January Friends of WMS Blog Waltz 82

Mona Pendleton | Monday, January 17, 2011 @ 8:05 AM | ,

Hi There! Here today for the Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz. This month, Claire is challenging us all to create a Valentine/Love themed project.

Once the Waltz begins, you have plenty of time to visit all the participating blogs/galleries at your leisure. A separate thread will be set up for chat and a special game for a chance to win a stamp set of choice. And, of course, we will draw a name from all those who participate in the waltz to win a stamp set of choice! The competition doesn't end until 11:59 pm Eastern on January 19th, so you have plenty of time! We are playing the "watermark" game  - count the number of watermarks you find in the DT posts and then enter your guess in the chat thread for a chance to win a stamps set of choice. All the details are in the Waltzingmouse Forum (Playroom:Blog Waltzes), where you'll also find all the links for the waltz.
I made a treat gift set for my Valentine using Season's of Love - Tags, Vintage Ornaments, and Very Vintage Labels No. 10.


The gorgeous detailed heart is from Season's of Love - Tags. I stamped the heart with VersaMark ink then embossed the image with Silver embossing powder then using a S4-136 Classic Heart die template to cut/emboss the image and layered it on a scalloped heart cut/embossed using a S4-137 Classic Scalloped Heart die template.
The Be Mine...Valentine image on the card is from Season's of Love - Tags and the lil' motif is from Very Vintage Labels No. 10.
I made a lil' treat bag using the FREE Tea Bag Baggie template and filled it will a bunch of Hershey's kisses for my sweetie!
Up close, you can see how well the intricate design of the heart image "pops" when embossed. The for You sentiment is from Vintage Ornaments! Claire seems to pack various stamps in so many sets that can be used ANYTIME of the year!
Thanks for looking! Headed to work today, but I will be sure to catch up with the Waltz when I get home! Can't wait to see all the Valentine/Love projects! Be Sweet :)
