Valentine Tag

Hi! Today I want to share a valentine tag I created using a stamp set from SP & Company. This is a stamp company that I was introduced to when I became a member of the Design Team. Samantha, designer and owner of SP&Co., is the team leader for the iCopic DT.....and a new bride!! Congratulations!

Here is one of the stamp sets SP & Company released for January. It is called 'Artsy Heartsy'. The set has 8 clear heart stamps (6 of these are textured) and 5 sentiments. It is a perfect set for making valentines, gift tags, and scrapbook layouts. While using these stamps I was quite impressed by the clear detailing of them.

Here is my tag:

The heart flower embellishment on my tag was created with the 'wavy heart' from the stamp set. I stamped the heart four times on white cardstock. I used Memento tuxedo black ink just in case I decided later to color the hearts with Copic markers. I then cut the hearts out with a Spellbinder Nestabilities, adhere the hearts to a circle, and adhered the circle to a scalloped circle.

This photograph shows hearts stamped with the 'cross-hatch' stamp.

The heart on the clothespin was made by stamping the 'dotted heart' stamp on pink cardstock.

As you can see, the stamp set is quite versatile. By using different colors of ink, Copic markers, embossing powders, or cardstock with the 8 different hearts the combinations are endless.
