The Happy (Half) Hour Live Show

The Happy (Half) Hour Live show | Tuesdays at 2PM ET on The Joyful Stamper Facebook Page

Every Tuesday at 2 PM ET I go live on The Joyful Stamper Facebook Page.  Today I'll show you 5 ways to use the Peaceful Poppies Elements, found on page 25 of Stampin' Up!'s Mini Catalog.  There are printed die-cuts in color and on black cardstock, embossed vellum pieces, and embossed watercolor pieces.  You get 2 sheets of each type for $6.50, so it's a really good value!  Plus, they are so fun and versatile to play with!

Easy Valentine Candy Holder

Easy Valentine candy holder using Stampin' Up!'s From My Heart suite | great for class parties | by Nicole Steele The Joyful Stamper

This is a great little folio that can hold a small bag of gummy bears (I used these).  SNAIL nicely attaches the candy bag to the cardstock.

  • Score a 10-1/2"x3-1/2" piece of Real Red cardstock at 3", 3-1/2", 6-3/4", & 7-1/4".
  • Stamp images on Flirty Flamingo cardstock using Heartfelt set, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, and Real Red ink.
  • Punch heart with Heart Punch Pack and fussy cut arrow with Paper Snips.
  • Die-cut From My Heart DSP with Layering Squares die or to 3-1/4" square.  Glue to front of candy holder.
  • Tie Real Red Double-Stitched Satin Ribbon around holder.  Layer on Heart Doily and other stamped elements.  Add From My Heart Faceted Gems with Fine-Tip Glue.
This is a fantastic project if you need to make multiples, for a child's Valentine's class party or to pass out to neighbors, for example.  You can find all the supplies in my online store.
