Can you imagine gluing down all those heart shapes on the front of this card?  When you have the Mini-Treat Bag Thinlits Die set you don’t have to worry about getting all those hearts even because there is a die that cuts them out from the Whisper White paper and then you glue the patterned paper behind the card front. 

You Plus Me Handmade greeting card

Of course this card could be used for a Valentine’s Day card, but it could also be used for an anniversary card. The images are from the You Plus Me set which is such a fun set from the Occasions catalog available right now.

You Plus Me Handmade Greeting Card

I love creating rows with these dies and there are so many options for you! You could do rows of stars for a graduation or birthday card or a rows of circles in most any kind of card. All you have to do is back the cut out shapes with patterned paper and you have fun colors peeking through. Of course you can cut out the rows of shapes from the Mini Treat bags before you assemble them and have windows in your bag.

Do you have or use the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set?  You can use this set to add depth and detail to your cards with the great images included in this set. The first image is without the Gorgeous Grunge set and with the second one I added a layer of vellum stamped with the Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey splatters.

Butterfly Basics Handmade Birthday Card

This first card is created with the Butterfly Basics bundle and the Irresistibly Yours paper. A great benefit of the Irresistibly Yours paper is with a little bit is ink and a sponge dauber you can have patterned paper in any color you desire. The package comes with 6 different patterns embossed on to white card stock so when you sponge on the ink the embossed areas will resist the ink and rub right off. The Irresistibly yours paper is one of the FREE Sale-a-Bration choices.

Handmade Butterfly Basics Handmade Card

When you want to step up a card or add a little bit of depth you can use the splatters from the Gorgeous Grunge set. In order to mute the striped paper the splatters were stamped on to a piece of vellum and affixed as an overlay. That’s it, the only difference between the two cards! Except for the “honeycomb” image stamped in Perfect Plum rather than Hello Honey.  You can find all the supplies listed down below. Feel free to leave a comment below and let me know what you think.

The Hey, Valentine stamp set from the Occasions catalog is just adorable and you can make the such cute Valentine’s Day cards or treats for kids or classmates. I made these three little Valentine’s Day Treat covers for suckers to give out this year.

Handmade Classroom Valentines with Candy

This first sucker is covered with 2 hearts cut from the Stacked With Love paper with a Heart Framelits Dies. The 2 hearts are attached with small staples from the Handheld Stapler. The little label is colored and glued to the paper hearts. Super easy and cute.

Bird-sucker

 Wouldn’t it be fun to give this darling little fox? I colored him with Blendabilities and punch out the tag shape with the Tag Punch. Again the focal image is attached to a piece of the Stacked With Love paper and wrapped around a sucker.

And then we have the darling pirate. He is so cute and fun to color. I used the Deco Label Framelits to make a cover for this sucker. I just cut him out with an Oval Framelit and attached him to the front.

Are they flowers or clouds? They are flowers, but after I colored the paper and finished the card I thought it had a cloud look. I used the new Soft Sky Blendabilities Markers to color the banner made from the Sale-A-Bration paper called Irresistibly Yours. To create the ombre look I started with the darkest color at the top, medium Soft Sky in the middle, and the lightest color at the bottom.  See how that makes the flowers pop out on the paper.

Crazy About You Handmade Card

 It is so great to be able to cut out paper words with the Hello You Thinlits and then having the words from the Crazy About You Stamp Set to create fun sentiments.  When you purchase the two products together you save 15% with the bundle price. See the Crazy About You set here.  You can order the set as a photopolymer, wood, or clear mount set.

Crazy About You Handmade Card

I used the Word Bubbles Framelits Dies to cut out the Garden Green speech bubble for the “Just Sayin’” to set it off. I did have to adjust the size of the bubble a bit so I cut it out once and then repositioned it and cut again. The words are stamped on to Whisper White card stock and punched out with the Word Window Punch. You can find all of the supplies I used below.
