Valentine’s Day Card with Puppy Playtime by Newton’s Nook

Aaah! L’amore!  I love crafting this time of the month.  My craft desk  is full of my favorite things like hearts and sprinkles and love-themed stamps!  I just LOVE creating Valentine-themed cards and my project today showcases the Puppy Playtime stamp set and coordinating dies.

To begin, I stamped the puppy images on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in using my Spectrum Noir Classique and TriBlend markers.  I used the coordinating dies to die-cut the images.

At first, I wanted to ground my puppies by creating a landscape background using some stencils and dies.  However, I wanted to use some amazing patterned papers that I recently purchased when I was back home.  If you have been following me for while, you know that I don’t use a lot of patterned papers on my projects; it’s just not my style!  However, I wanted to get out of my comfort zone and try something new.   I chose some cute designs and cut them into strips and layered them onto my card base.  I also die-cut a nice scallop trim to adhere at the bottom of the card.

I adhered the puppy images on the card with some liquid adhesive.  The XOXO letters were die-cut using the Essential Alphabet die set and also adhered using liquid glue.  I stamped the sentiment with some Versafine Onyx black ink.

To finish my design, I use some Nuvo crystal drops in Bubblegum Pink.   Here’s a closer look:

I hope you like my Valentine’s card today.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Thank you for stopping by and happy stamping!
