Hampton Art and Core'Dinations Blog Hop - Day 5

Welcome to the Hampton Art Core'Dinations Hop! It looks like Blogger left out my pictures this morning, so I'm really sorry if you dropped by earlier and missed my project.

I used one of my favorite Hampton Art stamp sets for this card - Best of Times.  I stamped the flourishes on the blue paper, and colored it in with the Smooch Illuminate. The vines were heat embossed, using the same set, as well as the sentiment.

I love how fun it was to distress the Core'Dinations papers! They created the greatest texxtures for this card.

Valentine Tag

You just have a couple more days to pull together your Valentine's goodies, and what ever you choose, it always makes things extra special to add some homemade love.  I created a tag to decorate a bottle of champagne for the special occasion, but you could just as easily add this to a box of chocolates (or even better - both!)


 I added the sentiment over the printed vintage picture (Pion Papers) -
