Stampin’ Up! Awesome Otters Friendship Card

All this week I’m sharing cards using items from the Sale-a-bration brochure which you can earn for free with a qualifying order.

Stampin’ Up! Awesome Otters Card

Today’s card uses the Awesome Otters Stamp Set for this week’s “Love” theme challenge.

May be an image of text that says 'Happy Inkin Thursday Blog Hop January 27 Theme Challenge Love Love'

My card starts off with Pool Party cardstock. I then embossed another panel of Pool Party cardstock using the Stripes & Splatters Embossing Folder.

I wound around some Pool Party ribbon in a bow to hide the seam from the embossing folder.

I next used the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to color the otter from the Awesome Otters Stamp Set. The key is to not color in the fish! I then colored him in using Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers and a light line of Pool Party Stampin’ Blends Markers around him in the water.

For the heart you can do one of two things.
One, what I did which is to use the use the Sweet Hearts Dies and cut out a Petal Pink heart to adhere over Mr. Otter’s hands.

Option two is to color in just the otter’s hands using the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker, use the heart die to cut out the heart, and then fussy cut the hands out.

This is definitely not the easier of the options, but gives a better look of the otter holding the heart.

Stampin’ Up! Awesome Otters Card

I cut the otter out using the Hippo Dies.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Special Moments Stamp Set in Memento Black ink.

To get a nice, dark black, I used my Stamparatus to be able to stamp this multiple times. I cut it out with the Layering Circles Dies.

Lastly, I added some Iridescent Rhinestones around.

Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Home Card

All this week I’m sharing simple cards using the Heart & Home Suite.

I decided to go with a monochromatic card with a pop of red for this months’ Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop theme “Love“.

My card today starts off with Thick Basic White cardstock.

I then used the Scalloped Contours Dies and cut out a label in Basic White cardstock.

Have you been getting lots of inspiration this week for Valentine’s Day cards?!

I’ve been using the Sweet Talk Suite and Sweet Conversations Bundle to make five Valentine’s Day cards this week with a variety of designs from super simple to a little more dazzled up.

My card today starts off with Blushing Bride cardstock, which I embossed using the Painted Texture Embossing Folder.

I did a “kiss technique” with the dotted stamp onto the solid heart in Highland Heather ink and then stamped the BFF over it in Memento Black ink. I stamped another solid Highland Heather heart and then cut them all out using the Sweet Hearts Dies.
