Animal Outing You Rock!!!

Hi Stampers,

TGIF!!! At least I think so!!! I get every weekend off from work and this weekend we don't have any plans!!! I get to play this weekend and I am SOOOOO looking forward to it. Today's card is a little twist on the Animal Outing set. Instead of an animal stamp or die cut, I used the thinlit die from the set and die cut several of these out of the neutral browns and painstakingly placed inside the die cut to resemble a pebble stone walkway. I used the alphabet stamp set from the Pick A Pennant stamp set. I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment inside from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set (not pictured). I think this makes a great masculine card.

I hope this gives you some inspiration to come up with your own ideas/twists. This bundle is a MUST have in my opinion. Make sure you place it in your shopping bag today!!!

Happy shopping!!!

 


DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #286-Animal Outing

#286

Hi Stampers,

Finally, I am participating again in our DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenges. This week it is a showCASE challenge. They are based on "CASEing" (COPY AND SHARE EVERYTHING) a project from the catalog. This means you can use the same or similar layout, but change out the stamp set(s) and/or colors. You could also use the color as an inspiration. Basically, this challenge is showing ways you can be inspired by the catalog. As I am sticking with my week long blog posts of Animal Outing cards, this is what I came up with. I used the same layout but used different colors and stamp set.

It actually was quite an easy card. I just sponged color on with stampin sponges. I used the thinlit dies for the tree branches and giraffes (turned one around to face the other). I used the butterfly stamps from the Enjoy Life stamp set along with the grass silhouette. I think it is a very sweet card.

Make sure you check out the rest of the crew!!!


Balloon Celebrations Giraffe

Hi Stampers,

Back with another card using the Animal Outings stamp set. I am having so much fun with this stamp set. I have so many ideas in my head and my ink pads are NOT cooperating!!! For the giraffe spots background the splotch image in the Balloon Celebration stamp set works perfectly for this. However, my Cajun Craze ink pad would not get a clean image. I conditioned the stamp, reinked my inkpad, etcetera........ After about 6 tries this was the end result. I was getting tired. I still like how it turned out though. I used Cajun Craze ink on So Saffron cardstock.

I am ABSOLUTELY in love with the Leaf Ribbon trim. I am determined to use my embellishments instead of collect them this year.

I also found my blender pen and the coloring turned out  a lot better this time around.

Animal Outing Filmstrip

Hi Stampers,

When I went to OnStage in April of this year one of the stamp sets we got in our goodie bag was Animal Outing. I loved it from the first time I saw it. It was on my wish list for SU to come out with a new zoo animal stamp set and I was pleasantly surprised to find this stamp set in my bag.  Starting this week I want to highlight a stamp set each week with different card ideas/3D projects during each day for that week.

I also paired it with the new Stained Glass Thinlits to look like a filmstrip. I diecut two of the long strips and laid them horizontally. I also used a new in color Pineapple Punch with the matching DSP and the new leaf ribbon.
