Studio Monday with Nina-Marie: Cuddly Critters for Mom

Cuddle Critters for Mom_3

Hi there everyone, it’s Nina-Marie here with you for a brand new Studio Monday post! This week we are featuring Simon Says Stamp products in a sweet, mom-themed card using new stamps and dies from our most recent My Favorite release!

For this card I’ve pulled out the adorable Cuddly Critters, Cuddly Critters Accessories and Mother’s Day Zingers stamp and die sets. I love the fun greetings included in the Mother’s Day Zingers; they are so fun! I chose to use the “you’re my favorite mom” greeting, as this would allow me to have the flexibility of being able to use this card at any point in the year and just just for Mother’s Day.

The critters from Cuddly Critters are so super cute and I couldn’t resist the chubby koala bear! As I was making the card, my original intent was to just use the koala; however about halfway through, he was looking quite lonely, so I gave him a little mouse friend from Cuddly Critters Accessories… and I think he looks much happier now! ;)
