Valentine's Day Decorations

A customer of mine asked me to create some Valentine's Day Kleenex boxes for her.  First, I was not sure how to cover them since 12 x 12 paper would not be quite big enough.  Then I decided to try some of the awesome kraft wrapping paper Stampin' Up! had during the holidays.  

It seemed to work perfectly for what I had planned!

I used it on both boxes, but made the decorations slightly different on each one.

On the top, I used the Word label punch to create the hole for the Kleenex to come out.

The stamped images on the box are from the Snuggles and Smooches photopolymer stamp set.

I added some Gold Foil sheets that were embossed with the Decorative Dots folder...

and I had lots of retired red buttons that I made use of!

The die cut hearts are from the Hearts a Flutter framelits set.

Paper Pumpkin Idea

I have used the December Paper Pumpkin stamps for this card, pairing them with some circles cut out with the Circles framelits.  There is some All is Calm designer series paper and some Simply Irresistible specialty paper as well.

I used one of the Crumb Cake blendabilities makers on the Simply Irresistible specialty paper to pop out the flowers.

Best Year Ever Thanks

The designer series paper on this card is once again from the FREE Sale-a-bration pack called Best Year Ever.  I really like the patterns they chose for this collection.

As for the stamping, I used Simply Wonderful for the sentiment and Draw the Line for the dots.

Banner Birthday

I had some leftover pieces from the Baptism banner I shared with you last week and I have made a few cards with them.  This one uses the Big Day (SAB 2015) stamp set for the sentiment and some Painted Petals designer series paper in the background.

You can see I did a little bit of sewing on the card as well, I am still playing around with that just a little bit.

Painted Petals

Today I am sharing two cards again, in the same theme and colors and using the same stamp sets.  The flowers and stem come from Painted Petals and the sentiments from Simply Wonderful (SAB 2015).

The background designer series paper is from the Best Year Ever designer series paper pack (SAB 2015).

Adventure Awaits

When I decided to purchase this stamp set from the Occasions catalog, I intended to use it mostly for scrapbook pages.  I just love the Adventure Bound designer series paper stack and for this card I paired the two together.

When I cut down the designer series paper (it is originally 4 /12" x 6 1/2"), I added one of the pieces I cut to the front of the design I chose to break up the pattern a little bit.
The sentiment is stamped on Kraft paper.

I realized I had not used my Regarding Dahlias stamp set in awhile so I pulled it out one day and played with it a little bit.  The two cards below show a the same image stamped on the same color of card stock with the same ink, but one is colored with blendabilities and one is left without any coloring.

On the top one, I used the Coastal Cabana blendabilities to color in the flower.  It pops it out a little, but since it is stamped on Old Olive card stock, it is more subtle than if it was on a lighter color.

This one is left alone and I just added a layer and some extras to it.  Which do you prefer?
