The sentiment was inspired by my love of snuggling my two pups, Hammond and Penny, and giving smooches to my hunky husband, Joe.
At first glance, this month’s new photopolymer release may seem like it is just for Valentine’s Day, but I think it could be used any time of the year when you want to share some affection with those you love.
Two of my favorite images in the set are the swirls. I’m sure you’ve noticed how trendy it is to wind up some Linen Thread or Baker’s Twine and use it as an element on cards and other projects. You can see on this card how the large swirl image helps accomplish a similar feel.
The swirls also create interesting background patterns that can be used with a technique like emboss resist—as shown on this adorable little card.
Or simply stamp—as I did on this tag. The “Love” sentiment works great for creating a chalkboard effect.
There are three heart images in this stamp set. They were drawn to coordinate with three of our heart punches: the Sweetheart Punch, the Hearts Border Punch, and the heart from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. The “Love” sentiment will also coordinate with either of the Tag Topper punches.
I can’t wait to see what you create with this stamp set—whether it’s a valentine for someone you love, notes of encouragement, memory keeping, or treat packaging. Leave a comment below with a link to your creations, or upload them to Pinterest and tag them #SnugglesAndSmooches. I know I have more ideas for what I want to make with this set!
Doesn’t this look like a fun stamp set to play with? I’m getting mine on order so that I will be ready for making some adorable Valentine’s cards with you!
