Project 4 – Sweet Treat Cups!

Hello everyone!

So … did you get a giggle from my ‘Downright Ugly” card yesterday? Not many comments … you must all be being very polite! 😀 I have the last of our 4 projects from my recent Sweet Treat Cups Class for you today! This idea was CASED from ANDREA BUCKLAND’S gorgeous sample! I had already finished preparing my Sweet Treat Cups Class … but when I saw this great card … I just knew I had to share it with my stamping buddies! The “secret window” was a MUST to learn! So … this was the bonus project that we made at my class! I had prepared this project well and truly before Convention … and … at that point I didn’t know Andrea at all. But a mutual blog friend asked Andrea to look for me at Convention and take a photo for her (thanks Lee-Anne) … and so she did just that! It was lovely to meet her and have a nice chat.  Imagine my surprise when I came to post this card here … and realised that it was the same Andrea who had created this FAB project that had caught my eye! So … thanks Andrea for sharing this super idea!

And … as with the other class projects … I have prepared a step-by-step tutorial … and all card measurements & colours can be found on the card recipe at the end of the post!

If you haven’t seen the other 3 projects from this class … here are the links (click on pics) …


Off to the shops with my mum. Skye’s 18th is less than 4 weeks away … and I would like to have a look for her birthday present. I’m not really in the mood (feeling a bit “fluey” again)  … but … hey … my mum enjoys the time out … so that will be nice! We will have a nice cup of coffee … C U Soon! Stampin’ Hugs xxx

    Have just commented on the “duckling card” and this one MORE than makes up for it. I did see this one on Andrea B’s site and loved the idea. I think you have done a FAB job with it too. I get such a feeling of lightness and soaring looking at this!! Brilliant!! Please take care of you….we don’t wanna crook Andrea. Esp with all u have on your plate.
    Cake made it to school and was squealed at by those who felt the need!!! Will post some pics soon (hopefully). Off to do the groceries now!! Bucketing down here at the mo….dunno abt sport this w’end?? My knee is being OVER rested!!! AAARRRGGGGHHHH. ooxx
    Andrea adds: LOL! I can feel your frustration … but don’t share it … having always been a dunderhead when it comes to sport! I was always the one that came last in my races at school. Thanks for the thumbs up on this one … after sharing my ugly duckling (although I don’t think it will ever become a swan) … I was feeling a little deflated (self inflicted pain!!!) So … I was in a real hurry to post something worth seeing!!! Hugs Andrea xx

      My darl’n Andrea…wheter swan or not it is always wonderful to live vicariously thru someone elses creative expression. You have no idea how many procrastinators there are out there…who luv seeing your efforts and think ‘if only I cld stop procrastinating long enough to give something like this a go!!” Please don’t stop. Stay dry and stay sane!! ooxx Ohhhhhh just been reminded that Hubby proposed to me in a balloon too!! ooxx
      Andrea adds: Oh … how romantic … perhaps you should try this one for your next anniversary! And … thanks for the little “push” … I have so lost my mojo at the moment … I think just too tired … but it is nice to know you are enjoying my offerings … even the ugly ones!!! 😉 Hugs Andrea xx

    What a great card Andrea! Love that hot air balloon. I have that stamp and used it couple of times… I should take it out again! Love the clouds and the trees! Very creative scene! :o)
    Andrea adds: I can’t take all the credit for this one … but it was a fun card to create! Thanks for stopping by! Hugs Andreaxx
