So the card I made is CASEd from the new Stampin Up Occasions catalog on page 14. I changed a few things, but it is pretty close. I used the Sealed with Love stamp set and Love Notes Framelits. Don't you just love the Heart cutouts on the edge?? I do not send out many Valentine Cards so I kept it pretty simple. We also will make this card at an upcoming Card Club.
My project using the new Window Box Thinlits Die and Window Shopping Stamp set, along with the Oh So Succulent Stamp set and Succulent Framelits dies. All these iitems are available in the new Stampin Up Occasions Catalog.
Stampin Up has a great video on YouTube showing how to assemble and use the piece of the Window Shopping Framelits. I found it best to watch the video before assembling. It really helps!
I cut 2 pieces of the Window box and then cutout the details. Once I assembled the box I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it. I added Hershey kisses to it and the little tag that comes with the framelits and the stamp is from the Window shopping set.
I saw on Pinterest a few of the boxes as tealight holders and I wanted to see how that would look on my own. It's beautiful. So I then cut out 2 of each size shape from the Succulent Framelits in Blushing Bride, stamp the tips on both sides, use your bone folder to add a curve to the petals and layer. It's really easy. I then added Wink of Stella to the tips of the flowers, as well as, the cutouts on the boxes, it looks so pretty when the candle reflects on the glitter. It's really hard to see in the pictures. But I asure you, it's lovely!
I hope you enjoyed my card and project. Be sure to leave a comment for my Blog Candy. And click the Next Button to visit Lynn Streifert's Blog and continue with the Blog Hop

This past week's card club was all about Love. We made 4 Valentine cards that were inspired by cards I saw on Pinterest. I love the Real Red and Crumb Cake combo. So pretty. And super easy to make with the Timeless Textures stamp set used in the background and the DSP punched out with the Sweetheart punch.
And how about the new Bloomin' Heart Thinlits die. The detail in the Heart is simply stunning. And event though I used the heart for Valentine, it really can be used for so much more!
Remember to check out my website for a calendar of events. So you can attend card club and make amazing cards just like these.
Happy Valentine's Day and Happy Stamping

This month's Blog Hop theme is Lots of Love. I knew exactly what products I wanted to use for the blog. NEW! Of Course! NEW items from Stampin Up's Occasions catalog!! I will be showing you 2 projects and 1 card for the blog hop. It may seem like alot of products were used. But it really isn't. I used the same colors, DSP and stamp set throughout the projects and cards. So if you do not have alot on hand, this is great, because we are just using same products,in different way. What I decided to make is SUPER easy projects that I can make multiples, in a breeze. As a busy mom of 3, I need to accomplish the most, in what appears to be a very short amount of time. I'm all about coordination!!!!
So here we go....I hope you enjoy what I've prepared for you! I look forward to hearing your feedback!!!
This project was really easy and uses a small amount of paper. The stamping/punches and glimmer could be scraps on hand! But whats better, is the project can be easily duplicated, if you needed to make a lot, it will take no time!!! The envelopes are not very deep, so this treat package would be perfect for a regular Hershey bar or another thin candy bar, a gift card, perhaps a note, as well. You could also add a couple pencils or pens for a school gift. I am debating whether or not to make for my elementary school kids Valentine Swaps...hmmm there's plenty of time to decide...Right??
You can see in the second picture below, that once you fold the sides in, there are these little corners that stick out into the middle of the box. That is because the box will open flat. No worries. Just take a few glue dots and stick them to the sides. Wala, they are out of the way. You can fill the box with little treats...maybe a special piece of jewelry!!
