Newton's Nook Designs' January Release ~ Day 2

Welcome back to the second day of Newton's Nook Designs' January release!  Today's set features some cute snuggling pets along with some fancy hearts and sentiments perfect for a variety of occasions.  Introducing 'Darling Duos':

And there are Purr-fectly matching DIES for this set too!  SQUEEEEE!


Don't you just LOVE the stitching on the heart?!!  I sure do!

Since Jen included dogs with this set (THANK YOU JEN!!)  I just HAD to use them in my card:

Doggie Daddy Father's Day card by Crafty Math Chick | Darling Duos stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs

Since our furbaby Ty gives his Daddy cards on holidays (oh come on, you know you do it too!) I decided to make a card for him to give his Poppa for Valentine's Day.  I selected a more masculine color palette and created the background using the heart with the paw print (LOVE THAT IMAGE JEN!) and the petite solid heart stamps in the set.  I cut the stitched heart shape out using the set's dies and then stamped the image of the doggie duo on it and colored it in with Copic markers.  I added the 'DAD' from NND's 'Winston's BBQ' set to the 'you & me' sentiment from this set to personalize it for my husband.  I could tell Ty knew the card was for him to give his Daddy because he stayed very close to me as I worked on the project and was extremely attentive when I snapped the photo... or maybe he just wanted the treats?...

What do you think?  ;)
