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,

WATCH IT WEDNESDAY #12 – USING THE 3D TEXTURED IMPRESSIONS EMBOSSING FOLDERS!

For this week’s WATCH IT WEDNESDAY #12 I came across this video from Stampin’ Up! using the 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folders.  There are a number of these in the catalogue along with the regular Embossing Folders.

There are a couple of tips to remember when using the 3D ones that I thought it might be good to share this with you to help you get a deeper, crisper impression on your card.  I hope you find this helpful.

I don’t know about you but I always forget to mist my card when I am using these folders.

Now this video used the lovely Layered Leaves but this week two of the 3D folders are on special for Extravaganza week.  These are the Cable Knit and the Hexagons 3D.

The Cable Knit folder is 30% off this week at $11.90.  See that in store->HERE.

The Hexagons Folder is 10% off at $14.40.  See that in store -> HERE.

Shop for these or any other of the products reduced during Extravaganza week from 20th – 27th November.  See all the details in the previous blog post.
