It is time for a super cute challenge at Retro Rubber Blog Challenge. Use a critter stamp! A critter can be a bird, butterfly, anything with fur, or whatever if it has a cute face! So come join us and share your cute critter creations at RRBC.
I am not much of a “cute” stamper, so my image choices are a bit limited. Glad to have this fun peep from Unity Stamp Company that has been around since May of 2014.

I also used a new-to-me Oval Pull Card by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. To use this die it is best to just head over to her YouTube channel and take a look at her how to video or this fun video for inspiration. She is a great designer of moving cards and an excellent teacher as well.

I started with by stamping the peep form the aforementioned Little Sumptin’ Peep set. He is stamped in Imagine Memento Tuxedo Black on white card stock and colored with Chameleon pens in Cornflower Blue BL4, Indigo BL7, and Mellow Yellow YO2 and then fussy cut. All of the other papers were from my scrap bin; the patterned plaid paper is a very old Hot Off the Press probably purchased at Michaels 15 years ago! My scrap of pink was so small I almost didn’t get the 2 additional hearts I needed to hid the sentiment behind the window, glad that worked out! The balloons and mini present are dies that I have owned forever (think 15+ years) from Quickutz. The rest of the card is from the Oval Pull Card set, including the cute little heart. The sentiment that shows through the transparent window is from the Hero Arts OWH Missing You set. The sentiments are stamped in Imagine Memento Danube Blue. A little bit of craft thread in coordinating colors finishes the balloons off quite nicely don’t you think?

So come play with us at Retro Rubber Blog Challenge and show us your cute critters!
I am pleased to enter this card into the following challenges:
Pixe’s Crafty Workshop Week 244 Snippets (love that it matches my blog name!) All the papers are from my scraps, just barely enough pink to make the extra hearts I decided to use!
