A Set of Sweet Treats

I said it would be something different on here today, didn't I? I've made a whole set of things because I got so inspired by some new stamps.

I've dotted the challenges that I'm entering the different items into throughout the post but hopefully it's easy enough for everyone to follow.

Okay, the whole set are my DT items for the Colour Create Challenge

The Colour Create Challenge has been set by Sylvia and she picked White, Cream and Brown as the colours to use today. The optional extras are to use one other colour of your choice, flowers and buttons. Hmmmm, in my excitement, I forgot the buttons but I did manage everything else.

We're sponsored by High Hopes stamps and there is a fab prize of 5 stamps for the winner of this challenge.

I'm also going to enter the full set of items into the Truly Scrumptious challenge of Anything Goes

Now, how yummy does this choc chip muffin look? Such a shame it's just ink, acrylic paint, ribbon, card, beads and tissue paper! These two photos give a close up of the new WMS gingham & co stamps that inspired me so much; this set is brilliant and as you can see - it's really versatile. The gingham check is stamped up in Peeled Paint distress ink. The polka dot is stamped in brown Versacolour. I couldn't resist adding beads to the polka dots to make it a choc chip - see below for the half finished photo.

I've made this cupcake in honour of Waltzing Mouse Stamps 2nd birthday (because they are the stamps that inspired this whole set).

You can read all about the WMS Birthday Tea Party here and there's still a couple of days left to enter. There's a HUGE prize and you don't have to purchase any of the WMS items to enter because they do have some free templates that will fit.

I used the cuppie love template to make this cake - just changed the topping to suit what I wanted to do, then added 2 'candles' for the 2nd birthday.

Next up is a little box of cookies.

I've made this one for A Spoonfull of Sugar Challenge - Anything Goes
I used masking with post-it notes to get the two colours of ink onto the label. I hope I managed to give it an aged 'thin wood' appearance because that was what I set out to achieve.

Now one of my favourite items; the tea cup. Who in their right mind would stamp it up in, that's who! Looks so cute though, doesn't it?

This type of paper crafting is not my usual thing to do because as a rule I don't get enough time, but I must admit I love this type of thing and it is the 3rd time I've used this particular template. Here's a link to one I made earlier

I also made a matching card; once again mixing the sentiment from 2 labels in the Rescue Remedies set.

I'm entering this card into the Waltzing Mouse Sketch challenge because it is based on the sketch that they've created for this week.

And finally, the little Tea Baggie which has been made for the

One Stitch At A Time Challenge where the theme is Anything Goes.

Again I did more masking with post it notes so that the label themes in with the rest of the items today.

I hope you'll take a look at all the amazing projects from our design team at colour create this week; they all made incredibly feminine cards this week and they are all gorgeous.

We're sponsored by High Hopes Stamps this time around and there's a brilliant prize of 5 stamps.

Thanks so much for looking and I do hope you enjoyed these items,

Sharon xx

I almost have no WORDS! This tea set is sooo SPECTACULAR! I cannot get over the syrup on your looks just like the real thing! The sketch card is amazing with your strips of stamping, looks like layered ribbon. The tea cup so dainty and sweet, and so is that box with the perfectly stamped label and embellishments. Well, I guess I found words, huh?! Hee! GREAT JOB!
