Stamping 411 Fox and Friends

October 17, 2011

I decided to play along with the sketch challenge at Stamping 411 this week and make a children’s card.

I cut 1″ strips of striped Daffodil Delight Designer Paper from the Brights Pattern Designer Series Paper Stack, attached them to 1 1/4″ strips of Daffodil Delight card stock and then to the Whisper White card stock.  I stamped the lion image from the Fox and Friends stampset onto Whisper White card using Pumpkin Pie ink and cut the image out.

I stamped the giraffe image onto Whisper White card using Daffodil Delight ink and cut the image out.  I stamped the owl and the monkey onto Whisper White card using Early Expresso ink and cut both images out.  I attached the lion, giraffe and owl to a piece of Whisper White card stock and stamped happy birthday from the Happiest Birthday Wishes stampset using Early Expresso ink.  I attached the Whisper White card stock to a layer of Pumpkin Pie card stock.  The image panel was then attached to the Whisper White card stock over the top of the Designer Paper panels using dimensionals.  I wrapped this piece with Pumpkin Pie 1/4″ Grosgrain ribbon.  I hung the monkey from the ribbon and then attached a bow tied from the same ribbon using a Mini Glue Dot.  The whole piece was then attached to scored and folded Early Expressso card stock.

I cut the animal images out rather than stamping them straight onto the Whisper White card stock because I think it gives it just a little more dimension and definition.

I love the way this card turned out.  What do you think?

Bye for now, Kris.
