Bunny Sweet Treat Cup

I am having a lot of fun with the SU "Sweet Treat Cups".I used "Pretty in Pink" cardstock and layered it with paper from the "Sweet Pea Designer Series Pack".The bunny was made using the following SU punches: Large, wide, and small oval punches for the ears and feet. The "Ornament" punch for the head, , "Small Heart" punch for the nose and cut petals from the "Extra Large Fancy Flower" punch for the paws. The 2" circle from the SU "Circle #2" die was used for the body. SU "Chalks" and the "Singo gel pen" were used for shading. I popped up the head and ears using SU "Dimensionals" and SU "Snail Adhesive and Glue Dots" to secure the bunny to the page. I added some google eyes and whiskers with a basic black SU "Write Journaler" and filled the belly with jelly beans. I almost forgot I used SU "Whisper White" card stock.I hope you enjoy.

Happy Valentine's

This card was fairly easy since it is mostly done with SU punches and the "Top Note" die. CS used was "Pretty In Pink", "Whisper White" and "Bravo Burgundy". The card base is "Bravo Burgundy" and trimmed with "Pretty In Pink" that has been punched with the "Pinking Hearts Border" punch. Two "Top Note" die cuts were done, one using "Whisper White" CS that was run through the "Big Shot" using the "Perfect Polka Dots" impressions folder and the other a piece of DSP from the "Sending Love Speciality" speciality paper.The heart was cut using the SU "Scalloped Heart of Hearts" Embosslit die and the bird was done using DSP and the "Extra Large Two-Step Bird" punch. Embellishments included using designer buttons from the "Sherbet" series, SU "Linen Thread" and a tag punched with the "Medium Jewelry Tag" punch. The tag was stamped using the Valentine stamp from the "Holiday Best" Hostess Level 1 set.

Big thank you to Kim Score from for her paper punch instructions on "Naughty Kitty". I have wanted to try the Sweet Treat Cups and had an idea what I wanted to do but couldn't come up with the right design. I used her instructions and added my own touch using a treat cup for a fish bowl and put in some Pepperidge Farms Goldfish.
I used the CS So Saffron for the card base, paper from the SU Patterns Pack II (retired), Basic Gray for the body with Pretty In Pink to accent the ears and nose. For water I spritzed some SU Brocade Blue CS and ran it through the Big Shot using the Distressed textured plate from Sizzix.I added a SU Felt Flower, drew in a few dashes, added whiskers, paw and mouth markings and completed this naughty kitty with some goggle eyes. I think it is "stinkin cute". Don't you agree?
