Vintage Valentine Samples, Tutorial, More Stamp Sample Idea Boards

Hi Everyone,

I have a mix of fabulous samples to share, a Altered Frame Tutorial and more Stamp Sample Idea Boards.  Also, don't forget this Monday, Feb 3 is our February Linky Party and Design Team Love Challenge.

DT Member Darlene Pavlick made a pretty altered frame for her granddaughter and posted a tutorial for it on her Blog using paper from our Valentine Kit and the sleeping fairy from our Born to Fly Digital Stamp Set.

I love that the images are larger when we turn them into Digital Stamp Sets and that you can re-size and flip them in different directions.  I made up a Idea Board and although most of the samples were made with the old Clear Stamp Set before it sold out, you can print the fairies from this Digital Born to Fly Stamp Set and use them for the same ideas below.       To paper piece - simply -re-print a fairy/fairies again on pattern or color paper and cut out wings and outfit(s).

DT Member Kathy Klement made this sweet Valentine tag and she made the pocket holder from an empty toilet paper holder and just stitched across the bottom. Kathy used our Valentine Stickers (but sadly we just sold out of them) but have Love Mail Scraps.

Here are 2 more adorable    vintage valentines by Kitika from Russia that she made last year using our Valentine Kit

DT Member Michele Kovack created this beautiful card with a shadow box effect and the flower is from our Flower Garden Digital Stamp Set Download.

Here's an Idea Sample Board using our Fairlyland Stamps, now a Digital Stamp Set Download . All of these samples can be printed and colored like the original stamps - except you can't stamp on clay (like the necklace) but you can decoupage on any flat base for a pendant or pin.

Also a sample Idea Board for Sew Special, now a Digital Download and designs are larger and easier to color!
We Do have Down on the Farm CLEAR Stamps left and also Farm Chicks Clear Stamp Sets on sale for $12.50 each as I had placed a huge order just before my stamp manufacture moved and I quit placing orders.

There is also some Seasonal Friends Clear Art Stamp Sets left and you can see some great samples on the board below using faux snow, Fun Flock, glitter and a cool Stamped Faux Tile Tutorial by DT Member Michele Kovack.

Darlene Pavlick also made this pretty baby card for a neighbor who is expecting a baby girl using images and the mini stamp set from our Baby Girl Postcard Kit. You get 3 of all 4 large images plus a bunch of the smaller ones and could make a great banner for a shower and baby's room.
