Papertrey Ink January 2015 Release Wrap up...
With All My Heart Revisited...

Sparkle & Shine Valentines...


Happy Friday!  We are plugging our way through January...February is fast approaching!  Do you have your Valentines ready?  Valentine's Day is a great day for all things sparkly and shiny, don't you think?  I pulled out my Sparkle & Shine stamps and dies and put together a few ideas for you for quick and easy Valentine treats.  There are lots of little things you can wrap up that fit with the whole sparkle & shine theme...glitter glue, glow sticks, sparkling drinks, lip gloss...etc, etc!  Let me show you what I came up with...

First off are some fun glitter glue treats.  My girls love glitter glue, so they were all over these!  I started off with the Tasting Tag die, which is so great for little treats like this...makes it so easy to just tie them to the tag. 


I stamped the "hey valentine" using the Love You To Pieces Additions set, then stamped the "you ad a little sparkle to my life" using the Sparkle & Shine set.  I stamped some of the sparkles from that same set with gold ink.  The black baker's twine adds a fun pop. 


Next are some little lip gloss treats.  I started with some plain tubes of lip gloss/lip balm...I just got the plain jane ones from the dollar store and decked them out with some cardstock gold-stamped sparkles from the Sparkle & Shine set and a bit of gold glitter cardstock around the lid.   


For the base of the tag I used the Tasting Tag die once again.  This time I started with a Raspberry Fizz base and layered a partial tag over the top, diecut from white cardstock.  The sentiments were stamped with the Sparkle & Shine set and the "valentine" from the Love You to Pieces Additions set.


Next is a kid favorite...glow sticks!  I started off with the Limitless Layers: Hearts dies as my base.  I used the Paint Brush Holder die that was included in the Make It Market: You're a Masterpiece kit (the kit is sold out and no longer available...sorry!) to diecut the holes/slits to hold the glow stick.  A word of caution though - these glow sticks seemed a little smaller than the ones the kids normally get, but it was all they had at the store, so I'm not completely sure if regular glow sticks are a little thicker?  These were a pretty tight fit for the Paint Brush Holder die, so if regular ones are larger they may not fit.  Just a head's up!  I layered the word "shine" diecut from some pink glitter paper over the top.  The "it's your time to" sentiment was stamped using the Sparkle & Shine set, and the "valentine" was stamped using the Simple Valentine set.


And last but not least, I used the Wine Bottle Tag die to decorate a bottle of sparkling ICE water.  You could use this same idea for a bottle of another variety of sparkling drink for your grown-up Valentine.  :-) I used the same stamp sets again - Sparkle & Shine, and Love You To Pieces for the "valentine" sentiment.


This time I diecut the word "sparkle" from gold glitter cardstock. I added some diecut hearts to the bottom, cut with the Heart Prints dies using gold glitter and Berry Sorbet cardstocks.  


Well, that brings me to the end of my Sparkle & Shine Valentine projects.  (hey, did you notice that rhymes?)  All supplies are linked in the thumbnails below.  I hope you're inspired to create something shiny for your favorite valentine!  Have a great weekend!
