Stampin Up! Mail

During the ice storm my MIL's mailbox was damaged so my DH went out and bought her a new one. Well, he shouldn't have left it within my reach, lol. I ordered the small Flower Garden Decor Elements and now she has the prettiest mailbox in town. I used my sisters Cricut to cut my Stampin up White Wall Vinly for her name and house number. In Joy!

Rub On Your Scentsy

What is Scentsy?  It's the Queen of Candle Warmers!  I purchased this smooth design for my stamp room to use with rub ons and it worked great.  These warmers use an appliance bulb so the wax in the top tray melts but isn't too hot to touch.  They have too many fragrances to mention but my favorite so far is Ocean.  I have had it for months and it still holds its fragrance.  If you decide to try one of these warmers and I am sure you will love it too. In Joy!

Valentine Treats

Happy Valentines Day!  My 8 year old daughter and I made these treats to handout to neighbors and friends.  We cut Pink Pirouette in strips of 3"x11" and scored at 4", 5 1/2" & 9 3/4".  Next we stamped them with the heart trio stamp from Love You Much in Riding Hood Red.  After folding these you will see that it's a match book fold.  We then stapled a bag of candy from the top and punched a window in the front using the Curly Label punch.  Lastly, we hid the staple using Riding Hood Red and Whisper White stamped with the Hugs & Kisses stamp.  In Joy!

Got mail?

Who doesn't love the dollar spot at Target?  I love these little mailboxes they have around Valentine's day.  This one is decorated using Raspberry Tart DSP, Lovely Letters, Kiwi ink, Tag punches and various ribbon pieces.  My daughter Gabby loved it!  In Joy!

Valentine Card

Oh my, I can't believe it's been two months since my last post.  I don't really have any great excuses other than LIFE happened.  This is my valentine card for my DH.  The card base is Chocolate Chip with a layer of Pink Pirouette lightly stamped with the large heart stamp from Love You Much.  I am not sure what the technique is called on this one but I stamped the Love You Much stamp with chocolate chip on vellum cardstock.  Take your vellum and turn it upside down on your foam pad from the paper piercing set and dry emboss with the stylus.  Before turning it over take a sponge and ink over the image with Regal Rose ink.  Now you are ready to layer this piece on Regal Rose and Choc Chip.  Next I punched a heart in two corners using the Heart to Heart punch to slide my Choc Chip Taffeta ribbon thru.  Lastly I used my Heart to Heart punch for some more hearts.  I love the way the vellum turns white when dry embossed and the sponging makes it pop even more.  In Joy!
