Valentine Treat Box

This is a really simple little treat box that my Sis' Judy shared with me ~ she found it on Splitcoast Stampers link for Create with Cheryl. 

She used the Petal Card Punch to make the ends of the box and each holds 4-6 candy kisses.  All you do for the box is cut 3" x 5" piece of CS and score at 1", 2", 3" & 4".  Fold and glue, wrap the petal cards around each end (be sure to put your kisses or other candy in before you adhere the 2nd end) and secure with glue dots or sticky strip (something that will hold tight!)... I wrapped mine with a clear bag and closed with 1/4" Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon  I added the happy valentine's stamp from Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set on Whisper White CS, punched it out with the Word Window Punch and sponged with Chocolate Chip Ink.

Valentine Girl

Moving on to Valentine's Day!  I found these little clear clothes pins, they have a little magnet on the back. I added a heart (I used the Embosslit Scalloped Heart of Hearts.  Punched it 2x out of Real Red CS, sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip Ink and mounted onto a heart cut from the backing sheet we get in our packages of CS ~ made it all a little thicker.)  I added the little girl with the valentine from the Greeting Card Kids Stamp Set.  I colored her with color pencils and used the blender pen.  Her face and legs I used the Blush Blossom Stampin' Write Pen.  I cut her out and mounted with deminsionals.

Hope you like her?  I've been busy creating Valentine gifts, I'll try and get some of them posted soon.  I'm having so much fun creating, forget to get back to blogging!  Hope everyone is having a healthy winter.  It sure has been cold (yep, even here in the Central Valley of California) ... I'm ready for springtime! 

Keep stampin' ~ hugs to all, :o)

Happy New Year 2011

Here's my first post for 2011!  It's a Birthday Card  for my Step-Grandson, he's going to be 18!  How do those kids get so old so fast??

I used Marina Mist CS for the base, layering onto Crumb Cake CS.  The DSP I used is Blueberry Crisp.  The images were stamped onto Very Vanilla CS.  The Happy Birthday Stamp on front is from the Afterthoughts Stamp Set and the Monogram B is from Broadsheet Alphabet Set.  Inside the cake is from Fun & Fast Notes Stamp Set and the little saying under the cake comes from the Hostess Set Birthday Bakery.  I colored the images with water color pencils and used the blender pen.  I sponged the edges with Marina Mist.  Sure hope he likes it!  (It's up to Papa Bob to put something inside that really makes him smile!)
