Mini Valentine’s Day Cards

Hi everyone! I am back with another 10 minutes or less project (that is per card) to share with you. If you remember yesterday I made planner paper clips with one of Eileen Hull’s diecuts. You can find that blog post HERE. Well, today I am using the Needle Book Scoreboard Diecut to make little Valentine’s Day cards. I started by cutting from Pink and Ivory Dot Reverse and Navy and Kraft Mini Dot Reverse Cardstocks.

I folded all three of the pieces in half. The first two cards I used scraps from the 7 Gypsies Maritime 6″x6″ pad. The fish and the ship I had fussy cut out before hand and was in with my stash of punch outs and diecuts that I keep handy. The fish is cut from the General Store on Ivory Cardstock. I used one of the banner diecuts from the Banners and Pennants Diecuts to make a little hat for the fish and placed a little punched out heart under its fin. The fish wasn’t complete until I added a googlie eye to it. 🙂

The ship cut out is from Bon Voyage on Ivory Cardstock and I tore a piece of cardstock and adhered over the bottom of the ship to create the look of water and  I adhered a punched out a heart to the front along with a sentiment. I forgot to add that all the sentiments are printed from the computer.

The basket of flowers is a printable that I had cut out and didn’t use. I added it to the front of the card along with a scrap of Tan and Ivory French Script Cardstock and felt heart ribbon. I also added sequins, Dew Drops and a bit of lace and twine.

I plan on added these cards to packages that will be going out in the mail soon and think each card only took 10 minutes to create.

Snowman Treat Tin

Hi everyone! I have another quick project I created out of an empty little 4 oz. tin of peppers. It’s the prefect size to add some sweet treats for a friend or family member. I used cardstock  and embellishments from the Winter Collection (Russia) from the Robin’s Nest. 

I used the Snowflake and Snowman die cuts from Cuttlebug and the Medallion diecut from Sizzix. Along with snowflake stickers from Ecstasy Crafts and Dew Drops and there you have it…done!!!

Another idea use a bigger tin can, decorate and use it in place of a stocking. 🙂 

If you have any question let me know. Thanks for stopping by, hope your Thursday is wonderful and enjoy creating!!!! 

Bats and Cats Treat Bags

Hi everyone! I’m back to share two more treat/goodies sack I created. I used some of the Halloween (Transylvania) Cardstock collection that is 20% off over at the Robin’s Nest to make these super adorable sacks.

I glimmered misted both of the doilies and while I let them dry I cut out the rosette and adhered that together. Then all I had to do was add a bit of Purple Glitter Crackle Cardstock, trim, bling, buttons and stickers. Easy peasy!!! 🙂

This little sack I finally used a die I have had forever from Cuttlebug that has a bunch of mini Halloween characters such as skull, pumpkins, ghost, spider, bat, etc. The googlie eyes are a perfect addiction to the little bats. The other Cuttlebug die has a Happy Halloween Embossing Folder that goes with it. I inked around the edges and inked a little of the “Happy Halloween” and then used stickles around the outer edge of the die. I embossed just the pumpkin in Orange Glitter Crackle Cardstock which I fussie cut out and added stickles around the edges. The last thing I added was sequins, bling and dew drops.

Both treat/goodie sacks were very easy and really didn’t take a lot of time to make.

Supplies Used:

Chevron Bags
Want 2 Scrap Say it With Bling
3mm Googlie Eyes
Martha Stewart’s Stem Green Chalk Ink
Stickles: Crystal and Patina
Tattered Angels Peach Delight Glimmer Mist
Ric Rac
Cuttlebug Halloween Die and Embossing Folder
