Kitchen Sink Valentines!

OK, I'll admit it... I'm somewhat anxious to receive my Valentine stamps from Kitchen Sink Stamps! Maria has designed some real beauties for this next release, and I was so tired of Christmas cards and I'm chomping-at-the-bit to start on Valentines. So I took out a few sets last night to see what I could combine with some Valentine papers and matching colors, and here's what I came up with! You didn't know there were Valentines hiding in your current Kitchen Sink Stamps, did you? How cool is that!

The heart on this card comes from Thanks With Style, and "hugs and kisses" is from Never a Loss 4 Words.

Cardstock: purples and reds (Bazzill), white (Georgia Pacific), designer paper (Crazy 4 U from Flair Designs); Inks: Warm Red (Clearsnap), Eggplant (Tsukineko), Almost Amethyst for sponging main image edges (Stampin' Up); Accessories: white organdy ribbon, photo corner punch, Real Red brads, paper piercing tool and template (Stampin' Up); clear embossing powder (Sparkle 'N Sprinkle).

This one also uses a heart in a swirl from Thanks with Style, and the sentiment from Never a Loss 4 Words. Also, there are XOXO's stamped down the right edge of the card, but the picture didn't pick it up at all! The XOXO's also are included in the Never a Loss 4 Words set.

Cardstock: red and pink (Bazzill), white (Georgia Pacific), designer paper (Crazy 4 U from Flair Designs); Ink: Warm Red (Clearsnap); Accessories: extra jumbo circle punch, super jumbo scalloped circle punch (Marvy), large oval punch, Real Red brads, Iridescent Ice embossing powder (Stampin' Up), red sparkle ribbon (source unknown)

This last one, I'm not as fond of. I think I just tried to hard with it (and was too tired!) Stamps sets are again Thanks with Style and Never a Loss 4 Words.

Cardstock: purple and red (Bazzill), white (Georgia Pacific), designer paper (Crazy 4 U from Flair Designs); Ink: eggplant (Tsukineko), Pretty in Pink (for sponging edges), white pigment ink (for chipboard accent) (Stampin' Up); Accessories: chipboard accent (Maya Road), Fire and Ice circle brads, ticket corner punch (Stampin' Up), clear embossing powder (Sparkle 'N Sprinkle)

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
