Dear Valentine–Part II

Wood You Be Mine?

Wood you be mine 1

I love this card!  Complete with log chunks, this card is perfect for the man in your life – your Dad, hubby, boyfriend, brother, uncle, neighbor.  Keeping with the Calypso Coral and Real Red color theme, this Valentine card has DSP – again from the Love DSP Stack, logs cut from some “antique” DSP, and the cutest lumberjack ever.  Blendabilities quickly add color to the lumberjack , and background trees place our guy deep in the forest.  The addition of Calypso Coral ribbon and a few hearts give a soft touch.  I must admit, however, that the red glitter heart is placed as it is for a very good reason – a smudge of Early Espresso that was the result of dirty fingertips!  Alas, I remembered our motto – when you have a lemon, make lemonade.  So, I grabbed my small heart punch, some red glitter paper, and behold – the smudge is now WELL HIDDEN!  Everyone will enjoy making this cute card at February Dear Valentine Stamp Camp.

By now, creating 4 cards using my Love DSP Stack, I had quite a few bits and pieces of designer paper.  Wanting to be “green”, I developed our final project for the Dear Valentine Stamp Camp. 

2015-01-19 2015-01-19 001 025A double treat box seemed like the perfect way to use scraps of DSP.  These Tiny Treat Boxes are perfect for candy or other little goodies for special people.  The boxes are inexpensive – 25 for $6.95.  They construct easily and are very sturdy.  Plus, each panel is easily decorated with a 1 3/4 inch square of DSP.  Although I have connected the two boxes in the past with sticky strip, I chose to leave these boxes attached only with the sturdy grosgrain ribbon.  I added one of the darling bows made with DSP and the new Bow Builder Punch, stamped Happy Valentines Day on Whisper White CS, die cut the message, sponged it in red and attached it with a cute little gold colored clothespin.  Isn’t this a cute idea?

Now that you’ve seen all 4 projects for the February Dear Valentine Stamp Camp, aren’t you ready to come on over and start the fun?  I hope you can make it.  The dates and hours are:  Thursday February 5th from 2 – 9 PM; Friday February 6th from 2 – 9 PM; and Saturday February 7th from 9 AM to 4 PM.  The cost remains the same as 2013 – $12.00, and includes all materials and tools you will need. 

REMEMBER – Free DSP if you let me know by January 26th that you are coming.  The Love DSP Stack is too cute and this is a great way to get it at no extra cost to you.  Don’t forget about Sale-A-Bration.  Give me a call if you have any questions!
