Thinking of You

I have been collecting the Little Agenda Stamp & Die sets from Mama Elephant for a while now.  I have always had a soft spot in my heart for miniature things and these adorable little critters are just SO cute!  I actually made this card with various Little Agenda animals I had hanging around and the frame was one I had made a while back.  I hope you enjoy this card!

What I Used to Make my Card:
White Card Base
Grey Card with a subtle dot background {frame}
Darker Grey Card {sentiment}
Uniquely Creative Circle Cover Plate Die, #UCD1801
Mama Elephant Little Agenda Stamps & Dies, Monkey
Mama Elephant Little Agenda Stamps & Dies, Chickie
Mama Elephant Little Agenda Stamps & Dies, Cats
Mama Elephant Little Agenda Stamps & Dies, Dogs
Mama Elephant Little Agenda Stamps & Dies, Bunnies
Simon Says Stamp Thinking of You Die, #SSSD111927
Watercolor Paper {I use this}
Zig Clean Color Brush Markers
Gina K Amalgam Ink Pad in Obsidian Ink
Various Gel Pens
Derwent Inktense Pencils
Dimensional Dots

Like I said above, the critters were already stamped and colored.  I just added some gel pens for the accessories they are holding {they are tiny and I find it very difficult to watercolor in the items they are holding. Maybe someday when I learn how to use my Copic markers, I won't need to use gel pens!  But they do give a nice shine and bling to the images.}  Then I cut them out.  The frame was already attached to the card.  It had ripped while I was taking it out of the die but I still wanted to use it as I felt I could hide the rip somehow.  After I used dimensional dots to attach the critters to the card, I cut out the sentiment using darker gray card stock.  Lastly, I glued the sentiment onto the card, placed a glittery small heart I had {left over from another project} next to it, and I was finished.  I absolutely adore these Little Agenda sets and there are so many more for me to collect including little fairies, elves, reindeer, and more!

I hope you like my card!  I would love it if you'd consider following me on any of the social media sites where I am a part, including FaceBook. Feel free to let me know if you do decide to follow me and I will certainly return the favor. Thank you so much for visiting! Fondly, Christi
