Sweet Little Boxes Valentine

Sweet Little Boxes Valentine

I just love treat packages! From boxes to bags and more! So, I purchased many packages of Stampin’ Up!’s Sweet Little Boxes available in the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog. You receive 10 boxes for $10.

They are about the same size as the little boxes filled with conversation hearts. And you can decorate them any way you want. Fill them with anything you want — from chocolate to gift cards.

Today, I share four of the boxes I’ve decorated. Be sure to watch the video at the end of this post.

My first box draws on my love of cactus as a rather new Arizona resident. Stampin’ Up!’s new Cactus Cuties Bundle makes this really fun.

I also used the:

  • sentiment from the Sweet Talk stamp set;
  • heart from the Sweet Hearts Dies;
  • patterned paper from the Daffodil Afternoon 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper (available free with a minimum $50 purchase before tax and shipping during SaleABration). This piece measures 7 inches by 3 1/4 inches.

The above box uses the same supplies except for the Designer Series Paper. This comes from the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper, available in Stampin’ Up!’s Annual Catalog as a host selection.

Sweet Talk Suite Treat

The box above uses elements from the Sweet Talk Suite as well as the Highland Heather 1/2″ Grosgrain and the Supple Shimmer 12 x 12 Specialty Paper.

For the box above, I die cut a circle with Stampin’ Up!’s Layering Circles Dies and added a Window Sheet before I put the box together.

Blessings of Home Card Sample

Blessings of Home Card Sample

Last week, Stampin’ Up! debuted two brand-new catalogs: the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog and SaleABration. Both offer fun, new, and exciting products.

As a demonstrator, I was able to order many of the components of the Heart & Home Suite. It’s a robust suite that includes two stamp sets, two coordinating die cut sets, the Hive 3D Embossing Folder, Denim Ribbon, Classic Matte Dots, Heart & Home Doilies, memories and more cards and envelopes, and the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper (DSP).

Blessings of Home Card Sample

The card above uses the Blessings of Home stamp set in conjunction with the Heart & Home Designer 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper. The die cuts comes from the Stitched So Sweetly Die Cuts.

Blessings of Home Stamp Set

I’ve seen a lot of cards on Pinterest and Facebook that feature this “block” design for Designer Series Paper. It allows you to showcase three different designs all on one card. The large piece on the left measures 5 1/16 inch x 1 7/8 inch. The two squares on the right each measure 1 7/8 inch by 2 1/2 inches I can see using this design for all of the packages of awesome DSP Stampin’ Up! offers.

I used the coordinating colors of Pale Papaya, Fresh Freesia, and Garden Green.

Stayed tuned for Saturday’s blog post where I share a host of other card samples using this same suite!

Evergreen Elegance #simplestamping

Evergreen Elegance #simplestamping

Each month, Stampin’ Up! issues a #simplestamping challenge to its demonstrators worldwide. We go back to the basics and focus on creating a card with just rubber stamps, ink, and paper. This month, we add an extra element: ribbon.

Although I need a few more Christmas cards, I also use a lot of thank you cards this time of year. I’ve received a number of heartfelt gifts, and I want the givers to understand how much I appreciate them thinking of me. 

Evergreen Elegance #simplestamping

I turned to #simplestamping to help me create s stack of cards I can have handy and get in the mail right away. This card uses:

This layout features three strips of Designer Series Paper each measuring 5 1/4 inches by 1 4/ inches. I spaced them equal distance apart on the Soft Succulent card base. Imagine creating a host of different backgrounds with Stampin’ Up!’s huge array of patterned papers.

The white stamped piece measures 2 inches by 3 1/2 inches, and the Evening Evergreen layer measures 2 1/4 inches by 3 1/2 inches. I topped it off with a bow created with the Soft Succulent 3/8 inch Open Weave Ribbon.

As I’ve said before, I’m a clean and simple stamper and this basic layout and design really appeals to me. It will be easy to create a stack in a short time. 

 

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you’ve enjoyed my #simplestamping project.
