Pop-Up Posies Treat Bag

Hello Friends!

There is a cute little kit in the Spring Catalog called Pop-Up Posies.  It includes everything you need to create 9 flowers and tags, including instructions!  It also includes a single, wood-mount stamp "Just for You".

I made the pool party flower and used the vanilla fabric-covered brad for the center.  I stamped the tag using Early Espresso ink and tied the tag onto a large cell bag using the thick vanilla baker's twine that is included in the kit.  The bag is filled with Hershey's nuggets.

Miracles Happen!

Hi Friends ~

Here is a fun and colorful card that we made at club in January. The DSP is just so happy! I love this card - it reminds me that spring and flowers and butterflies will be here before we know it!!

To create this card, you'll start with a white card, layer a 5.25x4 piece of Lucky Limeade on that, followed by a 5x3.75 piece of the rainbow stripey paper from the Sunshine and Sprinkles DSP pack. You'll then punch 3 scallop squares and one decorative label from Lucky Limeade cardstock. Now punch 3 Bitty Butterflies and one Elegant Butterfly from Daffodil Delight. Attach the butterflies to the Lucky Limeade Scallop Squares with stampin' dimensionals and add a rhinestone to the center, layered butterfly. Attach each of these to the card using SNAIL. On a piece of Whisper White, stamp the butterfly from "Bloomin' Marvelous" using Daffodil Delight ink. Stamp off on your mat first, then stamp on the whisper white. Next, you'll stamp "miracles happen" using Lucky Limeade ink on the white. Punch and adhere to decorative label and then attach to card.

These cards go together quickly and are fun to assemble. You'll get 12 from one pack of DSP - and still have ten more 12x12 sheets for another project!
