On this tag, I used the Cricut to make the circle fan. I stamped the flowers as a background and used the Clementine paper and burlap to finish it off along with a button! 
Again, same concept except with black ink. I used one of these older accessories for the accent piece and the images stamped in the corners are from a recent Snow Flake stamp set. These simple little 3x3 cards will go great with a gift. 

  I just love this stamp set as a background. It gives it a "toile" look that I absolutely love!  I made this card for a make and take at our team meeting where we preview the upcoming three months of stamps. It was a hit with the team members! The key to getting this look it to stamp the images very close to each other almost as if you are interlocking pieces of a puzzle to each other. If you leave gaps, there will lots of white space and you will lose the look of toile.
Another black, white and red idea! It's never too early to get started on Christmas! This was my tag creation for a swap I did. I cut out trees on the cricut and simple stamped the main flower image over it. Distress the edges and you've got this amazing tree that really pops! Even though this is a Valentine's Day themed stamp, these images can work so well with other projects and holidays. 
Below is the images that come in this set:

Oddly enough I was not enthused with this stamp set when I first saw it, but since I signed up to design a card for the team meeting make and take, it forced me to really play with it and I actually LOVE this stamp set so much now! 

Thanks so much for visiting - Now head on over to Helen's Blog to see her amazing creations!
