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!
