Movin' On To Valentine's

Well, I guess now that today is Epiphany, it's time to move on from making Christmas items. I hate it when the season ends, but time always seems to move too quickly. That's just life!

So, I have put away my Christmas stamp sets (for now) and am movin' on to Valentines!

Stampin' Up! has come out with a really cute new stamp set called "Love You Much". It is available in a special bundle pack which includes a great co-ordinating 3 heart punch and a pack of designer series paper. I used these items to make 3 cards: a standard sized card; and long narrow card; and a little card made to put a tea bag or a Ghirardelli square chocolate into.

Here is a list of items I used to make these cards:
Love Birds card~
Very Vanilla and Close To Cocoa SU! Card Stock
Candy Lane SU! Designer Series Paper
SU! Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon
SU! Light Pink 1/4" grosgrain ribbon
3- heart punch
X-Mas Red Stickles
Black Staz-On ink

Hugs & Kisses card~
Close To Cocoa and Very Vanilla SU! Card Stock
Candy Lane SU! DSP
SU! Scallop Circle Punch
SU! Light Pink 1/4" grosgrain ribbon
X-Mas Red and Cotton Candy Stickles
Black Staz-On ink

Friend To Friend Candy Holder Card~
Riding Hood Red SU! Card Stock and Very Vanilla Card Stock
Candy Lane SU! DSP
SU! 3-heart punch
SU! scallop circle punch
X-Mas Red and Cotton Candy Stickles
Black Staz-On ink
Versa-Mark and SU! black embossing powder

I hope you like these Valentines. They were really fun to make. I often CASE cards, but this time I made these before I even looked at any examples. I wanted to create something without having to use other people's ideas. Thanks for stopping by to take a look!
