Thank You Hearts

The title of this post is very similar to Thank You Squares, but that does not mean they are similar in style.
I didn't measure the width of the border, but it looks a little smaller than 1/8 of an inch. 
Evenly divide into ninths.
1 3/4 of an inch.
Short sides - 1 5/16 of an inch.  You need not use the exact same measurements as I did.
White fabric.
...Cut into rectangles slightly smaller than the rectangles drawn on the card already.  the fabric pieces should have about a 1/8 inch border around them.
This stamp and the one below are what we are using.
Here are eight different inks.  Back row (the tubes) - black, light red, gold, orange, turquoise, red; front row (ink pads) - brown and purple.  If you click on the picture, you are probably able to read what each of the tubes say their color is.
A bunch of damp paper towels will be needed to clean fingers and stamps.
Usually, if you're using the tubes, you would dab ink on a piece of scrap paper, roll all over it with your roller until the roller is completely covered in ink, roll over the stamp, and then stamp on whatever you were intending to stamp on (at least that's how I would do it), but since we are doing each individual heart with a different ink, it's a lot more convenient and a lot less time consuming and ink wasting to simply put a bit of ink on your finger and rub all over the stamp.  Then you can just wipe off your finger on a wet paper towel.
All eight pieces - stamped and ready to go!
For the thank you stamp, you'll have to put ink on only "thank," stamp it on, and then do the same for "you."
Arrange them as desired.
You may not be able to tell very well, but the purple (top middle) and especially brown (bottom left) hearts are more faded than the others.  If you remember, they were the ones that I used ink pads for instead of tubes.
