Friday Show and Tell: Snugglepot and Cuddlepie!

Hello friends! I have such strong childhood memories of this iconic Australian book, Snugglepot and Cuddlepie,ย written by May Gibbs just over 100 years ago! When I found these stamps from Paper Rose Studio I knew I had to buy them ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

While I was only wanting to make one birthday card at the time, I stamped multiples of the images to have on hand for later:ย 

They’d also created matching dies so I had to buy them too ๐Ÿ˜‰ย ย After stamping the images, I was able to die-cut 3 images at once which was a real time saver:ย 

I’d used Tuxedo Memento Black ink to stamp onto Very Vanilla cardstock which meant I could colour the images usingย Stampin’ Blends (alcohol based markers):ย 

The gumnut image was perfect for decorating the white writing panel:ย 

And to personalise the card for a gorgeous girl who was turning ten, I added die-cut numbers in silver:ย 

This Couture Creations Embossing Folder (Gumnuts) added subtle texture and dimension to the card front:

MEANWHILE I was excited to find these fun crocheted hanging hand towels on theย One Day Closer to Rain (Drought) – Rural Cottage Crafts Facebook page! ๐Ÿ™‚ I ordered 3 to replace some of my nearly threadbare ones!

Thanks so much for visiting me on this Easter long weekend; it’s always lovely to have you here ๐Ÿ™‚ If you have any questions please ask and I hope this has given you a little inspiration!ย  Megan xo
