Time for Valentines

Hi!  Today I am kicking off 3 Days of Valentine Treat Holders!

First up, this easy-peasy Ribbon Pull-Up treat holder!

Valentines, Love, Treat Holder, Lots to Love, Painted Love, Stampin' Up!, SU!It is amazing how quick and easy this little treat holder is to make.  All you need is a 4×6 piece of Designer Series paper, a hole punch and ribbon!  If you have a definitive pattern to your paper, you want the length to be 6″ and the height 4″.  For my holder, I used the Painted Love Specialty Designer Series Paper found in the Occasions Catalog.

Score your 4×6″ piece of paper at 1/2″ along the 6″ side.

Fold and add Tear & Tape along the 1/2″ strip and along the bottom.

Adhere the side tab and then starting at the tab end, adhere the bottom.


Use a bone folder to flatten the pouch.

Punch a hole (I used a 1/4″ retired Stampin’ Up! punch) in the center of the top and run a 14″ piece of ribbon through the holes.



Place treats in pouch – using the treats to push the ribbon down into the pouch.

Tie ribbon or use a piece of Baker’s Twine to tie the ribbon together and decorate the front as desired.

Valentines, Treats, Stampin' Up!, Sure Do Love You, SU!

The recipient just needs to pull up on the ribbon to pull the treats out of the pouch!

More Fun with Brushos

Hi!  I am back today with another card made using the Brushos!

Brushos, Watercoloring, Dragonflies, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Thanks

I actually demonstrated how to do this background on my Facebook page Tuesday night, Jan 30th.  You’ll find it on this page.  The Brushos are quite fun to play with – there are so many different techniques and so many colors you can make from the 5 colors that come in the set.

For this particular background panel, I sprinkled the Yellow and Brilliant Blue Brushos on Whisper White cardstock then spritzed with water.  If you spritz at an angle, the colors will spray and spread more than if you spritz straight down.  Once dry, it was layered on a piece of Basic Black card stock.  My base is the Thick Whisper White.

For the dragonflies, die cut from a scrap of Basic Black cardstock.  Embellish with Wink of Stella Clear.  They’ll become sparkly:

Dragonflies, Brushos, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Occasions2018

The fun with Brushos – even when using the same two colors – you can get a different look!   I hope you’ll give them a try!

All supplies used in the making of this card can be found in my on-line store.  Use hostess code: AWRFCDQY

And don’t forget, we are still Sale-A-Brating and you earn FREE products on qualifying orders!
