Newcastle Craft Expo
Just had to share some photos with you of the cards I am demonstrating at the Newcastle Craft Expo this weekend. My product demo was the sweet treat cups showing several different ways to mount them on a card and also the variety of fun things you can put in them.
I used the Designer Series paper on each card from the Bella Bleu Patterns pack. This one I filled with ginger bears.... they might be fun to give to a pregnant friend if she is experiencing morning sickness all day.
My card is opened using a sliding door to let the jelly-bear-babies fall out from the back. I have decorated the slider with the bird in a cage from Happy Moments stampset.
(A FREE stampset during SALEABRATION when you spend $100).
On my second card I have used the sweet treat cup as a glitter and shaker for gold hearts. The Cardstock is kiwi kiss, the patterned paper is bella bleu once again and the bird from Happy Moments.
I love gold hearts and super fine glitter together. The hole for the sweet treat cup is punched with a 1 3/4" circle punch. The cup is glued down with its own sticky strip tape at the back. After you have put the glitter and hearts in the bowl.
I have added a piece of chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon and an oval punch for the Happy birthday sentiment at the top and some sponged ink for definition.
