Hello everyone!

Thank you for stopping by! Today I would like to share with you a super cute card I made using “My Favorite Nut” stamp set by Neat & Tangled. I totally adore this set because it is REALLY versatile! The little stamps can be used as fillers in various types of cards and the little critters can be used to create cards for any occasion! Isn’t this great?! For today, I made a simple “Hugs” card! Who doesn’t like hugs?! ๐Ÿ™‚ I had create fun making it, hope you enjoy it as well!

DISCLAIMER: I am not affiliated with any company and whatever I say about any products is my true and honest opinion. Ioften check other people’s reviews/opinions about certain products before I decide to buy something, so I thought to do the same for other people who might consider buying the products I have used. ๐Ÿ™‚

Quick Instructions:

I started off by stamping the images on white cardstock. I masked the right one out in order to make them look like they are hugging each other. I colored them using Copic markers and then I fussy cut them leaving some white space all around them. Next, I used Tim Holtz Mini Birch Tree stencil, Oxides and a blending tool to create the background. I die cut the word HUGS out of black cardstock and decided to use the negative space on this card. I then adhered everything on my card panel. For the die cut I used glue and for my image I used double sided foam tape to give it some dimension. I watercolored the letters using Distress ink and that finished off my card!Easy!
