Valentine's Day Love Notes with The Stampsmith

Hi Everyone,
I have  more Valentine's Day inspiration to share with you today.  I made four cards using the Love/heart image from the Love Notes Valentines full sheet from The Stampsmith.  This is such a versatile stamp set.  I use it all year round, not just at Valentine's.    I stamped the images on glossy white CS with Archival Ink (Ranger) for all the cards. I added some Tulle held in place by brads and a Sizzix die on the first card.  Color scheme: pink and brown.

The second cards has Stampin' Up DP for its background and more tulle.

Card number three has a deep blue background.  The light blue layer is die cut and dry embossed.  

I used a tan/gray card base on the last card.  And added a big bow made with wine colored ribbon.  

This is the inside of the last card.  The sentiment is from My Sentiments Exactly.
