Elzybells Challenge 12 - Valentines Treat

This fortnight the challenge over at Elzybells has been set by Elizabeth and it is to make a Valentines Treat/Gift. As you can see I have gone with the treat option but they are as a gift too ... well unless I eat them myself! I had to be fairly quick with this one as I have just been on night shifts. I bought some yummy heart marshmallows and champagne chocolates from M&S and decorated them.

The marshmallows were already in the lovely bag so I have tied it up with pink and white organza ribbon and added a tag. I have stamped the gorgeous newly released bear with heart and coloured him in with Copics, cut him out and added him to a Nestabilties scallop circle with 3D foam pads. The back of the tag reads "you have special place in my heart" using an elzybells message stamp but I forgot to take a photo of this!

For the chocolates I have popped them in a tin which has a strip of CS running around and I have stamped the heart from the S-moo-ches set around using VersaMark ink. The message on the top has been stamped then cut out using a Nestabilities label die and added with gem stones and 3D foam, the hearts have been stamped again this time using pink on white CS, cut out, glittered with my Spica pen and added to the tin with 3D foam pads too.

And here is a photo of them both together. Be sure to check out the amazing creations from the other DT members on the blog here and you can purchase the stamps here.
