Featuring Cute and Adorable, Day 1

March 9, 2015

Join us as we continue to explore products from our newest release, Bring on the Happy. Each week you’ll find a special designer showcase and card samples with complete supplies and instructions. This week we take a closer look at all things cute and adorable.


Designer Therese Schaffer brings us a TRIPLE dose of cute today!




Therese used both 30-120 Man’s Best Friend and Creative Die, 51-128 Doodles, on her first creation.



Therese also took photos as she created this card so you can create one, too!


Stamp the doghouse from Man’s Best Friend several times on white cardstock. Using Prismacolor Pencils, color the doghouse in one image and color the dog in another.

Fussy cut the doghouse omitting the dog and bowl.  Fussy cut the dog in the second image.


On a white cardstock panel, randomly color the stencil, 25-012 Honeycomb, using Tumbled Glass and Shaded Lilac Distress Ink to create a patterned sky.  Set aside.

Cut a landscape bottom from green cardstock.  Partially die cut the hello sentiment from Doodles.  Cut two more times and adhere together for added dimension.


Adhere the green landscape to the bottom of the card panel.  Add the die cut back into the negative space.

Add foam tape to the dog image and adhere to the doghouse.


Stamp and color 3 butterflies from 30-234 Critter Time in order to fill in the open space on the right hand side of the card.

Add the panel to the cardbase.

Finally, adhere the doghouse to the left side of the panel.


And that’s not all folks! Therese has two more CUTE and ADORABLE cards for us today!
