Thanks for dropping by today for this month’s One Stamp At A Time Blog hop this month our theme is Don’t Go Breaking My Heart, right in time for Valentine’s Day. So I have created projects featuring the Painted With Love Suite in the 2018 Occasions Catalog. This suite is very artistic, from the stamp set to the designer series paper, and will allow you to create some wonderful fun products not just for Valentine’s Day but for any occasion you need to show a little love. Here’s a Look at my card today.
My card for this month’s hop is a window card. The center of the card is completely see through, allowing you to see the inside sentiment. The outside of the card is covered with the Painted With Love Specialty Designer Series Paper at the top and bottom of the window. I stamped the hearts on the outside from the Hearts Happiness stamp set using the Baby Wipe Technique.
The baby wipe technique is a fun technique, that allows you to create some beautiful images. I added a few drops of the following ink refills to the center of the baby wipe starting with; Powder Pink, Flirty Flamingo, Calypso Coral, Melon Mambo, and Rich Razzleberry. It was about two or three drops of the light colors and one to two of the darker colors. I will tell you you get a better effect when the baby wipes do not have a pattern on them but it doesn’t bother me it adds to the painterly look of the card. Once this was done I inked the stamp up on the baby wipe and stamped it down on whisper white cardstock. Once dry I cut the hearts out using the Big Shot and the Sweet & Sassy Framelits dies, then I placed them on the card using fast fuse and a stampin’ dimensional on the bottom one on the front.
My 3d project this month is a cute little triangle exploding Ghirardelli treat holder. I used a piece of the Painted with Love Specialty designer series paper to create the impressive but easy treat holder.
Once I had everything ready to go it was time to decorate the treat holder. I used the three small heart stamps form the Sure Do Love You Stamp Set and stamped them in Calypso Coral, Melon Mambo, and Powder Pink. I then used the matching dies from the Lots to Love Box framelits dies and ran them through the Big Shot. Once die cut I added them to the front of the treat holder using mini glue dots.
To finish off the treat holder I secured the treat holder closed with one of our gold binder clips. To decorate the the binder clip I used about six inches of the Calypso Coral Shimmer ribbon from the Sale-a-bration 3/8″ shimmer ribbon pack and tied it in a bow on one of the arms of the binder clip.
This treat holder holds two Ghirardelli squares in the two openings on the inside of the treat holder. Once you have the chocolate inside they will stand freely without falling over as you can see in the inside photo below.
This makes for a great little gift for anyone and is really quick and easy to reproduce. These would make a great little treat for coworkers, classes, or just because. Anyone would love to get either the card of the treat holder this Valentine’s Day.
