When I first saw Henry the Hamster, I knew what I wanted to do with him. What do you think of when you see a hamster? Wheels, tunnels, twitchy whiskers, a hamster ball on the move! I had to give Henry some action and make him look like he was popping out of a tunnel!


I stamped the image twice, colored with Copics, then hand cut the top portion. I made a “spring” out of wire and attached the 2 pieces. It’s really cute to make it jiggle, but hard to photograph!


I cut 2 circles with ODBD Circles dies for the “tunnel”, added some fun balloons from ODBD Balloons & Streamers dies, and ODBD Bitty Borders dies, all from ODBD Birthday Brights Collection and Birthday Bash Collection.


I added Happy Birthday die to the inside. 


My granddaughter, Leah, brought her hamster, Hidy, over for a photoshoot! I think Hidy liked Henry!!




Ok, I could share Hidy and Henry pics all day, but on to the others in the release!

Meet, Peaches the Parrot!


I’ve always wanted a Macaw, this is probably the closest I’ll get to owning one!

She’s embossed and colored with Copics, layered on NCC Vine die, ODBD Ornate Ovals dies, and the base is dry embossed with ODBD Art Deco .


And I just have to share this cute Surprise Box I made and sent to a dear friend’s young grandson who is undergoing chemo. These dinosaurs from You Are Dino-Mite are just too cute!


Each colored with Copics and cut with the Dinosaur dies! I also used ODBD Birthday Brights paper, Log Cabin Quilt, Grass Lawn, and Double Stitched Squares.



Can you tell I had a little fun with these?! One more!


Hippity Hoppity was a previous release but the Bunny die is new! He’s so cute!! Here is the Lever card I made.


Colored with Copics, clouds sponged using handmade stencil. Also used ODBD Fence, Grass Lawn, Grass Hill, and Flower Box and Fillers dies.



All the NCC October info can be found here, and check out my sister Coasters and their awesome creations!

These are wonderful, Dawn! Love your little model, too, lol. When my DD was little, she had hamsters...we never could get the stupid hamster wheel to stop squeaking & you know how they love to run in it all night long! Love your surprise box dinos & the fancy fold bunny card.

Swoon! Your cards are amazing, but I think Hidy definitely stole the show! How darling! Hidy looks JUST LIKE my daughter's little Hamster Cheeky! You've captured the playfulness and inquisitiveness of a hamster with your cards design :) And your exploding box is out of this world! Super fun card creations - TFS and Blessings! ♥
