Valentine Card

Valenines day is just around the corner, I came across these ideas and thought they rocked. All supplies SU unless noted.

Base of card is pretty in pink, all the DSP is from the new SU mini is Sending Love. Other colours I used are real red, very vanilla, and chocolate chip.
I used both tag punches, and the 3 trio flower punch

Valentine Tic Tac Toe

I bought some of these metal tins from the SU! clearance rack, didn't know what to do with them so I looked on Splitcoaststampers. It's not an idea that I came up with, but thought that it rocked, making a tic tac toe board that can travel with you, someone also made up a matching game to, see end of post for these examples.
All supplies Stampin Up! unless noted.
The tic tac toe DSP is real red from a level 1 pack from a couple years ago, I used my Xyron to make it all sticky and adherred, then drew a grid.
The DSP used on the outside is from We R Memory Keepers and it's called "Darling", again adhered it to the tin with the Xyron, then sanded down the edges, put on a coat of Modge Podge
I used my Crop a dile to punch holes in the tin, and threaded through some real red grosgrain ribbon.
My game pieces are real red & regal rose, I used the new stamp set, i {Heart} Hearts, and the punch heart to heart, laminated them, and then glued on a piece of magnet. Of course I made a Spiderman one too
