Once again I thought I'd try out untraditional valentine colors. I love chocolate chip brown with almost any color. It's one of my favorites!

I stamped the background using versamark ink and used my 1/2" circle punch to do a ticket corner on the heart layer. If you have this punch read my tip for getting 2 different puches out of this one punch.

Tip: On the Stampin' Up! 1/2" circle punch you will see an "x" indentation in the metal when you turn it over. (pic. 1) Simply line the corner of your cardstock so it fits inside the top portion of the x. (pic. 2) It will look like a piece of pie or an ice cream cone. Punch it out, and Wallah! you've just done a ticket punch with your circle punch. (pic. 3). Easy as Pie!

All Stampin' Up! Product
Papers: Soft Sky, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip
Inks: Chocolate Chip, Versamark
Stamps: Season of Joy, (retired) Happy Hearts, Small Script
Accessories:1/2" round punch, dimensionals, chocolate chip grograin ribbon
