Gingham, Dots, and Hearts, Oh My!

Now that Christmas 2008 is past and I contemplate restoring our home to pre-holiday decor, my hands are busy creating for the new year. Here are some sneak peeks of Valentine goodies coming to Catnip Studio Too at Lollishops!
The flocked, floral paper shown above in blue, and below in red and pink, adds a touch of cottage elegance to the gift tags. Fresh, and retro, all at once! I especially enjoyed combining the black and white gingham ribbon and black ink dots for some contrast.
The tags above display rich, neutral shades of cream, tea, and soft black in cardstock and scrapbook papers. Shorthand script and old parchment images add a touch of the mysterious - a secret romance, perhaps?
The gorgeous taupes with cream and pale blue brocade papers above suggest a bridal theme, perfectly complimented by cream floral jacquard ribbon.
Embossed and glittered vines twine sweetly across the cardstock hearts above, and eggshell yellow acetate ribbon compliments the coral pinks, and brings out the matching yellows.
Lastly, a sweet pink posey decoupage ornament for Spring, sporting an opal glitter finish (for a subtle, rich glow hard to capture on camera) and a metallic pink-fading-to-gold ribbon attached to gold toned findings.
