I found a really cute Valentine pocket made from the Petal Cone Die on the Stampin' Connection website. I took a crack at it and it was a DUD! I spent a lot of time on it, too. It was heart shaped, it was red, it had silver embossing, it had a ruffly edge at the top - and I couldn't stand it. I am always so disappointed when I can see something in my head and I just can't make it work on paper. Sigh. Anyway, my friend had given me the Up, Up & Away set to see if I could make anything cute with it. Well, I may have succeeded! We made many of these for January stamp club.
Our club ladies loved these valentines and they had a blast sponging the night away. Do you have any other fun ideas using this die?
