SOS: Romance minus the hearts

Happy Valentine's Day!

This week, us girls at SOS are encouraging you to make a romantical card with no hearts!

Here's a tag for my sweetie:


  • 7 Gypsies tag inked with DIs and edged with a good ol' Sharpie
  • Scrap of double-embossed paper I made a month or two ago... it just lived on my desktop for a while...
  • Tim Holtz StampAnon Day of the Dead wedding couple inked with Ranger Archival in Jet Black and smooshed in DIs
  • The cute couple has some various Stickles accents as well as the oldest product on this project: some ancient Red Tinsel Stamp'n Stuff, applied with a Zig Emboss Writer. 
  • Ric rac... also been a staple in my craft-hoard forever
  • I typed the quote over a year ago.  For this project, I dipped the edges into the smooshing DIs
  • BTW, lots of black Ranger foam tape for the dimension... I've had this stuff for almost two years... just need to use it!
Yay!  Feel the love!  Enjoy the inspiration over at Shopping Our Stash this week... the team always impresses me, but it's another crafty-mind-blowing week!

I am also going to add this to the current Creative With Stamps challenge with my friend Monika... I meant to originally, but (nervous laughter) pretty much forgot to even finish my post!  I'm losing my memory!!!

  7. Well Mimi, this is one heck of a tag, my dear, it's totally reminiscent of November 2nd, The Day of the Dead in Mexico, where you can see sugar skeletons and skulls all dressed up and decorated fabulously, delicious to eat too. Hope you don't mind me sending you this link, you'll see why your awesome tag made me think of this pictures.
    It's a big day in Mexico, where our dearly departed are remembered with food and decorations.
    Thanks for the memories.
