A Valentine Sampler

It was our annual Stampin' Up! demonstrator team party this past Sunday.  We always get together for fun and a 3D Yankee swap.  I was strapped for time and ideas, so I made a wall sampler using several current "love" stamp sets and framelits.

The frame is 12" x 12" with a Real Red c/s mat that is also 12" x 12".  Next I attached a 10" x 10" Basic Black mat, followed by a 9 3//4" x 9 3/4" Whisper White c/s mat.  All squares are backed with 3" x 3" mats, and then I chose 4 papers, front and back, from the Sending Love DSP stack for 8 of the 9 squares.  The middle square is Whisper White c/s, also 2 3/4 x 2 3/4, that I stamped with the sentiment from the Sealed with Love stamp set.  I colored the little red heart in with a Real Red marker, but I meant to use one of the hearts from the Brights shapes embellishments (they were MIA after emptying my craft room last week so I had to improvise!).

P.S. The frame is from Michael's and is a shadow box frame.  I stamped and cut double the shapes when making my swap gift so I could keep one too -- I hope to switch out the samplers for different holidays so we'll see how my intentions go!!

Thanks for dropping by!!  The different stamp sets and framelits will all be listed in the supply list (I'll include both individual clear or wood mount stamps as well as individual framelits plus bundle info for all)  but feel free to leave me a comment!!  I'd love to hear what you think!!
