time to play wiht my sweet treats

about time i think! they have sat in my embellishments box for a while now quietly whispering to me "use us clare use us" and seeing i have yet to purchase a corresponding stamp set the task to use them without one has been more challenging because i don't like limiting myself to what must be used and like to think outside the box a bit so hence these cards made for some friends who were celebrating their birthdays this butterfy card turned into a shaker card. i added a mixture of glitter to the inside and used the sweet treats cup to highlight the butterfly i used the inspired by nature set just in monotone black and made the butterfly stand out by using bright colours and sparkle. the next card was made inspired by our friend's surname of wales...hence the whale lol being a guy and all you can't have too girly a card so i made a snow globe from the sweet treat which is sooooooooooo easy to do. i added a bit of pacific point ink to the water as well as some glitter which when swished up makes the water all sparkley. i also embossed the white background to give it a bit of texture. okies all done cheers ears
