Isn’t Stampin’ Up!’s Sweetest Cherries just the cutest? The stamp set and punch combo make it an affordable purchase, as well as easy and versatile to use. Purchase them as a bundle and save 10 percent. Find them on page 19 of Stampin’ Up!’s 2022-2023 Annual Catalog.
Today, I paired the bundle with Stampin’ Up!’s Peekaboo Treat Bags. Find these on page 140 of Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. You receive 10 treat bags (five craft and five white) for $6.00. There are so many ways to dress these up. I’m just showing you one option. I added pieces of Designer Series Paper (pieces of Old Olive from the Regals 6 x 6 Paper Assortments). But you could stamp on them and add tags and die cuts.
I can see them work for special occasions such as Thanksgiving and Christmas. But they would also work well as gift card holders and most especially sweet treats. I found a variety of fun, cherry flavored candies to put in these after decorating.
Be sure to watch the video to learn a fun technique using clear embossing powder. This technique gives the cherry a lifelike shine.

Although I’m just getting started playing with this bundle, I’m happy with this cute birthday card and coordinating treat packet. I selected the new 2022-2024 In Colors: Sweet Sorbet, Tahitian Tide, and Parakeet Party. (Starry Sky and Orchid Oasis round out this year’s new In Colors.)
I love that Stampin’ Up! offers a bunch of coordinating products to make creating easy and fun. Here are a few of the products I used to make the handmade card:
2022-2024 In Color cad stock
6 x 6 2022-2024 In Color Designer Series Paper Assortments
2022-2024 In Color 6 x 6 Glimmer Paper
Baker’s Twine Pack
Tahitian Tide ink
Stitched Rectangles Dies
And, I had to include a cute treat packet made with some of the same supplies. Isn’t this super cute? I searched the grocery stores to find cherry flavored foods. The Mini Pocket Envelopes Dies make creating these a snap. Use a 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ inch piece of patterned party and cut with the die in the Stampini’ Cut & Emboss. Fold, apply some tear and tape, and it’s ready to decorate. These little holders are perfect for treats and gift cards. See this blog post for other examples using this die.

Each new Stampin’ Up! catalog presents opportunities to play with new stamp sets, Designer Series Paper, embellishments, and more. The Uniquely Artistic stamp set is one of those new products. Find it on page 114 of the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. I received it with my recent registration for a Stampin’ Up! virtual event. It’s one of my favorite things about being a demonstrator: receiving sneak peeks of new products.
When I received the set, I wasn’t quite sure where to start with a card design. So, I turned to the Annual Catalog and used the the samples within for inspiration.
I CASEd the above card from the catalog sample on page 115. It features the colors of Daffodil Delight and Mint Macaron. I embossed the background piece with the Gingham Embossing folder.
Uniquely Artistic Card Samples
The two cards below use heat embossing as the main technique.
The card above uses a sentiment from the Lovely You stamp set punched with the Double Oval Punch. I grabbed the gorgeous piece of Designer Series Paper from the Abstract Beauty 6 x 6 package. (If you love this Designer Series Paper, order it now. It’s going to retire!)
This beautiful card uses products from the Love & Happiness Bundle from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog. Hint: This, too, is retiring, so grab it before it’s gone.
