Make It Monday - Peaceful Poppies Elements

Hello there! I've got a fabulously fun quick and simple card for you today!

I love when there's a product out there that does most of the work for you.  The Peaceful Poppies Elements are a prime example of that type of product.

I started out with a standard Pool Party Cardstock base (8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored at 4 1/4")

I used the paint spatter stamp from Painted Poppies to create that fantastic black textured background. It's really pretty awesome!

Then, I arranged pieces from the Peaceful Poppies Elements to create that beautiful floral element.

Well, Just check out the video to see how quick and easy it was to put together! :-) You'll love it!

I am in love with the sentiments from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set. They're fantastic (and my new favorite!).  I used that set for each of the two sentiments I used on these cards.

I admit, I do love this simple layout and design. :-)

I hope you enjoyed today's project friends! I had so much fun creating it for you! :-D

Until Next Time,
Happy Crafting!

Sweets for your Sweet! Valentine Treat Box / Card Combo

Happy Valentine's Day!

I have a special treat for you today.  It's a chocolate box and Valentine card gift, all in one, and it's SERIOUSLY CUTE!

This adorable little treat box could easily be modified for any occasion or celebration, but it's just perfect for Valentine's Day!

To complete the project as I've created it,

You'll need:

Whisper White Cardstock
Real Red Cardstock
From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper
Heart Doilies
21 inches of 3/8" Real Red Cotton or Satin ribbon
White Polka Dotted Tulle Ribbon
Red Rhinestones
9 Hershey Nuggets

Use the two Templates here to cut and score your box base out of Whisper White Cardstock

You'll also need a piece of Real Red Cardstock cut at 8 3/8" x 3 1/4" for the card itself, and score it at 4 3/16" on the long side.  This makes the card base that you'll attach to the top of your box.

Cut another piece of Whisper White Cardstock at 4 1/16" x 3 1/8".  This will be the inside layer of your card.

Then, cut a piece of that fabulous Designer Series Paper 4" x 3" for the front layer of your card.

Ok, let's put it all together now.  Assemble the box base as you do a standard box, gluing the tabs to the adjacent sides.

Wrap the Real Red Ribbon around the perimeter of the box base.  I tied mine in a standard square knot, but you could tie it into a bow if you like. You'll just need a couple more inches in length for that.

Attach a strip of Tear & Tape to one end of the 10 1/4" long piece of cardstock and wrap it over and around the box base, then seal. You want it to be snug-ish, but not so tight that it can't be slid off.

For the card itself, burnish the 4 3/16" line to have the card folded in half. Use snail to attach the layer of DSP to the front, and the White Cardstock piece to the inside.

I used the Heartfelt stamp set to decorate my card.  The " FROM MY HEART TO YOURS" stamp fits perfectly inside that foil rimmed heart that can be punched out of the DSP.

I love lots of layers, so I used dimensionals to pop up the doily before adding it to the card. Then I popped up the punched foil heart even more and added it on too!

To give the card some nice texture, I added a bow made from White Polka Dotted Tulle ribbon.  I also added a few little Red Rhinestones to the front!

So cute!

Inside the card, I stamped Happy Valentine's Day and a couple little cutesy hearts too.

I used Tear & Tape to also attach the card to the top of the box.  I wanted it to be stuck really well.  So once you've got your card made, go ahead and attach it to the box.

Now you're all done with a really great Valentine's Day gift!  I hope you enjoyed today's project and tutorial!

Until Next Time,
Happy Crafting!

OSAT Blog Hop Sixteen Candles

Hello, Hello!!!  It's time for a Birthday Celebration, today! We can always use inspiration for Birthday Cards, Gifts, Gift Packaging, Tags, etc and today's One Stamp At A Time Blog Hop is here for YOU!

Follow the hop around to find fantastic ideas for the next Birthday on your list!  You're sure to find plenty you love!

My projects use the Bonanza Buddies collection.  These cute little guys aren't just for kiddie birthdays! They can be wonderful for grown-ups too! 

I made this card using that absolutely BRILLIANT tag die in the bundle.  To be honest, the tag sold me on the ENTIRE bundle! It's seriously awesome!  

I used some of the bold and bright Designer Series Paper and I coordinated colors in the cardstock. Isn't Stampin' Up so smart for making that SO EASY for us?! I love it! The little toucan is actually DSP that I used one of the matching dies to cut out (Thanks again Stampin' Up!).  He's so cute!  Of course, I could just as easily stamped and colored him, but I love it when my dies match an image on the DSP. hehe.  

I made the background on the card base, using the party hat pom pom stamp. I thought it looked like little starbursts on its own. :-D What do you think?

Of course, A birthday isn't great with just a card.  You should never show up empty handed. This lovely gift took just a few minutes and matches the card wonderfully.  Plus, Who doesn't love chocolate?! I especially love when I have chocolate whose wrappers match my decoration! WIN WIN!

And, as a testament to how much I am enjoying playing with this collection, I'm sharing a 2nd tag sample with you. I hope you don't mind! The little Koala is so cute and I LOVE the sentiment!

I think it's so neat how the tags can be so different and still look so fantastic together! With the Koala tag, I added a couple dimensionals between tag layers to make it lay how I wanted it to, in order to show off the Designer Series Paper.  Of course, I love adding extra layers wherever I can anyways!

Which do you like better? The Brave little Lion or the cuddly little Koala?

Well, That's all for me for today! I hope you've enjoyed my projects.  Please carry on with the hop to see all the wonderful projects awaiting you on the other side of the "NEXT" button here:

Until Next Time,
Happy Crafting!
