The Very Hungry Caterpillar using Layered Letters Alphabet Stamp set

I'm totally overwhelmed by the response my latest card design has generated. So I wanted to say a BIG thank you to everyone who has commented and shared my card around the various photo sites! 
I thought this card really deserves its own post so here in more detail is how I made this Very Hungry Caterpillar card.

Believe it or not I didn't set out to make a caterpillar card! I was inking up and stamping the cool wonky circle from the Layered Letters Alphabet stamp as background for my "Live, Love, Craft" card and as I was overlapping the circles that is when I had that lightbulb moment. {Ding!}
I actually said  "I could make a caterpillar...wait a minute these colours match the Very Hungry Caterpillar!! Oh my!"

So here it is again, my Very Hungry Caterpillar card in the 2015-2017 In Colours.
Cucumber Crush, Mint Macaron & Watermelon Wonder with Tip Top Taupe feet and Delightful Dijon eyes!
The NEW In Colours are just a perfect match for this famous book character!
This is going to be such a popular stamp set!!

Carolina's Tip's and Techniques
I used some of the other letters and characters in the alphabet set to create the extra little pieces on my Hungry Caterpillar - the letter 'V' for the antennae, the exclamation dot '!' for the nose, and the letter 'I' for the legs - here's how...

Thank you so much once again for all your support!!


  1. What a super-fun, super-creative card, Carolina! Thanks for sharing your talent.

  2. Too too cute! This was a favorite book in our house twenty some years ago - my youngest called it the very hungry catapipper! Thank you so much for bringing back a fond memory:-) And thank you for the "how to" as well:-)

    1. Thanks Elisha, thats a beautiful story, my kids literally ate the book as babies!!

  3. I love this idea! I taught Kindergarten for 32 years, and Eric Carle was a favorite author. Will be making this card for some of my friends. Thanks for sharing! - Ann

  4. Thank you for sharing (and creating) your cute card!!!!!! I love how you can come up with ideas that were not part of the intended purpose.
