Be Mine Valentine Tags

Winter is finally here ... brrr.  Yesterday I dug out my winter gloves and scarf (I know I should have done it sooner).  While my kitty slept by the fire, I took to my craft room to work on more Valentine's Day projects.  I just love handmade gifts for the different occasions.

I cut some beautiful rose patterned paper using a Spellbinders Nested Heart die.  While keeping the paper in the die I sponged Brilliance Platinum Planet ink over the embossing.  A smaller heart was cut with the Classic Hearts die.  Be Mine was stamped in Bravo Burgundy ink and embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder.  The edges were inked in Pink Pirouette.  The little heart was popped up to give dimension.



A pretty pink rose was adhered to the top with 1/4" satin white ribbon.  These were super quick and easy to create while dinner was in the oven.  Oh, and in case you are wondering Lasagna was on the menu.


I received the new Stampin' Up Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs (thank you so much Terry).  Well, I have to say I'm a little disappointed as SU is coming out with more and more photopolymer stamps.  These are my least favorite and not the best stamps for embossing or using StazOn inks.  Did anything special catch your eye?  I thought the Bloomin' Love set was adorable with the matching Heart Thinlits Die.  Just wish it was a rubber stamp set  :-(

Have a wonderful evening and to all my friends in the Northeast - keep warm!

Hi Donna! Happy New year to you!! Your Valentine projects are just scrumptious! Bravo Burgundy ink is just the perfect color to accent your beautiful designer paper! I haven't placed an order from the new Stampin Up Catalogs .... there's nothing that's really calling me!
