I have a HUGE addiction to making my own VALENTINES. I always go to the store and look at the Valentine's cards but NEVER end up buying one. For years, I have always made my own "love notes" for my family. This year, I worked on my cards last night. I made ALL of my cards from stamps created with the TC STAMPMAKER.
I went yesterday and purchased these glass jars w/ lids. I got them from a local store- BIG LOTS. The small ones were $3.00 and the large was $5.00. I love that they are affordable yet great quality. They are heavy weight glass. I filled my jars with pink HEART sugar cookies (yes, I had ONE!), conversation hearts and LOVE taffy.
I stamped sentiments on Bazzill WHITE cardstock (scored and created all of my tags with 2 sheets of paper).
I stamped the I HEART U and cut the cardstock into a simple banner. I glued this directly to the jar with my FAVE Therm.o.web SUPERTAPE. *my fave adhesive for adhering to jars and various home decor items!!!!
I wanted to create a stamp with the XOXOXO... because I love this sentiment. I am going to give this glass jar with taffy to Tyler's teacher tomorrow! I hope she likes it.
Here is a view of three of my "love jars" that I created last night. I cannot tell you how much I love giving "hand created" gifts of love.
I did not stop there. I created cards for each of my kids and Ty. All of these stamps were created (in my kitchen Friday night!!!) with the Stampmaker. I even decided to make HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY cupcake toppers.
Oh, and there is MORE... Look at the adorable CANDY TUBES you can create yourself. Again, all of the images below were stamps that were created with the TC Stampmaker. You can do these yourself... Lara has included her directions on how to create these below-
Now, I have to admit, when the TC STAMPMAKER sold out on HSN- I knew that I needed to constantly show you that I create with and love the machine. So to SUPPORT you that purchased the machines (thank you!)- we are going to GIVE you a 8.5x11 FREE download of ALL of the stamps used. *expect more free TC downloads to help support YOU in your creative projects!!!!
Yes, all you need is to print out the PDF on your inkjet printer with the art film that comes in your kit. We created all the artwork and it's completely FREE- just print out (darkest black setting ink for the best quality) and then make your stamps!!!
Go to STAMPMAKER BLOG to download your 8.5 x 11 PDF of images. *thank you Lara for working with me to make this possible. *download will be available later today.
Have a WONDERFUL day of LOVE!!!!!!
