Well, I just couldn't restrain myself any longer -- I HAD to get my hands on the gorgeous Pink Paislee Cupid Collection!! And what better use than to make a valentine for my dear mama -- though the design is pretty generic!
Pink Paislee has done such a fabulous job coordinating their papers and embellishments, this project practically made itself! I started with a coaster from the Maya Road Tag Coaster Album, covered it in Cupid paper and sanded and inked the edges with Maya Road Pigment Inks in White and Brown. Then I chose one of the Cupid Fabric Tags, frayed the edges a little and adhered it to the coaster. Next I used the sizzix to cut hearts out of three coordinating Cupid paper patterns, layered them with pop tape, and used the Cupid Pressons as accents. These pressons (rubons) are fabulous and go on like butter. Some generic ribbon punctuates the bottom left corner and the top of the coaster. Then I spritzed the whole thing with Iridescent Pearl Maya Mist and lastly added the Cupid Brads -- it was a cinch with the cropadile! And the best thing is, I have plenty of paper and embellies left to make more valentines!!
