Stampin’ Up! Valentine Sweet Treat Box

I made Valentine Sweet Treat Boxes from the Stampin’ Up! Popcorn Box Thinlets Dies for my share today.  

Valentine Treat

 

These Popcorn Boxes are so versatile, and they come together quickly.  I used them at Christmas time for little candy treat boxes and really, they can be decorated for any special holiday treats. 

 

Valentine Treat

I started by creating the Popcorn Boxes with the Popcorn Box Thinlets Dies and the Brights Designer Series Paper Stacks Real Red paper.  For the box on the left, I die cut the large heart from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlets Dies and a panel of Sending Love DSP.  I used Gold Foil, Dazzling Diamonds, and Real Red card stock to die cut the medium sized hearts from the Love Notes Framelits Dies.  Next I stamped From Me to You, one of the sentiments from Ready to Pop,  in Versa Mark ink and sprinkled it with Gold Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  

For the Valentine Sweet Treat box on the right, I used another sentiment from Ready to Pop, and embossed it in Gold also. The Gold Foil arrow was die cut with the Love Notes Framelits.  The Whisper White sentiment heart and the Real Red Heart were also die cut with the Love Notes Framelits and the banner is a panel of the Sending Love DSP cut with the Banner Triple Punch.  

Valentine Sweet

I know I have used quite a few different products today, but I hope I have shown you that if you look carefully at your stamp sets and framelits, you may find many ways to use them!   Now, do I give away these chocolate covered truffle hearts inside the carefully packaged Valentine Sweet Treat boxes (with 6 x 8 Celophane bags), or do I just unwrap them and save them for myself?!!

A complete list of products used for these boxes will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Special Reason Thanks

I created 3 very quick and easy thank you cards for today using the Stampin’ Up! Special Reason stamp set. I am going to go ahead and share all 3 of them even though one of them is not up to my standards!

 

Reason

 

 Normally, I do more than one layer on my cards, mostly because I really like layers.  And, if you make a mistake, it is usually easy to disguise it or cover it up!  But not on one layer Whisper White Note Cards!  Notice my Peekaboo Peach card?  I stamped the center flower upside down and to me it looks sort of sad 🙁  But since all three cards are going to diffferent people, the one who receives the Peekaboo Peach one may not realize my mistake-maybe she will like it anyway!  At least, I hope so!  

 

Reason

 

For this first card, I stamped the sentiment, from One Big Meaning, in Flirty Flamingo ink.  In order to get the words lined up correctly, I used my stamp-a-ma-jig.  I am so thankful for these things!  Next, I stamped the largest flower image from Special Reason full strength in Flirty Flamingo.  The smaller flower images were stamped first onto a scrap piece of paper, then onto the front of the card.  Last, I stamped the leaf images, also from Special Reason, in Wild Wasabi ink.

 

Reason

 

I used the same process for this card, using Sweet Sugarplum ink.  I know I have mentioned it before, but this color is really addictive, I just love it.  If you don’t have it, you need it.  And, normally I am not a pink/sugarplum lover! 

 

Reason

 

See, don’t you think this poor little flower looks droopy and sad in relation to the others? Anyway, this one was done in Peekaboo Peach ink, stamping some full strength and some images stamped off onto a scrap paper first.  

Special Reason is new and found on page 42 in the Occasions catalog.  The coordinating dies are called Stylish Stems and there are not only dies for the flowers and leaves, but 2 of the dies are for labels .  Purchase them as bundle and save 10%.

Stampin’ Up! Best Birds for Happy Inkin’ Thursday

Happy Inkin' Thursday

It’s Thursday again!  Wow, the weeks roll around quickly, don’t they?  I used the Stampin’ Up! Best Birds Bundle for my share today.  This set is found in the Annual Catalog, but it is new to me.  I have had it for a few months, but have just not gotten around to using it.  Crazy, right?  Besides saving 10% when you order the Best Birds and Birds & Blooms Thinlets Dies, the stamps are photopolymer, which are my favorite style of stamps to work with!

Here is our color challenge this week:

Best Birds Color challenge

And, my card:

Best Birds

 

The branches from Best Birds, were stamped in Early Expresso ink on a panel of Shimmery White card stock.  Next, I stamped the bird image on another panel of Shimmery White and began to color it with a blender pen and Peekaboo Peach, then some Bermuda Bay.  When I was finished coloring, I used the Birds & Blooms Thinlets Dies to cut out the branches and the bird.  I stamped the single flower and the flower and blossom images in Early Expresso onto a panel of Peekaboo Peach and die cut them, also.

 

Best Birds

The background stamp is also from Best Birds, and was stamped in Early Expresso on Shimmery White card stock. I actually stamped it off two times before stamping on the art panel because I did not want it to overpower the scene. The top two branches were adhered to the art panel with liquid glue and the bird and his branch were popped on with dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment onto a panel of Peekaboo Peach in Early Expresso and die cut it with one of the Popcorn Box Thinlets Dies.  One extra banner was cut with Early Expresso card stock to add behind the sentiment banner.  

Best Birds

I stamped the other bird image from Best Birds first in Early Expresso ink, then filled in as before quickly blending some Peekaboo Peach and Bermuda Bay inks over his body.  

A complete list of supplies as well as card stock cuts for this card may be found at the end of my post.  


 

And now, time to hop on over to see what Kristi has created for us today!

Stampin’ Up! Sealed With Love Valentine Gift Bags

I used several different stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! to create my Valentine Gift Bags for today.  These bags were actually used at my Open House for my guests to take their goodies home in, you may remember this picture from my post. 

I forgot to show you the close ups and more information on how to make them in case you’d like to make some of your own Valentine Gift Bags

 

Valentine Gift Bags

 

For these two bags, I used the Sealed With Love Bundle, using Real Red and Soft Sky card stock for my heart cut outs and some Sending Love Designer Series Paper for the scalloped die cut.  I fussy cut out a heart on the bag on the right, from one of the Sending Love DSP pages.  I also added a pretty Lace Doily to the bag on the left.  Both bags are stamped with Real Red ink. 

 

Valentine Gift Bags

 

For these two bags, I pulled out my Bloomin’ Heart Thinlets and my Sunshine Wishes Thinlets and some Gold Glimmer Paper.  I used the sentiment and lips stamp from Sealed With Love and stamped them in Real Red.  For the bag on the left, I die cut the open heart from Love Notes Framelits and threaded the arrow, also from the Love Note Framelite, through it.  The large Gold Glimmer heart was die cut with one of the heart dies from the Sweet & Sassy Framelits and the small hearts were from one of the Mini Treat Bag Thinlets Dies.  

 

Valentine Treat Bag

 

 

For this bag, I die cut another Bloomin’ Heart in Real Red and added some Rhinestones to the flower centers.  Then, I made a little envelope with a Sending Love Glassine Sheet and the Love Notes Framelits Die.  The small note on the inside was stamped on Whisper White and then die cut.  The small heart on the envelope flap was stamped with a stamp from Sealed With Love and also die cut.  

I hope you enjoyed my Valentine Treat Bags today!  I know I used a lot of different products, but you can see that there are many stamps and die sets that will work for this type of bag!  I purchased the handled bags at Hobby Lobby.

Stampin’ Up! Avant Garden Hello

Happy Sunday, thanks for stopping by!  My share today is from the FREE Avant Garden stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  Wow, do I love this set.  It is my first time using it, and I already have another card in mind for it!  

 

Avant Garden

This is a very clean and simple card to do, it came together in just a few minutes.  We all need those cards every now and then, right?  I started with a Wild Wasabi card base and stamped the dotted images from Avant Garden all over it in the same colored ink.  

Avant Garden

 

Next, I went to work creating my “garden”.  I stamped the flower image from Avant Garden in Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach, stamping off some of them to get different shades of color. The flower centers are stamped in Soft Suede ink.   Then, I added the leaf images,  randomly stamping in Wild Wasabi ink.  I added the Hello sentiment from Flourishing Phrases, in Soft ink.  I chose a pattern from the Playful Palette DSP stack and adhered it at angle onto the base with liquid glue.  The art panel was then popped onto the front with dimenstionals.  

 

Avant Garden

 

I added some more flowers and leaves to the bottom of the Very Vanilla panel and adhered it with liquid glue for the inside.  Violá, very quick and easy!  Now, don’t  you love this set, too?  Remember, with any $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration, this set can be yours for FREE, too!

Stampin’ Up! Special Reason Thank You

I used the Stampin’ Up! Special Reason Bundle and the All Things Thanks stamp set to create my card for today.  

Special Reason

 

The inspiration for the card design is from CAS(E) this Sketch #205.  I hope you’ll check out the other cards there and try your hand at the sketch, too.  

CTS #205

 

I started with a panel of Crumb Cake card stock and stamped You’re The Best from All Things Thanks in Versa Mark ink.  Then I sprinkled the sentiment with White Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  Once it had cooled, I adhered it to my Island Indigo card stock base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  

 

Special Reason

Next, I pulled out the large flower die from the Stylish Stems Framelits Dies and cut my Whisper White panel.  Then, I die cut the stem and leaves also from that die set, in Mint Macaron card stock.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a panel of Blooms and Bliss DSP with liquid glue, then adhered both of those panels to a slightly larger panel of Mint Macaron card stock.  The stem and leaves were glued down with a little of the stem extending over the edge.  I tied a strand of Linen Thread around all 3 layers and then popped that art panel onto the front of the card with dimensionals.

 

Special Reason

 

For the inside of the card, I stamped another sentiment from All Things Thanks in Versa Mark ink and added White Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  I really wanted to stamp one of the  flower images from Special Reason, so I decided to add a small flower to the inside.  

 

Special Reason

To make it look mottled like the flower on the front, I stamped it first in Mint Macaron ink, then pulled out my blender pen and added some Island Indigo ink all over it.  The leaves are dies from Stylish Stems die cut in Mint Macaron.  

If you do not have the Special Reason Bundle, I encourage you to get it, you will love it!  It’s found on page 42 of the Occasions Catalog.  If you have not seen the YouTube video on the framelits, HERE it is for you to view.  

 

You will find a complete list of products as well as card stock cuts in inches at the end of my post.

Cool Treats for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Inkin' Thursday

It’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday, and I am sharing a card that features the Cool Treats Bundle from Stampin’ Up!  This week we have a sketch challenge. 

Happy Inkin' Thursday Cool

 

Here is my take on the sketch with Cool Treats

Cool

 

I started with a panel of Crumb Cake for my card base.  Next, I cut two different panels from the Tasty Treats DSP and adhered them to a panel of Pool Party with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then, I cut a panel of Burlap Ribbon and attached it to the front and back with Tear & Tape adhesive.

 

Cool

 

Then, it was time for the fun part-the stamping!  I stamped three scoops of ice cream using the scoop stamp from Cool Treats.  I used Peekaboo Peach, Watermelon Wonder, and Crumb Cake ink. The chocolate topping and cherry stems were stamped with Chocolate Chip ink and the cherries in Watermelon Wonder.   Then, all were die cut using the Frozen Treats Framelits.  This set has 17 dies and when you purchase them with Cool Treats, you save 10%.  Add any of the items from the Cool Treats Suite found on pages 32 and 33 and you can choose a free product from the Sale-A-Bration flyer!  Yippee!!

The sentiment was stamped using the ink to rubber method, where I colored the letters with my Stampin’ Write markers, huffed on them a couple of times and then stamped onto a panel of Whisper White.  The banner was die cut with a die from the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlets.  

The Oval was cut with one of the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies(now orderable!!) For the scalloped Crumb Cake rectangle, I first cut a square from one of the largest dies from the Layering Squares Framelits, then, cut off one side a little more to create a rectangle.  

Cool

The inside sentiments are also from Cool Treats, and I used Peekaboo Peach and Pool Party ink.

A complete list of supplies and card stock cuts are at the end of the post.

Stampin’ Up! Sealed With Love for Catalog Launch

I am a little late in posting this as my 2017 Catalog Launch Open House was a few days ago, but life has been a little hectic!  I am sharing a card my attendees made using the Sealed With Love Bundle. The inspiration for this card came directly from the Occasions catalog.  Sometimes, it just is too easy to find inspiration there, especially when you are planning games, making gift bags, cutting card stock, cleaning, and, well you understand!

 

With Love

I started with the spotted Gorgeous Grunge stamp, using the stamping off technique so that the Soft Sky ink would be very subtle on the Whisper White art panel.  Then, I used the solid heart from the Sealed With Love stamp set and randomly stamped a few full strength and a few that had been stamped off all around the panel.  The sentiment was stamped full strength in Soft Sky ink.  

With Love

Next, I stamped the Love Note in Real Red ink and cut it out with the coordinating Love Notes Framelits Dies. Then I chose two panels from the Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack for the envelopes and die cut them, too.  One was sealed with liquid glue and the other left open for the Love Note to peek out.  

With Love

The open heart was die cut with one of the Love Notes Dies in Real Red and for the arrow, I used Gold Foil.  The wooden heart is one of the Sending Love Embellishments. 

With Love

The inside sentiment is also from Sealed With Love, and it and the lips were stamped in Real Red ink.  

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, so time to get the Sealed With Love Bundle and get busy stamping!  When you order the bundle and the DSP, you will have the chance to order one FREE Sale-A-Bration item!!  

Here are a couple of shots of the ladies working on their cards

Stampin’ Up! Lift Me Up Thank You

I used the Stampin’ Up Lift Me Up Bundle and the All Things Thanks stamp set to create a thank you card today, thus the Lift Me Up Thank You title! 

 

Lift Me Up thank you

 

I started by adhering a panel of the Carried Away DSP (free during Sale-A-Bration) to my Whisper White card stock base.  Next, I stamped a large Night of Navy hot air balloon, and a small Watermelon Wonder and a small Peekaboo Peach balloon onto Whisper White Thick cardstock.  Then I cut them out with the coordinating dies.  

 

Lift Me Up Thank You

I stamped the large cloud images from Lift Me Up in Night of Navy, onto a  panel of Whisper White, and the sentiment in Peekaboo Peach.  I cut another panel of Peekaboo Peach and attached it to my art panel with liquid glue.  

 

Lift Me Up Thank You

 

Then, I cut a length of the Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon, attached it to the front with Tear & Tape and adhered the art panel over it with dimensionals.  The balloons were added last with dimensionals, also.  

Lift Me Up Thank You

I had some fun on the inside stamping those hot air balloons-I really love this set.  The sentiment is from All Things Thanks and is stamped in Peekaboo Peach.  I matted the art panel with Mint Macaron.

Quick and easy Lift Me Up Thank You card!

Card stock cuts are at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! So In Love Anniversary Card for FMS 270

Today, I am sharing an anniversary card using the So In Love Bundle from the  2017 Occasions catalog.  The Falling in Love Suite is found on pages 50-52, and there are so many beautiful items to choose from!  

 

So in Love

 

The inspiration for my sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches FMS #270

MS 270 Anniversary

First, I stamped the happy anniversary sentiment from So In Love in Soft Suede onto a panel of Very Vanilla. Then, I attached that panel onto my Soft Suede card stock base.  

Anniversary

 

Next, I used the large lacy So Detailed Thinlet Die to cut a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  I adhered the cut out to a panel of the Falling In Love DSP with liquid glue and wrapped a length of Very Vanilla Satin ribbon around it, securing it in a few spots with Tear & Tape adhesive.  Once the bow was tied I added a couple of Glue Dots to make sure it wasn’t going to slip around.  

Anniversary

I used a strand of Silver Thread to tie the Falling In Love Embellishment to the existing bow and popped that panel onto the front with dimensionals.  

Anniversary

I inked up the flower image from So In Love in Soft Suede ink and stamped off twice before actually stamSoping the flower on the lower left corner.  I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the sentiment and even stamped it twice in Soft Suede so that it would be bold on the Very Vanilla panel.  

I made an anniversary card, but you could also make a Valentine, a congratulations or a wedding card with this set. Mix and match it and even make a beautiful birthday card–the sky is the limit with this set!
