Hello friends! Today I'm excited to share a couple of sweet bear-themed love cards with the brand new MFT Heart Art Card Kit and Joyful Heart Bears Stamp Set and coordinating dies. These brand new products are fantastic for creating all kinds of amazing cards for Valentines and beyond. Both cards featuring components from the January Kit, the Joyful Heart Bears Stamp Set, and the Mini Cloud Stencil.

Both of my cards today feature a pink color scheme, stenciled Mini Clouds and components from the Heart Art Card Kit and Joyful Heart Bears Stamp Set to create adorable love-themed designs that will for Valentines and beyond! I always love having a good stash of love-themed cards on hand!
Neenah Smooth White Cardstock was stenciled with the MFT Stamps Mini Clouds Stencils and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink. I love non-traditional colors for clouds! The pink color compliments the rest of these cards much better than a blue cloud would.
From the landscape stenciled cloud background the landscape Double The Love Die-namics die from the Heart Art Card Kit was die cut from the cloud background. The word "love" was also die cut 3 times from Gina K Passionate Pink Cardstock. The panel and the first layer of cardstock letters were inlaid into the design on a side fold card base. The cardstock letters were adhered one on top of another to give the greeting subtle dimension. The die cut sentiment was finished with the stenciled die cut letters adhered slightly offset.
A sentiment from the Joyful Heart Bears was stamped above the word "love" with Lawn Fawn Plastic Flamingo Ink.
The bear and butterfly images from the Joyful Heart Bears Stamp Set were stamped on Bristol Smooth Cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black Ink and colored in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. The images were die cut with the coordinating dies and adhered with foam adhesive as shown.
Nuvo Crystal Drops in White Blizzard were applied to the wings on the butterflies and the design was finished with a scattering of Honey Bee Stamp Strawberry Ice hearts.
For my second card a greeting from the Joyful Heart Bears was stamped along the bottom edge of the portrait stenciled background with Lawn Fawn Plastic Flamingo Ink.
The Mini Heart Shaker Window and Frame Die-namics (FREE with $60 purchase from MFT Stamps) was die cut from the upper part of the design. I only used the window, not the frame today.
A Heart Art image was stamped on smooth white cardstock using Lawn Fawn Plastic Flamingo Ink and die cut with the same die. The heart was adhered directly to the card base and the panel was adhered with foam adhesive for dimension.
The bears and butterfly images from the Joyful Heart Bears Stamp Set were stamped on Bristol Smooth Cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black Ink and colored in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. The images were die cut with the coordinating dies and adhered with foam adhesive.
Nuvo Crystal Drops in White Blizzard were applied to the wings on the butterflies, the hearts in the pail, and the heart the bear is hugging. The card was finished with a scattering of Honey Bee Stamp Strawberry Ice hearts.
