 Are you looking for some simple mini Valentine card ideas to make? Do you love a stamp that could be used for Valentines, but that you'll also use all year long on handmade cards? Today's blog post features the cutest Kitty Hug stamp (on cards that can be Valentines - but don't have to be) and she's part of the brand new February 2021 stamp release at Impression Obsession - so let's take a look!

Visit my blog to see ideas featuring the Kitty Hugs stamp, that says Here's a Hug, from Impression Obsession for handmade Valentine cards. These colorful and fun cardmaking ideas for Valentine's Day are simple and sweet and fun to make, including some card ideas for kids to color themselves.

Today is day 1 of our two-day blog hop celebrating the February stamp release at Impression Obsession. I have quite a few cards to share with you - and they all share one thing in common. They only use ONE STAMP. Just one, my friends! This fantastic Kitty Hug stamp is versatile, fun, and sweet for a variety of occasions. Today's cards could be Valentine cards - but they don't have to be. And I love that! 

Make a simple "Here's a Hug" handmade card using one simple rubber stamp from Impression Obsession. This paper-pieced kitty cat would be adorable for a Valentine card, but can be used all year long for thinking of you and encouragement card making ideas handmade with stamping. Visit my blog to see more ideas using this adorable red rubber stamp.

On today's first two cards I paper-pieced the stamped image with some bits of patterned paper for fun layered cards.  I'm ALWAYS.ALWAYS a sucker for pink, aqua + black and white. I just can't help myself!  

Next up - if you're looking for a SIMPLE Valentine card idea to give to kids, or for your kids to give to others, check out this idea . . .

Aw. That is a very sweet design. It takes a good eye to be able to envision a whole card around a single stamp that isnt huge!
