Love Blossoms - What to do when you have lots of dsp scraps

I was inspired by Connie C the other day...I had a bunch of scraps of the Love Blossoms dsp on my craft desk after making all the treats for my Bible Study ladies, so I made this card because I just love all the patterns in that paper!!  The greeting comes from the 'what I like about you' stamp set, only I purchased it in French as you can see:)  This card was made for a very special little in my life!!

Happy Valentine's Day to My Love

 I used the Going Global suite of products to create this valentine for my husband this year.  I luv the world map embossing folder and the images in the coordinating stampset.  I used the globe, the love banner, the big dipper all on this card & 2 more of the sentiments inside (see below:)  The card base was made of pool party card stock.

Treat Pouches for My Bible Study Ladies

Last week we concluded our Ladies Bible Study on the Armor of God, and for our big finale we all were to be bring an appetizer or treat to share.  These were the treats I brought...little pouches made out of Love Blossom dsp with a little scripture from Colossians on it that went with the theme of our study...'above all put on love'  or 'whatever you wear, put on love' :)  These each had lindt valentine chocolate in them:) The project came together quite quickly which was great since I had 30 to make:)

Also, below is a little coordinating bookmark I made for each lady...I made a few different versions as I didn't have enough of all one ribbon for them all...

Panda Bear Hugs

 My daughter's name is Amanda...we have called her Amanda-Panda since she was little, so the first thing I thought when I saw the new Bear Hugs stampset and coordinating framelits was to make them into panda bears.  This was my first attempt & it is my valentine card for my daughter this year:)

The card has lots of dimension as I stamped, watercolored and printed out Mama and Papa panda and baby panda, along with the hat, skirt & bow (which were stamped on the Love Blossom dsp)...and also the 'love you' heart and the bouquets...all come from the Bear Hugs bundle:)

I then cut with the deco labels framelits right through the matt and cardbase so my panda family could pop right through...and I used a few dimensionals to make mama  & papa bear hug our Amanda-panda:)
I grounded the images inside the card with a little watercoloring in mint macaron.  The card base was crumbcake.

...and this morning I made a quick treatpouch with the mini treatbag thinlets and some more of the Love Blossoms dsp, which I filled with some valentine lindt chocolates:)

Valentine Treat Pouch

This little treat pouch was made with the Love Blossoms DSP pack and the scallop square framelet.  It's the same idea as the sour cream container treatholders that so many make except the top is open (with chocolates spilling out).  I also used the bow builder punch to decorate the project...sweet!
