A Little Treat for Someone So Sweet

Whimsical Wednesday is back with another challenge! This week's challenge theme is 'With Love' - create any loved theme project for a chance to win some great blog candy!

Although Stephanie has an awesome 'With Love' stamp set in her shop, I chose to use a sentiment from the 'Whimsical Fun Vol. 1' stamp set since it matched my card better. Ever since I got the Sweethearts Cricut cartridge for Christmas I've been admiring this gum ball machine die cut, and couldn't wait to have the opportunity to use on a card.

The gum ball machine is cut at 3.5" and adhered using pop dots on some fun patterned paper by DCWV. I cut the shape of the card at 5.5" using the Artiste cartridge. The pearls are from Miriam's Crafting Supplies... I love how they match the blue in the paper so perfectly!

I used vellum to give the machine a glassy look and used Cotton Candy Stickles on the heart. 

Here's a close up of the sentiment, which is distressed with Spun Sugar Tim Holtz Distress Ink and adhered onto some washi tape (my first time using washi, ever!) from Recollections. 

Don't forget to stop by Whimsical Designs to take a peek at the other design team members' wonderful creations and enter this week's 'With Love' challenge! We can't wait to see what you create!
