Hug Me Valentine!

Hi everyone! Von Marie here and I have a sweet Valentine Gift to share with you using some of my favorite Jaded Blossom Stamps, Dies, and a New Stencil.

I love socks! I love to gift them and I love to receive them.  Also they are a cute, cheap and fun item to purchase.  I decided to make a topper for my Valentine Cactus socks that I purchased from the dollar store using the Ric Rac Topper Die.  I had these cute cactus images already stamped and cut out from You Are Succulent, So I colored them up with my copic markers to match the socks and added one with foam tape to my topper.

I cut out my topper using a fun cactus pattern paper from my stash.  I then used the Random Hearts Stencil for my top layer.  I embossed a sheet of pink cardstock using VersaMark and white embossing powder.  I also made a paper rosette using a silver metallic crepe paper which I diecut using the Scalloped heart die from the Valentine Dies.  I then layered it with a red Heart lock and key diecut.  I tied it with silver string and added it to my topper.  I stamped the sentiment onto a tag from the Mini Tag Dies which I used 2 different ink colors to match the socks.  I attached the tag with a red heart brad and foam tape.

I had scraps left over from my embossed paper that I used the stencil on, so I used it for my candy wrappers using the Candy wrap Dies.  I added another colored cactus to the center of the wrapper for fun.  I then made another candy wrapper leaving it with just the hearts showing.   I hope you like what I made.  Thank you for stopping by!
