Sweet Treat Cups

This card was inspired by Karen Fontinelle's card as found here on her blog.  I liked her idea for filling the sweet treat cup with the white Chunky Essential Stampin' Glitter  from Stampin' Up, as this gives the appearance of snow.   When the card is shaken the chunky glitter moves around and is reminiscent of a snow globe.  I used the Frost White Shimmer Paint to stamp Serene Snowflakes on the background layer.  Can you tell that the shimmer paint is one of my favorite new products in the Holiday Mini Catalog?!

Cardstock:  Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Real Red

Even though it's a little early for Valentine's Day, I just had to play with the heart stamp in the Sweet Centers stamp set to see if my idea for using red hots candies in the cup would work.
