Card-a-Copia: Love and all that other love crap

Finally, February is upon us!  I'm so excited for Valentine's Day to come and go.  I enjoy making Valentine's Day cards, but that's pretty much the end of it.  I have a couple more designs to share before "the big day," so there's more to come!

This first card was started about a year ago.  I could never figure out how to finish it in a way that was pleasing to the eye.  Finally, I put on some ribbon and a tag that filled some of the empty space at the top of the card and, voila, it looked finished!  (Because this was started so long ago, I may not remember all the details about the card.)

Stamps:  "Who Loves You" digi (Tiddly Inks)
Paper:  card base (Georgia-Pacific), brown (Core'dinations), 
Ink:  Copics
Misc.:  nestabilities, ribbon (Michael's), baker's twine (Whisker Graphics), punch (Martha Stewart)

This next card is a no-stamping card.  I cut the circles and added them onto the card and the hearts I punched.  The belt is paper cut from leftover background paper.

Stamps:  none
Paper:  white card base (Georgia-Pacific), Purely Pomegranate (Stampin' Up!) and blue (Core'Dinations), Vintage Valentine "Valentine Strips" (Fancy Pants Designs)
Ink: Purely Pomegranate 
Misc.:  circle Nestabilities, doily die (MFT), heart punch (Stampin' Up!), heart buttons (Pebbles), buckle (CTMH), sponge

I used the altered doily approach again on this card.  I  like the "airiness" it gives to the image.  I also hand-cut the clouds and created the sentiment on the computer.  I'm entering his image into Stamp, Scrap, and Doodles "Have a Heart" Challenge.

Stamps: "High-Flyin' Mouse" digi (Rick St. Dennis)
Paper: Core'dinations
Ink: Copics
Misc.: MFT doily die, baker's twine (Whisker Graphics), heart brad (Making Memories)
