We Create February Blog Hop Lovely & Sweet


Welcome to the We Create February Blog Hop as we start a new month with the theme "Lovely & Sweet". We will be sharing wonderful projects and ideas to help inspire you to get creative.
For my card design today, I decided to create a sweet Valentine's Day card using products from the Sweet Talk Suite Collection from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog. I also used the cute Awesome Otters stamp set, which is a Sale-a-bration Reward you can earn free with a qualifying $50 order. I just love the sweet little otters in this stamp set.

Heart stamped and die cut with the Sweet Conversations Bundle
This cute Valentine's card is easy to create using the Sweet Talk Designer Series for the background of the card and I used the Sweet Conversations Bundle to create the heart sentiment label. The Real Red Faux Linen Ribbon is also from the suite and coordinates perfectly with the designer series paper. To create the focal layer, I die cut the Real Red scalloped rectangle using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and cut a piece of Basic White cardstock to fit inside so that the focal image would be framed and stand out against the designer series paper. I stamped the cute otter with Early Espresso Classic ink and colored the image with Stampin' Blends Markers. The little fish that the otter is holding is his "sweet treat" and I colored it with Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blends Markers. I love how everything coordinates to create a fun card design that is sure to brighten someone's day.

  1. Adorable Otter loves his fish! He is so cute - what a great valentine idea

  2. I didn't send out Christmas cards, so I have been determined to send out some Valentines (I can't believe it's already February!!!). And I decided I wanted to use the otters, but wasn't super sure yet how to incorporate the two. Your card is just what I had in mind! Thanks for sharing :-D
