Gathering Inkspiration Stamp Studio Valentine's Day Party

We like to party!!

Yes, here at the Gathering Inkspiration Stamp Studio, we enjoy a good party!!

We had so much fun back in December at our Christmas Party that we (actually, Beth, Gwen and Sabina!) decided we ought to do another party!  These 3 fabulous gals planned it all!!  From the Make-n-Take treat to our Valentine bag to the food, they planned and prepped for it all!!

I am so grateful for their help, and I know everyone else that attended the party was, too!!

Here we all are.....
 What a great group of gals!!

Gwen took the picture this time so that I could pop in (where's waldo??)...

A peak at the treats.....  Yum!!

Beth made those cute cupcakes with the toppers on them 
(apparently, that was the main reason she bought the stamp set!)

Here's Gwen modeling our Valentine treat bag....

The gals making their projects.....

Beth was so proud of her cupcakes!!  
She should be - they were so cute - and fabulous, too!

Here's a closer look at our Make-n-Takes for the evening...

We each decorated a bag that we later put our Valentine Swaps in - we had so much fun exchanging our Valentine's with each other (just like we used to do when we were little!).  How cute!!

We made this beautiful card (designed by Sabina).  We put a strip of Basic Black Card stock on the top of our bag and adhered each end of the strip of card stock with Sticky Strip.  The card then hangs over the strip of card stock.  What a fabulous way to give a gift, and a card AND decorate the bag all at the same time!!

We embossed the front of our card with the Happy Heart Embossing Folder.

Next, we die-cut the small Real Red background hearts with our Heart Framelits.

Then, we made those cute bows with our Bow Builder Punch and Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack

Finally, we stamped "You Made My Day" from the And Many More Stamp Set and added it to our card.

Here's a peak at the treat we each made...

We filled a 4x6 Cello Bag with chocolate and then made this awesome tag (designed by Beth!).

We cut the top of our tag with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, stamped the tag with Crisp Cantalope ink and the "splotch" stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set and added some fringe to the bottom of the tag with our Fringe Scissors.

Next, we punched that cute heart with our Sweetheart Punch and added the arrow with our What's Up Punch (just cut the arrow in half and adhere behind the heart).
