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.

Hand Stamped Sentiments – From A Card to Something Else – Challenge #39

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is so much fun!  The challenge is to be inspired to create a 3D gift project from a card.  I created a card with the Northern Hearts hostess stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  This stamp set is so versatile.  It’s a Christmas stamp set but can be used for Valentine’s or a birthday.  I love it!  This stamp set can only be earned with a minimum workshop of $150.  Email me to book your workshop so you can earn this stamp set.

With Christmas around the corner I decided to create a Christmas gift set.  I created the card using the bird image in a heart then thought about putting it together with a heart box.  The heart box is perfect for a small gift.  I purchased the heart box from a craft store and painted it with white acrylic paint.  I traced the lid on Cherry Cobbler card stock, cut it out and stamped the bird image in craft Whisper White then adhered it to the top of the lid.  I stamped the image with Cherry Cobbler ink on Whisper White card stock then cut it out banner style.  I also added small half pearls, and used the Eyelet border punch for trimming and the Perfect Polka dots embossing folder to give my project that extra touch.  The sentiment is from the Contempo Christmas stamp set which is perfect.  I hope you’re inspired to participate in this fun challenge.
