Raccoon Hugs Valentine's Day Card | Mirror Stamping | Ink On 3


Hello friends! Hope you all are staying warm. Right now our city and surrounding areas are under an extreme weather warning so we will be hanging out close to home this weekend!

Today I have a super cute Valentine's Day card to share with you featuring the newest set from Ink On 3 Racoon Hugs.  As soon as I saw the image of the raccoon holding a balloon I knew I wanted to create a mirrored image to make a cute little raccoon couple for Valentines Day. Today is also Day 2 of the Kathy Racoosin's #thedailymarker30day Color Challenge so make sure you are following me along on Instagram to catch my daily coloring posts 😉

 CARD DETAILS

To begin I added Versa fine Black Onyx ink to the image of the raccoon, avoiding the arm and balloon and then stamped it onto a piece of acetate a few times using a stamp positioner. I then used the inked acetate sheet to transfer the image onto the cardstock before the ink dried, using my finger to press the image into the paper. Next, I stamped the raccoon with the balloon beside the mirrored one to create a couple.

To create a moon, I drew a circle around the raccoons using a pencil and then colored the images and the background in using Copic markers. Once the background was completely dry I used the small star image from Merry and Bright and the larger star image from Fairy Christmas, stamped them out using Juicy Ink and then heat set them with Arctic White embossing powder. I also added a layer of Liquid Pixie Dust overtop the sky area and the balloon to add sparkle to the card. To the balloon, I also added a layer of glossy accents.

Finally, to finish off the card I stamped the sentiment below the raccoon couple using Juicy Ink and then heat set it with Black as Night Embossing Powder.

Fantastic Valentine's card, great idea, so adorable. Don't ask where my heads been but I've never seen any IO3 stamps before, must go have a good nose around. Thank you for introducing me to them , here's to a warmer week.

Thanks so much for the kindness Andrea! Ink On 3 is a fairly newish company to the stamping world so I can see why you haven't heard of them. The owner Fleurette is a longtime friend of mine. Yes, I hope the weather warms up soon too!
