TE Sneak Peeks: From the Heart

Hi All!

So my plans to stay away from the Halloween candy didn't go so well. Those 3 Musketeers candy bars are just too difficult to resist (but so yummy)! Happily making cards distracts me from the candy bars sitting in the kitchen... and that brings me to the sneak peeks for today!

For my first project today I have a card I made using the SFYTT from this weekend, some yummy designer paper (not the same yummy as candy but close) and the fun new From the Heart stamp set! This set was designed with gift tags in mind and has a matching die.

Here's a closeup. The brown gingham fabric tape is delightful and I added a bit of glitter to the ball of yarn with a red Copic Spica pen.

I also made a tag that can be used to decorate a gift package. I have plans to knit a scarf or two for Christmas so this tag will be the perfect accent! :)

I used more of the gingham fabric tape and some lovely pink baker's twine. After assembling the tag I added a tag backer made out of Chococlate Chip cardstock to cover up all the odds and ends (back of the eyelet, ends of the twine...).

So what do you think? Want to see more samples using all of the fun images and sentiments from the sets? If so, check out the Bakers' Dozen and friends:
