Mini Gift Bag for Wedding - Valentine - Anniversary & Valentine Blog Candy Reminder

Hello blogging friends!  I have had so much fun reading all of your comments for the Valentine Blog Candy and what everyone likes to get or do on Valentine's Day with their special someone.  There is still time to leave a comment and get your name in for the Valentine Blog Candy!  
Click HERE for all of the details.  ♥

I also want to let everyone know that this past weekend Google Chrome detected some sort of malware on the  Stamping Top 50 site.  So if you tried to get on my blog during this time you would have seen a warning about the malware.  I want you to know that I have removed the Stamping Top 50 widget from my blog so my blog will remain a safe place.  Hopefully the problems on the Stamping Top 50 site will be resolved soon. 

Today, I have a fun mini gift bag that would be prefect for Valentine's Day, a wedding or and anniversary.

To start apply Rose Bud ink to the S5-159 Gold Labels Four die template on the raised areas and then cut/emboss the die cut shape using White Linen cardstock.  Applying the ink and then doing the die cutting/embossing will result in a true letterpress effect. 

Using the Swiss Dot Slipper cardstock and S5-175 A2 Locking Loops die template cut/emboss the die cut shape.  Then I used Rose Bud ink to stamp the frame and sentiment stamps from CR-04325 Antique Valentine Tags One from JustRite Papercraft on to the labels four die cut.  

  Using the Gold Mirro cardstock and S5-183 Gold Elements One die templates cut/emboss two flourish shapes.  Adhere the die cuts to the gift bag and use 3D Foam Squares on the Labels Four die cut to add some dimension.  To finish off the gift bag I added flowers, diamond stickles and pearls.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you are having a great weekend!  Here in MN we are in the middle of an ice storm so we are just staying in and keeping warm.

    Glad to hear you got the malware sorted out, and there was a few more sites, who had the same problem outthere too, all from the same site, so you were not the only one, I can tell.
