A Valentine Kiss

Who would have ever thought you love stamping so much that you would “KISS” your stamp.  For Valentine’s Day I’m bringing back an old technique presented by Stampin’ Up’s Emily Montoya.

I hope everyone gets to enjoy this sweet day with that special someone in your life.  If not, chocolate is a great substitute.  Happy Valentine’s!

Countless Sayings Photopolymer Stamp

With Valentine’s Day around the corner (say it isn’t so), this new photopolymer set is available January 3rd when the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog begins.  I can’t help but chuckle when I look at some of the words in this set.  Love stinks, your face stinks,  LOL.  How many funny sentiments can you make with this set?  On a sweet note, the beauty of love stamps can be used throughout the year, whether it’s used for an anniversary, wedding, valentine’s, etc.  The larger love stamps will look adorable on a scrapbook page.
