Cuddles and Hugs

Here is another sample using Cuddles and Hugs, one of the Lucky Seven stamp sets being offered in a fantastic sale at Gina K Designs this weekend. This stamp set is filled with the sweetest animal images, all cozy and cuddly! I used the koala bears on this card. Aren't they adorable!

I colored the koalas with Copic markers and then cut them out. I mounted them on a piece of glossy white cardstock, that I had sponged with Certainly Celery and Old Olive ink, then stamped using the bamboo stamp from the set. I also colored in the leaves on the bamboo with Copics. I layered with GKD Pure Luxury Black Onyx, SU Kiwi Kiss and SEI glitter paper. The sentiment is cut with Nestabilities. Oh, check out those cool nail heads! I love these! They look like brads, but they are flatter and self adhesive, so you can add them last minute and not worry about brad prongs sticking through.

You can read about the Lucky 7 Stamp Sale in this post from yesterday.

Some of the other DT are sharing more Lucky 7 samples tonight. Check them out for some great inspiration.

Hey koalas definitely are not bears! They are silly beak-nosed tree-huggers!
