Now on to the cards I'm sharing today. I made two cards featuring the adorable images from Celebrate Life and Celebrate Friendship stamp sets.  These are large 6"x8" sets that are jam packed with cute critters and accessories for them.  



For this first card I used Celebrate Friendship.  I wanted to build a country scene with the cow and sunflowers.  I loved the little bees and apples so I included those too.  


For the greeting I used the Celebrate Sentiments set which coordinates perfectly and has some fun puns to go with the animals.  The red mat for this card is Tonic's Candy Red Classic Card which I think is a perfect shade of red for fall and holiday cards.  


I used the Nuvo Alcohol Markers to color all the images.  The white card stock I used is Tonic's Ultra Smooth Card. The Nuvo Alcohol Markers blend beautifully on the this super smooth card stock.  


For my second card, I wanted to create a party scene using the playful images in the Celebrate Life set.  This card is a slimline design that measures 3.5" wide by 8.5" long.  


This scene came together easily and was so fun to build. There are many different clothing and accessory options for the animals. I love the versatility of these sets.  For coloring these images I again used the Nuvo Alcohol Markers. (Rosy Pinks, Royal Purples, Marina Blues, Emerald Seas, Irish Clover, Sunshine Yellows, Fair Skin Tones, Apricot Ombre, Rich Reds, Natural Browns, Pebble Beach, Stromy Greys)
