Snarky Cats Mini Slimline Valentine

Hi friends! Happy Tuesday! Please join me in welcoming back special guest Cheiron Brandon to our blog today sharing these sweet and sassy Snarky Cat Valentines! Read on and enjoy!

Hi there crafty friends, it’s Cheiron here with an idea for some quick Valentine cards using the Tim Holtz Snarky Cat stamps. I combined these favorite stamps with some older favorite stamps sets – Crazy Talk and Crazy Things. These sets work perfectly together and I thought they would be great for some Mini Slimline Valentines. These Snarky Cats each have their own personalities and I think they all have different feelings about sharing their candy! 

To begin, I stamped out all my images (hearts, cat, sentiment) onto 3 – 3 1/4 x 5 3/4 Distress Watercolor panels using Archival Black Soot Ink. You will want to use a waterproof ink for this, since we will be watercoloring in these images . I also stamped the Heart Gift Box from the Crazy Things stamps onto a separate piece of watercolor cardstock and cut them out. I colored in the images using a Detailer Water Brush and Distress Ink Reinkers in Kitsch Flamingo, Candied Apple, Rusty Hinge, Brushed Corduroy, Pumice Stone, Hickory Smoke. I put the tiniest dot of each Distress Ink reinker onto my glass mat and used the water brush to pick up the color and loosely color the images in. 


I mounted each panel to a 3 1/2 x 6 card cut from Simon Says Lipstick Red Cardstock. To finish my cards, I added the Heart Gift Box with a piece of foam tape to give it some dimension and added a bit of Stardust stickles to the “lace” part of the box to give it some sparkle and shine. Hope you enjoyed this idea for creating quick and easy Valentine cards, I will use any holiday as an excuse to use the Snarky Cat stamps.
