Stamp Review Crew - Cool Treats

Hello!  and welcome to another Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop this time featuring the stamp set Cool Treats.  The Stamp Review Crew pick certain sets to feature as a group, so the hop is a little different than others in the fact that all the bloggers feature just the one set for the whole hop.  This gives you a great variety of ideas as how you can use the set.  After the hop at any time you can go to the main link Cool Treats and see all our creations there.  If you are following the hop in order you have just arrived from my friend, Holly Krautkremer's Blog and her fun creations with this stamp set.  Love them!
Cool Treats
 This is such a fun set to work with and so many fun options to put together.  I wanted to try and think outside the box a bit and do something total unrelated to ice cream.  Here's what I came up with.
The ice cream topper reminded me of Troll hair.  So I decided to make a little troll girl to go with that hair.  Colors I used were Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Pacific Post, and Pink Pirouette.  I also used the Melon Mambo DSP from the Brights Family Stack.  I used stamps from the set for her hair, smile, and eyebrows and the Birthday Saying.  Punches I used were Cookie Cutter Builder, Fox Builder,  Owl Builder, Sprinkles, and Blossom Builder.  Can you guess how I used them?
I used our Layering Oval Framelit dies as her backdrop.  adding dimenionals to the back.  There are also framelits that go with this stamp set called Tasty Treats and I at first cut out her hair with it but it was too small, so I stamp another and fussy cut it out and it fit perfectly after I rounded it off a bit at the scalp with a punch.  A few little rhinestones made a little sparkle to the card.  Adding the Happiest Birthday saying finished my card off.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Please leave me a comment if you would like.  I love hearing you.  Now it's time to hop on over to my stampin' friend, Bronwyn Eastley and see what fun projects she has to share with us.  Just click on the button below and it will take you there.
