XOXO – Team Stamp It Blog Hop

header

Hello there and welcome back for the Stamp It Group’s blog hop ~ Valentine’s Day!  You should have arrived here from the wonderful Siara Acdal’s blog.  If not and I’m your first stop- no worries! Simply use the back/next buttons at the bottom of this post to navigate your way around the hop.

If you have been following me for a while, you will recall that I love making cards with special folds.  So today, I am sharing the Shadow Box Card!  I must admit…I absolutely LOVE my card!  It came out exactly like I thought it would! So…what do you think of my little Love Blossoms Shadow Box Card?

Time for some close ups…did you know that the enamel glitter dots (small size) will fit perfectly in the Candy Dot Brad Bases?  How fun is that!

CARDSTOCK CUTS FOR THIS PROJECT:

  • Cut one Blushing Bride and one Whisper White Cardstock sheet to 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″, score both at 1/2″, 1″, 4-1/2″, and 5″
  • Cut a strip of DSP to 1/2″ x 5-1/2″

It can be decorated anyway you choose with the window on the top layer.  I ran mine through the Big Shot and Happy Heart TIEF.  To finish building the card, add Fast Fuse or Tear & Tape on the end tabs and place both pieces together.  Viola…the folds will make a shadowbox look!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you will continue the rest of the way around our hop! Up next is Lori Mueller! I know she has something great in store for you all today!

Be Mine Candy Holder

This has to be one of my favorite product suites from the Occasion Catalog…Love Blossoms! I love the color pink and the glimmer paper is my favorite!  This little candy treat holder holds one little box of Junior Mints perfectly.  Thank you to Erica Cerwin for this awesome idea!

CARDSTOCK CUTS FOR THIS PROJECT:

  • 2″ x 11″ cardstock, scored at 5″ and 6″
  • 2″ x 6-1/2″ DSP, scored at 2″, 3″, 5″, and 6″

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Use the Scallop Tag Topper Punch and insert/punch each end of the cardstock.
  • Since the DSP I used only measures 6″x6″, I used two strips (2″ x 6″ and 2″ x 2″) and pieced it together to get a longer strip.
  • You will have a small flap and that is where you will add your adhesive.  BEFORE you adhere, add adhesive to the inside 2 long sides (top and bottom edges), not the short sides!
  • Slip the DSP “belly band” over the top of the Scallop Tag and slide down to about 1/4″ from the bottom.
  • Decorate as you wish.
  • Add your candy.
  • Tie the tops together with ribbon.

You’re Sweet Berry Basket

I finally got around to using the new Berry Basket die.  This is the cutest basket for holding a little treat.  In this case, a cello bag filled with Hershey’s Kisses.  I lined the inside of the basket with DSP from the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack.  I think the Tea Lace Paper Doilies and Bow Builder Punch really add the final touch to this project, don’t you think?

Cards, Paper Pumpkin, Valentine's Day

Be My Valentine

Today’s card creation is a CASE from Stampin’ Up! using the January Paper Pumpkin kit, Filled with Love.  I really love these kits as they are worth the money as you get plenty of supplies to make alternative things.  Stampin” Up! has a Paper Pumpkin Pinterest page and they do create some pretty awesome alternative ways to use the kits.

017

I even stamped the inside of the card.  I am lovin’ this month’s kit!

Twitterpated

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I thought I’d better get a move on and create some love themed items.  I used the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack and stuck with a black/red/white theme on this love filled card!

014

Here is a closer look of the layered punches and framelit.  Of course, it needed a little bling too!

015

And to finish it off, a stamped piece on the inside. Don’t you love those little hearts?

Love Is Kindness

My favorite flowers are tulips, so when I saw this stamp set in the Occasions Catalog, it quickly went onto my wish list.  If you look on page 32 of the Occasion Catalog, I got the idea of wrapping the tulips in newspaper.  Genius, wouldn’t you say?

010

Here is the close up of the newspaper wrapped tulips!  I love this small effect, don’t you?

Spiral Flower Wreath

I saw this idea at an event following the Leadership conference last month and fell in love with it.  I added the white backing piece that helps support your package of DSP for a little extra strength.
