A trip to Target….

How many of you love Target?  I mean, really, what is there NOT to love about Target?  I am glad that it is not very close to my house!  I would spend way too many hours (or days!) combing through the merchandise and the clearance stuff.  I am completely attracted to those end-caps — you know them???  I know you do……..but you don’t buy that much stuff — I know you don’t, because there is always some left for me!  A note from CHARLES — he says “PLEASE buy more so my wife can not!”  Well, on with the story.  I do love Target and I especially love scrounging through the DOLLAR SPOT in search of the perfect items to embellish with Stampin’ Up! products.  I found several things today, but I didn’t purchase all of them.  I was trying to restrain from over-doing it.  I always think that I will use all the stuff I buy, and then I get busy with “life” and parenting and soccer games and babies and grocery shopping and laundry and…

So, here is one little tiny thing that I knew I would find time to make and it is pretty cute.  It was only $1 in the Dollar Spot………..in case you have not noticed, alot of the stuff in the DOLLAR SPOT is now $2.50.  Go figure!  They sucker us in the dollar spot and ask us to spend $2.50.  You better watch it — it is tricky  marketing at its finest!!!

I stamped the large heart image from Love You Much onto Whisper White Cardstock.  I used Blender Pens and colored it in using Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise and Summer Sun Ink.  I cut it out and mounted the heart onto a  piece of Pumpkin Pie Designer Series Prints.  I traced around the glass paperweight to get the perfect heart shape with the DSP.  Lastly, I used Crystal Effects to apply the stamped image to the paperweight.  Press gently in all areas to remove the air bubbles and create a smooth finish.  Do not use glue.   The Crystal Effects will give you a clear, glassy look, but glue will not.
