TPE Challenge #24 - Animals

This week at The Pink Elephant we had the opportunity to use some digital stamps by Dustin Pike, you can see his blog which has a link to his stamps HERE he has some really cute stamps and even offers freebies every wednesday if you're interested in giving digi stamps a try. This week's challenge was to create something with an animal theme. I have 2 different cards to share with you today.

For my first card I used the Cupeecake Monkey stamp with some bazzil cardstock and pp from my stash. I added stickles to the sprinkles on the cupcake and the background was embossed with the cuttlebug number collage embossing folder. I had bought a Paper Wishes 3D cupcake template a couple months ago because I just love cupcake stuff and thought I should make one to go along with this card.

And my second card was the owl stamp. I used some reminisce summer fading pp behind the owl and some core'dinations cardstock embossed with the cuttlebug leafy branch embossing folder and I attached a little twig for my owl to sit on.

I made my owl dimensional by adding some pop dots to him

Be sure to head over to The Pink Elephant to see what the rest of the team did, they did a fantastic job this week! And thank you Dustin for these fab stamps!

I nearly went for the owl :) i love how you've decoupaged him...he looks fab, and is that a real twig? what a great idea!
