Be My Valentine Heart Pouch

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is an inspirational challenge.  See what project is inspired by the photo below.  All sorts of heart projects popped in my head.  Here’s what I created.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I used the largest hearts framelit and cut two in Whisper White.  I stamped one of them with the distressed polka dot background.  For the front side of the pouch I wrapped Cherry Cobbler  twine.  The inner box is  triangular.  Click here for directions on how to make triangular box.  I hope this photo inspires you to join us at HSS.

Mixed bunch party favor box

Due to some technical difficulties I was not able to post last week when I got home from convention.  But her I am.  It’s been a busy week trying to get caught up.  This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a challenge for party favor boxes.  I had not used the Fancy Favor box in awhile so with summer in full swing here’s a favor for any summer party.

The box is die cut from Cherry Cobbler, the flower image is from the Mixed Bunch set and is stamped on Whisper White with Daffodil Yellow ink then die cut with the Blossom punch.  The center image is also from the Mixed Bunch set and is stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink.  For added sparkle I used Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details for the center.  The handle was die cut with the Oval Punch then tied with Daffodil Seam binding ribbon.  So simple but this favor would look great on a white plate filled with chocolates.

Stampin’ Up! Petal Cone Strawberry box and tag

Juicy red strawberries were my inspiration for this week’s fruit challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  I love shopping the produce section.  Vibrant colors and fruit displayed to show it’s freshness.  Strawberries are in abundance at my grocery store.  The clear boxes filled with juicy strawberries got me to thinking I could make a strawberry out of the Petal Cone die and to make it more decadent I thought chocolate dipped!  Here’s my creation complete with tag.  See below to download the tutorial for how to make this gift set.

Sale-a-brationTo celebrate  Sale-a-bration I’ve been creating projects with some of the products in the Sale-a-bration catalog.  This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments the challenge is gift items.  With Valentine’s just around the corner I made this heart box using the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper which you can earn with a $50 purchase.

I used the Heart Framelits to create the box and I embellished it it with quill roses and butterflies die cut from the Beautiful Wi Sizzlit.  To make this box I adapted the tutorial from SCS.  I love the colors in the Everyday Enchantment DngsSP – Poppy Parade, Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Lucky Limeade, Very Vanilla and Soft Suede.  These colors are so pretty together.

I added some extra sparkle to the roses with Dazzling Details and embellished with basic pearls.  The sentiment and the heart on the sentiment are embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder. To make this a sweet gift I filled the box with Hershey’s kisses.

Here comes the bride!

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we invite you to participate in our wedding theme challenge.  Create an invitation, a place card, a card, thank you cards, favor or table decoration.  My wedding creations are a Vellum petal favor box, Vellum flower decoration, place card and table number card.  The petal favor box is from a template I created and I’m selling it for $1.95.  Go to my Tutorial page to purchase.  The flower was created using the Fun Flowers Bigz L Die.  See below more details.  The place card and table number card were printed using My Digital Studio.

For the table card I printed on Vellum the the table number and flourish from My Digital Studio then attached it to the silver card stock by punching two holes at the top of the Vellum and silver card stock and tying with ribbon.  For a simple embellishment I punched the corner of the silver card stock with the corner Scallop Trim punch.

I love the Strength and Hope rubber and digital stamp set.  It’s so versatile.  The flourish image was perfect for these wedding projects.

I hope you’re inspired to create a project for this challenge.

Happy Birthday Cake Slice Box

Yesterday was my hubby’s birthday and I made him a cake slice box.  I put photos of  me and our fur babies inside the box wishing him a happy birthday.  The challenge was in trying to decorate the box in a masculine way.  I was inspired by The Paper Players Color Challenge – Cherry Cobbler, Not Quite Navy and Early Espresso.  These colors are so rich together and masculine.  I am also submitting my cake slice to Piece ‘O Cake Paper Craft Planet 3D challenge.

I made my cake box from Early Espresso  card stock then covered with DSP printed from My Digital Studio – Cherry Cobbler polka dot and Not Quite Navy Villa DSP.   I trimmed a 1-1/4″ strip of Early Espresso with the Eyelet Border punch and adhered to the lid.  I also used the retired Take a Spin stamp set , Striped Early Espresso ribbon and Birthday Banner to decorate the top.  I couldn’t resist and added clear rhinestones to the banner and the sides of the box.  I also used an Antique brad for the back.

I also used My Digital Studio to print the photos and then used the 2-3/8 inch circle punch.  I attached the photos with mini glue dots to 1/4″ Very Vanilla grosgrain ribbon.  I adhered each end with mini glue dots.
