Global Stamping Friends February Blog Hop Lovely & Sweet

Welcome to the Global Stamping Friends February Blog Hop as we showcase this month's theme "Lovely and Sweet". With Valentine's Day approaching, this is a great opportunity explore the wonderful ways to send a little love to the special people in our lives. 
One of my favorite bundles for creating cards from the heart, would have to be the adorable Fluffiest Friends Bundle, I love the variety of cute animal images in the stamp set and the wonderful coordinating dies that help to add creative touches to my projects. For today's card, I chose to use the beautiful Most Adored Specialty Designer Series Paper to create a fun, sweet Valentine's card. This pretty pack of paper is a Level 1 Sale-a-bration Reward that you can earn Free with a qualifying $50 order and is perfect for creating Valentine's Day cards to send to family and friends.

For today's card design, I chose to use the cute beaver image holding a stick heart. I thought it would be a sweet focal image for my Valentine's card. I also used the nest image to help ground him inside the Basic White circle die cut with the Deckled Circles Dies. I colored the images with Stampin' Blends Markers and added the images to the circle using Stampin' Dimensionals to pop them up. I used a larger Crumb Cake deckled circle to frame the focal circle and I sponged the edge of the circle with Crumb Cake Classic ink using a Sponge Dauber. For the sentiment, I heat embossed the image with Gold embossing powder onto Basic White cardstock and used the Perennial Postage Dies to die cut it out. I layered it onto the slightly larger Crumb Cake label, which also has the edges sponged with Crumb Cake Classic ink. Using Sweet Sorbet Baker's Twine, I wrapped a piece around the card front twice and tied a bow on the left side. I added the sentiment over the top of the twine with Stampin' Dimensionals and attached the focal image above the sentiment, making sure to center both of them. To finish off the design, I added a red heart from the Adhesive Backed Hearts & Flowers to complete the design. I had so much fun creating this sweet card design and hope it will help bring a smile to someone special.
