GIRAFFE PARADE WITH ANIMAL OUTING!

I made this card a few months ago and I forgot to show you.  This was the first card I made with this Animal Outing set way back then.  I have to say I wasn’t overly wrapped in the card.  Maybe that’s why I filed it away in the “forget about it” box. 🙂  Anyway, maybe you like it – and not all our cards can be super-wonderful.  Not that I think many of my cards are super-wonderful. 😉

So here we are.  I call it my Giraffe parade.

I stamped 3 of the giraffes from Animal Outing across a piece of white card and coloured them with the Stampin’ Blends.  I outlined the giraffes with the grey Blend. It helps them stand out. After that I wasn’t sure what to do with it.  I embossed a piece of Silver Foil Sheet with the Hexagons Embossing Folder.  To assemble it I adhered a strip of the Pumpkin Pie card under the foil and matted the Giraffes on some Pumpkin Pie card.   The sentiment was stamped on a Thick Whisper card base and then Rhinestones were added to finish. 

They look happy anyway don’t they. 🙂

Thanks for looking,

STAMPIN’ DREAMS BLOG HOP – ANNUAL CATALOGUE SNEAK PEEK!

Today I am joining in the Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop.  It is all about the new Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek so you are in for a treat.  I am sure there are some lovely creations everyone will share today.  You might be starting here or you have just come from Elaine’s blog -> HERE.

Today I am focusing on the new Bundle Sitting Pretty.

I have created 2 cards with this Bundle.  I really like the seat Dies in the Pretty Park Framelits set.

I have used the gorgeous Share What You Love Designer Series Paper.  The card base is the new Incolor Grapefruit Grove.  For both of them I used sentiments from the set Eastern Beauty stamp set.  I kept the layout similar for both cards.

For the top card I cut the bench seat in Black Cardstock.  For the little bird I stamped it in black and stamped the inside of the bird in Mint Macaron.  You don’t even need to colour it with the markers or pencils.  Just a tip though: I stamped the inside of the bird twice turning the stamp slightly each time to give a little more cover in the inking.  It’s a little hard to know how to stamp it. Now don’t bother trying to cut this tiny bird with scissors.  You can cut it with the matching die!

On the card below I have used the lovely Velvet Rich Razzleberry Ribbon. For this set I stamped the ornate seat in Rich Razzleberry ink on Rich Razzleberry card.  This was then cut out with the matching die.  I also cut a heart in Silver Glimmer Paper with the heart die. 

I hope you like them.
