Here's how I was inspired:
For my first card, I decided to just use the face parts and bunny ears. I love that there are SO many dies in this set that can be used in so many different combinations!
I colored the inside of the ears and added a little blush to the bunny's cheeks with my Copics. I arranged her face on the base until I was pleased with the look and then glued it all down. Then I used the 4 Petals Fri-Dies and the Garden Fri-Dies to cut some brightly colored flowers along with some sparkly embellishments from my stash to add a floral wreath to her head.
And I built my sentiment from the Somebunny stamp set! The sentiments are perfect to use along with the Huggable Critters!
And then I did this:
SO cute, right?? I die cut the body of the critter and then adhered it over the corner of my base. Then I just trimmed off along the edges of the card.
It was fun and quick to cut all of the pieces for this cutie! I also added some spots to him... I cut another body in black and then cut a rounded piece off of the upper edge to add a spot to his head with the stitched edge. For the bottom left spot, I just used a black piece of paper with a straight edge and cut another curve (since this edge had the stitching trimmed off). For his waving paw, I added his little pink pads to his feet and his left hand was in the perfect position to hold that pretty flower. The stem is from the Garden Fri-Dies and the flower is from 4 Petals.
And for this sentiment I used the Greetings from the Autumn Blessings Stamp Set and the Friend Fri-Dies.
I love the various eyes, nose, mouth, ear, paw, and even tail choices there are...wait 'til you see what everyone has made for you today! They are all different and all adorable..not to mention a little "wild"!
