Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez

Birds of a Feather

Hello there, crafty peeps! I hope you’re all fully recovered from the holidays! I feel like I’m finally getting back into the hang of things and finally getting back into the craftroom after all the madness!

Today, I’m on the blog to show you this bright and cheery little card I made using the Kinda Cute “Cute Shaped Animals” digital stamp to create this card!

I printed the images on 80# Neenah Solar White Cardstock and then colored the little cuties in with Copic markers.

Then, I created a gorgeous and bright background using Squeezed Lemonade and Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxides.

To create some fun (albeit not true to life) clouds, I used the “Angel Eyes”Wow! Embossing Powder with Heffy Doodle’s “Head in the Clouds” stencil.

I created a white frame border using Stitched Rectangle Dies. I also cut some Lawn Fawn Bunting Borders for my birds to sit on.

I grabbed some sentiments from the Heffy Doodle “Wingman” stamp set and used white embossing powder on black cardstock. I adhered everything to my card using 3D foam strips and squares!

Here are a few close-up photos of the finished card!

Thank you so much for dropping by today! I hope you’re staying healthy and happy! Xoxo, Amanda

Pandas Sending Good Vibes

Hey there crafty friends! I hope you are all having wonderful celebrations with your families for the holidays!

Today, I am sharing this bright and happy card using Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez Panda Bear Digital Stamp.

I printed the images on 80# Neenah Solar White cardstock and then colored the images with Copic markers. I cut the images out using precision scissors.

To create my card base and background, I used the Hello Bluebird Gallery Frames #4 Die. I created spots using the Heffy Doodle Dotty Lottie Stencil. I blended Twisted Citron, Rustic Wilderness, and Black Soot Distress Inks and Oxides for the background and only used Rustic Wilderness for my frame. I also cut some leaves using the Heffy Doodle Amazonian Leaves Dies.

I adhered everything to the card base using liquid glue, 3D foam squares and strips.

I love how cheery this card! I think it would brighten up anybody’s day, don’t you?!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today! I hope you have a wonderful New Years!

Xoxo, Amanda
