Stamp Review Crew – Valentine Free For All

Welcome to a special edition of the Stamp Review Crew. Today we’re having a free for all! Instead of focusing on a single stamp set, we’re each selecting stamps from both the annual and Occasions catalogs to create Valentines cards. Let me start out by saying that for me, Valentine’s Day is not so much about hearts and flowers as it is about the candy! Chocolate-covered marshmallow hearts, cinnamon jelly hearts, chocolate kisses and of course, conversation hearts – don’t get me started. With all the candy choices, you need something cute to put it in. πŸ™‚ I was excited when I saw the mini treat bag framelit in the Occasions catalog. I figure it will be just the thing to help me use up some of my leftover paper. The framelits set has lots of cute pieces like the row of hearts I used to cut out near the top of the bag. Insert a cello bag full of candy (pretend they’re cinnamon jelly hearts) and tie it off with a bow.

Like the clip? I covered one of our mini clothespins with washi tape.

Also in the Occasions catalog are these cute little craft boxes – the perfect sized for a small treat. I used Real Red card stock and paper from the Stacked with Love paper pack and topped it off with a tissue paper flower. You get 25 food-safe boxes – plenty for the classroom Valentine’s Day party or just general treat giving. (Wow – sorry if the background makes your eyes boggle. Still figuring out my new camera. πŸ˜‰ )

Ok, I couldn’t end without at least one Valentine’s card. The Wood You Be Mine set cracks me up. My hubby’s not really the lumberjack type, but too bad – he’s getting this card for Valentine’s Day. πŸ™‚

The lumberjack is my feeble attempt at the Out of the Box technique. Needs some work. Don’t know if you can see the clouds. I created these by sponging over a template given to me by my friend and stamping buddy, Geraldine. The designer paper is from the Adventure Bound paper pack. Each sheet has a pattern on one side and a photo-realistic image on the other. These sheets are great for cards and scrapbooking Well, that’s it for me. Time to move on to Debra’s blog, where you’re sure to get some great inspiration!
