Love Blossoms # 2 Stampin Up Challenge Series

Ready for another project?
Everyone likes to give candy hearts for Valentine's Day so I decided to make a treat box to fill.

I used the Love Blossoms suite again and some of the 2015-2017 Designers Series 138432 paper in Watermelon Wonder.  I really like the script paper.
It was really simple to make here it is

I used the Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit 140551 for the foil heart and the wood veneer heart.  I punched a small heart from the Blushing Bride glimmer paper 140550 using the Itty Bitty Accents Punch set 133787.  The sentiment and banner were stamped using the the Bloomin' Love Stamp Set 140643 and Watermelon Wonder ink 138323.

The dimensions on the box are DSP cut 5 1/2" x 8 1/2".  Score in portrait or vertical position @ 1" on both sides. Turn to landscape or horizontal position and score @ 1" and 3 3/4" on both sides.
Using a bone folder crease on all fold lines.  Trim at an angel the tabs on each side. To put the box together put adhesvie on each tab and then attach the sides to from the box. 
I got this box from Chick n Scratch she also has a video which is easy to follow.

Check back soon for a new project and if you missed my first post just scroll down for my Stampon' Up Challenge.

My Stampin Up Challenge

Hello! Everyone
 I know its been a while since my last post,  I'm back now and will be posting more frequently,
One reason, it's time for the new 2016 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration.  I've purchased so many things and recieved a lot of FREE stuff. I want to share some of the new products with you.

The Love Blossoms suite on pages 16 & 17 is perfect for Valentines' Day.  I love the soft color palate of pinks, it feels very vintage to me.  The Designers Series papers are gorgeous and the embellishment pack adds to the vintage feel.

The Going Places Suite on pages 38 & 39 has a masculine feel to it.  It would be great for Father's Day and masculine Birthday cards.

Of course who doesn't have Birthdays to celebrate all year long. With the It's My Party suite on pages 4 & 5 I'll be able to make one of a kind cards for everyone on my Birthday list.  The Designers Series Paper Stack will keep me well stocked with the right paper.  There are 12 double-sided deigns to choose from;

So this is my challenge.  Ive decided to make a project using everything I've gotten from the Ocassions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs.  The stamp sets, the ribbon, the paper, the die cuts or thinlits, the punches and embellishments,

Since Valentines Day is just around the corner I thought I would start with the Love Blossoms suite.  Here is my first card.

I kept this simple, paper, a punch and stamps.  I used the following items from the Love Blossoms suite

145549 Love Blossoms Cardstock Pack
I used Crumb Cake for my A2 card base 

140548 Love Blossoms Designers Series 6 x 6 Paper Stack
My first layer is cut 5 1/4" x 4" using a Crumb Cake patterned paper.
I used six different designs in Blushing Bride to punch out hearts using the 
133786 Sweet Heart Punch 

140643 Bloomin' Love Stamp Set
I stamped the banner and BE MINE using Crumb Cake ink pad 126975.  For dimension I added the hearts and the banner with Stampin dimensionals 104430.

140551 Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit
For some bling I used the enamel glitter dots and clear Wink Of Stella 141897 offered for the first time in the Ocassions catalog.  We also have it in gold 141898.

You can easily CASE this card purchasing these items and quess what?  Yep you will have enough to select a FREE item from the Sale-A- Bration catalog.
