Bleeding Hearts – With Valentine’s Day just around the corner and fun little projects needing to be made, this theme was selected with Valentines in mind; however, your project need NOT be a Valentine — whatever you need works. Our Bleeding Hearts challenges calls for us to use the color RED and a HEART in our project. That’s it!!! Oh, and I’m always open to a VERY liberal interpretation – LOL!!! Just have fun!

And I made a Valentine trio for today:
As you can see, I kept it super simple — just some quick little projects suitable for treats and/or mass producing — super easy! My inspiration for this project came from the cute sentiments in a set called Loving Thoughts by JustRite Stampers. I used three of the six sentiments contained in the set. And I could NOT resist putting some chocolate kisses into a bucket.
I picked this bucket up from Wal-Mart. I added the white scrollies to it (a Cuttlebug die cut, run through the Xyron X to make them sticky-backed). It’s hard to tell with all the ribbon, but the sentiment is mounted onto layered hearts cut and embossed with my Heart Nestibilities by Spellbinders. The Gingham is 1.5” wide, by May Arts.
I love making these little cello treat bags — great for school treats. Again, so simple — the top is just stapled onto the bag (under the red panel so you can’t see the staples). Again, a similar heart/sentiment/ribbon treatment – just using a different sentiment from Loving Thoughts.
And lasty is my simple little Valentine card — fun! The card base is cut 4.25″ square. The heart is mounted on dimensionals and extends about 1″ beyond the card edge, making it the perfect size to fit into a standard A2 sized envelope. These would be super easy and quick to mass produce for school exchanges or even for your lady friends. Our group of friends used to have simple card swaps all the time, but we haven’t in years. Gosh, I miss those!!!
This is a visual of Loving Thoughts. The 4 rounds sentiments fit the 1 5/8″ Round Wood Stamper, and they also fit into the 2″ Round Wood Stamper, as do all 1 5/8″ round stamps. There are 2 rectangular/square stamps in this set that are made to fit in the 2″ Square Stampers — LOVE those. All 6 stamps fit the 2″ Square Stampers. I’ve used them often already. Love this set. You can see a square sample here.
The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store carries the 1.5″ May Arts Gingham Ribbon used on today’s project, as well as the Bow Easy, Petite Circle Nestabilities (4 pack) by Spellbinders, the Cuttlebug Vintage Die and VersaFine Onyx Black Ink.
