Blog Hop Time!!!

Today is the last day of our week long party and the 
Blog Hop!!

The big day is finally here!! You can purchase all of the fun new stamp and metal die sets today!

Click HERE to go shopping right away!  I have also added a link to each individual set - just click on the title above the picture.

This has been such a fun week and I am so excited to show you all of the new stamp sets and metal dies today!  Thank you so much for all of your sweet comments.  :)

Here are my projects for today:

Valentine Tag

I love the chalkboard look!  I first stamped my sentiment with Versamark watermark ink.  Then sprinkled a fine white embossing powder on top and heat embossed.  I inked everything with an older white ink pad.  (A brand new one would leave too much ink.)  I added some smudges with my finger too.

Metal Dies:  Ribbon Banners - wavy

Candy Box

I found this fun cut file - 3D heart candy box - on the Silhouette website.

My parents make the most delicious homemade chocolates!

 Stamps:  Banner Sentiments
Metal Dies:  Ribbon Banners - wavy, Heart Border (small red heart)

 Gable Box

This box went together really fast!  I inked the edges with Walnut ink, cut a border using the new Fancy Edges metal dies, and made my banner sentiment.  I hand cut the tag.  For the key (from the new Heart Border), I inked it and then added glossy accents for a more metallic look.

Metal Dies:  Ribbon Banners - wavy, Heart Border (key and hearts), Fancy Edges
