It's All About Hearts!

Now I am thinking this will be my last Valentine's Day project, but I don't know!  Never have I made so many and not even sure why!  I thought I was done and then Inspiration Emporium posted about their monthly challenge, so I went over there to see what was happening!  "Put A Heart On It," is what was happening, so I thought to myself here goes another one chalked up to that little dude with a bow and arrow!  So Cupid struck me again with the love arrow!  We are also linking this up to Gingersnap Creations, "Words of Wisdom," because any sentence that has the word "Love" in it, surely is spoken in wisdom. 
For this tag I used both of Tim's Valentine stamp sets and his movers and shapers hearts, love those!!  I stamped the big "XO" with Versamark and clear embossing powder, which I am almost out of???????  After I heat set, I inked up the tag with Fired Brick, Black Soot and Vintage Photo.  Wiped off some of the excess ink from the embossed areas.  Then I stamped Tim's hearts in Fire Brick all over the tag.  I just love how subtle the background is with the hearts!!  Wiped this off.  Next I used that four letter word, "IRON" to remove the embossing.  My little Cupid was then stamped and I highlighted his bow with Spica Clear Glitter pen, cut a second Cupid, because someone does not have that die - yet!  I stamped the word defination on newsprint paper and then cut this from the movers and shapers and attached to cardstock.  This was inked with Fired Brick and shaded with Vintage Photo.  Added a couple of backing layers and that was that. 
I could not help, but to make one more shrinky dink, word stamp!  BTW, the original size of this is 5 1/4" by 4" and shrunk down to 1 3/4 x 2 1/4!   Now I have an excuse to make one more for the road!  If you did not see my post yesterday, using this word stamp and would like to, click here XOXO.

Hope whatever you do for Valentine's Day, that it is done with "Love."  Thank you so much for taking the time to visit!

And with all those instructions you didn't even mention the vegetable bag you used for the tie, or am I wrong there?

I love your background, Terry... and I think that's really the only time one should have to use an iron. BTW someone on the Ranger yahoo group posted yesterday she has 60 pounds of embossing powder in her basement... so if you're really running low, maybe a quick flight over would help!
