If you have just arrived here from Gail’s blog on your blog hop; then Welcome  🙂   If you have just joined in then let me fill you in!  I am a member of  an online YAHOO group – ESAD-SU.  This stands for EXTRA SPECIAL AUSTRALIAN DEMONSTRATORS FOR STAMPIN’ UP!   This group is for Stampin’ Up! demonstrators in Australia and New Zealand and provides great support, information and often challenges, swaps and cyberstamps.  If you are a demonstrator and haven’t joined in yet why not stop by.  Now I’m not sure of the address but I’m sure when you stop by the next stop at Leonie’s then she will have all the details there.

This blog hop is to showcase the fantastic new products in the Summer Mini Catalogue released TODAY!!  How exciting!!  On this blog hop there are 30 blogs for you to visit.  Each one will show a  different project.  Now you can go in the draw to win some great blog candy by visiting all these blogs.  What you need to do is stop by EACH one and leave a comment on EACH blog.  Then email Leonie at to let her know you have completed the hop and left a comment with everyone. If you want to start at the first one on the blog hop then go back to Amy’s blog and make your way to each one from the link at the end of each blog.  You can join in at any point though.  Just make sure you keep track of where you have visited and don’t forget to leave a comment!!!!!

Now enough of all the details, let’s get on with showing you my project.  I am using the new Sweet Treat Cups (*116802).  These are fun little plastic cups that you can add to your cards or projects with an extra treat inside.  You might put some lollies inside or you might add a small toy or hairclips or something like that.  These little cups come with an adhesive strip on the bottom side.  What I found though was that you put so much work into your project or card and it is destroyed in 5 seconds with the person trying to quickly get the treat out.  I looked around the internet for a bit and there were variations of pull tabs so the person could slide the treat out.  So I came up with what I call the “Treat Cups Pocket”. I used the new set ‘Hello Again’ which is great value at $21.95 for 5 cute little stamps.

The Hello Tab sits in the pocket and pulls up to get to the treats, like this below.

I stamped the flower from this set on scrap Whisper White card several times. I cut 3 of the flowers out and adhered these to the front of the pocket and then cut just the centres out from 3 others. I added some 2 way glue and dazzling diamonds to the centre of the flowers, but you can’t see the bling on these photos. 

The circle is punched out on the inside so the treats can fall out.  Just warn the person receiving one of these that they come out quickly!!!! 

Here is the inside view.

The right side of the card is in shadow a bit so you can’t see that too well – Sorry about that!  I stamped the flower in Ruby Red straight on the card and then stamped the flower again on scrap card in Chocolate Chip.  I cut just the centre out and raised it on dimensionals.  I stamped the text from ‘Upsy Daisy’ in Chocolate Chip.


Stamps: Hello Again, Upsy Daisy.

Card: Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, Ruby Red, Whisper White.  Baja Breeze Patterns Designer Series Paper.

Ink: Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, Ruby Red.

Other: 1 3/4″ (4.4cm) Circle Punch, Circle Tab Punch, Corner Rounder Punch, 2 way glue, Dazzling Diamonds, Mounting Tape and don’t forget the sweets of your choice.

I would love to include a tutorial on how to make these but I might need to save that for another day.  It is time now for you to move on to the next stop on your journey.  I’d like you to stop by now at Lovely Leonie’s blog where I think she will show you something special with another great stamp set. 

Thanks for visiting and I hope you will stop by again soon.  (Don’t forget to leave your comment to be eligible for entry into the blog candy draw!)

  1. Thanks for showing a way to use the sweet treat cups without the matching stamp set as I have the cups but not the stamp set…the slider is just fabulous…preserves the card rather than just having it ripped into!! This is just the idea I have been looking for!!

  2. Thanks for the idea on how to use the sweet treat cups without the card getting ruined – i have been wondering if the card has to be destroyed to get the goodies out!

  3. What a great idea Jenny, easy to put together in no time. Great idea with the lift up tag saves all the work being ripped to pieces to get what’s inside.

  4. Hey Jenny, save the best for last, you were my last one on the blog hop and your idea of the slider is Brilliant! But can you tell me if there is a way to put a lock on this? Hugs, Tracy x

  5. Hey Jenny!! Cute-to- boot card. Even better it’s the card that keeps giving…at least til the sweets run out…LOL!! Brilliant and inspiring as usual. ooxx

  6. Love how you’ve used the sweet treat cups without the co-ordinating stamp set.

    I have this set but I love how you’ve shown the versatility of these cups – they can be used in all sorts of ways.

    Thanks for sharing

  7. Excellent idea, especially the access to the goodies so the receiver doesn’t destroy the card trying to get their treats out. Love it, thanks!

  8. Cool – I really want to get some of these Sweet Treat Cups now….but do I need to purchase the punch too? I love how this is a card & a gift all together. Great stamp set too. Chantell
