I made these cute little cups for my stamp club and for Buffy to give her at OnStage. Stampin’ Up!® sells these adorable little cups and tops, called Sweet Cups in the Occasions Catalog. They come in white but you can stamp them or cover them with cardstock or Designer Series Paper. I covered mine using the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper. I cut out a circle for the top out of Melon Mambo cardstock using the Layering Circle Dies. I stamped the Bunny from Fable Friends and cut it out for my Club Members to put on top because out meeting was close to Easter. I forgot to take a picture of them when I was done so you can’t see how cute they were. I stamped Buffy’s sentiment using the stamp set called Eastern Beauty and punched it out using a new punch that will be in the Annual Catalog. I love this sentiment and I truly feel this way about Buffy. She is one of my favorite people. Then, of course, I had to fill them with Easter Candy. They are called Sweet Cups for a reason!
Unfortunately some of the products I used on these Sweet Cups are retiring. The cups themselves will be gone at the end of May (or while supplies last), The How Sweet It Is DSP and the stamp set Eastern Beauty are also retiring.
I promised pictures of Madelyn since she turned four last week. I can’t believe how grown up she is. She is so funny because she is such a Tom Boy but she also loves to wear sparkly princess dresses and she also loves to play Super Hero. In the second picture she is A Super Hero Paw Patrol Princess! I think that about says it all!
If you have been following my blog for a while you know that I am not a big cutesy stamp person. I do think those kinds of stamp sets are cute, they are just not what I buy. So what happens? The most amazing, beautiful, handsome and smart grandchildren come along. My wonderful daughter in law asked me to make Valentines for them and I look around and have very few cute, kid sets. All I had was retired dinosaurs and elephants. Well, I decided this just would not do. What will happen when they get a little older, come to visit and want to stamp with me? So, now I am buying some sets with them in mind.
Fable Friends is one of these sets. It is cute. The bunny is adorable. Even thought the squirrel is a , um, squirrel, it is also cute. Look at these ducks. They are so sweet!
To make this card I first stamped the ducks in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then colored them using my Granny Apple Green, Night Of Navy, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Balmy Blue and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends. The grass is from the stamp set called High Tide and the sentiment is from Life Is Grand, a stamp set in the 2019 Occasions Catalog. The Designer Series Paper is Gala Gingham.
