A Valentine gift from the Heart

After weeks of anticipation, it’s finally here–Sale-A-Bration is now in full swing! During Sale-A-Bration 2012, you can earn free products in three different ways.

Stampin' Up! Sale-a-brationStampin' Up! Sale-a-brationStampin' Up! 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.

No calorie birthday cake

The slice of cake I made for you today has no calories.  It’s a fun box you can decorate as a party favor or to fill with goodies or a gift card.  The box is made from a die I’ve had for a while and it was time to use it.  One of the great things about the Big Shot is you can use different kinds of dies from different manufacturers.  I die cut the cake slice then embossed with the Finial Press Folder.  I decorated the slice with doilies punched from the new Doily Triple Layer Punch, pearls and ribbon.  I served up my cake slice on a circle scallop plate I embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots folder.  The candle is made with Very Vanilla card stock then decorated with a strip of Melon Mambo.  I freehand the flame using Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight card stock.  Making this cake slice was a lot of fun.
