To Say I Love You w/Stamp Simply

Are you ready for Valentine's Day?  I've been having FUN making some pretty Valentine's Day cards using the lovely products from Stamp Simply.  At Stamp Simply Clear Stamps, you'll be sure to find the perfect stamps with every sentiment and image to help you make beautiful cards for every occasion.  They have such a wide variety of high-quality stamps and dies.  I always enjoy using these wonderful products.  AND.....there's a SALE right now where you can SAVE 20% on all in-stock stamps and dies.  You won't want to miss that.
For this card, I used a black cardstock base and some patterned papers from the Carta Bella My Valentine 6x6 Paper Pad to create the base.  I ran a length of the lovely .5" Venice Katrina Ivory Lace down the side of my card to separate the two patterned papers.  I also tied on a length of Pink Baker's Twine, tied it in a knotted bow, tucked in some Floral Stamens, and topped it with a sweet Green Mulberry Flower, Red Mulberry Flower and Pink Mulberry Flower.
I used the Floral Cluster Spring Pansies Stamp Set to stamp the beautiful floral cluster and I colored it with my Copics.  I added some tiny floral prills to the centers of the flowers for added texture and color.  I also used the Floral Cluster Spring Pansies Stamp Set for the stamped sentiment (To Say I Love You).  I stamped it onto a strip that I cut using the wonderful Fishtail Banner Dies and I inked it just a bit.  I added more of the tiny floral prills to the sentiment strip.  I cut the Floral Cluster using the coordinating Floral Cluster & Sprigs Dies; which match will all four seasons/designs of the Floral Clusters.
You're always certain to find many wonderful stamps, sentiments, images, die-cuts, trims, flowers, embellishments and SO much more at Stamp Simply.  There's also loads of wonderful inspiration each day on the Stamp Simply Blog.  Be sure to stop by and check out all the wonderful things happening at Stamp Simply and let your creativity run wild.  You'll never be disappointed.  Thanks so much for stopping by today, friends.
I'm sharing my card here:

Inkspirational Challenge Blog - Mood Board/Love, Valentines, Etc. - I was inspired by the hearts, love theme and florals

Die-Cut-Divas Challenge Blog - Romantic/Love/Valentines - This is my second entry into this LOVEly challenge and I'm excited to play along.  I used die cuts from Stamp Simply as outlined above.

Inspiration Station Challenge Blog - Challenge #45 - "Learn from yesterday, Live for today, Hope for tomorrow". - Albert Einstein - I was inspired by the quote and by the soft lace curtains in the inspiration photo.  I love to play along here whenever I can.

Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge Blog - Challenge #194 - I got my tic-tac-toe three different ways by using several of the suggested elements.  I got one down the left-hand side w/Die-Cut, Heart and Patterned Paper.  I got another one diagonally w/Ribbon/Bow, Flowers and Patterned Paper; and I got a third one across the middle w/Heart, Flowers, Pink.  Lots of pretty things in this lovely inspiration.
I sure hope that you're having a blessed and creative week.  Where are you playing along?  If you need a really FUN challenge, please come join us at Word Art Wednesday.  Our sponsor this week is the wonderful Avery Elle Stamps.
