This new stamp is simply sugary sweet and will be perfect for making Valentine's. I used plenty of stickles to highlight each layer. It really gave it a good sparkle and diminsion. I kept the embellies minimal so that the card itself would be "mail friendly". It was hard to decide which coloring technique would be best but I wound up using Copic markers. This little guy is saturated with color and I merely love the way he turned out. He really makes me smile.

Oh my. What can I say about this set? I LOVE IT! This collection is another fabby one perfect for Valentine cards. It includes four critter images, twelve sentiments, and one small embellishing bow image. Again I used a bunch of stickles for dimension and sparkle. I also added Diamond Glaze for the icy effect. The ribbons are from Clear Dollar Stamps' Clearly Coordinating ribbons.
