Stampin' Addicts Occasions Mini Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to Stampin' Addicts Occasions Mini Blog Hop.  This Blog Hop will run Friday Dec 30 thru Jan 1 so there is lot's of time to view all the stops.  If you have been following the hop in order you have just arrived from Paula's Blog where she wowed us with her projects made with the Edgelit Dies and matching Emboss Folders.  There are 16 stops on the hop and I am stop 3.  So if you are just begining with my blog be sure and hop all the way around till you come back to my blog so you won't miss any of the fantastic projects that have been designed for your viewing pleasure.  Ok on to my projects.  The stamp set I chose to showcase was "PS I Love You".  I just love making valentines so when I saw it I had to have it.
I chose to use some of the new DSP called Twitterpated for accents so my color choices were Basic Gray, Riding Hood Red and Whisper White. 

For my first card I chose to use the Framed Tulip Embossing Folder, Perfect Polka Dots Folder, Hearts Collection Framelits Dies, Full Heart Punch, Modern Label Punch, Whisper White 5/8" Oraganza Ribbon, Basic Gray 1/4" Taffeta Ribbon, Basic Gray and Riding Hood Red Inks, Sticky Strip and Dimensionals.
For my second card I used the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Boarder Punch, 1 3/8" Circle, 1 3/4" Scallop Circle, & 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punches, Basic Rhinestones and Dimensionals.

For my last project I thought it would be fun to make a matching box for my 2nd card, so that's what I did.  So I used most of the same stuff as the card but added the Word Window Punch to make handles for my box.  I also used the Simply Score to make it.  I got the basic pattern for the box from Andrea Walford.  If you come back on Monday I'll post measurements on where to score to make the box.  So now you are ready to hop on over to Rhonda's Blog and see her amazing creations using the stamp set "Boardering on Romance".  Happy hopping everyone. ♥
