Hi everyone! Thanks for checking out the blog hop for LDRS Creative. I hope you’ve been enjoying all the new items and get inspired to create. I have a project using the new stamp set called Super Critters! It’s one of the new interactive stamp sets that was showcased at Creativation and I personally think it’s super cute.

I was drawn to the raccoon because it’s pretty adorable and it’s actually a critter I don’t see often in stamp sets. This particular raccoon is the image that has an interactive element to it.

I stamped the main image and the interactive body part (tail and leg) using Raven hybrid ink, which you can use with alcohol markers and watercolor. For the main image, you don’t need to color the tail and the left leg since you actually trim this portion off.

The interactive body part goes right behind the main image and is held together by a brad. I only had a star brad around, and this is ok because it looks like a little tattoo on the raccoon.

I used a few of the smaller images from the set to create a background scene. Using a pencil, I filled out the rest, including a little fence so the raccoon with her two paws could be looking over something.

Once I finish drawing everything in, I used an alcohol marker friendly pen to outline all the areas I drew in. I went ahead and colored everything bringing the scene to life.

For the main raccoon, I added a little bit of foam tape behind his head and behind his right leg. The foam tape gives the image enough dimension so that the brad and his tail and leg could move freely.

To finish off this card, I added the sentiment “You’ve Stolen My Heart”. I also used the little hearts from the Scalloped Rectangle Die and cut hearts from red glitter cardstock. It adds a cute touch to the card and corresponds to the sentiment.

I love how it turned out and I’m loving the movement. Check out the card in action over on my instagram!

Thanks for stopping by! Come back again soon for some more inspiration and ideas!
