It’s Cute & Cuddly Critters today!

I was sad to see these two sets on the retirement list that feature both cute and cuddly critters in them. They have been two of my favorites to use. After all who doesn’t like animals, right?

First the Life in the Forest stamp set (133848/133851). Here are some fun cards I’ve made with this set.

And the Little Buddy Birthday stamp set (133860/133863).

And a extended swing card.

It’s sad to say goodbye but the good news is you can still order these two sets until June 2nd.

Leadership Shoebox Swap – Life in the Forest

Here is my first shoebox swap from Leadership in Houston. I love the way this card turned out and the little animals in the Life in the Forest set. I think this would make a great card for anyone who loves animals, but especially for those guys in my life. What do you think?

Life in the Forest  Leadership 2014

This card was simple and quick to make. All I did was stamp my images in Jet Black StazOn and then water color the images using my Classic Ink Pads. After they dried I punched them out using my 1″ Square Punch and mounted them onto Early Espresso pieces that I punched out with my Postage Square Punch. Don’t you love how easy and quick punches make things?

The little piece of Island Indigo Chevron Ribbon gave a bit more texture and I thought the quirky little sayings in the Sassy Salutations set fit these cute little images just right and conveyed the whimsical feeling I was going for.
