Happy Valentines Day!

Since I don't really have any decorations for Valentine's Day I decided to make myself a cute little heart bouquet that I could display on my china cabinet. (click on photo for a better view)

The base is a terra cotta pot. First I painted the rim and about an inch down into the inside with white enamel paint. (No sense in doing the whole thing since I planned to cover the outside and fill the inside) After that was dry I adhered Berry Bliss DP to the outside using Mod Podge as my adhesive. I didn't do the best job at cutting my template, and it was a little off where the paper met the rim of the pot. No problem...I just covered it with some ribbon!

I embossed the heart from the Always set in white embossing powder and cut each one out. Then I glued them to lolly-pop sticks and tied on a bit of ribbon to each one. The bird was stamped in Pomegranate on Whisper White, cut out and then I embossed it with clear. Isn't he cute? I just love that little bird!

The hanging medallion was made by embossing the snowflake scallop image from So Many Scallops. The dotted edge of that stamp matches the dotted edge of the hearts in my bouquet almost perfectly. Then with varying sizes of circle punches I cut out circles from the Berry Bliss paper and layered them, with a clear rhinestone brad for the center.

I hope you are able to spend today with someone you love! Happy Valentine's Day!
