Critters Twofer

I'm playing along with this month's Twofer Card Challenge and I decided to use a NBUS* stamp set.

The stamps are from Craft Consortium, called 'English Garden'

I used Copic Markers - I'm no expert, so I usually try to make it look like watercolour. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

I was planing to use a tag for this card, but whilst browsing my stash I found this set from Neat and  Tangled, called 'Hand Stitched' and had a lightbulb moment!
I decided to add some hand drawn stitching around the fussy cut image, to tie it in with the embroidery hoop.

I hope you like these cute little critters - I had fun making my Twofer:)

I'm entering the following challenges:-

* NBUS - Never Before Used Stuff


  1. Love the stitching on the first card, and the gorgeous extra image on the second - two really sweet cards Jenny

  2. Your Copic coloring does look like watercolor, Jenny! These cute critters look like they are busy getting ready for winter.

  3. Oh, those little meece just love gardens, don't they? What adorable images these are and your coloring is fabulous to my eye, Jenny! I love both your CASlicious designs, but I especially love how you hand-stitched around your image on the birthday design to tie it in with the embroidery hoop! A very well-thought feature! Even the sediment is stitched! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #20! Hugs, Darnell

  4. Fantastic designs Jenny, I am loving the hand stitching around your embroidered design. Your coloring is the perfect style for the images. Thank you so for playing along with Twofer Card Challenge #20.

  5. Darling stamps and cards! I've never seen these stamps before, but I adore them. I need to learn how to make my Copics look like watercolor because I love how it turned out. I like how you added the faux stitching around the image on the birthday card. Two absolutely delightful cards for our Twofer challenge!
