Valentine’s Day Fun

Hey everyone did you miss me?  Sorry it’s been so long wasn’t what I had planed but sometimes life gets in the way.  I’ll explain all of that in a post soon but today I wanted to share with you the cute Valentines we made for my kiddos classes.

Orange Monster Valentine

Pink Monster Valentine

I knew from the minute I saw this stamp set in the occassions catalog that I wanted to use it for valentines and my kids happened to pick the perfect treat to go with it.  I loved how they turned out.  It was really easy I used a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of paper and it’s scored in the center at 5″, 5 1/2″ and 6″.  I then folded it into the center to give it some dimension and room for the sucker.  I used a 1/2″ circle punch on the fold to create the whole for the succor.  Hopefully this photo gives you the idea of what I tried to explain.

Monster Valentine Base

I love that Stampin’ Up! gives me the opportunity to spend time with my kids while creating fun and unique valentines for their friends.  I enjoyed teaching them how to use the new watercolor pencils and watching their faces light up when I showed them the magic of blending the colors with the blender pens.  Just a quick note these are going fast they already sold out of the first shipment and had to put them on back order and they expect to sell out of the rest of them quickly so be sure to get your soon.

Here the fun completed project I hope you think they turned out as cute as I did.  Just a note I used the framelites die from the Paisleys set to cut out the center I found it was easiest to attach my white colored monster first then run it through the big shot.  It cut through both layers with no problem and created the perfect whole for our succors.

#imbringingbirthdaysback

Many of you may have seen posts on Facebook recently with the hashtag #‎imbringingbirthdaysback‬ . I’m excited to join in this fun movement and hope you will join it with me.  First for those of you who don’t know the movement: bringing back a card in the mail rather than just a text or greeting on Facebook, while those are great it’s so nice to get a card in the mail.

If you want a hand stamped birthday card from me this year please comment with your Birthday and I’ll add to my list (if your birthday just past add it anyway and I’ll get a belated card to you.)

Next if you want to join in the fun then I have the perfect class for you and well as introducing my first ever STAMP WITH ME class.  This class is perfect for birthday cards and you can do it from the comfort of your own home.

STAMP WITH ME CLASS

It’s My Party -Birthday Card Class

This is a one sheet wonder class where you will use the amazing papers in the the “It’s my party Designer Series Paper Stack.” You’ll use one sheet to make these 12 amazing cards.  (Note picture shows 2 different papers so you can see that the design works with both the light and dark colors in the paper stack.)  You’ll have enough paper to create 8 sets and still have more designer paper left

As a bonus you will also get the materials to make this darling box.  If you have January’s Paper Pumpkin it works great to add the months of the year.  We also offer several month sets if you need one or write on them yourself whatever works best for you.

TGIF Challenge

I recently found a fun new group on Facebook that has a great blog.  You can check out their blog here http://tgifchallenges.blogspot.com/.  They are featuring fun challenges that their designers participate in and we can participate in the fun as well.  So I thought this would be a great way to challenge me a little as well.  Here was the first challenge.

I had so much fun with the challenge the I actually created 3 projects.  So I thought I would share all three.  I really do love how well these colors work together.

Heart Card TGIF challenge

I really love how this one turned out.  I liked the card with just the hearts but I really loved it when I added the little extra touches like the buttons with ribbon and the heart bubble.

Here’s a quick list of supplies:

Thanks Card TGIF Challenge

This was the second card I made and probably my favorite.  I just love how it turned out.  So just a note the feathers on this card are included in the carry over items from the Holiday Catalog.  They are not listed in the new catalog so I’m not sure they will continue to carry over.  That means if you didn’t get them already and love them like I do be sure to get them now.

Thanks Card TGI Challenge Close Up

Here’s a little closer look at the feathers and the words.  I really love how it looks.  One quick note on the background.  I stamped off first before stamping my white card-stock so that it would be a bit lighter.

#130499 Clear $13.95

So my last project I thought it would be fun to use these colors to create my own Project Life card for my page.

Project Life Page TGIF Challenge  The one thing about project life is that it’s hard to get a good picture when the pages are in the page protector.  I actually attached the extra elements to the page protector instead of the actual pictures so I couldn’t take the pictures out for the picture.

Project Life card TGIF Challenge

I took out the center card and took a close up picture so you could see how easy it was to make this simple card for this page.  I used one of the grid cards to make it easy for journaling.  I love this stamp set and punch for Project life it just works so well with everything.  Remember this awesome stamp set and punch is on the retired list so be sure to get them before they are gone for good.

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Dies Card

I was so excited to share this card with you and the day after I made the video I found out that Stampin’ Up! was discontinuing the blendabilities line due to inconsistency in manufacturing of the product.  I’m so sad that his product is no longer available as I absolutely love it.  In fact I only had one more color to get.  I truly hope and pray that they will be able to find a manufacture that can produce the quality the Stampin’ Up! desires so we can have these fabulous markers back.

I still wanted to share this card with you as you could still make it using the awesome Butterfly cards however you just wouldn’t have the fun effect that I added on the butterfly.  Just a note you can use our Stampin’ Write markers however you need to make sure they dry really well (they can smear some maybe even after drying) and they are quite as bold.

First here is the card.

Butterfly Die Card

Here is a close up of the butterfly.  I created the fun effect on the butterfly with the Blendabilites.  You can check out all the details in the video below.

Stampin’ Up! Mini Treat Bag Box

Today I want to share with you a project that I’m so excited about.  I absolutely love the new Mini Treat Bag from Stampin’ Up! and I wanted to have a little fun with it.  I’ve heard of others turning it into a box so I decided to give it a try.  It turned out so cute and I used it as my swap during Leadership this last week.  While I was creating all my swaps I decided that I was going to make my first ever Stampin’ With Candice video.  I hope that is will be the first of many.

So first I’m going to share the cute project with you and find a few pictures of putting the project together.  Then I’ll share the video with you and last I’ll share a list of supplies so you can create one yourself.

So I love Valentines and choose that as my team.  The current occasions catalog has so many great Valentines products.

Just a few quick notes on the front of the Valentines box.

  • Be sure to run your front and back pieces through with the embossing folder before you begin to assemble your box
  • The Love is stamped then cut out with the tag die that came with the treat bag.  I just cut the end off.  Afterwards I covered it in Crystal Effects and let it dry completely before attaching to the front.
  • I used a 1/4 of the Tea Lace Paper Doily and scrunched it to fit the love.
  • The Flower like image is stamped in Rose Coral Colorbox ink on the Chalkboard paper and then cut out with the circle framelits.
  • I used the medium Gray Smoky Slate Blendabilites marker to color on the gold sequines to turn them silver.
  • After forming your heart with the simply pressed clay I sprayed it with Vanilla Shimmer smooch and let dry.  Then I used a needle to thread the bakers twine through it and tied a bow.
  • I used the Banner Punch and went through the top to only punch the edge of the Silver Glimmer paper to create the banner.
  • The Silver Glimmer Paper and the Chevron Ribbon are attached to the back of the Chalkboard Circle.  This is glued onto the box with Tombow Multipurpose Glue.
  • I attached the Tea Lace to the love with Tombow and then attached the love to the Chalkboard Circle with dimensionals.  I also used dimensionals to attach the clay heart.

I really hope you enjoyed this project.  Please let me know if you have any questions.  I’d love to hear your comments.  Also please feel free to share with your friends.  I’d love to see your box creations.  Please feel free to share them on my facebook page.
