Valentines Post #3

OK, last 2 cards created for my little stamp make and take party!

This is my absolute favorite one!   This one came my way from Shirley Pumpkin.  What an awesome use of RED and a bit of grunge to make a boy-perfect card (well, I am sending this one to my MOM, so there you go)!

Black taffeta ribbon

Last, but certainly not least, is this cute card for the little girl in your life.Very sweet!  This design was inspired by SU demonstrator Leena Girsa.

More Valentine cards

Scrap-napped from SU demo Mary Brown.  This card could really have any wording (birthday, thank you, you're fantastic) but I am putting it here because I love the spring colors!  It also uses a couple great products from the Sale-A-Bration catalog that was just released (where you can pick one item for every $50 your spend in other SU products).  A great deal!

Fresh Vintage stamp set (SAB), Perfect Words stamp set (hostess set)
Whisper White, Calypso Coral, Poppy Parade, Lucky Limeade, Pool Party card stock
Luck Limeade sheer ribbon (SAB - set comes with Calypso Coral sheer ribbon and some cute brads too!)

Corner punch

This FANTASTIC card comes from SU demo Julie Marshall.  So pretty and a bit Victorian.   I love it!

-BTW, this was my 1st ever attempt with a stamp wheel.  I inherited them from my sister but didn't try it until now.  I turns out a very nice background!-
