I'm here today to share the SWEETEST Little XOXOXO Raccoon Valentine I made for the Newton's Nook Design Blog today using the New Sweetheart Tails Stamp Set!! =)
Sweetheart Tails Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs

I started by Layering two die cut Stitched Rectangles from Lil' Inker Designs!! I then Die Cut a white doily heart die and some white hearts from a heart die both from Simon Says Stamp!! I die cut a kraft and vellum tag using a PTI Tag Die and then I stamped the bottom of the Kraft Tag with the XOXO Image from the stamp set using Versa-Fine Black Ink!! I then stamped and embossed my image onto the Vellum tag using Versa-Fine Black Ink and Clear Embossing Powder!! I colored in my image using my Faber-Castell Artist Pitt Pastel Pencils and I LOVE the look you get when coloring on the Vellum!! I reads fuzzy, which for an animal image is PERFECT!! =)  I then added some 3mm wiggly eyes along with some May Arts Burlap Twine and a Grosgrain Bow!! I LOVE the way it turned out!!

I hope you enjoyed the card for today and that you'll give coloring on Vellum a try!!?? If you do I hope you'll share a link because I'd LOVE to come a check it out!!
THANKS so much for stopping by today and have a Fabulous Weekend!!

  2. Adorable card! The raccoon looks so cute! I love the pretty heart and the darling colors! Thanks for joining us at the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge Blog!

  3. This is just adorable! The raccoon is my favorite critter of that stamp set, and colouring him "fuzzy" on the vellum is truly inspired (I'm going to try that soon!). The googly eyes are so cute, too. Love your card, big-time; lots of sweet little details.

  4. Cute Valentine, Larissa, love your raccoon! so glad you joined in the fun at the colourQ.
