This is my very first blog hop and I am glad cupid came my way early.  As Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, most men prepare for this day with roses, chocolate, dinner, card and maybe an extra treat. I wanted to set the scene by creating a mist clipboard vase with roses, ribbons and a little bling. In addition, I saw this cute crush rose box on the SVGcuts.com forum and thought it would finish off my project. I absolutely love purple and white roses over red, so it it fit my project perfectly.

This is how I made the vase:
·         Cut 4 3x6 Trapezoid shape chipboard
·         Cut 1-3x3 Square shape chipboard
·         Sand the edges of the chipboard
·         Next-Mask/Ink the chipboard (I used Inkadinkado Spray Ink –colors Lilac, Rasberry and Royal Blue and Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz-Silver) to  your desired coating, bloat excessive ink and allow it to dry
·         BIA and 4-10 rings Zutter baby pink owire to bind the 4-trapezoid sides
·         Hot glue the square to the bottom of enclosed trapezoids
·         Decorate with embellishments, I use ACMOORE silk roses, MICHAELS Valentines purple/red/pink heart, ribbon and K&Company’s Elegant Swirl
The LOVE sign:
·         ACMOORE wood LOVE  sign
·         Mask/Ink the  sign(I used Inkadinkado Spray Ink –colors Lilac, Rasberry and Royal Blue and Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz-Silver) to  your desired coating, bloat excessive ink and allow it to dry
·         ACMOORE purple pop up hearts
Crush Heart Box:
·         SVGcuts Crush heart box file
·         Purple/Pink/White Cardstock
·         Mask/Ink the  center of the rose(I used Inkadinkado Spray Ink –colors Lilac, Rasberry and Royal Blue and Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz-Silver) to  your desired coating, bloat excessive ink and allow it to dry
·         Roses inked with Memento Lilac/Rosebud inks
