SIMPLY "LOVELY"...

As much as I like getting my hands on a brand new stamp set, I also enjoy stamping with an old tried-and-true set, like LOVELY AS A TREE...

Lovely Tree

The three layers are stacked with Stampin' Dimensionals...

and the finished look is just lovely (pardon the pun)...

I HEART YOU...

Little paper hearts are a big hit when layered with chocolate!

Bas1

. . . . . . . . . .


Bas2 

HERE'S HOW:  1) Top pink heart is made by using the Full Heart Punch and Designer Series Paper... (Any color combination will do, but pick papers that match your candy wrappers)... 2) The next layer is made with the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine and the Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslits Die... 3) Next layer is an individually wrapped piece of chocolate... 4) The bottom layer is punched from any matching card stock with the Full Heart Punch... 5) Each layer is adhered together with a piece of Sticky Strip... 6) Add a little sparkle with a Basic Rhinestone.

 Bas3

The plain red heart is made the same way - minus the pink layer.

I made this ceramic basket years ago and it has been enjoyed by kids and grandkids for many Valentine celebrations.

PAPER THAT INSPIRES...

I'm continuing this week with more examples of Designer Series Papers that have inspired me with card-making ideas. This paper made me see dots (and circles)...

I punched 3 extra dots (above) to slip inside the envelope as a bonus surprise for the recipient.  And the large circles (below) continue the design motif...
