Three Little Projects

Hi stampers!  It was a quiet day yesterday...we had a little snow and I got up early, got my chores done and was able to stamp several things, three in fact!  The first one is a little Valentine treat holder using the colors from Hand Stamped Sentiments:


Again, like so many SU products, this Little Treat Box die did not get near enough use last Christmas, so I brought it out again, along with an older Papertrey set called Tiny Treat Valentines, to create a special gift for a special little someone:


I diecut the box from Bermuda Bay cardstock, then cut two more panels of Blushing Bride and trimmed them down and adhered them on the front and back.  Little pup was stamped in Memento ink and colored with some blends, then diecut and layered with some Real Red and Blushing Bride circle diecuts.   The sentiment was stamped in Bermuda Bay and diecut with a Stitched So Sweetly die.  I just happened to have this big red glimmer heart laying around on my desk so I threw that on there too and closed it all shut with a pretty satin real Red Ribbon!


My next super-easy card is a Valentine for a special someone!  I have had this gold-printed vellum from SU for years and finally got around to using some!  It uses the sketch from Try Stampin' On Tuesday:


And here's my card:


I diecut five gold foil hearts from the Stitched Be Mine dies and layered them on the vellum, then added a gold foil sentiment diecut from Love You More Than dies.  The vellum was folded over and attached at the back on a Very Vanilla card base.  Here's the inside, using one of my all-time favorite Valentine sets, sadly retired, called Sealed with Love, stamped in Gold Encore ink, also retired:



Finally, a Christmas card that uses the colors from Christmas 24; the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches, and is also for Krafty Chicks, since this is Christmas week!




And since I had just cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, I used the second piece like this:


I dug out some washi tape that I have had forever, stamped some greenery from W+9's Merry & Bright, then added a Gold Glimmer paper "merry" diecut with a Spellbinders Small Die of the Month die, and finally a wee little deer from a Poppystamps die:



Just to add a little more interest to my CAS card, I rounded the edges with the Detailed Trio punch.  Thanks for indulging me and popping in today!  Enjoy it and be blessed!
