Valentine Ideas - Day 2

Okay, so you'll definitely get your money's viewing's worth today! :)
I've included THREE projects!!

FYI: I didn't think about making this a series until today, but yesterday's post could definitely be part of the series, so we'll just pretend it is, even though it's not titled that way, lol! :)

Boy, I tell ya felt SO good to create today!  I've got some things I'm really excited to show you today, so I'll just dig right in! :)

Day 1

A 3x3 card, candy packet, and valentine slider.

Want to see some closeup and more details?  OK! :)

First, the 3x3 card:
Here, I used the set "Filled with Love," carefully coloring the images with my Real Red & Old Olive ink pads. This is actually a single stamp (heart with stem), that I've stamped 3 times. Created my own "love" tag with a random SU stamp to complete the tied linen thread.

Now, the candy treat:
For this idea, I folded a piece of Real Red cardstock over one of our cello bags filled with cinnamon disks. The sentiment is from the same set ("Filled With Love"), stamped in white craft ink.  The hearts are from the set "I {Heart} Hearts."  With the flourish one, I inked it in red, stamped off once, then inked the edges again and stamped onto whisper white cardstock - just gives it a little variance instead of a solid image. The other heart is inked & stamped full strength onto white cardstock as well.

Finally, the Valentine Slider:

And an open view (pulled out):

Our Real Red cardstock cut, scored, and stamped with "Confetti" in white craft ink. The layers behind the sentiment (from "Filled With Love") are Pretty in Pink, and Pink Pirouette. The heart circle in the middle of the "O" is punched with our 3/4" punch, a pink brad in the center, and up on a dimensional. The "you" is handwritten. The ribbon is Pretty in Pink taffeta. It took me awhile to figure out the dimensions/scoring based on an old example from my stash...hopefully I've got it figured out now, lol! Would you like to see a tutorial on my blog? Let me know! :)

Well, what do you think? Would LOVE to hear from you! :)
