Now on to Valentine’s Day inspiration from Cassie Tezak: Hello, everyone! I hope you’re all having a great first week of February. I love getting into this month and prepping all of my Valentine’s Day cards. Today I get to share a card I made for Your Next Stamp’s Valentine Series. The design team is all creating projects for Valentine’s Day! There have been a lot of fun projects already, and I have another one to show you today.
YNS Supplies: COOL Cats stamp set Paw-some Pups stamp set Photo Booth stamp set Whatnot Sentiments Set Eleven Carnival Food Fun stamp set So Many Squares Panel die Floating Heart Panel Die Sugar Rush Sparkly gumdrops Watermelon Part Sparkly gumdrops
I really wanted to create a card that had a ton of the cute Your Next Stamp cats and dogs on it. I also really wanted to use some traditional Valentine’s Day colors. I started the card by ink blending Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink onto an A2 size card panel. Using a blender tool I made the color fade to the top in an ombre effect. I love this color, and it turned out so perfect. Next I took the small, solid heart from the new Carnival Food Fun stamp set and stamped it all over the panel. Sometimes I stamped directly on the panel and sometimes I stamped it off before putting it to the paper. This gave a variation of intensities. I also splattered the panel with some water.
Next I die cut one of the So Many Squares Panel die. I thought having all of the squares was going to be too busy (I already had a lot going on, and it was only going to get more crowded!) So I cut out the center squares with my scissors. I love that you could do this in a lot of different ways to make the die just what you need! I adhered it straight down to the ink blended panel. Next I stamped and colored a ton of the cats and dogs from COOL CatsPaw-some Pups, and the Photo Booth stamp sets. I love all these critters separately, but together they are like their own little gang of friends 🙂 I stuck to the same two color combos using a cool gray and light tan Copic combo. I also made any of their collar etc. a bright pink. I trimmed everyone out, and arranged them how I wanted them on the card panel.
Once everyone was in place and adhered, I just had some finishing touches to add to the card. I heat embossed my sentiment from the Whatnot Sentiments Set Eleven with white embossing powder and ink blended more of the Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide over it to match. That piece was trimmed down and adhered to the card with foam tape. Then, I ran the Floating Heart Panel Die through my die machine and used some of the hearts to add to my background. I put them all over and used them to fill in any places that I thought were bare. I also did this with gumdrops from the Sugar Rush Sparkly gumdrops set and the Watermelon Part Sparkly gumdrops set.
To add just a little more detail, I drew in some white gel pen accents and then my card was complete! I hope you enjoyed this card I created for the Your Next Stamp Valentine’s Series! Be sure to keep an eye out for more projects from the rest of the design team 🙂 Thank you so much for stopping by and I’ll see you again soon with another card! Happy Stamping! Cassie
