Happy Friday everyone! Sneak Peek Week has been so much fun and now it's time for the best part...the BLOG HOP!!! If you came here from Emma's blog at My Creative Time then you are in the right place. If not, then make sure you head back over there to start at the beginning...you don't want to miss her awesome video. Otherwise, grab a warm cup of coffee, find a comfy place to sit and prepare to be inspired...the Design Team has some amazing and fun projects to show you.
Let's get readyyyyyyy to rumblllllllllle . . . I mean BLOOOOG HOOOOOOPPPPP!!! lol ;) Today, I am showcasing the 100% Sweetness stamp set and I couldn't help but also include the Stitched Lollipop Holder Die and the Classmate Valentines stamp set. They just all go together so perfectly!!!
For their encore performance (heehee), may I introduce once again ~ the Stitched Lollipop Holder Die, the 100% Sweetness stamp set and the Classmate Valentines stamp set. Along with best supporting actors ~ the Scallop and Stitched Circle Dies.
Ok...I just have to say again that these are my favorite of the whole release this month! There are a million ways to use these, but I wanted to make sure I showed you the 'traditional' way today. Aren't they just the cutest ever?!?! Your Valentines this year are going to be the absolute easiest and cutest ever!!
All of the paper for these cuties comes from the SEI ~ With All My Heart paper pad. And all of them are made with the new Stitched Lollipop Holder Die. Here are some close up shots:
For the topper on this one, I used the My Creative Time ~ Scallop and Stitched Circle Dies. In case you didn't know...those dies fit perfectly on the Lollipop Holder!! But of course we should know that, because Emma is AWESOME!! ;) The two cute stamps are from the new My Creative Time ~ Classmate Valentines stamp set. I used Memento ~ Rich Cocoa for the sentiment part and Ladybug Red for the sucker. If you look closely, I also colored in the sucker with a glittery/silver color from a Clear Star ~ Sakura Gelly Roll pen.
This one is super simple...all I did was add the ribbon...which is Celebrate It ~ Sheer Creations. When I say quick and easy...I really mean it!!!
Another simple one, but I don't know who this ribbon is from, I just pulled it out of my stash.
Simple one #3...just added the ribbon which is Celebrate It ~ Sheer Creations.
This is my favorite ribbon! Unfortunately though, it too is from my stash, so I don't know who makes it...sorry :(
Here's a group shot of the ones with suckers. They just slip in there real easily. You don't even need glue, because there are little holes in the back and in the front that you just thread the ribbon through. I know!!! I know!!! I'm tellin' ya......EASY PEASY.....as Emma would say ;)
For these two, instead of suckers ~ I used little baggies of Hershey's kisses. And for the toppers, I once again used the My Creative Time ~ Scallop and Stitched Circle Dies. The two sentiments are from the new My Creative Time ~ 100% Sweetness stamp set. For the one on the right, I added a little circle of rhinestones from Recollections. The ink is Memento ~ Rich Cocoa and Ladybug Red.
These two also have Hershey's kisses instead of lollipops. And both have the My Creative Time ~ Scallop and Stitched Circle Dies for the toppers. For the one on the left, the sentiment is from the new My Creative Time ~ 100% Sweetness stamp set. The heart is from the My Creative Time ~ Anyday Bingo & Crossword. The ink is Memento ~ Ladybug Red. I also added Xmas Red ~ Stickles to the heart for a little extra sparkle.
For the one on the right, the sentiment is from the new My Creative Time ~ Classmate Valentines stamp set. I actually taped off the word 'teacher' at the bottom and instead stamped a little chocolate kiss. The ink is Memento ~ Rich Cocoa. And I added Cinnamon ~ Stickles to the kiss for more sparkle.
Here they are as a group once again for their final bow LOL I just still can't get over how super easy these are to make and how absolutely cute they turned out to be. You could totally use these for every single holiday, not to mention birthday parties, bridal showers and wedding showers. Holy Cow...the possibilities are endless!!!!
