The Rubber Cafe DT cards

I know, I know ... it's too early for Valentine's Day cards you say, but that happens to be what The Rubber Cafe DT is working on at the moment so please bear with me ... hey who knows, I might even give you some great ideas !!!
The four images I'm working with are the Woman's Face, Lg. Lace Heart, Floral Spray and Happy Valentine's Day.
The card on the left was made using ONLY 3 of the 4 stamps mentioned above. The only thing added was the Darice red sheer ribbon, colored the flowers in the spray using Prisma pencils and double matted the main image using glossy black and red cardstock. How simple yet elegant is this card ... I'm very happy with it!!
The card on the right is also a pretty easy card to make. I used SU whisper white as the card base then stamped it using the Happy Valentine's Day sentiment stamp with SU real red ink to make my background. The panels #2 & #3 are simply red cardstock which I have outlined using my Creative Memories round tip black marker and wrapped Michaels polka-dot sheer ribbon around the panel #3. The hearts where stamped using Versafine Black, colored the ribbons with a ZIG real red marker and cut them out with my handy-dandy swivel craft knife. Using a Creative Memories fine tip black marker, I hand wrote the Forever Yours sentiment inside the hearts.
What fun cards to make (once I finally got my creative juices flowing again ...) and look, I'm WAY AHEAD of the game!!! Thanks for stopping by and please come back again ... I LOVE hearing from you all!!! Have an AWESOME day ...
