Otterly Missing You!

Hello friends!  I wanted to say thank you for adding your comments from my last post about the card kits! LOL!  I see that I’m not alone!  You’ve all actually really inspired me to get them pulled out and use them despite how old/new they are!  Loved the idea about making several cards and sending them along to charities too!  Always love reading your feedback! 🙂

Today I wanted to share with you another card I made with the oh so adorable Digi Doodle Studios “Otterly Love” Pairables set that you may remember my card from last week that I’ve posted HERE.  I’ve used it again for my card below:


His sweet little face gets me every time! 🙂   As in the previous card I made with this set, I’ve arranged the digital images from the set how I wanted them to look on my design and then just printed it out.  (Check out the set in the store or see photo below this post for all the images included with this set!)

After coloring up my image panel, I die cut it out with a cross-stitch rectangle die and set it aside.  I cut a white A2 sized top folding card base and then layered a white heart embossed (folder from Stampin’ Up!) card front panel that was also cut with the cross-stich rectangle die.  I used some watered down ink (Strawberry Slush from Stampin’ Up!) and a fan brush to splatter some color over it.  I also CAREFULLY took the image panel and splattered some more over that panel as well.

I then arranged the rectangle layers including the gray colored cardstock (Smokey Slate from Stampin’ Up!)  panel and attached them to the embossed card front panel.  I tied some of that triple stitched ribbon (from Stampin’ Up!) around all of these layers and added a bow with it before attaching it all to the card base.  Lastly, I’ve added some clear sequins.


Here’s a closer view of the Copic coloring I’ve done on this cute critter posing on his little rock.  (I thought he needed a bit of ‘water’ around him.)

You can see the hearts and along the bottom of his feet where I’ve added some shimmer with a clear glitter brush pen.  I’ve also used a white gel pen for his cheeks and eyes.


It’s a super simple card, but oh so much fun to color him up!  I thought it was a nice card to send for a ‘miss you’ to someone you love!

Hope you’ve enjoyed my card today using this cute digital set!  Please be sure to stop on over at the Digi Doodle Studios Facebook Group and join us to share your DDS projects and grab some inspiration.  You can also join several of the on-going challenges as well!

  1. Your little otter is just darling, of course, Miss Vicki! The fanned background is a great way of drawing out the soft colors and all that sweetness! hugs, de


  2. I love every perfect hair on your delightful otter!! Sensational card, Vicki! A fabulous design for a long-distance Valentine!


  3. Another cute creation. Especially since I have seen them “pose” just like this. I often wonder what they think of us as we adore their little faces. I always enjoy seeing how you splatter the backgrounds – did I tell you I tried this and it was a big fail? I will have to give it another go since I do like the effect.


  4. The expression on the otter’s face is just priceless! Love the angled panels, great spattering and beautiful coloring too. this card is guaranteed to bring a smile to the lucky person who receives it 😉
