Cups Full of Love

I was so happy to see Mama Elephant and ME's challenge.  I just got some of their stamps and dies and couldn't wait to start using them!  "NBUS", as Darnell would call it.  The bonus is that I also have my husband's Valentine card done:

Tea tags and whipped cream?  What kind of concoction is this anyway?  Cups full of love, sweetheart, cups full of love.  This was so fun to put together.  I used the reverse stamp technique and filled in with a Zig Writer marker for the cup on the left.  The whipped cream is a top of a cupcake from Carnival Cupcakes, and those lips received both Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents.  The hearts, whipped cream and tags also received a Wink from Stella.  The "Hello" is inlayed into the cup and pink cardstock.

This card was inspired by the following challenge:
