 I made this valentine with my new stamp set Lots of Washi.

I stamped the circle strip with versamark on the 2.5 x 3.5 artist trading card size piece of card stock.  I printed the sentiment on white card stock and added some hearts with Becky's new Folk Filigree set.


These are mini whoopee cushions - the perfect valentine gift for a

  4th grade boy to give out to his classmates! A shout out to Heather Courtney who shared a Pinterest link about whoopee valentines! Thanks my crafty friend!

Here is a card which I created faux washi tape strips using Lots of Washi & Lots of Dots. The sentiment is from Signs of Spring by Theresa Momber. The frame is from Lots of Dots Alphabet. A few sequins adorn the card to give it some sparkle!



Finally, here is a card which I created with Lots Of Washi and Lots of ThanksIt uses custom bakers twine.  I made a video showing the process of creating this card.  Hope you like it!




I cannot wait to share more of the ideas with you next week during our design team hop! See you tonight at the release party!
