Stampin Friends Love Theme Hop



Welcome to the Stampin Friends Love Themed Hop!  The theme is broad, but with Valentine’s Day coming up, I decided to create a Valentine’s Day card I think my grandchildren will love to receive.  I also made a matching treat bag that I can fill with treats.

If you have arrived from Raquelle Clifton’s amazing blog … welcome.  You can get back to her via the “previous button” or just keep on hopping and you will get to her soon.

Be sure to continue on though the hop until you get back to where you started.  I hope you find lots of inspiration as you hop on through!


 Here are my projects.  Everything I used is from Stampin’ Up!  … well except for the toothpicks!!

Yes .. this is a Twisted Pop-Up Card.  You’ve been seeing them everywhere, I imagine.  This was my first attempt … it was EASY!  So easy, I am teaching this in my class this week.  I am not going to bore you with the “how-to” because you can go take a peek over at “” under tutorials.  The tutorial even have a video at the end!

I LOVE the “Hey, Chick” Sale-a-bration” stamp set (143331).  You can get this set FREE with a $50 Stampin’ Up! order during Sale-a-bration … now through March 31, 2017.

Here is my card front.  Smoky Slate, Real Red and Whisper White are the cardstock colors.  I colored the combs with a Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker and the feet and beaks are Crushed Curry.

Do you LOVE the “chicken wire” I used as a background???  I grabbed that stamp from “Butterfly Basics” (137154) and stamped in Smoky Slate.  The chickens are done in Basic Black Archival ink and all sentiments are stamped in Real Red.  I used the Confetti Hearts Border punch to make the heart-y chicken feed.  I adhered those tiny hearts with our fine tip glue.

I cut out a wing and adhered it with a glue dot so the chicken can hold up the sign.  “Teeny Tiny Wishes” (127802) gave me “Happy Valentine’s Day”.

My Stamp-a-ma-jig (101049) saved the day for getting the chickens stacked just so!

Let’s open the card.  ….so cool!!  It opens and closes very smoothly.

 I’ll give you some close up looks at the individual panels.

I searched through my catalog to find the sentiments I wanted on each panel.  In the end, I used 6 stamp sets for this card!   booklet

“Ready to Pop” (141513) for panel #1 and the inside sentiment.  “Sweet Stack” (138948) for panels #2 & 3.  “Bloomin’ Love” (140643) gave the bouquet the silly moptop chicken in panel #4 is holding behind his/her back.

My project is a simple gift bag.  It’s is 5 1/2″ tall.   I hate to admit it, but this was the first time I used the gift bag punch board (135862).  I know I’ll be using it often.  I watched a video from Stampin’ Up!  on how to use it and I was off and scoring!20170116_213145_wm_resized
