  1. Hi Darlene, I love your card! I am wondering if you would consider selling you Furry Folk stamp set now that it is retired. If you are interested, will you email me please? Thanks!

      Martha, I will be putting a bunch of my SU sets for sale this week – I think Furry Folk will be part of it (I’m still debating whether I can part with it!). Stay tuned for a post soon.

  2. i just LOVE your little peekaboo windows!

  3. Just discovered your blog and am back tracking and watching your videos as well. This card is so adorable – for anyone! I have loved this set since it first came out and may now have to make a purchase – oh darn! Love your article, instructions, cards and videos. Thanks for all the effort that you put into this – most appreciated.

    What another absolute wonderful creation Darlene!!!! I look forward to Wednesdays so that I can hop over to your blog and see your latest video/creation 🙂 Thanks so much for all of the time that you must put into doing this for us! I have one question–I noticed that in the video you use the clear mount stamps without any issues at all–barely having to use pressure to get them to stay on even. Is there a trick to this? I don’t have too many issues with the larger stamps but the smaller ones I do! I have been leaving the clear sticker off so that I KNOW they will stay on but I really do love having the image sticker on. Any tips would be greatly appreciated 🙂 Thanks again!

  6. I absolutely love this card, it is so adorable and perfect for a child’s birthday! Thank you for the inspiration.

  7. Darlene you have to be the best at coloring with copics! Seriously, I love your videos and I have learned sooooo much from them. I know they probably take a lot of time to do, but they really are an inspiration to the rest of us! Thank you for all your hard work in putting them together. I too have the same book and it was a little intimidating at first but I really do like the fact that I can take the ideas and them make them mine. Again, thanks for everything you do! Ciao db:)

  8. Cutest idea ever!!!

  9. As always, visiting your blog is such a treat. I love this card and appreciate all the time you take to share all the details.

  10. Darlene….you’ve done it again! No joke, I saw this on my Facebook feed yesterday and I had a stamp club to attend so I put Furry Folk on the order. How CUTE would this card be?!?!! I have a few more things on my wishlist now.

    I’m so scared of going down that Copic slippery slope but I have to say the finished product is pretty snazzy.

    Love your cards, you are an inspiration!

  11. Really adorable! BTW..nice bracelet too 🙂 Love how you shaded the little critters. So cute how you open the little windows in the wood & see the cute animals. Thanks also for the info on masking…it really made the scene come together so perfectly!

  12. What a fun card! Looks like a party on the inside! Thank you!

  13. Oh Wow! This is just DARLING! 😎 So glad I found your Blog and I just Love your creations and Wonderful Videos too! 😎


  14. Great card Darlene! The video was so fun to watch-I loved the balloon addition- perfect!

  15. Wow! Thanks so much for showing this card. My grandson turns 3 in February and he’ll love this card. I’ll be using the dinosaur images from SU as he’s into those at the moment. Can’t tell you how much your videos have helped me to start creating some decent cards again!
    Please keep up the great work – you really inspire me to get into my craft room and create. So thanks again.

  16. Could be my all-time favorite!!!!!

  17. I love it Darlene! How cute. I am sure all of my neices and nephews would love this card.

  18. AWESOME! love the copics and the cute little critters! Totally love the idea of using the blender pens to fill in the “gaps”! I just had that issue the other day, sooo glad you found a solution!!

  19. This is the sweetest little card ever Darlene! So so cute and beautifully coloured!

  20. Fantastic card! I’d be curious, however, to hear your objective review of the book you mentioned. There were only 7 reviews on Amazon and no one seemed to really like the book and several said they sent it back. I love doing cards with interesting folds, but does this book really have new and unique cards or can I find tutorials that are just as good or better on the Internet for free? LOL!

    • Darlene DeVries says:

      @Colorado – I can see how some people might not like this book. It doesn’t give any details at all. It’s mostly just sketches. I kind of look at it as inspiration – I fill in the detail holes to make it my own design. I find that sometimes you have to sift through a lot of stuff online to find what you are looking for. Having the book in my hands is a nice change. Some of the sketches I think may be challenging to implement because of the lack of detail. But, that’s part of the fun. In summary, if you’re looking for a step-by-step tutorial, this is not the book for you. If you are looking for a little inspiration to build on, it’s great.

  21. Wow! that is an awesome card. I would love to get a handmade card like that.

  22. I absolutely love your work, your style and your videos. Thanks for sharing!

  23. Kimberli Sarsfield says:

    How adorable! Those little furry guys are so dimensional once colored with Copics. Love this little interactive card!

  24. Megan McDonald says:

    I just love this card, so very cute. love the opening doors you make it look so simple.
    thanks again for another great video.

  25. Love it! I adore the little furry folks.

  26. This is so stinkin’ cute I laughed out loud. Anybody getting this card would be wearing a smile.

  27. I really like this card – your designs are too cool! The colors on the little animals and especially the cute grouping inside the card – brilliant!

  28. I read the article you had posted and thought I’d share with you my daughter’s blog. Many, many times she writes something similar and I thought you might find her writing interesting.

    I am the silver haired lady who says enjoy every moment, although if you were to ask my daughter, she’d say I certainly did not find every moment of every day worth enjoying. It is easy when looking back, not so easy while going through it.

    I loved your card this week, such cute little animals.

  29. This card is so cute, I could die! Seriously, LOVE it! Thank you so much for making and sharing the tutorial!

    I totally loved that article too! I remember a specific time when a woman in Target came up to me while my youngest was having a complete meltdown in the dollar spot and said, “Enjoy it, honey, it doesn’t get ANY better than this!” And all I could think was, ‘really? Because this sucks big time, and if it doesn’t get any better somebody better shoot me now.’

    Now I’ll be looking for and enjoying more Kairos moments.

  30. Ive wanted this book since I saw Kristina’s first video using this book! Love this card so much! It’s so cute!!! I look forward to your posts and videos every wednesday 🙂 keep up the amazing work 🙂

  31. I’m looking for the right word for your card, uhm, amazing, fabulous, so fun, cool, awesome….. Well, what I try to say is that I LOVE this card. I also have that book, I tried one time to make this card, I think in the book it has 6 windows, but I struggled. Now that I’ve seen your card, I totally want to try again. It’s perfect with images like this to make a birthday card for a kid, which I love to do. This is my new favorite card Darlene! Thanks for the inspiration!!


  1. […] What better way to use cute little critters in a cute little card?! This card measure 3.5″ x 3.5″, and the white panel is 3″ x 3″. I stamped the bunny and the chipmunk first, masked them with post-it label, then stamped the hedgehog, the raccoon and the owl. I then masked the hedgehog and stamped the tree. Colored all the critters with Copic markers. I got this idea from one of Darlene’s cards. She did a video on it too, you can see it here. […]
