Fussy cutting - SSS Cute and Cuddly

Since I've discovered - and am enjoying - coloring and blending with colored pencils, I've been using a lot more of my stamps.  I guess I always steered clear of the stamps that I had to color, but there were some that I bought anyway because they are so fun.  This is a great example of that.  I bought Stampin Up's "From the Herd" about a year ago and never used it.  There's just so much coloring!  

A few weeks ago I stamped a few of the images on white cardstock and colored while watching tv. Having a plan, I crazily started fussy cutting some of the animals.  All I could think was "Wow! What did I get myself into?" 

With so much coloring, blending and cutting, this certainly wasn't a project that I completed in one sitting. But it was fun, nonetheless.  The animals have so much expression on their little faces that they just called my name everytime I saw them!  I finally finished the card on Sunday. 

I think the card turned out great.  I accidentally messed up one of the corners of the turquoise cardstock and am so glad that I did!  The folded corners kinda brings it together.  

While it's hard to see in this photo that my mom took, the bird, goat, rooster and pig are popped out with dimensionals.  As is the speech bubble (Lawn Fawn, Into the Woods).  The card base is kraft cardstock.  

Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Blog Challenge is all about Cute and Cuddly animals this week. While some may say that farm animals shouldn't be cute and cuddly, I think these guys would be.  

Now I'm off to do some more fussy cutting!
