Valentines Blog Hop

In the mood for some - hugs - well you will be by the time you finish our blog hop here at Paper Wings this evening. We have a lot of creative angels playing this month so just sit back and enjoy.
For my 1st valentine, I used a combination of 2 stamp sets Mini Occasions and I heart you, I scored 9 squares and a header then stamped the mini hearts in a tic-tac-toe fashion in Lamore Red, be my Valentine in the header and then pressed versamark over the entire image and use holigraphic embossing powder and heat set, mounted on our scarlet red then white. Now - drumroll please - my bow is sheer red with gold edges and I think it is almost perfect!!!
The second card uses my favorite combination of colors scarlet, white and our kraft cs. I cute the white frame using nestabilities label 1, ran a piece of scarlet using a cuttlebug embossing folder with hearts then a kraft circle punched using a cupcake punch from tonic, poped a red punched heart on top of the cupcake bounted on white. Sweets for my sweet seemed perfect for this card. And again a sheer bow imprinted with hearts. Continue this hop by going to:
