Good morning! Please click HERE to find out how you can save 10% off your Stampin' Up purchase now through January 31st!
So my huge box of Stampin Up goodies arrived yesterday afternoon and when hubby came home last night I went directly upstairs to get playing! Something I didn't realize about the new clear mount stamp option from Stampin' Up....the new stamp sets come in their own DVD-like case! I love this new option. The best thing about it is that you can store the sets upright like in a bookcase and the title is on the spine of the case. Super space saver!! Love love love! Of course it being Sale-a-bration as well, I stocked up on card stock and buttons and punches, oh my! And it was so worth it because I was eligible to receive all 6 SAB items which are fab! I could go on and on, but I will get to my project!
Ok, so I've been wanting to try my hand at these little sour cream containers for quite some time and I thought Valentine's Day would be perfect! This is such and easy thing to make, nothing hard about it at all. HERE is a link to some great instructions on SplitCoast Stampers. If any of you aren't already members there it's free and it's a priceless resource for stamping addicts like me.
I used this adorable set called Love Bandit as well as my new Sending Love specialty designer series paper both available in the Occasions Mini now through April 30th. I colored the image with Copic Markers and punched it out with my Marvy 3/16ths punch and mounted it on a scallop circle. I then punched out the sentiment with my word window punch, added a silver brad and added a punched heart from my three hearts punch. I added a glue dot to the back and stuck it on my sour cream container which is filled with Cherry Cordial Hershey's Kisses which are amazing!!!!!!
I still haven't had a minute to take the natural light photos with my new tabletop light studio, but I'll get there. Stay tuned as I have a bunch a of birthday cards to make including one for a man and for a two year old. Hope I can make them in time otherwise I'll be busting out the belated happy b-day stamp!!!
Have a great day!
