Hello From the Herd


Today's card is just for fun and I used the SU! set "From the Herd" for those fun animal images. I stamped them all on white, colored them with Copics and Gel pens, and then clear embossed them all before fussy cutting each one. I borrowed this unknown window die from a friend, and colored it with a Copic marker to look like wood. The background is a snippet of wheat dsp I've had from my scrapbooking days and seemed to work perfectly with these characters. I added a frog brad, along with a Lawn Fawn stamped bee image from the "Bee Mine" set, and added a SU! sentiment from the same stamp set as the images. It's all on a rust-colored card base. I added a couple of tiny googly eyes (now retired) from SU! to the piggy. I only have 2 more left, or I'd have added them to each of those silly animal's faces :)

I'm sharing this with the Snippets Playground weeks #279 and 280, because mostly all of this card was made with snippets.

Thanks for stopping by and have a happy Monday!

Edit - here's the inside if anyone's interested :)

Ah ah ah!!! This card is too much fun!! :D Love it sooo much! These silly faces make me laught and the googling eyes of the pig are a brilliant touch, as well the little frog brad! Love that window frame, it looks really as wood, and such great choice for the background, it makes the card not too much childish! Very well done!!

I love the silly animals in that stamp. How cool that you split them up and had them peering out windows. A fun card for sure!

A fabulous fun card. These funny characters look great behind the wood effect frame and the wheat designer paper is a super choice.
