Chocolate Valentine

Mmmmm! These chocolate strawberries look good enough to eat!  This delicious stamp set can be found in the new Occasions Mini Catalog and is available now.

I inked up the strawberry stamp with Real Red and Chocolate Chip (of course!) markers and stamped it three times.  Each strawberry is cut out and adhered with a dimensional over a 1-1/4" Whisper White circle on which the stem, inked with a Garden Green marker, was stamped.  I always use a glue dot to stick on a tied bow.  Those little circles of stickiness are great for something like this.  Just press the back of the bow right over the glue dot to lift it off the wax strip, and you won't have problems trying to get it off your fingers.
