JAI #46 - Just Add Critters

This week at Just Add Ink it was a fun, fun, fun challenge - Just Add Critters.  I had so many ideas running through my head it was hard to settle on just one.  In the end I decided to use my 'must have immediately' Owl punch that I had yet to use!  This is what I came up with:


Aren't they so cute - even thought they are kind of fiddly little suckers to put together.  And if you are not careful, that punch bites - I've still got a few little  marks on my hand where it bit me, not once but twice.  Ouch.

You may also notice something new - the lovely square lattice folder from the Summer Mini, which is available now.  Their bellies have been punched from the Ski Slope DSP, which is now retired, the sentiment is from Christmas Classics set and the ribbon is also retired.  I have also spritzed the embossed layer with my Shimmer Paint Mist.  (and yes, it did make the Real Red ink feather just smidge :( )

Make sure you check out what the rest of the Design Team have come up with, they are all super cute!!!

I'm off now to make a birthday card for one of Harry's little friends who is having his party tomorrow - hopefully the rain will hold off till late afternoon as we are heading off to the park.

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Christmas Classics
Ink:  Real Red
Paper:  Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Whisper White, Ski Slope DSP (retired)
Accessories:  Owl Punch, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Tombo Mono Multi Glue, Big Shot, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Baja Breeze Ribbon (retired), Dimensionals, Frost White Shimmer Paint (as mist)

Hi Jo,
well these guys are too cute for words! Using the DSP for their bellies really gives it a Christmas flavour and I bet it sparkles IRL!
