Bouquet of Love Valentine Treats

Valentine’s Day is next week so it’s time to get those cards and treats ready to send or deliver.  I used the Bouquet of Love Hybrid Embossing Folder with Word Wishes and Love You More Than Dies to create some sweet Valentine treats for my adult children.Stampin' Up! Word Wishes Dies and Bouquet of Love Hybrid Embossing Folder Valentines with Mini paper Pumpkin boxes - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
This is a card and treat all in one! I decorated the front of the Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes like a card and filled it with my family’s favorite chocolate treats. (I even coordinated the cardstock with the candy.) These treats are so yummy as well as quick & easy to make! I love using the different colored M&M’s for every holiday.

The Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes are food safe and make it so easy to gift homemade treats! This is the perfect sentiment for these treats! I love word dies and the easiest way to apply these is to use the Adhesive Sheets. Simply adhere the adhesive sheet to the cardstock before cutting out the dies.  Then just remove the backing and adhere.

Let’s take a closer look at what you get with the NEW Bouquet of Love Hybrid Embossing Folder.

This set is so cool because you can emboss and die cut at the same time. It includes 9 dies and an embossing folder. I used the large heart die with the embossing folder and ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine in both Magenta Madness and Fresh Freesia cardstock for a two tone look. I love the stitched detail and great impressions you get with this set. You can purchase this set as a bundle with the Love & Happiness Stamp Set (and save 10%). I used A Wish for Everything Stamp Set with the Happy die from Word Wishes.

Simple Sweet Valentine Treats

I love to make little treat holders and 3D projects (in addition to cards of course)! Today’s project was inspired by my friend Margie.  We got together for our monthly card club and she gave me a Hershey Kiss Treat holder she is making at the Senior Center for the Veterans Home. She knows how much I love to make little treat holders.  These treats are quick & easy to create!

I modified mine a little from Margie’s so I could maximize my Designer Series Paper. (Hers held 5 candy kisses and mine holds 4.) Here’s Margie’s that was my inspiration.

Here’s all the details for mine.

  1. Cut Designer Series Paper 4 x 5 and score at 1 1/4, 2 1/2, and 3 3/4.
  2. Adhere Hershey Kisses with glue dots or Tear & Tape.
  3. Cut a belly band at 2 x 5 and loosely wrap around and adhere on the bottom.  *You want to make sure it will slide off easily.
  4. Wrap Braided Linen Trim around the belly band and tie a bow.
  5. Stamp sentiment on 1/2″ Whisper White and trim to make a banner. (I love this sentiment and font from my January Paper Pumpkin kit!)
  6. Adhere sentiment to 1/2″ Crumb Cake banner and attach to belly band with a glue dot.

You can use DSP or cardstock for your holder. Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Series Paper is great quality and I love seeing the double sided design when you open and see inside.

I hope you enjoyed this simple sweet treat holder.  Grab some DSP and go make some! These would be quick & easy to create for your child’s classmates or coworkers, etc. I’m going to make some for the ladies at the post office who are always so friendly and helpful when I come in with my big bag of mail each month! (*Last month’s card kits have all been shipped and should be in your mailbox this week!)

Have a wonderful week!

A Mini Gable Box for Tic Tac Toe Challenge #34


I am the designer for this week’s Tic Tac Toe challenge and due to my fractured elbow I was disappointed I wouldn’t be able to create a project this week! So I went with Plan B and with my husband’s help, made this little valentine treat to send to our daughter.

Stampin Up Mini Gable Box Valentine treat idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s this week’s challenge board…


This quick & easy treat box actually made Tic Tac Toe 3 different ways: down the middle, across the middle, and diagonal. This project uses some of the new items from the Occasions catalog. The Silver Mini Gable Box (found on page 13) is embossed with the floral design from the new Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folders (page 23).  My husband is not a craft person but he will do anything for me!  Definitely a keeper!

The box is easy to put together. The love die cut from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits is cut from Berry Burst cardstock and adhered using a few glue dots.  The sentiment is from the January Paper Pumpkin kit and goes perfect with the Hershey Chocolate Hugs & Kisses! The sentiment is stamped in Berry Burst ink on Whisper White cardstock and punched on both ends with the Triple Banner Punch. A couple of silver hearts from the Metallic Enamel Shapes and a simple bow with the new Berry Burst Metallic-Edge Ribbon was all this box needed.  Well, almost all…it’s filled it with chocolate Hugs & Kisses!  I wish I could deliver them in person!

See how simple it is to create using elements from the challenge board?! I would really love for you to play along this week with my ABC challenge board. Just pick 3 in a row and create!  I have to live vicariously through your stamping creations until I regain the strength and mobility in my arm!

Here’s the Tic Tac Toe Challenge Rules:

  1. Create a new project. You can create any project and use any elements/supplies as long as it fits within the three elements (in a row, column or diagonal) of your choosing from the tic tac toe challenge board that is set for the current challenge.
  2. You may enter up to a maximum of 3 times as long as the creations are new.
  3. If you have a blog, you should include the challenge graphic in your post and link back to our challenge.
  4. If you are posting in a gallery (like SplitCoast, Pinterest, or any other social media platform), make sure you mention our challenge with a link back to the challenge and use the hashtag #tictactoechallenge and the hashtag found on the challenge (eg: #tttc001)
  5. Your submission link should be a direct link to your project post, not a general link to your blog, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest or other gallery account.  Incorrect links are not eligible for Designers’ Picks, and may be deleted.
  6. We want to leave you comments, but if you are linking your project to a closed group or a site that requires us to register, we may not be able to! Please be sure to post on an open forum so we can leave comments on your wonderful cards. No CAPTCHAs please! Please remember to turn off word verification.
  7. All submissions are due Tuesday at noon CST – that’s when the InLinkz will close. Winners will be announced on Wednesday. New challenges go live every Thursday.
