Welcome to a LOVEly blog hop with Clearsnap and Ann Butler Designs! Last month at the CHA trade show, we released a new collection of foam and rubber stamps with Ann Butler Designs, called Background Basics, to compliment her line of ColorBox Crafter's Inks and her existing faux quilting stamp lines. Today, our teams are sharing Valentine craft ideas you can make tonight for your special someone for Valentine's Day.
Hop along to each blog in the hop and leave a comment on each post. Then, use the Rafflectoper widget at the end of this post to win an assortment of Ann Butler Designs' new Background Basics stamps with Clearsnap!
My project is a quick and easy Valentine's Day candy themed craft the kids can help you with.
Using the new ColorBox Basic Backgrounds by Ann Butler in Diamonds and Picnic1, stamp each one on a sheet of white cardstock until the cardstock is covered. The Diamonds were stamped with ColorBox Crafter's Ink by Ann Butler in Canyon. These backgrounds are 3" foam stamps so little hands will be able to easily stamp the designs. Don't worry about complete coverage - just let the kids have fun.
Picnic1 was also stamped with ColorBox Crafter's Ink by Ann Butler in Canyon. Once dry, hearts were die cut from each sheet.
Die cut red scalloped hearts and add the stamped hearts on top. Assemble as many hearts as you'll need (2 for each treat). Stamp "Happy Valentine's Day" on white cardstock in Canyon Ink. Die cut the sentiment, add to a larger red die cut and place in the center of the hearts.
Now grab some individually wrapped candies and sandwich them between 2 hearts.
Here's a view of the hearts filled with assorted candies. I am sure the kids will have fun making these (and eating them as well)!
Please stop by everyone's blog to see their Valentine's Day projects.
