Hero Arts | Beary Valentine's Day Card

Hero Arts | Beary Valentine’s Day & Penguin Love You Cards

Did I mention I am not yet ready to put my Christmas stamps away? Christmas came way too early this year for me and I just want to keep playing with my Holiday-themed stamps for as long as I can! So you’ll have to excuse me using all sorts of Holidays images in my non-Christmas cards over the next few weeks.

Hero Arts has a fun Holiday Animals stamp set that I am particularly fond of this time of year, I am just now starting to enjoy it and I couldn’t resist using it to create two Love & Valentine’s Day cards. I have a fun Valentine’s Day card up on Hero Arts blog featuring a handsome bear and lots of love!

PLAYFUL VALENTINE’S DAY PENGUIN

My second project showcases a playful penguin all dressed up in a scarf and a hat for some fun winter outdoor activities.

Like this project? Pin it and save for later

This adorable little guy comes with a scarf, but I also decided I needed to a add a hat to complete his fashionable winter look. The hat came from another stamp set, Kelly’s Smitten Mitten. I colored both hat and scarf using Copics, and I used my go-to teal color combo (I’ll share all of my Copic color combos tomorrow).

I also stamped and die-cut a frame from the Holiday Tags set (I wanted to add something behind my penguin) and stamped Love You More from the You Are My Happy set.

I adhered all of these pieces onto an A2 top folding card base made out of gray cardstock, added some natural twine, stamped a few hearts and adhered several clear droplets.

Are you ready to put your Christmas stamps away, or are you like me? Share below!

    1. Oh my goodness Yana these are sweet and YES, I am like you except I NEVER put my Christmas stamps away this soon. Mind you, I don’t have a blog but I do like to use this time of year to make my cards for NEXT year. Right now I have so many wonderful ideas I just learned that I make my best cards while they are fresh in my mind. (This is SO NOT the time to put them away! LOL)
      TFS and Happy New Year!

    1. Very cute cards! I have so many holiday themed stamps, I really appreciate the ideas to keep using them! Thank you!
