Monogram Set and more!

This week's Stamp Simply (ssnotime74) is to make monogrammed items. I needed to make some more monogrammed cards for my aunt, so I came up with these:

These are also for Cuttlebug Challenge Be Inspired #18 - shaped cards. And I loved how Dawn embossed kraft cardstock, so I tried that too! Here's a close-up of each card:

It's late, and I need to get up early, so I'll add the recipe for each card tomorrow. I'll also share a quick tutorial on how to make that ribbon flower!

ETA: Here's the recipe!

Stamps: Simply Said (SU), Curlz Monogram set (JustRite)
Paper: Whisper White, Kraft, Blush Blossom, Lovely Lilac (SU)
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Blush Blossom, Tempting Turquoise, Yoyo Yellow,
Lovely Lilac (SU), VersaMark (Tsukineko)
Accessories: circle punch, brads (SU), Classic Circles, Labels II, Scalloped Cricles Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Swiss Dots, D'Vine Swirls, Birds and Swirls embossing folder, CB (Provocraft), paper piercer (Making Memories), design ruler, Stickles, clear embossing powder (Ranger), dew drops (Robin's Nest), purple ribbon (American Crafts), pearls (Kaiser), yellow ribbon (unknown)

And of course, it's almost Valentine's Day. Chloe and I made cards for her daycare/preschool class and teachers. I helped her with the names on the front:
And she wrote her name on the inside.
Finally, I just had to redo the base of this card (don't laugh Carrie!). I think this looks much better!
