DeNami Valentine Blog Hop!

Hi! You’ve probably arrived from Ruza‘s blog, and now you’re visiting me (Suzanne)! Thanks for stopping by to see what I’ve created for this month’s DeNami Blog Hop!

My first project is a quick treat packaging idea:
I made a tag for each treat using the heart stamp from DeNami’s Sugar Cookies Trifles stamp set, stamping it once on kraft cardstock, then again on white cardstock in brown ink. I layered the white stamped image on the kraft image, and colored the “sprinkles” with a marker. 
The sentiment on each tag was stamped with watermark ink (from DeNami’s Love Sentiments Petit Fours set), then heat embossed with white embossing powder. I used an opaque white marker to create the border, adhered the heart to the tag, then adhered the red strip onto the kraft tag.
Then, I filled a paper cupcake wrapper with candy and placed it in a clear treat bag. The tag is then tied to the clear bag with a combination of red raffia and red/white twine.
Here’s a close-up of one of the bags:
My second project is a pencil topper. I stamped and colored DeNami Design’s Puppy Love Circle stamp, then used a metal die to cut out the image. If you have a coordinating circle or scalloped circle punch, that will work, too!
I rolled a 1/2″ strip of white cardstock around the top of the pencil, securing the end with adhesive. I rolled a glue dot onto the seam of the rolled strip, then adhered the stamped image. Finally, to strengthen the topper, I cut a 2 1/2″ long strip of white cardstock, rolled adhesive on the strip, then lined it up with the back of the topper and adhered it. The extra strip helps to keep the design from curling.
