Hello AI fans!! 
These new Mouthfuls are so adorable!! My tutorial features the Hamster Mouthful set. I started by stamping the images on white cardstock and coloring them with my Spectrum Noir Markers. I used AG1, AG3, AG5, CT1, CT4, GY2, GY5, IB2, IB3, TN2, Blender. As I was coloring I decided what images I would use with the Hamster, so ended up only coloring them.

Next, I held the dies in place with washi tape and ran it through my die cutting machine. With sharp scissors, I fussy cut out the hamster. The hamster has two dies, one you can cut a slit for his mouth like I did or the other cuts a slit above his hands. Tip #1 I also when ahead and cut the ones I didn't end up coloring for use at a later date!! And tip #2, I never had a hamster so was very unsure of the coloring, after looking at Google the options where overwhelming! So I just copied how the packaging colored him and kept it simple!!

With a little bit of glue, I adhered the candles to his face, sliding it under the die cut slit. This way it looks like he is eating the candles.

For a background, I die cut a stitched rectangle from watercolor card stock and with an ink applicator added Distress Oxide Cracked Pistachio. Then I splattered water all over the panel and let that dry. Next, I added some water to some Frayed Burlap Distress Ink and splattered it over the panel.

While my splatters where drying I cut a strip of grey cardstock and stamped the What Cake? in brown ink. I adhered the green panel to a grey card base when it was dry and then I played around with the placement of the sentiment, hamster, cheese and his hat.

When I was happing with the placement I adhered the grey strip and added foam tape to the hamster and cheese.

A quick shot of it all put together. 

These stamp sets have lots of uses with different sentiments and images that you can mix and match! And what's really nice is being able to customize where the accessory image can be tucked into to!!!

Thanks for stopping by!! Happy Stamping!!

TOO CUTE, Dana! Love how your hamster is all ready for some birthday festivities!
