Sweet Treats for you...

I got a VERY late start this morning! I slept in...until 9 am! Mind you, that's after taking a 45 minute power nap yesterday afternoon! Geez...I NEVER do that! Guess my body was trying to tell me something, huh?

But it wasn't too late to check out the SCS Featured Stamper challenge, and play along! Today's featured stamper is none other than Jaydekay . I'm sure many of you have been to her gallery before. If not, you're in for a real treat...there's LOTS of inspiration there!

Her card that inspired mine can be seen HERE .


I used the same stamp, which is one of my faves. It's Stampendous Tiers of Treats . I stamped on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine Ink , then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder.

The image was colored using Tombow (water based) markers and a damp paint brush. I used my Quickie Glue Pen for adhesive on several of the treats, then added Crystal Ultrafine Glitter for a little bling! The strawberries and cherries were covered with a light coat of JudiKins Diamond Glaze for a bit of dimension and gloss.

The designer paper is from the Basic Grey Bittersweet paper pad. I LOVE that stuff! The hearts were also punched from Bittersweet scraps using an EK punch I've had forever!

The cardstock is Blush Red Prismatics dark, Suede Brown Prismatics light, and Pink Prismatics .

The sentiment on the inside is a favorite of mine. It's Penny Black's Special Treasures . I think it's appropriate for a friend at Valentine's Day...or any other time, for that matter.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I appreciate each and every one of you and the kind comments you leave for me. I'm working on something new, so I will be back soon! Until then...
