Amber Ink + Math = Love

Just a quick post while you still have time to make some Valentines!

I made these in a jiffy with Amber Ink's digi stamps.  How could I not use the equation one:
This is a fun technique from the Scrapbook Embellishment Handboook.  Cut the petals off of all those flowers you have but never use.  Put down a strip of adhesive and press the petals onto it.  I did one layer of petals, then another strip of adhesive, and another layer of petals.  Add a ribbon over it, some stickles to the bee & sentiment and boom-you're done!

Oh, want to make a card even quicker than that?
Ok, then, print the Amber Ink image, die cut and add some Distress Ink and stickles.  Emboss yellow cardstock with PTI Sunshine plate.  Add flower that you had in your closet from when you used the stems to make your paper hydrangeas.  Now how do you like them apples flowers?

Want an even quicker gift than that?  Well, go to amazon.com and gift 2 mp3 songs for free with code VDAYMP3S.  See the deets here.
