Candy Wrapper/Treat Holder

This is such a cute little version of the Crackers Wrapper we did for Christmas using the Envelope Punch Board.  I added some milk chocolate hearts for the recipient of this sweet treat!  The idea and instructions are on Chiaki Haverstick's Stampingpro blog here.  Love her ideas, thanks so much for sharing Chiaki.

I used paper from Fresh Prints DSP Paper Stack (you don't even have to cut it down).  The Envelope Punch Board and Silver 1/8" Ribbon. I added happy Heart day using Real Red Ink and Tags 4 You stamp set with coordinating punch.  I also added a little silver heart punched out of silver Glimmer Paper using the Small Heart Punch.  Thanks Chiaki for making such easy instructions for me to follow!

Perfect Life

I found this on Diane Roberts site, Score at Four and a Quarter and just loved it!  Of course I'm a kitty lover anyway, but who wouldn't love to get this card?

I used the Googlie Eyes instead of punching from the owl punch like Diane did, otherwise pretty much a straight CASE!  Crumb Cake CS, Bakers Twine, Candy Dots.  Ran the kitties through embossing folders and they were created with the Banners Framelit Dies.  The stamp is from the Feel Goods Stamp Set.  I sponged the edges with Early Espresso Ink.

Sweetheart Treat Bags

I used the Sweetheart Treat Bags and created these cute little Valentine Treats.  The idea came from Qbee's Quest.  Brenda Quintana has the cutest stuff and tutorials to go with it!  So awesome.  Thanks Brenda, love your ideas.

The Sweetheart Treat Bags set gives you the bags, Bakers Twine and Banner.  I all had to do is follow her instructions, add a bit of Tombow Multi Glue and make the little decoration.  The Made with Love stamp is from Love You More Stamp Set.  Layered with Red Glimmer Paper, punched with circle punches and added a Red Glimmer Paper Heart cut with the small heart punch.  I filled the bag with chocolate hearts.

Cindee's Card (I CASED it!)

I CASED Cindee's Card from Just Sponge It, I changed the sentiment because I needed a thank you card, the Thank You is from  the Sassy Salutations Stamp Set, everything else is pretty much the same!  Thanks Cindee, that card is awesome.  As soon as I saw it I knew I had to try and make one!

I used the Hexagon Hive Thinlits Die and the Banners Framelits Dies.  Cindee was right about the Hive Thinlit, use waxed paper and the paper comes out of the die so much easier.  The background is Watercolor Wonder DSP and the base is Pacific Point CS. The little flowers were punched with the Petite Petals Punch  from the same DSP and sponged.  I also sponged around the banner.  Small Pearls for the centers of the flowers and viola....almost as good as Cindee's....tee hee!!!  Thanks again Cindee for sharing, love your site Just Sponge It!

Hugs, Julia

Monster Hugs

Aren't these just the cutest little monster valentines.  Stampin' UP! has them for Girl/Boy.  Here's the one for Girls.

They are so easy to put together, would be fun for any young child.  You get 18 in a package and all you have to do is add the candy and put on the back who it's To: and From: ~ so cute!

Box Card

Here's my first attempt to create one of those "box cards" like they had on Splitcoast Stampers a couple of weeks ago.  Stamping T also created one on her blog if you'd like to check it out here.  She even has a video and instructions how to make it fit a different size envelope!

This is a fun project.  The DSP I used is retired from last year (sorry), it was the More Amore Specialty DSP.  I cut my hearts out using the Heart Framelits and heart punches.  I used the Love You More Stamp Set for the bird and a Hostess Set from the Holiday Catalog called Perfectly You for the Happy XoXo Valentine's to you.  I added some small pearls and colored one with a black Sharpie for the birds' eye.  Also used the Ruffle Stretch Trim in Baked Brown Sugar and Strawberry Slush to highlight the bigger hearts.

Another Valentine CASE

I loved the way Diane Roberts created her Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge here.  This is my version, adding the love from the Expressions Thinlits Dies and cut using a Silver Foil Sheet.

I also added a Basic Rhinestone Jewel to the little heart that's in the circle.  The card base is Real Red CS and the Whisper White layer I ran through the new embossing folder called Decorative Dots which will be available as during Sale-a-Bration starting January 29th.  I followed Diane's instructions for the red strip and white strip with Real Red Taffetta Ribbon and added the little pearls like she did.  I used the Label Love Stamp Set and punched it out with the Artisan Label Punch.  The bitty hearts are punched with the Owl Builder Punch.  The one in the center of the circle was punched with the Small Heart Punch.  Thanks for sharing Diane, love your site (Score at Four and a Quarter)!

Valentine CASE 2014

Here's my first CASE for 2014!  I belong to Linda Heller's, here is the card she demonstrated for us this week, don't you just love it?  You can find her site here. Thanks for all the great ideas Linda and for sharing...

This card has some of the new products Stampin' UP! will have available January 3rd in the Celebrate the everyday Catalog and Sale-A-Bration starting on January 26th!  2014 is going to be an awesome year!

The envelope was made using the Envelope Punch Board and Modern Medley DSP.  The hearts were punched with Small Heart Punch, Full Heart Punch and Owl Builder Punch (for the small hearts).  The Basic Rhinestones give it the extra "sparkle".  The little hello stamp is from a new one available 1/3 called Perfect Pennants, has Framelits to match and will be available in a "bundle"!  The Basic Black on the front of the card was ran through the Big Shot with a new Embossing Folder called Decorative Dots that you can get for "free" during Sale-A-Bration starting 1/26/2014 with a $50. order. much fun!

Happy New Year to all my followers, thanks for your comments and thanks for checking out my blog.  Love and hugs to all ~
