For my first card I used Friendly Pets stamp set (P. 87 Annual Inspirations 2015–2016 idea book). It is a quick and easy to create. Let’s take a look at how to make this card!

To start off, I randomly stamped a cat image from Friendly Pets stamp set using light gray pigment ink on a 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 A2 CTMH’s white daisy cardstock (P. 157 Annual Inspirations 2015–2016 idea book). Next I stamped a cat and dog image from Friendly Pets stamp set with CTMH’s Exclusive Black Inks pad (P. 157 Annual Inspirations 2015–2016 idea book) on another piece of white daisy cardstock. Then I used Zig Clean Real Brush markers for coloring. After that I fussy cut it and taped it down on the center of paper. Lastly I stamped the sentiments from Friendly Pets stamp set with Exclusive Black Inks pad. That’s it!

Next I used watercolor pint for coloring. After that I stamped a sentiment from Bitty Birthday stamp set (P. 12 Seasonal Expressions 2 May–August 2016) using Exclusive Black Inks pad on the paper.

I started off with a 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 A2 CTMH’s white daisy cardstock (P. 157 Annual Inspirations 2015–2016 idea book).

Next, I stamped a girl and flower images from Lovely Garden stamp set on the other white daisy cardstock using a Exclusive Black Inks pad. And then I colored them and cut them out.
