Be My Valentine

Good morning and welcome to Nonna's Craft Corner!
I hope your day is off to a great start.  I'm trying desperately to clear out my Craft Corner so that I can paint my room....yuck....what was I thinking?  It started out as "I'm just going to better organize my stamps" into "lets just do the whole stinkin' room"!  I now have stuff scattered in 3 rooms as I try to make room to begin painting while still leaving myself room to work.  Again...what was I thinking??  This is one of those projects that I see taking months to complete.  Wish me luck...please!

Anyway, after clearing a whole shelving unit, I rewarded myself with a bit of stamping time (works for me and has less calories than chocolate time).   I have been wanting to play with my new toys from the latest Jaded Blossom Release and here's what I came up with.....

I started with the new "Vertical Nugget Card" from SVG Cutting Files.
Then I got busy with lots of fun products from Jaded Blossom!  I used the following stamp sets and metal dies from JB:
* Valentine Treat Tag Stamp
* Treat Tag Die
* Valentine Wraps Stamp Set
* Candy Wrap Dies
* Valentine Dies

Aren't those candy wrappers wonderful ♥

I dressed up the inside of my card with cuts from the Valentine Dies

I didn't have ribbon in the color that I needed, so, I colored some white seam binding with a Copic Marker...ta...dah....the perfect shade of blue!  I also used a Copic to color a bit of white twine to create the gray I needed for my card.

I'm planning on entering this sweet Valentine card into the current challenge "Valentine's Day Theme" going on over at Jaded Blossom.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I always appreciate your visits and sweet comments!  If you don't hear from me for a couple of days - send HELP - I may be lost in my own Craft Corner as I try to get this mess into some sort of order...lol!   Have a great day and I'll (hopefully) be seeing you soon....

Until next time,
