Hi and welcome!  I'm on a mission to use up my NBUS stamps and I have a few of them!  This card uses two Clearly Besotted sets I've had since their release and only using them now.  I created this card using the sketch from MFT, the selfie theme at City Crafter and the Cute cue word at CASology.

I stamped, colored and die-cut various images from Caped Cuties and Hooray for Heroes sets and then set about making a polaroid frame using a square and rectangle die.  I positioned the images and adhered them, with the polaroid frame to a Soft Stone card base.

The sentiment is the Big Hello die from MFT, using Soft Navy cardstock and popped up on dimensionals.

Thanks for visiting.

Products used:

Stamps:  Caped Cuties, Hooray for Heroes (Clearly Besotted)
Ink:  Black Licorice Hybrid
Cardstock:  Soft Stone (PTI), Soft Navy (SSS), White
Dies:  Big Hello (MFT), Square and Rectangle Nestabilities, Capied Cuties, Hooray for Heroes
Accessories:  Copics


Edited to Add:  This card got a shout out at City Crafter

So adorable, Karren! I can't believe they all managed to line up and smile for the selfie! (Well, except for that silly cop ~ there's one in every crowd!) Hugs, Darnell

The cutest "selfie" I've ever seen ...Those little guys are so sweet and fun. The XXL sentiment is the perfect match for them. A very clever take on both challenges !
