Be My Valentine & Cards

This year I am on the ball & made Valentine cards BEFORE Valentine's Day.

Shocking!! I know! Since I usually get inspired after the holiday to work on holiday stuff! What can I say?? Better late than never!!

I wanted to play around with some stamps since I buy them like crazy but don't use them as much as I should.

I took a heart from this stamp set & stamped it with embossing ink then used the Zing! embossing powders on them. Easy peasy!! The colors look so much better IRL though.

This is Gianna's card sine she likes pink.Did the same thing here (the pic came out slightly better) But this is Marissa's card...she likes red.Joe & I never give each other just 1 card for any occassion. (call us crazy!!) So this is just one of the cards he'll be getting from me. Did the same as above but used this Hero Arts stamp set.
For this card I used part of this stamp set to go along with this one. Aren't the monkeys cute? I didn't take a pic of the inside of the card but it says "I'm bananas about you!".
And yes I got a little lazy about cutting out the tails.... ;)
I got this cute stamp recently & purposely left it on my desk so I would use it for Valentine's day.
Also used these alpha stamps for the "F" is wonky I know...
