Hello Friends! Today, I’m sharing this sweet Count on Me Valentine card!
This card features the Count on Me stamp set #155647, Always in My Heart stamp set #158183, Floral Heart Dies #154306 and the fun new Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper #157616. It was a fun card to create using the paper piercing technique.
The bear image is from the Count on Me Stamp Set and is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Basic White card stock and then colored with Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends. I wanted to give the bear some light and dark fur so I used the Stampin’ Blends Color Lifter to lift some of the color off to create a muddled fur effect.
The flowers are stamped using Blushing Bride ink. The flower outline is stamped in full strength ink and the flower center is stamped off one time before stamping the final image. I used Granny Apple Green ink for the leaves. My ink pad was extra juicy so I stamped the leaf outline off one time before stamping the image. The center of the leaves are stamped off two times before stamping the final image.
Center of the heart: I applied a light sponge layer of Highland Heather ink using a Stampin’ Blending Brush to create the background.
I used the paper piercing technique to create the bear’s jumper. I first stamped the image onto the Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper using Memento Black ink. Next, I hand drew the bears jumper onto the stamped image. Then, fussy cut out his jumper. This piece was glued down to the bear image colored with Stampin’ Blends.
