OSAT Blog Hop – All You Need is Love

Good Morning, Stampers!

Welcome to the February OSAT Blog Hop - 
All You Need is Love!

If you are following along on the hop, you are arriving from Pam's blog
Her projects are always so inspiring! If you are just starting out, you will
be guided at the end of this post to continue.

My first project is something I used to do as a kid. 
It's a fun project that wraps baker's twine dipped in equal parts
glue and water and then wrap around a balloon to dry.
Before I started though, I added candy kisses inside the ballon
before blowing it up. Then, when the balloon is popped, the 
candy stays inside the little ball! So fun!

Of course, "Sealed with a Kiss" is the perfect sentiment for
this! A little treat of hugs and kisses! 

My second project is a simple card that can
be used for a wedding, anniversay, birthday, etc.
Really, any event that involves LOVE!

I never realized how well the Mixed Borders stamp set
and the Bloomin' Hearts suite work perfectly together.
I love that Stampin' Up! had coordinating products - 
Makes it so easy to create!

Stamping and embossing with Versamark and clear 
embossing powder is a simple and subtle way to fill
empty space without taking away from the main
focal point of the card. I think it adds a touch of
elegance to the card, too!

Now,head over to Lori's blog to see what
she has to share with you!

Happie Stampin'!

I love your idea to put the candy inside the balloon first. I used to make easter eggs with string with my kids and daycare children for years. Will have to make some with my grandkids next. Super fun projects.
