Visible Image "Nuts About Squirrels" Birthday Card

I apologise for my absence, I've been away on holiday for a fortnight, so today I am back to my crafting, catching up on Birthday cards that are needed for the next couple of weeks.

Our Grand Son will be five in a week or so.  As he gets very excited to see the red squirrels visit our garden, it seemed only right to pop one on his birthday card.

I've used two Visibiel Image stamp sets for this card.  "Nuts about squirrels" and "Totally Toadstools".  I also used the Visible Image "Supernova" stencil.

I used a selection of Versafine Clair ink pads to stamp the images.

I used a selection of Distress Oxide Inks to create the coloured background.

To colour the stamped images, I used Derwent Inktense Water Colour Pencils, I added further details using Van Goch Pastel Pencils and a white gel pen.

Finally, for the sentiment, I used a Lawn Fawn stamp from their "Simply Sentiments" stamp set, stamped in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink.


  1. This is such a sweet red squirrel image and backed by this super bright toadstool too, and the stencil makes a great background, and you've brought it altogether really well with the grass, sky and foliage Sam. Your grandson will be absolutely delighted with this! x

  2. We had a great time. The time in Madrid was not so good as I had a bug which wiped out over half of our time there. But the week in Tenerife made up for it x
