Welcome my sweet friends! Today is one of those happy dance days! I have been given the honor to be a guest designer for The Shabby Tea Room all month long! Whoo Hoo! I am absolutely honored and excited as The Shabby Tea Room is one of my favorite challenges. So everyone Sunday night/Monday afternoon, I will be featuring some wonderful inspiration for you to get your creative juices flowing. I hope you head on over to all the other wonderful creations the design team created this week!

The fabulous ladies over at TSTR have asked us to create a card or project inspired by the photo below with a food theme and some yummy hearts.

 

So here is what I designed…

I first grabbed this tin box of my hubby’s. (He gives these away free with a jump drive inside for work) He looked at me funny when I asked him if I could use one of his boxes. LOL! Smile I then grabbed some crochet trim and some craft glue for around the edges of the top of my box. While the glue was drying, I then used some Kraft paper and My Mind’s Eye Blush paper. I painted this gorgeous little chipboard heart with White Acrylic paint and then distressed it. Sweet Valentine’s stamp set gave me my “Love” sentiment which I punched out using the small SU! oval punch. White Seam binding ribbon, a New! flower and some more lace finished off this perfect little tin for Valentine’s Day.

For my card today, I wanted to keep the same colors and papers for a gorgeous coordinating flow. I again used the Sweet Valentine’s stamp set. I also wanted to incorporate the beautiful inspiration photo, so used gingham ribbon, hearts, more new flowers, buttons and a few different pinks to decorate my card.
