Three minute Mixed Medley valentine

It's nearly the end of the road for the winter seasonal catalogue so if there are items you really want, please don't leave it too late to order! There really are some amazing goodies in there and one of my favourites is the hostess set Mixed Medley. It's one of those sets that's a bit of an all-rounder - I've made halloween and Christmas cards with it and it's brilliant for little tags like this one or this.

Today I used it to make a valentine for my regular Three Minute Thursday slot - come and see:

I stamped the leaf from Summer Silhouettes and added the word 'Valentine' using my stamp-a-majig to get it exactly where I wanted it.  I love the way the 'v' fits into the space between the leaf and the stem and had to dance round the room hooting for a bit! Then I added the stylised flower:

This beautiful heart frame from Mixed Medley fits the small scallop circle punch perfectly so it was really quick to stamp and punch out. The 'Be mine' stamp from the same set fits neatly in the centre and cuts out efficiently with the 3/4" circle punch. I layered it on using a dimensional for a bit of interest.

And talking about valentines, don't forget that Stampin' Up have commissioned an exclusive valentine set as part of its 25th anniversary. It costs just £9.95 and you get a Sealed with Love kit for free when you buy it. I think it would make a lovely valentine's gift for a girl and would make a change from chocolate or sweets. Get all the details here!

Stamps: Summer Silhouettes, Mixed Medley, Delightful Dozen (sentiment)
Ink: Lucky Limeade, Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple
