We added double sided Tear 'n Tape to a piece of Whisper White cardstock then flipped it over and sponged it in Pink Pirouette, Soft Sky and So Saffron before die cutting it. The adhesive on the back was perfect for placing our hearts on the Smokey Slate background with no liquid glue to ooze out!
We punched some Petite Petal flowers out from Shimmery White paper, shaped them a bit and added some Candy Dots to them, tied a bow with white seam binding, then stamped the background in Pink Pirouette.
We stamped the sentiment on Whisper White in Smokey Slate and punched it out with the Decorative Label Punch. It got popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Happy Valentine's Day to some loved people! 💝

How did I make the pretty card pictured above? Well, I stamped the images first in Tempting Turquoise, Sweet Sugarplum, Peekaboo Peach, So Saffron, Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron and Smokey Slate.
Then I took my small Affectionately Yours embossing folder and embossed the image not once, but three times, moving the folder each time to cover a new area.
The main image is layered on Tempting Turquoise and then on a card base of Daffodil Delight.
I hope you like it!
(Do you know, the flower Avant Garden flower petals make great palm tree tops?? They do! Turn them upside down and stamp them in Garden Green on a Crumb Cake palm tree trunk to see what I mean! )

Stampin' Up! is so good at coordinating their products and I love that. You can also get coordinating designer series paper (142778), cardstock (142780), and ribbon (142781) but you can of course use these items with other stamp sets and dies.
There is even a kit! (item no 143635) It's called Vertical Garden. I think the project it makes is very pretty and you never have to water it:
You can see how to assemble the kit on the How to Make Paper Flowers page. There's even a little video showing how to make the Vertical Garden.
If you would like to see close ups of these beautiful stamps and dies, you can use the codes I typed after each item to look them up at my SusanSalutations shop (click on 'Shop Now to pen the shop). Remember to check out the Clearance Rack and the Holiday Catalogue Carryover items too, You might find a bargain 😊
