Will you be my Valentine?

Hi, Jess here!

Vintage Valentine's are the best. The have awesome graphics and super sweet sentiments.  I used an image from the With My Love sheet.  I blew this one image up and printed it on a heavy card stock. (OR YOU CAN ORDER YOURS PRINTED) Once it was fussy cut, I used a very fine silver glitter to pick up some highlights. (WINK OF STELLA)

I had some small heart stickers with sentiments (OR YOU CAN ORDER STICKERS)   that matched this little guy perfectly.  I used a memo pin and glued them together using my hot glue gun.  (or you can use a sturdy cocktail pick)

 I poked the pin through the card stock so he appears to be holding the pin.

I made a GIANT crepe paper flower.  I used the same technique is showed you how to do here.

I needed to make my guy pop off the flower, so in came the mountain of foam tape.  I cut a ton of tape and just kept stacking it until I had enough to reach the top of the flower.  I attached my guy using a bit of hot glue to keep him stable.
Now the flower is made on a giant glue dot, to adhere the flower to my bingo card I just used the glue dot.  Topped him off with a pearl stick pin.

This snazzy little guy is showing off with a BINGO card for more fun.  (SEE OUR VINTAGE BINGO CARDS HERE)

I hope you enjoyed and have a Happy Valentines!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
