Stamping With Friends December Blog Hop Mini/Sale-a-bration 2022 Sneak Peeks

Welcome to the Stamping With Friends December Blog Hop, as we showcase Sneak Peek projects, featuring products from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog and 2022 Sale-a-bration Catalog. Our wonderful Design Team Members will be sharing projects and ideas to help you get excited about these amazing new catalogs. 
One of my favorite things to do with new products is to mix and match them to create projects. For today's card design, I decided to showcase the Sweet Conversations Bundle from the Sweet Talk Suite in the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog with the cute Awesome Otters stamp set from the 2022 Sale-a-bration Catalog. I love creating sweet Valentine's Day cards using animal images and the cute otters in this stamp set work perfectly with the hearts in the Sweet Conversations stamp set. The variety of dies in the coordinating Sweet Hearts Dies are so much fun and provide a lot of possibilities for embellishing projects.

This cute card design is so much fun for Valentine's Day. I chose Blushing Bride, Real Red, Basic White and Gold Foil for my color combination. I added texture to the card front with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. To color the otter image, I used Crumb Cake and Cinnamon Cider Stampin' Blends Markers and stamped the heart image with Tuxedo Black ink and Blushing Bride Classic ink. The framed hearts worked well for a border below the sentiment and I popped up a couple of the hearts with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. Instead of adding bling to this card design, I decided to keep it simple, using Gold Foil for the circle framing the focal image and Clear Wink of Stella on the heart image. It was so much fun creating this card and I can't wait to try combining these products to create new projects. Remember, you can earn the Awesome Otters stamp set for Free during Sale-a-bration, beginning January 4th, 2022.
