Valentine Treats and My Paper Pumpkin, New from Stampin’ Up!

I’m Paper Pumpkin . . .

I come to your door each month (a fully decked-out creativity carriage). I’ll help you to escape your life with some paper fun.

I come in a sweet box, but you’ll really love what you find on the inside:

All the stamps, ink, paper, and accessories to create pinable projects. Create stuff like cards, journals, décor, and more!

Paper Pumpkin by Stampin’ Up! is a new monthly kit program that anyone can enjoy!

Today I’m sharing a quick Valentine card and treat that I made with the Valentine Treat Bundle that is only available until January 21 from Stampin’ Up.

Happy Valentine Heart 2

Here is a closer photo of the card:

Happy Valentine Heart

Here is the list of products that you will need to create the card:

  • Happy Valentine Heart Single Stamp (132771 available in clear mount only)
  • Hearts a Flutter (129249 wood, 129252 clear)
  • Hearts a Flutter Framelits Dies (130159)
  • Full Heart Punch (119883)
  • Cloudy Day Texture Impressions Embossing Folder (127022)
  • Rhinestone Basic Jewels (119246)
  • Melon Mambo 3/8″ Striped Organdy Ribbon (129293)
  • Sunshine & Sprinkles Designer Series Paper (126922)
  • Melon Mambo Stampin’ Emboss Powder (123223)
  • VersaMark Pad (102283)
  • Heat Tool (129053)
  • Melon Mambo Classic Stampin’ Pad (126949)
  • Whisper White Card Stock (100730)
  • White Vellum Card Stock (101856)
  • SNAIL Adhesive (104332)
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430)

I started with a Whisper White card base cut to 4-1/4″ x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″.  Then I cut a panel of Sunshine & Sprinkles DSP to  3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ and a panel of Whisper White Card Stock to 3″ x 3″.  I embossed the Whisper White panel with the Cloudy Day Embossing Folder and adhered it with SNAIL to the DSP panel.  Then I wrapped a  strip of the 3/8″ Organdy Ribbon around the center of the layered panel and adhered it with SNAIL.  Next, I stamped the Happy Valentine Heart image on Whisper White Card Stock in VersaMark ink, sprinkled it with Melon Mambo Stampin’ Emboss Powder, heat embossed it and punched it out with the Full Heart Punch.  Then I stamped the scalloped heart from the Hearts a Flutter stamp set in Melon Mambo ink on White Vellum and cut it out with the scallop heart framelit from the Hearts a Flutter Framelits Dies.  I adhered the two hearts together with SNAIL, then adhered them to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  To finish the card, I adhered the layered panel to the Whisper White card base with SNAIL and then added a rhinestone to each corner.

And here is a closer photo of the heart lollipop:

Here is the list of products that you will need to create the treat:

  • Happy Valentine Heart Single Stamp (132771 available in clear mount only)
  • Hearts a Flutter (129249 wood, 129252 clear)
  • Hearts a Flutter Framelits Dies (130159)
  • Full Heart Punch (119883)
  • Circles #2 Originals Die (114526) or 2-1/2″ Circle Punch (120906)
  • Melon Mambo 3/8″ Striped Organdy Ribbon (129293)
  • Sunshine & Sprinkles Designer Series Paper (126922)

  • Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430)

I created the layered hearts the same as above.  I adhered them to the heart lollipop with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then I tied a little bow around the base of the lollipop with the 3/8″ Striped Organdy Ribbon.  Next, I cut a 2-1/2″ circle of Sunshine & Sprinkles DSP with the Circles #2 Die (or you can punch out a circle with your 2-1/2″ Circle Punch) and adhered it to a Tea Lace Paper Doily with SNAIL.  To finish, I adhered the lollipop to the doily with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
