Taylored Expressions January Release Day: My Punny Valentine and Love Makes the World Go Round

Hi Everyone!

Today is release day at Taylored Expressions - WOOHOO!!! This is such an amazing release with so many awesome new dies and stamps! For today's release I have two projects to share - the first one uses the new stamp set called Punny Valentines - which is perfect to use create treats and favors to give as class room treats or favors for all your sweet Valentines!

I created a little popcorn treat set using this sweet stamp set - complete with little tags using the new Tag Stacklets 2 for little popcorn treatlets :) 

I LOVE making popcorn at home - its one of our favorite treats! I have a popcorn maker - but I prefer making popcorn the old-fashioned way - on a stove and then slathering adding a little bit of butter! I stamped the popcorn image and popped it up on the tag and then stamped the sentiment: "You make my heart pop" underneath the image and then added a large eyelet to string the ribbon through for the popcorn treat :)

Here is a closer peek at the tags - I colored them with copics and then added some oragne and yellow stickles to the popcorn or a little extra shine!

Here are the popcorn tags adhered to the popcorn treats - I also enjoyed making this project immensely because I was eating popcorn the whole time making it :) YUM!

Here is a pic of just the corn - so much fun to create this - I added the heart from the Square Block Cutting Plate and then covered it with some glitter and white gel pen :

Here is a close up the card - I loved loved loveddddd (did I say loved?!) making this card! Especially covering the popcorn in glitter :)

For my second project, I created a fun little card using the new stamp set: Love Makes the World Go Round and in honor of the name of the stamp set of making the world go round - I decided to make a round card - so fun and quick and easy - just stamp color and ribbonize!

I added some liquid pearls to the circular edges and then layered it over some nesties and then edged it with some stickles on the inside :)

Here is a close up of the inside - with the stamped sentiment - "Love Makes the World Go Round" and then glittered one of the hearts from the Square Block Cutting Plate and added it to the side:
