Heart Treat Baskets

Hi Everyone...I'm Sonya of Sonya's Paper Trail and I'm very honored to have been invited to the SP Stamps Blog as a guest designer.  My project today is perfect for Valentine's Day treats!  My project features "Mix 'n Match: Friends", which is an extremely versatile stamp set and a must have for every stamper's collection.  

Check out my project:

Sami's stamps are a perfect compliment to this heart basket!

I cut out these heart baskets and banner with my die cutting machine. Now....here's a tip for you.  Notice how that banner has a bit of a "wave" to it?  One of the great things about clear stamps is that they are bendable and can be formed to some extent to match your shapes--this banner is a wonderful example.
When I put the stamp on my block, I "bent" it just a bit.

  Here it is all inked up!
Can you see a subtle bend to the image? 


And here's what it looks like on that cute banner-it's not a drastic bend, but just enough that it adds a little "punch".  And I love that these words are two separate stamps--very easy to ink them up in different colors to match your project!


I made my little box into a basket by attaching some brads to a bit of ribbon.
I think these will make excellent treats for teachers and school employees, don't you!?!
Thanks again to Sami and her wonderful design team for inviting me to be a part of their blog for the day.  Have a super day!
Sami has a lovey dovey wedding layout today on the SP Blog so be sure to stop by and take a peek.
