And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Valentine Critters

Thanks so much for coming back to join us for more of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps January Feature Hops!

You will love all of the adorable critters included in this fun Valentine stamp set!

•Clear stamp set includes 6 images and 10 sentiments
•Set measures approximately 6" x 8"
•Bunny image measures approximately 2.25" x 2.5" 
•Elephant image measures approximately 2.75" x 2.25"
•Designed by Diane Zechman
•Stamp set - $26

I had so much fun with this set, I have two projects to share with you!


Creative Nugget:  By now you probably recognize that background…it's the Leafy Flourish Background stamped with Versafine Crimson Red ink on Solar Crest card stock.  The two panels across the top used the flourish border included in the set. They were attached by stitching them only at the sides so the magnetic bookmark could be slipped onto the card.


The bookmark was created with the Bookmark Die cut on a folded piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock so that edge of the die extended above the fold line.  A layer of Solar Crest card stock was added to the top layer of the bookmark on which the sentiment was stamped.  A Spellbinders Scalloped Heart was attached at the bottom, and the adorable puppy was colored with Copic Markers, fussy cut, and attached to the heart.  The hearts are from the Elephant's balloons and were colored, fussy cut, and covered with Glossy Accents.  Positive and negative magnets were glued to the inside of the bookmark at the bottom to help keep the bookmark on the right page of your book.

When I saw THIS tutorial on Splitcoaststampers, I knew that the new Valentine Critters stamp set would be perfect for creating this fun pop-up box!


Creative Nugget:  The panels of the box are layered with Graphic 45 designer papers and True Black card stock.  The bunny was colored with Copic Markers, fussy cut, and popped onto the box. His little heart was paper pieced.  The sentiment was stamped on a hand cut banner.  The ribbon holds the box together, so when you untie the ribbon….


the flaps fold down and out pops the cutest little teddy bear along with several layered hearts...some spellbinders and some Heart Dies by SNSS.  Two of the hearts are on strips of acetate so they wiggle!  LOL!
