New Anita Jeram Furry Friend Release and Blog Hop!

Hello Friends! It's time to celebrate furry friends with an adorable new release from Colorado Craft Company's Anita Jeram line! I hope you get a chance to look at the entire release as there are so many different and huggable critters and themes. 

You may have come from the blog of Kassi Hulet, but if not, please feel free to start at the beginning with Adrienne Kennedy CCC's  blog.

The Lift You Higher set features the cutest little scene of a kitty pushing another kitty on a tree swing. The sentiment "Siblings by Birth, Friends by Choice" is entirely sweet and not common to find in stamp sets. 

Did you happen to notice two robin eggs hiding in the tree?! These are from the Tiny Birds Worm Mini Stamp Set

I was able to tuck them behind the die cut tree that I left curving out for dimension, so there's a layered bit of dimension in this area of the card. 

They seem to be having a ton of fun, and if you didn't get that from the images, there's a cute little "WEEEEE" stamp and die you can add to your scene!

Another darling set of images can be found in the Stay Pawsitive stamp set. It comes with several sentiments that you can mix and match with the different images. 

Here's a little trick I do often: The first time I colored the little doggie I didn't like how dark I made the face. No worries! I just colored another face, cut it out, and popped it up on top of the first face. Done! This also serves to give more dimension by having the head come out at you.

The crouched doggie patiently waiting for his food bowl to be filled is utterly charming! I like how the sentiment "Stay Paw-sitve" is right underneath the doggie's paws. 

Then to finish off the card I stamped the bowl and a row of doggie bones. There are so many elements in this set that are interchangeable for the card you want to create. 

Finally, for this card from the Treat Yourself set, I let the sentiment take center stage, and added a little kitty being taken care of by her big friend. 

To help her stand out I put a few layers of cardstock die cuts under the kitty. Another detail is the gold thread stitched in long stripes across the card base. 

What a sweet way to show someone they matter!
