Little Hugs Card with Leanne

Hey there friends! I’m happy to be back on the blog today with a simple but sweet card design. This one features the adorable hugging squirrels from the Little Hugs stamp set. I started this card with the wood grain panel. I stamped the Old Oak background with white pigment ink onto kraft card stock. I then gave it a little splatter with watered down dark brown ink. I die cut an oval right into the center of the wood grain panel and added the skinny white deckle edge frame. I used 2 of the Nesting Deckle A2 dies...

I used one of the Nesting A2 Deckle dies to trim the background panel down...

Bear Family Treehouse Card with Leanne

Hello there! I’m sharing a card today which features a treehouse scene with some sweet bears from the new Bear Family stamp set. I love these bears and they are just the right size to go with the Treehouse Scene die. Even though this treehouse set was intended for winter scenes, I wanted to use it for a summer scene. It can of course work for any season and I think would make a wonderful focal point for a fall scene too. To make this treehouse suitable for a summer scene I simply added some green treetops. This die...
