I wasn't sure how I would do this, so on a hunch, I dug through some retired DSP - bingo! This background sheet from Blackberry Beauty dazzled me! I decided it would be awesome to match it with our just retired Great Tidings, and gold heat-emboss my three wise men - love it! I did one each on Blackberry Bliss, Rich Razzleberry and Early Espresso, and in person they really pop! I tried to give them a neutral wash behind by floating a circle of vellum, too, great effect in person, sigh... At the last second, a few Gilded Gems finished it!

My fave Valentine's set of all time is STILL PS I Love You, from 2012. This heart stamp, made up of tiny hearts, is just so beautiful, and I have kept my Full Heart and Modern Labels punches just for this set, lol. I did three of these "hearts of hearts" in shades of pink, and layered everything over a sheet of our AB Simply Marbelous paper in Flirty Flamingo. A few extra black accents and it's set for hubby - my forever Valentine!
