Love Me card set

Hey there, everyone!!  So, I am light nighting it...and just finished taking some images of this cute Love Me card set!  I used up a bunch of my scraps and a few more full sheets of my 6x6 Love Me pad from My Mind's Eye, and used up the majority of the fun matching diecuts as well!

I did this card set for Papertrey Ink's 5th Anniversary Day 7 challenge...to use hearts on your project.  As you will see on all 4 cards...they all have hearts in some shape or form!!  I also used the sketches from the previous day's PTI post, which I was unable to get to at that time.  Here is the first card:
"Happily Ever After" supplies:
Cardstock/Stamps/Buttons/Felt/Dies: Papertrey Ink (Love Lives Here set)
Paper/Diecuts: My Mind's Eye (Love Me 6x6 paper pad)
Doily: Royal Lace
Ink: Tsukineko (Versafine: onyx black)
Twine: May Arts
Pearls: Michael's brand
Pinking Shears: Fiskars
Sewing Machine: Brother

 Instructions:  Make card from vintage cream cardstock.  Cut grey doily paper slightly smaller, and adhere to the card front.  Layer a heart doily to the right side.  Cut a banner edge to a block of love paper, and adhere to the middle.  Fussy cut a banner, and adhere it to the upper left corner.  Zig-zag stitch along the fussy cut banner, and the right side of the love paper block.  Stamp the sentiment across the top of the hearts.  Diecut the circle & heart from vintage cream cardstock and pink felt.  Stamp the inside of the circle, adhere the felt to the center and then adhere in place of the "O" in LOVE.  Thread three buttons with twine, and adhere below the stamped sentiment.  Accent with pearls to finish.

-CropStop #57- wedding/anniversary
-Daring Cardmakers challenge- hearts & doilies

My next card is all about sending sweet love notes and letters!  I loved this cute little mailbox diecut from MME, and it matched perfectly with these PTI stamps!

Paper/Diecuts: My Mind's Eye (Love Me 6x6 paper pad)

Instructions:  Make card from vintage cream cardstock.  Cut love paper slightly smaller, and adhere to the front.  Cut a block of striped paper, add a pinked edge to the top of it and adhere to the middle.  Stitch along the top of the striped paper.  Stamp the letters to vintage cream cardstock, color the top letter, and then cut out.  Cut a line in the top of the diecut mailbox, then adhere the stamped letters into it.  Diecut a tag from vintage cream cardstock, then stamp the sentiment to it.  Wrap twine around the stamped letters, adhere the tag to the twine, then top with a twine bow.  Add a blue jewel to the bow, and a red heart jewel to the center.  Adhere the entire mailbox to the card front.  Add the honeycomb border to the bottom of the mailbox, and stamp the two teeny sentiments to it.  Accent the lower right corner of the striped paper with jewels to finish.
