Hi and welcome to my Paper Adventures Team Blog Hop Post! This blog hop is showcasing an animal theme which I thought would be pretty fun. Sometimes I find incorporating animals into my cards a little difficult as they tend to have unique shapes and I feel inclined to make them the feature of the card. I decided I would make some simpler cards today which I actually find more difficult.
Note: This blog post contains products purchased from Stampin’ Up!®. The latest catalogue is here.
For my first card I used the Petal Passion DSP with Basic Black and Whisper White cardstock. I stamped the images from the Hedghugs stamp set with Soft Seude and Crumb Cake ink. To finish off this card I put the sentiment up on dimensionals, used the retired Stitched Shapes framelits and added some bling by using some Rhinestone Basic Jewel embellishments.
For my second card I decided I would make an eclipse card which is raising cutouts to create a shadow effect. I used Real Red cardstock which I used the Party Pandas stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue to stamp using VersaMark Ink and, as you can see, is just too cute. I used White Embossing Powder on the pandas and the "Love You" sentiments which I then used the Large Letter framelits to cut out "LOVE" and used dimensionals to lift the letters up. To finish this off I embellished with a Bitty Bow.
I wanted to show a card I previously made for a freind of mine which is also an eclipse card. I created it for my friends son who turned 3 just recently. I used the Barnyard Babies and Skinny Mini Alphabet stamp sets which are both unfortunately retired now with the Thoughtful Banners stampset for the sentiments. I cut out the "3RD" using the Large Letters and Large Numbers framelits from the Whisper White cardstock set on Dapper Denim cardstock layer. I used the Classic Label punch to create the chevrons for the sentiments
