My Cute Stamps Tuesday!


It's My Cute Stamps Tuesday! Wooo! This time I am using the Little Forest Friends set and the Circus Animals set. I love that these sets can mix and match!
I made this card with a lot of challenges in mind: The Caardvarks ribbon challenge, The Moxie Fab gradient is radiant challenge (best challenge name EVER), the CARDS blog banner challenge, and the Kelly Purkey 2Peas Typhography rub-on challenge.
These cutie pie woodland creatures just make me smile! How cute are they?! I made stapled ribbon grass again. (The stapler and I battled it out again. I won. :) ) I also did my ribbon knotting technique again but this time to form the knots "holding" the pennant letters up.
I had the pennant banner be gradient in color, and I think it turned out radiant! I am so grateful for that challenge because I am going to keep trying to do gradients in my cards. It looks so fun! The letters on the pennant flags are rub-ons. This was the first time I ever used rub-ons. Can you believe it? I have to admit that I tried to use the rub-on with the wax paper still on the back for a few minutes. I thought I had broken rub-ons! I just might be addicted now :).

I wanted to remind you guys about the Everything But the Kitchen Sink challenge going on. Come along and play with us over at Courtney's blog. It is really fun to make a card out of what you get in the mail. I had such a blast, I did it twice! :)
Paper: Neenah Paper Classic Crest (solar white)
Ink: Ranger Adirondack (pitch black, espresso), Stampin' Up (real red, pretty in pink, blush blossom), Papertrey Ink (hibisbus burst, melon berry, summer sunrise), Hero Arts Shadow (soft pool)
Stamps: My Cute Stamps (Circus Animals, Little Forest Friends), Hero Arts (clouds)
Etc: American Crafts ribbon, American Crafts rub-ons (Alex), Copics
Thank you so much for visiting!

Have an amazing day,
