C is for Critters

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter C. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their C element will be featured in their post.

If you came from Catherine then you're on the right track!

These cute Spring Critters are from the new Seasonal Expressions and the Spring Critters stamp set comes with the matching Thin Cuts, so you can easily create  cute critters!

I decided to create three cards using this new stamp set and matching Thin Cuts.

The first card is the Artfully Sent Floral Wreath Card cut in Topiary Cardstock. I added the sweet bird, coloured blue, with the sentiment stamped in Topiary Ink. Some gold circles from the Fundamental Assortment Gold finished it off.

This orange fox is adorable! Once again I used Topiary Cardstock and Topiary Ink for this Artfully Sent Flower Sentiment Card. The wooden log and stripe stickers come from the White Pines Complements.

Lastly, this Artfully Sent Easter Egg Sentiment Card paired perfectly with the cute bunny and Easter sentiment, which I stamped with Pear Ink and matched with Pear Cardstock. This bunny only needed a touch of pink on the ears, nose and cheeks. The paper strip at the top is from a retired Paper Packet.

These three cards came together easily as these Critters take centre stage and do not need a lot of extra embellishments.

If you want more information on how to use our new Thin Cuts, this video explains how to use them with your die cutting machine.

Your next stop on our Everything ABC'S blog Hop is Wendy of My Scrapbooking Blog.
