You're the Bomb!

What could be better than a Punny Valentine? This new stamp set (only available through February 14th) is a great stamp set not only for Valentine's day but for birthdays and anniversaries and congratulations and general pick-me-up cards too!
The red lines around each stamp show the die size. As you can see, it's a good close fit and helps you get a great element for a card. You can pick this up in my webstore: through February 14th!

Here's my "bomb" card.
It features the bomb on the stitched fishtail die that was splashed across rather than sprayed directly on. Here's what I mean by splashed across. Lay the tag on the bottom of your spray box and then spray straight across at the back wall of your spray box and let the splash fall onto your tag rather than spraying straight at your tag. It gives just a touch of spray to your tag and I liked this version on the vellum cardstock tag. The die comes with the matching circle that goes around the hole that you punch out. Isn't that cute?! 

The bomb was popped up on the tag and the mini banner with the mini heart cut-out  was added to the side of the tag. Mono aqua is perfect for this step as it dries clear. I love the peek-a-boo heart cut out of it from the heart die trio and the heart along with some sweetheart sequins finishes off the look. I put the embellishments on with Tombow Mono Multi as that also dries clear and is great for paper as well as embellishments. 

Blush cording went through the crop-a-dile punched hole and the circle popped around the opening. The sentiment was added and the card was spritzed across the top with the Stardust finishing spray. It's a great way to add a little shimmer to your cards and scrapbook pages. I did the same as before and spritzed above the card, shooting at the back of the spray box and let the spray fall onto the card.
Here's a close-up of that wonderful stitched tag die and the perfectly cut-out bomb. Isn't that fun?! To learn how to get a perfect cut every time from your matching stamps and dies, check out this blog post.
Since the outside had many layers and steps, I kept the inside simple and sweet. This A1 card is sure to brighten someone's day. :)

Have a wonderfully creative day!
