Language of Friendship Filter Flowers Tutorial

I love the sentiment in the Language of Friendship stamp set (item 122750/122752) and thought it was perfect sentiment for this card I made recently for my friend’s birthday.

Language of Friendship

Do you like the filter flower on this card? If you follow my blog you’ve heard me mention before that I love our Stampin’ Spritzer (item 126185) and find them rather addictive, so I thought I would try them with our NEW White Creped Filter Paper (item 129393) from the Spring Catalog.

Since I’ve tried making my first filter flower they’ve become rather an obsession of mine; right now I’m finding that I’ve been adding them to everything – lol.

I’m having so much fun making these filter flowers that I wanted you to be able to join in the fun too! So here is my latest video tutorial – Stampin’ Spritzer Filter Flowers. I hope you’ll enjoy it.

By the Tide Tutorial

I fell in love with our Stampin’ Spritzers when they came out last summer. Have you had a chance to use them yet? If not you’ll want to check out this great project today using the By the Tide stamp set (item 129117/129120) from the Spring Catalog that uses our Stampin’ Spritzers.

By the Tide card

Stampin’ Spritzer  (item 126185) are inexpensive and soo much fun to use! And Stampin’ Spritzers just seemed like a perfect way to create a wonderful background for these water images. Watch my video to see how I created this card.

Although this project uses two of the colors that are currently on our Color Refresh Retirement List (River Rock and Not Quite Navy) there is still time to get yours. (Remember that when colors retired they tend to go quickly so don’t wait too long to place your order.)

Pop ‘n Cuts Gift Card Holder

Last week I shared a card that I had created with the Card Base Pop ‘n Cuts Die. Today I am going to share another way to use the Card Base Pop ‘n Cuts Die – this time to make a Pop ‘n Cuts Gift Card Holder.

Pop n Cuts Gift Card Holder

Isn’t this Pop ‘n Cuts Gift Card Holder cute? I love these little pinwheels and so I wanted to use them with the coordinating sentiment stamp set Wishes Your Way. I thought that the little greeting included in this set would be great for a graduate.

And since I’m currently gearing up for my daughters high school graduation I’ve been focusing on ideas for  graduation gifts and cards. Gift card holders are always something I need. How about you? And the Card Base Pop ‘n Cuts Die makes this gift card holder not only cute, but easy too.

Spring Catalog Designer Series Paper Chart

Did you know that our Designer Series Paper now has the colors that are used in the paper printed right on the tag board insert? Well they do. Stampin’ Up! has heard our requests and added this for our convenience.  With this addition to our Designer Series Paper I figured you wouldn’t want the chart anymore. However, I’ve had several requests recently for my 2013 Spring Catalog Designer Series Paper Chart. It was great to hear that this is an important resource for some of you. I know I still use it as one of my organizational items since the chart puts all the information in one place.

So, although this is a little bit late, here it is my 2013 Spring Catalog Designer Series Paper Chart.

Pinwheel Wishes Tutorial

Have you ever wondered what happens at one of my monthly Blue Mountain Stampers’ Meetings? Well I thought I would share with you one of the projects we made during my February TEAM meeting.

Pinwheel Wishes Card

I’ve had several of you ask me if I knew any tricks on how to make these cute little pinwheels using our NEW Pinwheel Sizzlits Die from the Spring Catalog. They are sooo stinking cute, but they are small so they can be a challenge to put together if you don’t know a few tricks.

Since I made about 100 of them for my Leadership swaps in January I had plenty of time to try out different methods of putting them together. Today I thought I’d share with you what method worked best for me so I put together a Tips for Quick & Easy Pinwheels Video Tutorial to show you what I learned.

Want to make one of your own Pinwheel Wishes card? Well you can, just click Here for a FREE PDF TUTORIAL with measurements and directions just for you. I hope you have as much fun making these cute little Pinwheels as I did.

Hearts a Flutter Valentine Treat Boxes

Earlier today I mentioned I would share with you the Valentine Treat Boxes I made for all my Valentines today. I love these cute little boxes they are so quick and easy to make and they can be filled with an assortment of things. Today of course they are filled with chocolate!

Valentine Treat Box group

I found these Russell Stover chocolates at my local drugstore and thought they sounded yummy – as luck would have it they were just the right size too for my Valentine Treat Boxes!

I think it is safe now to share these with you since I don’t think my kids will be looking at my blog today and I’ve already given my husband his. Here are some close up shots of each of the boxes.

I’ve used the Hearts a Flutter stamp (item 129249/129252) from the Spring Catalog set to create the focal point on each of these little boxes. The Hearts a Flutter is such a fun stamp set to use I find myself reaching for it for all kinds of projects. This first box is my husbands and he got his as he headed out the door for work. (Somehow I don’t think the treat will make it all the way to Lawrenceville.)

This second box is for my son, Johnathan. Although I made this box using more masculine colors I couldn’t resist putting a little “bling” on it. So I used my sharpie to color one of our Basic Rhinestone Jewels (item 119247).

Valentine Treat Box for Johnathan

And this final box is for my daughter, Kaitlin – so I made it using softer colors.  I just love the Primrose Petals 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon (item 126844), it’s so great to work I find myself reaching for it quite often.

Valentine Treat Box for Kaitlin

I really can’t decide which box is my favorite. Which one do you like the best? Why not leave me a comment below and let me know.

Would you like to see more Valentine’s Day projects? I’ve posted more projects on my face book page Stamp with Jini?
