Basic Grey Porcelain Card Kit

This past Saturday I picked up this card kit at my local scrapbooking store. Untrue to my character, I actually took it home and immediately started assembling. Normally it would lay around the house for several weeks before I took it out of the bag! I made 4 of the cards on Saturday and the remaining 4 on Sunday.
**No stamping on these cards. Everything that looks stamps is rub-ons. Everything that looks like ribbon is paper (die cut), and lots of chipboard accents.

Valentine Vignette

I've decided to jump on the "test tube" bandwagon, although I got these a little late to make a lot of Valentine gifts. This is a variation on Mrs C's tubes. I happened to have found that darling stretchy, curly ribbon at my LSS. I was going to use it on the tubes, but the reds didn't match very good and frankly I was too lazy to go down to the basement to find matching CS and ink!
Supplies Used: Tubes - Stampin Up Curly Label punch, Stampin Up Bella Rose DP, Stampin Up Riding Hood Red CS, Stampin Up Cute & Curly (label) stamp, Martha Stewart Valentine's stamps (for sayings and on punched-out hearts), Martha Stewart border punch, Marvy Heart punch, test tubes from Impress. Card - Making Memories ready-to-glitter stickers, Stampin Up Branching Out stamp set. Ribbon from my LSS, unknown manufacturer.
