The Stamp Review Crew: Valentine Free For All!

Welcome to another Stamp Crew Review Blog Hop!  We share our take on a selected stamp set every first and third Monday.  This time we are hopping along with any current Valentine-oriented images and supplies.  I love Valentine's... we get to dress up chocolates (yay!), and it also gives us something to look forward to during the cold month of January.  If you are hopping around in a circle, you have just come from Wendy Weixler's blog.  She is just so creative!

With Wonderous Wreath carrying over from the Holiday Catalog, I had a Valentine's wreath in mind.

Nothing too terribly complicated.  Just a lot of layering, which is quick and easy with the Wonderous Wreath + framelits bundle.  I used Color Throwdown #323 color combo again, because I just love it, and Freshly Made Sketches #165 layout to help me out.  And I did add Crystal Effects to the Calypso Coral berries in the wreath.

Stamps: Wonderous Wreath, You Plus Me, Hardwood BG; Paper: Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla; Ink: Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Baked Brown Sugar; Accessories: Confetti Heart border punch, Crystal Effects, Wonderful Wreath framelits, Big Shot, Thread.

Now make sure you check out the next stop to see what beauties Ann Schach has put together for us.

What a darling wreath! I love the sprinkling of little hearts but what sets it off for me is thread in the background. Reminds me of a vine.

I love how you dressed this wreath up with the thread, sweet little hearts, and the thread! And the sentiment fits perfectly onto the wreath :)
