Really . . . Last Valentine-y Project . . . I Promise!

I forgot that I wanted to share one last Valentine's Day-type of project with you!! I made this fun Valentine's "LOVE" banner for Spellbinder's booth for CHA (so many of you have maybe seen it in person??) The only sad thing is, all of the art from the booth got packed up and shipped to Phoenix (to the "home office" of SB), so it's not actually hanging in my house for Valentine's Day! Sad . . . (you will really want to click on the photo so you can see the details better!)

Anywho . . . this is a parade of many Spellbinders dies. The greatest thing about it, though, is that it was QUICK and EASY! I used the new Inverted Scalloped Circles, which I absolutely ADORE!! Don't you think the "beaded" effect you get when you pair the inverted scallops with the classic scallops is DA BOMB?? I know this is going to become a favorite of mine, for sure!! No worries, my friends, as you should be able to get your hands on these in a couple of weeks (insert BIG HAPPY SMILEY right here!!)

Here is a close-up of the details on the letter "E". I love how crisp the emboss is when you use foil. It looks perfect every time!! I actually recycled some foil wrapping paper that I got for Christmas, so that definitely makes this project "green" (don'tcha just love it when you can reuse something???).

Stamps: Times New Roman Font Stamps by JustRite, Kittie Kits Cause a Scene Stamps by Rubbernecker
Cardstock: DoubleMates Racy Raspberry (WorldWin), Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink: Basic Black, Bravo Burgundy
Accessories: Spellbinders Classic Scallop Circle - Large (S4-124), Classic Heart (S4-136), Large Inverted Scallop Circle (S4-194), Dahlia (S4-191) and Butterflies 2 (S3-146) dies, glue dots, pop-up glue dots, black/white polka dot grosgrain ribbon (Offray), black organza ribbon, foil wrapping paper

I hope you get to spend tomorrow with the one you love the most!! Happy Valentine's Day to all!
