Spreading Some Valentine Love — Monday Montage #183

Welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop!  We are a group of stampers who love to share what we create with you, and all you have to do to follow along is click on the links at the bottom of each post.

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I thought I’d share some of the Valentine’s Day love I’m going to share with my family. Included in the care packages I’ll be sending my two college kiddos will be a card and of course some candy.

I love the adorable Snail Mail designer series paper! And when I saw how well it worked with the January Paper Pumpkin kit, I knew I wanted to create a card for my daughter with it. Her favorite color is yellow, so even though it isn’t a traditional color for Valentine’s Day, that is what I went with.

I sponged some Daffodil Delight ink onto the background and then stamped the “xoxo”s with the same ink color. That stamp is from the Paper Pumpkin kit, as is the sentiment. I cut out the heart, envelopes and snail from the Snail Mail dsp. And then I added some googly eyes to the snail for fun. Three little Resin Hearts Embellishments were added to give it some more pops of red and strengthen the Valentine’s theme.

The Paper Players has a fun theme challenge this week. I thought this card would fit in with the hearts part of the theme.

I have one kid who loves peanut M&Ms. I put some of them in a pillow box, which is now retired, but I still had a few on hand. Using the Always dies, I decorated a Cherry Cobbler heart to attach to the pillow box. The ribbon is from the January Paper Pumpkin kit, and I attached a little heart charm to it.

Another kid loves jelly beans, so I found some heart shaped jellies and put them in one of the Love You Always Treat Boxes. I wrapped one of the Flower & Field dsp sheets around it that I thought looked the most Valentine-y. This dsp is one of the current Sale-a-Bration offerings and is so pretty!

Here’s another treat box decorated with a different sheet of this dsp and uses the Heartfelt stamp set.
