Happy Valentine's Day

Hi everyone,

Hope you are having a great day!
When I was thinking about sending my daughter and fiancé a little something for Valentine's Day I started with creating 2 treat bags using the Lawn Fawn Goodie Bag die. These were the first 2 bags:

I decided to show them to some of my work colleagues and that was the start of something big! I ended up making about 30 bags in total and filling them with Hershey Kisses. Here are some of my creations. I apologize for the not so good photos as I took them in my office but I must say that the setting was less than ideal.
Anyways here they are:

Supplies used:

Lawn Fawn Goodie Bag die
Lawn Fawn Heart dies
Simon Says Stamp Wishing die
Simon Says Stamp Sending die
Simon Says Stamp Small Heart Doily die
Papertrey Ink Love die
Penny Black Ink Hugs and Kisses dies from Love Expressions set
Simon Says Stamp Falling Hearts stencil
Tim Holtz Hearts stencil
Simon Says Stamp Sending & Wishing clear stamp set
Doodlebug Lovebugs 6x6 Paper pack
Glitter and metallic cardstock

Hello there,

I'm just sharing a card today that I created for the Online Card Classes - Clean & Simple 4 from a technique that Jocelyn Olson shared in class - Layered Embossing Paste Technique.

Here's my card:

I started with added a mix of watercolours on 2 corners. I then heat set the colours so I could move on to adding the white embossing paste over my stencil. I set that aside to dry thoroughly before adding another stencil of leaves to each corner but this time using translucent embossing paste. When that was dry I realized it didn't show up very well so I added some metallic ink with a sponge dauber. I the n die cut 2 vellum butterflies and then added my sentiment which I die cut twice, once in red and once in white.
Added some twine and some sequins and there you have it!

Thanks for stopping bye,
