Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – it’s a Theme Challenge from the talented LeAnne this week and it’ll for sure jump-start your creative mojo! I hope you’ll come and play along. 🙂
If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me! If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!
When I saw the theme for this week, I first thought “giraffe”. Loves me some giraffes. But then I remembered that I also kinda love elephants. So…I pulled out the sweet Wildly Happy stamp set and a few die sets and….take a look-see:
And here’s this week’s Paper Players Theme challenge! Hope you’ll challenge your inner zoologist and join the fun and show us your projects! I can’t wait to see what you create! 🙂
And the layout is from the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge this week!
This one is just a few die cuts and some stamping – easy peasy! So…here we go!
I started with a panel of Whisper White and, in the bottom corner, I stamped the sweet little sentiment from the Wildly Happy set in Granny Apple Green. Then I ran the panel thru the die cutting/embossing machine in the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder. I matted the panel on Daffodil Delight for the card front.
Using Liquid Glue, I adhered an Ornate Layers rectangle die cut from Granny Apple Green Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP.
The next layer – from the Stitched So Sweetly die set – is cut from Daffodil Delight DSP (also in the Brights pack) and adhered with Liquid Glue.
For the art, I stamped the sweet elephant mama and baby in Gray Granite on Whisper White and cut it with a square Stitched Shapes Die. Then I colored them with my Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack and popped them onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I added a Granny Apple Green Glitter Enamel Dot and, with a Glue Dot, a small bow tied from Daffodil Delight 1/4″ Ruched Ribbon and the card front was done!
On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Wildly Happy in Granny Apple Green on a Whisper White panel. A Daffodil Delight-matted strip of Granny Apple Green Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP across the bottom finished it off.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Daffodil Delight mat and into my Granny Apple Green card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got mom and kid on the front…
…and some Daffodil Delight Brights 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap!
Et Voila! Wildly Happy is such a sweet little stamp set – with four different little “families” and several nice sentiments in beautiful fonts!
And the Tufted background, Ornate Layers, Stitched So Sweetly and Stitched Shapes all worked to give this card lots of texture and fun, don’t you think? This exact card could be made more gender-specific just by picking different DSP and ink colors – and any of the four animals groupings would make for an adorable card! I hope you like!
