Say Happy Birthday with Critters

Hi Creative Friends,

Today I am having a little birthday fun with adorable critters. I chose a couple of my favorites. One from the Cheerful Critters by Penny Black and the other from My Favorite Things Friends stamp set. I don’t think you can ever have enough birthday cards at the ready and I like to have a variety of styles of birthday cards so that I can find just the right one to suit my birthday recipient.

Pretty Pink Birthday

Hi Creative Friends,

I am loving all ways you can use the new ‘YOU‘ die from Penny Black. It is a fantastic die to have in your stash!

So, with that in mind, here is another card design using this die, along with sweet, French-style flowers from the Flower Medley stamp set by Penny Black and one of my favorite elements, a sentiment banner. I am always so enamored by banners; they are so easy to draw too! Give them a whirl!

But, if you are feeling a little intimidated by drawing a banner yourself, I have included a copy of the one I drew for this card. You can access it here or at the bottom of this post.

Hearts of Love

Hi Creative Friends,

Happy January 2023! Every January is the month I start thinking about Valentine’s Day and this year I am starting out with the cutest little hedgehog ever! This stamp is called ‘This One” and is from a collection by Penny Black hedgehogs. He is carrying a basket of hearts and he looks so delighted with them as he skips along. Take a look, you’ll see what I mean!

Happy Birthday To You

Hi Creative Friends,

Penny Black has some brand new stamps and dies that we were dying to give a try. To start, we used the giant “YOU” die for our centerpiece, then accompanied it with an adorable hedgehog from the Cheerful Critters stamp set and the Balloons die set for a super fun, but simple, card design that works great for male or female, young, or old!

Penguin Pals + video

Hi Creative Friends,

I am squeezing in another fun and wintery video. This one is highlighting the adorable little penguins in the Penguin Pals stamp and die set by Pretty Pink Posh. I don’t often make cute critters scenes but this one just spoke to me. It was a sheer delight (it really was!) to make this card. So much so, I had to make a video to share it with you.

A Trio of Bouquets

Hi Creative Friends,

A few weeks ago I shared a sweet bouquet card using the Simply Graphic Bouquets stamp set. Now I am sharing the two others I made at the same time.

I just love this stamp set. The bouquets are simple and understated making them perfect card designs for any occasion. They are wonderful for a set of note cards…just change the sentiment or make simple, yet special greeting cards like these.

Spring Has Sprung

Hi Creative Friends,

I am popping in with an easy and very sweet little project using the cute Floral Background stencil and Easter Circles stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh. By the way, don’t let the word “Easter” in the title scare you into thinking it only can be used for this holiday. There are charming floral motifs that can be used year-round. Then, when combined with the Birthday Circles die set it adds a delightful accent to your card design.
