Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Hi Everyone, 

and Welcome to this weeks MIUM Challenge!

With Valentines around the corner,

and lots of people showing their love for one another,

I just couldn't resist making my Grandkids a little something special... :)

So for your Challenge this week...

Show Some Love!

You have lots of choices here...

Use the Color Red, and or a Heart...

Or a stamp that has the word Love or Valentines in it. 

It can be a card or a 3D project. 

Let me show you what I made for the kids.

Here are the Items I used:

Stamp Sets - Half Pint Heros  -  Half Pint Heroines  By: Claire Brennan

                      Only You  -  By: Gina K. Designs & Unity Stamp Co.

Pure Luxury Card Stock - Grass Green, Dusty Rose & White Layering Weight

Premium Dye Ink - Powder Blue, Black Onyx, Dusty Rose, Red Hot

Pattern Paper Pack: Fishy Fiesta (His)  and Smitten & Delicate Essentials (Hers)

Twisted Twine - Bubble Gum Pink & Blue Denim 

Clear Boxes, Mementos Black Ink, White Pen

All from Gina K. Design Store

Colored With Copics

On His & Hers: A Heart Stamped Image & the Words Valentines

This project uses 3 clear boxes taped together.

I didn't just load them up with candy... LOL

the middle box has a bag popcorn in it so they can watch a movie

and pop them some popcorn!  :) 

Also I found this project in the Freebies section.

Just look up above the advertisement banner and

you will see the word Freebies...

Lots of great stuff there! 

I will be looking forward to see what you all create!  ;)

Thanks for the great challenge, Karen. Can't wait till I get home from work this afternoon to start on it. Think I'll have to stick to a card - time restraints make it a necessity.

This should be fun.  Your grandkids will love those fun boxes.

What a fun project, Karen! Your grandkids are going to love them!

Very cute!

Cute projects. Those Heroes and Heroines sets are perfect for them and I'm sure the grandkids will love them. Fun challenge.

This should be fun. Love the boxes, especially younger kids. Might try one on my 20 granddaughter. If it has popcorn, she would love it! Thanks for the challenge

I am Stuck I have no grandkids and Valentines another rose

I love your treat boxes. They are awesome and will be so appreciated by those who receive them. I did not do as an elaborate a project but instead just made a simple CARD. But I hope you like it.

You can just make a card to let someone know you love them... It don't have to be for Grandkids!  <3
