Think I might need glasses.......

Hi there everyone and thanks for stopping by!! Hopefully you'll have a chance to do some crafting this weekend and maybe my card will give you a few ideas...

Unfortunately I STILL haven't received my parcel of the New Release products but I do have one of the birthday stamp sets that came out in April and one of the sentiments inspired this card:

I really hope you can see these are eyes and not lots of little pairs of slippers!! I just love this sentiment from the 'Happy Birthday' stamp set and used that as the theme for this card.

I started off by gathering a rainbow of cardstock and die-cutting the 'eyes' using this die from the Huggable Critters Set. I also die-cut some eyelashes using black cardstock.

 I used the largest Bubble-Box Fri-Dies with some white cardstock and used my MISTI to stamp the sentiment in the middle with Versafine Onyx ink.

Next came the time-consuming part (which you know I love...) where I glued all the pairs of eyes around the sentiment, having some of them hanging off the side and giving some of them some fabulous eyelashes. I then cut off any excess over the edges.

I cut a panel of black cardstock and adhered it to the card front. The 'eyes' panel was popped up on a piece of black foam and I finished off by gluing on a few coloured pearls from Studio Katia.

I just love finding ways to stretch out my dies and so happy to find another use for the Huggable Critters set!! This might give you some ideas on how to use your own dies in different ways and if your thinking you might have to get your hands on the products I used today, don't forget to use my special code to save yourself some money.

Here's to a fabulous weekend for you all and I'll see you back here again soon with some more card ideas.

Take care and stay safe
