Stealing My Heart

So my latest obsession is making Valentine tags.  Every time I think I’m going to stop, I find a great  image or read about a great technique and away I go again, making another tag.  But it’s a good thing, because I want to have plenty of them to decorate my cabinet at work.

It’s hard to tell from the photo, but I added a dot of diamond dust Stickles to each of the centers of the little flowers on the heart.  The swirls are made with black diamond Stickles.

The next one is my favorite so far.  It was simple enough to do; an image, some wide ribbon & lace trim, paper flowers and lots of bling.  I highlighted the flowers making up the heart with Stickles, but they don’t show up so well either.  The embellishment at the top is made of two Tim Holtz eye pins filled with Christmas red Stickles.

I made the next one very simple.  The background is a flourish stamped with VersaMark and then rubbed with chalk (one of my favorite ways to make a background) and the image is from Artchix Studio.  I made the flower from crepe paper using a hole punch to create the petals, then edging them with baby pink Stickles.  The words are from a book of vellum love quotes; I glued down just the top edge and then disguised it with a strip of self-adhesive paper ribbon colored with worn lipstick Distress ink.

And now I’m off to make more…I just found a free download of vintage Valentine images!

    Oh I love your Valentine tags. My fave is the bottom one and I love how you made the flowers from crepe and a hole punch. Brilliant!

    Hi Lisa, love all of your valentines tags! I see you’re planning to enter Helga’s Valentine swap – maybe we’ll be lucky enough to get one of each others this time!

    Also, big kudos on finishing your sketchbook. I finally got mine done on the day of the first deadline, but I was happy to have a couple extra days to make a pretty envelope for it.

    I hope the project is still coming to Seattle – it looks like it is in one spot, and then it isn’t mentioned in another. I would love to see the tour, and that’s as close as it would get for me (would be a great excuse to visit Seattle also, which I haven’t done in way too long).


    Cindy 🙂
