Each time I offer an in-person class or event, I love to gift the participants with a treat package. For March, I decided to use Stampin’ Up!’s 3 1/8″ x 3 1/8″ Acetate Boxes to create an Easter treat. Find these boxes in Stampin’ Up!’s 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. Each package contains 10 clear boxes. Note: These boxes are being discontinued and are available while supplies last. Get them now for $4.80. Shop my online store to see all of the other items included on the Last-Chance Sales.
I have a special offer for you: Purchase $35 of any product (before tax and shipping) from my online store and use the Host Code: TX23EFVK. I’ll send you a free kit to create this treat project at home. You’ll need a little adhesive, a Black Marker and a Chalk Marker and some shredded paper. Colors of ribbon, card stock, and shimmer paper may vary. Offer ends April 10, 2022.
The other products I used to create this cute packaging includes:
Heart Punch Pack
Double Oval Punch
Layering Circles Dies
Gingham Embossing Folder
Supple Shimmer 12 x 12 Specialty Paper
Miscellaneous Stampin’ Up! retired punches.
Create the rabbit, assemble the box, fill with chocolate and shredded paper and you have great Easter basket contents. I also love to give treats to the ladies at the gym and in my book club and bunco group during special holidays.
You can also use the punch art rabbit as a focal point on a greeting card.

Timeless Tulips Easter Card
For me, after growing up in North Dakota and Minnesota, the tulips poking out of the ground signaled the beginning of spring. (I love tulips, but the hot Arizona weather doesn’t support these beautiful flowers.)
Please note: The current edition of Stampin’ Up!’s Annual Catalog retires May 2, 2022. To make room for new products, some current items retire. This includes the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set, on sale for $14.40. The Tulip Builder Punch carries over into the new catalog. Be sure to click this link to see which products are retiring and which are offered at a discount.
This card also uses:
Smoky Slate and Magenta Madness color scheme, with Garden Green accents. (Magenta Madness is a 2020-2022 In Color. It and its coordinating products retire soon.)
Magenta Madness In Color 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper Assortments
Stitched Rectangle Dies

Call me late to the party, but I just made my first slimline card. I know these cards came to the forefront about this time last year, and I didn’t get on board.
However, I was asked to create a good-bye and good luck card for our coach leaving Fit Body Boot Camp. I needed a card that had ample space for everyone to write a message.
So, after I created one and brought it to the gym, I found my Slim Sayings stamp set and coordinating Slimline Card Dies, Find them on page 52 of Stampin’ Up!’s January-June 2022 Mini Catalog. Purchase the stamp set and dies as a bundle and save 10 percent.
The above card uses products from Stamin’ Up!’s Waves of the Ocean Suite Collection. See this post for more card samples using these products.
Slimline cards offer a palette where you can include more images on the front, and it’s a change of pace from our regular card size. And, these cards can be mailed in a business-size envelope with no extra postage required. Stampin’ Up! even sells Slimline Envelopes. Receive 15 envelopes in three colors for $10.
Slimline Card Samples
This slimline card uses Stampin’ Up!’s Hats Off stamp set, Hat Builder Dies, and the Hey Sports Fan Designer Series Paper.
To make a slimline card, cut a piece of card stock at 8 1/2 inches x 7 inches. Score at 3 1/2 inches. Now you’re ready to add layers, if you like, and stamp and embellish.
Here’s a replay of a Facebook Live where I created the card featured at the top.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today. I hope you are inspired. Please let me know if I can help you in any way.
