It's beginning to look a lot like...Valentine's Day?!

Hi, friends!  Yes.  I know.  It's not even Thanksgiving.  Yes.  I know.  Christmas is over a month away.  Yep...but as crafters, I know we can all agree, that we have to start holiday crafting EARLY.  So, I'm getting an early start on Valentine's Day with fun *NEW* dies from The Stamps of Life!  Check out my first Valentine for 2016!

I used the *NEW* Love/Hearts Dies for the main part on the left.  I decided to use glitter paper and patterned paper to keep things simple, yet pack a big punch.  I added some seam binding ribbon in a bow to tie it off.  

The base of the card was made with the Sizzix Hearts Step-Up Dies set, so MORE hearts were easily added to the steps.  Once again, I added some glitter paper for sparkle and shine, as well as some dies cut words for more of a concrete sentiment.

At the bottom, I added some Guava buttons, two with pink sunflower rhinestones in the centers.  I love the way all these colors and textures come together to create something super fun!

I am SUPER excited about these dies--they are going to make all my Valentines as easy as pie!  I hope you like my first take on Valentine's Day--please leave me a comment to let me know what you think! :)

I'm entering my card with these fabulous challenges~

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I hope you have some time to join in the fun with these fabulous challenges.  That's all for now--until next time, HUGS and happy stamping, all! :)
