This week, while organizing my scrap space, I came across some long lost items. First I found some embossing powders which I haven't seen in who knows how long. They were hidden behind a cute little container with small embellishments. This sent me on a search for my heat gun and embossing pad, which took a while but I found it! This got me thinking - why would these things not be stored together? (I feel a re-organization post coming soon!) I immediately whipped out some stamps and started playing around. I forgot how much I loved watching the embossing powder change under the heat! - Crazy right?!?!
I stamped some hearts onto kraft card stock using a stamp from the $1 bin at Michael's. I then embossed it using a clear glitter powder. I cut out the heart and attached it to this cute little tag. I am currently obsessed with this light blue-pink color combo! Perfect for Valentine's Day. I added a splash of green and that's when it hit me! This was the color combo of my teen-age bedroom in the 90's. Maybe that's why I like it so much!
I used coordinating papers in a a light blue polka-dot and stripe and added an Amy Tan 'love' embellishment, along with the embossed heart. You can also see a strip of pink heart patterned paper. I used wash-tape in coordinating colors and some brads to give it more dimension. Topped it off with some baker's twine, a mini-punched heart and sweet sentiment.
