Handmade Thinking of You Cards with Peaceful Poppies Elements

Thinking-of-you-cards-swap-3

On Saturday morning’s Facebook Live on Ink and Inspirations with Lisa Brown, we made some “thinking of you” cards with the Peaceful Poppies Elements [151327] from the Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog. 
 
I will be using these cards and a similar design for a swap with my stamp club in SE Texas. Next month is a service project and we will be sharing these cards with an assisted living facility.  These are also so appropriate to send now during this time of social distancing.
 
The Peaceful Poppies Elements pack is a tiny treasure of bits and pieces to add that special touch to your cards. Using these elements paired with the beautiful Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper [151324] will enable you to make some special cards for your family, friends, church families, and others!
 
Here is the video for the card seen above...

Base: Whisper White CS 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 and 3 x 3 to punch sentiment

Last Minute Valentine Treat Pouch

Last-minute-diy-valentine-giftValentine's Day is tomorrow and if you've waited until the last minute to get a treat or gift together?  Grab a piece of 12 x 12 paper and create this pouch created by a simple origami fold!

This makes a nice size "pouch" that you can fill with treats or even a small gift.

Last-minute-valentine-giftI "sliced" some thin strips of Real Red card stock to use as filler and just tucked a gift inside wrapped in designer paper.  You'll see in the video below (the Halloween version) that there is quite a bit of candy tucked inside. 

Here's the video with the basic how-to.  Just look at all those goodies in there!

You can embellish your pouch however you'd like! These are fun and super easy to make!

Try making this project with any of our 12 x 12 Designer Series Papers that you can find in the Online Store HERE!
