Mardi Gras Treat Box with Stampin' Up! Circle Celebrations

Mardi-gras-treatHappy Mardi Gras!  We are experiencing some near record low temperatures today as is most of the USA.  With that being said, our electrical power situation is uncertain so this post will be quick as well as the video.  If you have questions about the project, please let me know.  The measurements are listed below the video.

Since many of us are homebound due to icy roads, I wanted to share an easy project that can be used with a little Ghiradelli chocolate square for any occasion. The Mardi Gras colors are used on this project: purple represents justice, green represents faith, and gold represents power. 

Here's the super quick video!

Lisa's Inklings:

{Video} Make A Card For Any Occasion

Art-gallery-any-occasionNeed to make a card for any occasion?  Here's an idea using the Art Gallery Bundle from Stampin' Up!  My plan is to make a stack of these to keep on hand to add the inside sentiment as needed.

This Fine Art Floral Dsp makes such a beautiful background that you hardly need any other elements for this card front.  You can take a look at all the different patterns HERE.

Here's the how-to video tutorial...let's take a look!

Make a Birthday Card with Stampin' Up! Art Gallery

Stampin-up-birthday-card-art-gallery-pool-partyThe Stampin' Up! Art Gallery Bundle [156227] and coordinating designer  and specialty papers make special cards for birthdays and other occasions.

You just may find your self reaching for these supplies over and over again...like me!  I've found that this coordination of products makes the design of cards easy with beautiful results.

If you'd like to create one for someone you know (or, just one to have in your card stash for when you need it), here's the how-to video tutorial.

Lisa's Inklings:

Stampin-up-birthday-card-art-gallery-pool-party-2

Here's a view of the inside of the card. Using the "stamp off" technique (ink the stamp, stamp off on scratch paper then stamp on your card stock), you will be able to write your message over the stamped image.  To make it even more faint, you may "stamp off" twice.

Here are the supplies used on this birthday card...

Stampin-up-heal-your-heart-thank-you-card

Today's cardmaking project and video tutorial features a thank you card made with the Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration 2021 stamp set, Heal Your Heart. Earn it for FREE with a qualifying purchase!

The sentiments in this set are in a beautiful font and there are some that are just right for the inside of your cards.

Isn't a black and white color palette always striking?  The inspiration for this color scheme for this card is from the dsp.  The floral image is also cut from this designer paper.

Here's the video that I recorded one evening.  You'll notice that I was having some adhesive issues and decided not to edit these out of the video.  It was a bit of humor that I thought you would appreciate!  Here it is...

 

Lisa's Inklings:

In the video, you saw how the inside of the card was stamped with a sentiment.  Here is another idea for finishing the inside...

Here's a little bit of glitz and glamour for your cardmaking using the new Gilded leafing Embellishment from Stampin' Up! 

Admittedly, this paper crafter was a bit intimidated by this new product.  After seeing our CEO, Sara Douglass and her mom, board chair and founder Shelli Gardner, use this during our OnStage online for Stampin' Up! demonstrators this fall, I knew that I had to give it a try!
