Mother's Day Project (Paint Can Filled with Goodies)

Here is a project I created with a friend, fellow demonstrator of mine (who prefers not to be mentioned) some time ago. It uses one of my favorite sets, Roses In Winter, although it is retired now (still can't believe it). Any floral set would look GREAT though!
All of the "goodies" - the Card, post-it notes block, 2 pens, and Candle/Coaster all fit inside the can!
  • Roses in Winter
  • Any greeting set can be used -- for Mother's Day instead of Happy Birthday


  • Pretty in Pink
  • Rose Red
  • So Saffron (or Barely Banana)


  • Pretty in Pink
  • Rose Red
  • So Saffron (or Barely Banana)
  • Mellow Moss

Stampin' Up! Accessories

  • Cord
  • Cello bags (Large) for the Candle
  • Cello bags (Med/Small) for the Post-it block
  • SNAIL adhesive
  • Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Clear microbeads (on pens, held with Sticky Tape)

Non-Stampin' Up! Accessories

  • Paint Can -- Home Depot or Oriental Trading
  • Post-it block -- Michael's, Staples, Oriental Trading or other craft or office store
  • Tile (coaster) -- Home Depot (in a box of 8-10)
  • R.S.V.P pens -- Staples
  • Sheer green ribbon

Technique: Two Step and Stamp-Off

This project, although it contains a lot of pieces, is relatively easy. Basically you are just two-step stamping on everything with the Roses In Winter stampset: Big roses (Pretty in Pink base, Rose Red 2nd layer (but with Stamp-off so it's faded), center is just Rose Red; Leaves, stamp off the base in Mellow Moss, then simply stamp Mellow Moss for outline/2nd layer.

Hi! I'm Suzanne, found you by way of a comment on SUDSOL. I'm a 3 year fan of SU! and a new demonstrator. Just placed my 1st month order this morning. Exciting. You have some beautiful ideas. I had our stamp club yesterday and found white paper CD holders, stamped them with rose red/regal rose using the pretty peony set. Filled with a large cookie wrapped in plastic wrap, addd a piece of scrapbook paper in the background, added some ribbon to the top and gave as a gift for the ladies for joining the club...simple and they loved it!
