With All My Heart

Welcome back, folks!

It's the second design team group post of Papertrey Ink's December release and it's such a cute one :)
{You'll find all of today's new products available for purchase on December 15th.}

December at PTI means one thing and one thing only... that's right...
Valentine's Day, haha!

Here's what I came up with using the brand new With All My Heart...

For my first project, I went straight for a little Valentine's Day treat. 
Now... a Valentine's gift from that special someone is always, always welcome.  But getting a treat from a friend when you weren't expecting anything is super sweet... that's what I had in mind with this idea.  Something small and useful, but cute and non-sugary.
And, of course... I knew my girl friends would appreciate some cute packaging :)
A glassine bag and some washi tape always does the trick.
Love that you can see just enough of what's inside...

A little faux sticker seal stamped with a Honey Bees image finishes the outside off and also gives a hint as to what's inside...

Not gonna lie... this sweet heart image totally inspired this treat.

It was super easy to stamp the heart image and trim out just the "Be Mine" sentiment... and it's the perfect size to fit right on that tube of Burt's Bees :)  I reinked the same image in True Black, this time stamping it on a white cardstock heart cut with one of the new Limitless Layers Hearts dies.

A little striped washi tape (from Target) adds a bit of a twist and a tag made with the Tag Sale #5 die and a bit of Summer Sunrise paper gives it a little base to sit on.

I've got a few of these tucked away... waiting to hand off to some sweet friends :)

Next up... a clean and simple take on With All My Heart...

And there it went... the very last of my white embossing powder.
After more than 10 years of stamping with only a small number of real mishaps, I finally did it...
dumped the wrong embossing powder back into the wrong jar.

Good bye, clear embossing powder.
Good bye, white embossing powder.
Rest in peace.

I keep forgetting to order more but now I *must*... you know I can't go without it ;)

In the meantime, I eeked out the very last of what I had left to come up with this cheery card. 

When I heat emboss on clear cardstock I always receive a few questions about how to emboss on the  without it warping or how to attach the cardstock without the adhesive showing.  If you've struggled with those issues, this is the card for you :)

I started with a Raspberry Fizz card base, then trimmed a panel of Orange Zest to fit the front. Die cutting both layers at once (using the new Limitless Layers Heart collection) makes it easy to be able to line the panel up on the card.

The clear cardstock panel (heat embossed with that heart image) is adhered right in between the two panels, leaving the inside of the card clean.

Cool, right?

I added some tiny flags cut with the new Countdown Details dies and stamped with some of the tiny sentiments from With All My Heart for a sweet little touch...

Fun times, fun times!
And there's even more to be seen today with the rest of the design team...

Thanks for indulging me in my bright little Valentines... I always seem to struggle with the softer colors, so brights are the only way to do Valentine's Day for me :)
