It’s a double trouble Animal Outing!
Welcome to my blog and the Go For Greece Blog Hop. We are a group of demonstrators in a training/mentoring group call “Go For Greece”, organised and headed up by the fabulous Kylie Bertucci. Being part of this group has made me a better demonstrator and my customers and team members benefit from the things I learn and put into practice.
New in the Stampin’ Up! 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue, Animal Outing is a fun stamp set which can be used for multiple purposes. This card could be a baby card (someone suggested a great card for twin babies), or a “welcome to the neighbourhood card”
This stamp set does have coordinating dies. However, I don’t have the dies yet, so I fell back on my trusty pair of snips (not literally!) and fussy cut the giraffes and the leaves. Those leaves are not a task for the faint-hearted. Thankfully, there is a die for the leaves in the Animal Friends die set.
Bundle includes Animal Outing Stamp Set and Animal Friends Thinlits Dies.
Bundle pricing AUD$78.25 for clear mount rubber or AUD$90.00 for wood mount rubber
Other design elements …
Co-ordinate background paper and cardstock – I have used Call Me Clover (one of the new 2018-2019 In Colors from Stampin’ Up! for the folded card base. With the new 6″ x 6″ designer series paper stacks in all the colour ranges, you will be able to coordinate your patterned paper with your cardstock with ease.
Blended colouring – I have used Stampin’ Blends to colour my giraffes and leaves. Even the smallest images will benefit from a little blending. Giraffes are stamped with Memento Black Ink and coloured with Daffodil Delight Light and Dark blends! And the leaves are stamped with Call me Clover ink and coloured with Old Olive Light and Dark blends. I am impatiently waiting for the new Stampin’ Blends colours to be here, which will add more greens to the range, including Call Me Clover and Granny Apple Green! Yay!!!
Double trouble – What is better than one giraffe? Two giraffes of course! So I doubled up the “welcome” greeting as well and repeated the circle elements on the card front.
Big Shot Embossing Mats – The largest circle element is die cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. This is the largest circle die from that set. I couldn’t get a stitched circle die to fit the Welcome, Welcome greeting, so I used the 1-1/2″ Circle Punch. To give it some “framing”, I used the new Big Shot Embossing Mats and a circle die from the Layering Circle Framelits that is slightly smaller than the punched shape (1-3/8″ or 3.5cm diameter circle die). It sort of looks like a paper plate now but it does frame the circle nicely. 🙂
