can use  Gorgeous Grape with a Blender Pen instead of the Highland Heather.

Die cut using the Jar of Sweets Framelits:

  • candy jar and 3 candies

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • Whisper White CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • DSP layer glued onto the Whisper White CS layer
  • Pineapple Punch CS strip glued onto the DSP layer
