Sweet as can be...


This is my very first sneak peek as a member of the SUINK DT, and how sweet it is!


I am personally looking forward to the promise of sweet beginnings and of course, lots of new stamps Evilsmile

"Sweet Things" is one of two adorable new sets which will be available for purchase tomorrow January 1, 2009 at the Storage Units, Ink & More

You can view my "sneak peak" post here
along with all the other amazingly-fabu previews the DT has been
posting. I just had to share this here as well so that you don't miss
this stinkin' cute set! 


started out by making my standard 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card and I drew my
pattern right from the score line of the card base. Once I cut out the
basic shape of the cup (through both layers) I cut out the inside of
the "handle".  I cut out the strip of cream and embossed a bit of the
edge with white distress powder to give it a little more texture, and
then adhered it to the "cup".  This was really very easy and i am happy
to share the pattern with you, if you want to try making your own: 
Now, I have to warn you  - this was hand-drawn so it's FAR from perfect, but once you embellish it it won't be too shabby I think! :o)

I used a little "truffle" image (also included in
the set) to make my decorative pattern on the cup, and also added other
assorted chocolates to embellish the inside of the card!

Here's a picture of the inside of the cup:


So here's to hoping 2009 brings us Peace and lots of "Sweet Things" to celebrate!
