Valentine's Love

Happy Monday!

With Valentines's Day fast approaching we here at Get Inky design team have been given the challenge to create something with Valentine's theme.

Felt in Love

Hope you are enjoying your Tuesday on this gorgeous February day.

The card I made for the "Stamping on Felt" challenge over on the Get Inky Challenge Blog was very simple yet stunning.

Stamping on felt was a first time for me, and with help from Blue Moon Creations owner and founder I got a few tips. Use pigment ink :)

Get Inky has some wonderful stamps that are sooo versatile and can be used in a wide range of formats.

Here is the card recipe:

  1. Jar, lemons, lace and sentiment from Get Inky Stamp Set- Click Here to see it.
  2. Paper is from My Minds Eye
  3. Kraft paper card
  4. Twine and Ribbon
  5. Velum paper

Heartfelt Creations Gift Bag

Heartfelt Creations has a new collection Majestic Morning Collection, and with Valentines right around the corner I wanted to make something for my daughter's teacher. I did not want her to be "my valentine" but simply an appreciation for all her hard work. This collection is simply stunning and the versatility in the paper pack allowed me to make a gift bag with my Silhouette Cameo.
I began by selecting a 12x12 sheet from the Majestic Morning Paper Collection and placing that in my Silhouette Cameo. The box is from Lori Whitlock 3D Treat Bag. Let me make a note that this paper did super well in the cameo, the cuts were crisp and clean. silhoutte
This is what I ended up with:
Next I proceeded to fold the bag and place adhesive on one side. Next I cut a carnation using Spellbinders Carnation Creations via Cuttlebug.
Here is the end result:
Gorgeous, right?! Next assemble your flower using a brad and set aside.
Now to work on our tag. The Majestic Morning paper pack has several tags to choose from. Just select one and cut it out.
Along to coordinate with the paper pack, Heartfelt Creations has 6 sets of pre-cut stamps. For this piece I am using one of the Majestic Morning Bouquet. I stamped it with StazOn and colored it in with watercolor markers. As a finishing touch I placed that gorgeous carnation on the tag, tided the ribbon on the baggie and ready to go!

I will be filling this treat bag with an assortment of chocolates, and giving this to my favorite 1st grade teacher. I cannot wait to make other gifts and coordinating cards with this collection.  
Thanks and Happy Scrapin'!
