TH February tag for Valentine

Today I finished my tag for
and for Valentine.
I used the stamps I won with
my November tag and waited
to get this one, for I already
had a fund idea on how to use them.

For instructions how I made the
tag please take a look
at the instructions on the
Here you see the finished tag.
I absolutely love the tip of making
a ribbon from washi paper.

I tried to use the techniques
as shown on Tim's blog with the things I have
and this is the result.

The lamp is doubled up, like
the queen card you see on the original tag.

The metal tag I do not have, so I used
some silver cardstock
and a sentiment I printed to
go with the light bulb.
Adding glossy accent on the top.

Here are also some other cards I made for Valentine:
using Tim Holtz embossing folder
and Michael Strong's mini cloisonné heart.

This card is for my dear DH
and the ticket for the movie
we are going to see.

Backround is done in the glimmer
Antiqued Wallpaper technique
described HERE.
