MIM #197: Homemade Foam Stickers

The Craftroom is geared up for Valentines, and
there's heart dies and heart stamps in neat little piles ready to be
discovered all over again! And some newbies too!

Laurie's challenge for MIM is to create stickers from our dies.

Happy die from Tipped Top, first ombred with Sweet Blush, Berry Sorbet & Hibiscus Burst,
before die cutting and affixed to foam.
I used the Tasting Tag to tie on my arrows from Cupid's Arrow (Tied with twine)
and stamped the bottom with Valentine's Day from Boutique Borders: Valentine.
The heart is die cut from Limitless Layers,  Hearts and run through an embossing folder.
The 10 cent stamp is from my stash.
Flowers and leaves cut from Stamp-A-Faire 40's set (love how they emboss as they cut!)
Cardstock: PTI & Crate Paper's Kiss, Kiss.
