Alrighty, then, on to my cards. I have two for you today, using each of the Birdie Brown sets for this month. They are SO stinkin’ CUTE, y’all! You’ll be seeing lots more of them from me this month, for sure! So, my first card started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then I popped up my sky, made with Blue Breeze card stock—one of the new colors for this month. It is really blue—not aqua, but a really NICE light blue—I’ve been longing for this color, I truly have. I added Fresh Cut Grass Die-namics cut from Field Day card stock, another new color for this month, at the bottom to start creating my scene. From there I added a sun, cut with Sun, Moon, & Stars Die-namics from Lemon Chiffon card stock and some Flat-Bottom Clouds Die-namics cut from Sweet Tooth card stock. Now on the the new stuff! I used Brick Red card stock for the wall, stamped with Small Brick Background and Sweet Tooth pigment ink, heat embossed with clear detail embossing powder and popped up on foam mounting tape. I cut the dog and hydrant with BB You Make My Tail Wag Die-namics from Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth, 110lb paper, stamped the images from BB You Make My Tail Wag stamp set with Black Licorice hybrid ink, colored them with Copic markers, and popped them up on foam. There's another dog image that leaves no doubt about what he's up to but I love the mysterious smile  on this one's face--kinda like the Mona Lisa, LOL, and you're not quite sure whether he's going to do it or not ;-) The sentiment was stamped on Black Licorice card stock with Sweet Tooth pigment ink, heat embossed with clear detail embossing powder, and popped up on foam, as well.

On the INSIDE, I stamped another copy of the dog image and another sentiment from the set.

Now on to the kitty card. There are those who say I might be a crazy cat lady and I guess there’s some validity to that claim ;-)

This card started with a Kraft card stock base, then I stamped up several pieces of patterned paper using new sets. From the bottom, I stamped the yarn ball from BB I Knead You stamp set over and over, randomly, on a piece of Sweet Tooth card stock with Cherry Crisp dye ink, Safety Orange dye ink, and Black Licorice hybrid ink. Next, also with Black Licorice hybrid ink and Sweet Tooth card stock, I stamped the new Paw Print Background. Last, I stamped the fish from BB I Knead You on Safety Orange card stock with Black Licorice hybrid ink. I cut the kitty, the speech bubble, and the yarn balls using BB I Knead You Die-namics from Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth, 110lb, stamped the images from BB I Knead You with Black Licorice hybrid ink, and colored them with Copic markers. I popped them up on a Stitched Traditional Tag STAX Die-namics cut from Sweet Tooth card stock and tied with black twine, finishing off with some enamel dots.

Another sentiment from the set was stamped on the inside.
