Divas Blog Hop - Whooo's Your Valentine

Hi Everyone - welcome to my crafty blog!  Whether you came directly from Traci Williams, or just landed here...Welcome! I am so happy you joined us and hopefully you will get some great crafty inspiration.  Feel free to loop back to the Damask Divas blog to see the entire list.

I've been so inspired by the Whooo's Your Valentine set by Close to My Heart.  I'm still thinking of holiday gifts along with lovely visions of what to do for thank you cards, and valentines gifts.  It will be here before we know it :)

For my crafty creation I decided to make cupcake socks. They are so cute, versatile, and easy.  My 7 year old daughter had fun helping too.  Using my Cricut machine we cut out cupcake/coffee holders as cups and filled them with snazzy socks, treat tubes, and decorated with the Whooo's Your Valentine Stamp Set.  Here is the complete list:
  • My Acrylix Whooo's Your Valentine Stamp Set (D-size) (Product #D1548)
  • Cricut Artiste Cartridge (Product# Z1790)
  • Blush cardstock sheet
  • Fuzzy socks (I actually found mine at the local dollar store)
  • HollyHock Inks Stamp Pad (Product Z2128)
  • Slate Inks Stamp Pad (Product Z2173)
Valentine CupCake

To make this I used the Cricut Artiste cutout from page 66, and then stamped the bottom edge with the square hearts stamp in the Whooo's Your Valentine Stamp set with Slate.  Roll up the sock and stick inside with one of the candy tube that comes with the kit (I filled with skittles, because they are my favorite...but you could use any candy you like).

The tag at the top is stamped with the same stamp to match the bottom but in Holy Hock Ink.  Overlay two hearts, the biggest is about 2" high and also cut from the Cricut Artiste cartridge.  Then finished with a small heart stamp in Slate.

 I hope you had as much fun learning about my cupcake sock creations as I had making them!  I can't wait to give them out for Valentines Day.  Next stop on this hop is Roberta Hupp.
Thanks for reading!
