February Stamp of the Month

Have you seen the cute February stamp of the month?  it's called Wild About Love.



You can only get it during February.  It's $17.95 if you just buy it, but the best part is, you can get it for just $5 when you place a $50 order!  woooooooo!  This is the cutest Stamp of the Month in this catalog.

Here's a very simple card made with the set.  What was kind of cool about it was that I stamped the fox on the right with Cocoa ink and the fox on the left with Slate ink.  I didn't even need to cut the stamp apart...just inked separately, and stamped quickly.

I used the NEW paper pack, Lollydoodle (X7183B, $9.95).




I made the conversation bubble (Cricut Artiste) at 1 3/4".  The beauty of it is, that if the conversation bubble is one way, the girl fox is saying something.  If you flip it over, the boy fox is saying something

You can easily change the sentiment -- Happy Birthday, Get Well Soon, etc.  It doesn't have to be a Valentine's card.  I love that!  It would be fun to color the fox's tails, ears and muzzle, too.  I think it would be fun if the girl fox was pink ...
