I absolutely LOVE these images and how they stamped, so I tried two different things.  First, I stamped in various colors for which I have marker sets.  I then cut them out to use on my frame.

But, because I love how this stamps all by iteslf, I chose to do a very simple card with two colors in purples!

I must admit, I’m not much for Valentine’s Day (Hubby and I are nice to each other all the time :) ), but I do love hearts and love :)    These stamps really inspired me and I love the colors in the paper pack.

 

 

 

I cut some hearts in various sizes about 1/4 inch more than the indicated size on the stamp using Artiste.  I stamped them all using Vineyard Berry and the three heart stamps.  I also chose a stamp to make the background on the first card in Hollyhock.

 

 

For these last two I just played with the stamps and ended up with two more fun cards!

I also decided I’d do soemthing a little different on the treat tubes so I created a ‘heart ‘like shape and turned them sideways!  I used the fabulous glitter paper to cut the hearts on the ends and the LOVE out of Artiste – it cut really easily even though it is quite thick!
