Cute Valentine Cards

Hello everyone!  I was recently inspired by a video from Vicky Papaioannou where she created 10 cards using the card kit from Simon Says Stamp.  I decided to go back to my card kit from February and used the materials from that kit.  I created these three cards from the pattern paper and used one of the sentiment.  One thing I learned from the video from Vicky is to keep it simple and it is okay to use stickers, not everything have to be stamped.  I feel like I always am trying to do something different and the card had to be a long process for it to be a good card.   I finally gave myself the okay to chill out and appreciate it, even though the card took me only minutes to make.  I also used a heart dies set from Little B.  I love how they packaged their dies with a magnetic sheet and have embossing possibilities for their die cuts too.
 I used my My Favorite Things stitched rectangle die to cut the pattern paper to create a background.  Then I used the heart dies to cut hearts in pink and red and used Distress ink to add color to the edge.  I used the stamps from Winnie&Walter to stamp the sentiment on the pink heart.
One of them I used a rub-on from the February kit 's Crate Paper Kiss Kiss collection.  I've never used rub-ons before, but I love how easy it was.

I stamped the dogs and color them with Copic markers.  I used foam adhesive to placed the dogs onto the card after the hearts were adhered to the card.
