Valentine's Treat Bags + DIY Rosettes Tutorial

I'm glad to be able to share a DIY tutorial on a couple of pretty Valetine's treat bags I created! Ann Butler Designs' products were key during the process of making these projects I'm showing you today!

Supplies
Stamps: Colorbox Background Basics by Ann Butler - Basket 1 and Picnic 1
Inks: Colorbox Crafter's Inks by Ann Butler in Sunshine, Colorbox Crafter's Inks in Bark and Snow
Tools: Colorbox Color Blender, Westcott Titanium Bonded Trimmer and Titatium Non-stick Scissors. WRM Gift Bag Punch Board
Velcro Mini Fasteners - Round 3/8" Dots
Adhesives: Ad-Tech Crafter's Tape, Bazic two sided tape and foam tape, Uhu silicone glue
Enviromental Technologies Easy Cast Resin and Easy Mold Silicone Putty
Embellishments: White tulle, SU linen thread, Lara's Crafts jute twine, gold vintage button, handmade resin flower, staple, mini tag
Paper: Leather textured cardstock

I absolutely love the final look of these pretty treat bags, but for them to look like this I had to create every single thing from scratch. That's right! The embellishments, the bags themselves were all made from scratch! To see my step by step tutorial click HERE.

I have certainly been inspired to create pretty Valentine's projects lately, especially for friends and family. I also like to make projects in non-traditional Valentine's colors. In this particular ocassion I was also inspired by a nice blog hop and challenge being hosted by Latina Crafter!

I hope you enjoyed today's post and tutorial! Have a nice and creative weekend!

Pears & Flowers Step Card

You may know by now that I try to make time to create projects for some of my favorite challenges. I particularly enjoy the challenges back at the Mod Squad Challenge. This week the host is Lee... She is a great host... Love her! She challenged us to use something with a Fruit or Harvest theme... Yes, it's a Fruitful Harvest challenge!

I really wanted to create something special for Lee, so I took my time. Here is my design:




I stamped and heat embossed the flowers and two pears in gold. The first are from Flourishes' Over the Garden Gate stamp set, and the last are from Inky Antics' Holy Spirit's Fruit.

I colored the images with alcohol markers. Next I fuzzy cut and sponged them with a little Distress Ink in Peeled Paint.

I also heat embossed a sentiment from Flourishes' Spring Bouquet stamp set. I die cut the sentiment with Spellbinders French Frills set and sponged it very lightly, also with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. I embellished the label altering anoth…

Dreaming of a White Christmas
gilded & elegant christmas card

I have a confession to make... This year I've been drawn to make white and gold Christmas cards. I can't even think of traditional Christmas colors when I want to make a project! So today's poinsettia card and tutorial translate very well what Christmas is gonna be like this December at home.

White and gold look so elegant together! Since the holidays are all about sparkle too, I used one of my favorite glitter techniques and I'm sharing a quick and easy tutorial with youHERE.


I created the background myself, layering snowflake stamps in different designs, first in a very light beige, then in gold embossing. Afterwards, I dry embossed the stamped mat with a sutile polka dot design and used a brayer to apply light beige paint to the raised pattern.

As for the very layered and beautiful center of the card, I started out with an intricate die cut (see tutorial HERE) and continued building layers, with large snowflake die cuts and finally with a large handmade poinsettia …
