Country Floral Lane Valentine’s Card

You’ll be ready for Valentine’s Day with this Country Floral Lane card. The beautiful Country Floral Lane Designer Series Paper provides the perfect background for the hearts and sentiment. And those hearts! Well, they are also from the Country Floral Lane Designer Series Paper. Just use the coordinating Country Bouquet Punch to cut the hearts and leaves at the same time. It can’t get much simpler. The products used for the card are part of the beautiful Country Floral Lane Suite in the Stampin’ Up! January-April 2023 Mini Catalog. The Country Bouquet stamp set provides the Happy Valentine’s greeting along with other sentiments and special greetings to use year round. Grab these items soon so you can be prepared for Valentine’s Day next month! To make it even easier, I included a list of the project materials and a short assembly video in this post.

Christmas Banner Holiday Card

Today’s project features a Christmas Banner holiday card that is easy for mass production.  There’s little stamping and the use of designer series paper layered onto cardstock completes the look.  While I am using non-traditional colors, it’s easy to swap out the colors and use a designer series paper with a traditional holiday color scheme.  Watch the video below to see how simple it is to make the Christmas Banner card.  NOTE: The Christmas Banner Bundle is retiring soon!  Order it soon – then you will have it available to use on next year’s holiday cards!

Bewitching Stars Treat Bags

It’s time to prepare for Halloween!  Today’s project features Bewitching Stars Treat Bags.  The “bewitching” in the title comes from using the Bewitching Bundle in the Stampin’ Up! July-December 2022 Mini Catalog. The bundle contains the Bewitching Stamp Set and the Witch Hat Builder Punch.  In the same catalog, you’ll find the Stars Treat Bags.  The treat bags are sturdy and will make the perfect table favor to stand at each place setting.  And for the sentiment, you’ll find the “Boo!” stamp in the Cottage Wreaths Stamp Set (or select your favorite Halloween sentiment to use!)  

 

Bewitching Stars Treat Bags Project Details:
  • Stamp the witch hat and the shoes with legs images onto Basic White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  TIP: the Stamparatus is the perfect tool to use when stamping the images.
  • If you selected the dotted witch hat as above, select your desired Stampin’ Blends colors to color the dots.  Also, color the leggings and buckle on the shoes.  Colors used on my project were: Parakeet Party, Tahitian Tide, Real Red and Daffodil Delight. 
  • Use the coordinating Witches Hat Builder Punch to cut the hat shape.  
  • Fussy cut the shoes with legs image (or if you own a Scan & Cut or other electronic scan/die cutting machine, the image can be easily cut. NOTE: use a pencil to connect the two legs together so they cut in one piece – erase after cutting)
  • Add the witch hat to the legs then attach to the lower right front edge of the Stars Treat Bag using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • If desired, stamp Boo! onto Basic White cardstock using Parakeet Party.  If you have the retired circle punches, 3/4″ & 1″, use them to cut the sentiment and a piece of black cardstock to layer the sentiment. Otherwise, use the smallest two Stylish Shapes circle dies. 
  • Loop into a bow shape the Parakeet 1/8″ Metallic Woven Ribbon and attach to the treat bag using Stampin’ Seal+.  Next, add the layered sentiment over the bow using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  

Next is the fun part – fill the bag with treats!!!
