You can see how I made this card in detail in the video above. I started by going through my stamp sets and pulling out all of the ones that had hearts or paws in them. I was surprised how many I had! I then also went through and picked out a bunch of red and pink shades of ink.
For the biggest hearts I used Simon Says Stamp’s Really Like You stamp set. I also used some smaller hearts from Lawn Fawn’s Mermaid For You and Happy Wedding. The smallest paw print I used was from Paper Smooches’ Chubby Chums, and the other paw and paw/heart hybrid stamps all came from Three Room Studio’s Wind In Your Fur.
The inks I used were a combination of Altenew and Simon Says Stamp inks. I used Hollyhock and Watermelon from Simon Says Stamp, and Rose Quartz, Coral Berry and Ruby Red for the Altenew inks. Any reds and pinks you may have could work perfectly for this card. Likewise you wouldn’t necessarily need to have the same stamp sets for the hearts and paws.
The last element to add to my card was a sentiment. I chose I Love Mew from The Greeting Farm‘s retired Purfect Cats stamp set. Again, other stamps could be used. The Paper Smooches’ Chubby Chums stamp set has “You’re Purrr-fect” which would work well, for example. Or “Have A Yappy Day” from the Three Room Studio set. I just felt like using the other sentiment as I had it!
I’m really happy with how this card turned out. It’s not at all what I had in mind when I started. Initially I’d planned to add an actual cat image to the card, but I decided there was enough going on just with the hearts and paws. I enjoyed being able to make a quick and easy one layer Valentine card without having to do any masking.
