Sweet Conversations – Be My Valentine

While looking for something to make quick and easy cards for Valentine’s Day, I came upon the Sweet Conversations Bundle by Stampin’ Up! The stamp set and dies are perfect for making cards that ask the special people in my life to “be my Valentine.” Two-step stamps of heart-shaped images remind me of the candy hearts with little messages on them that I ate as a kid. The Sweet Heart dies consist of different size hearts, a small envelope and tags! Just perfect for a variety of cards!
