Animals Everywhere!

I loved the Animal Expedition bundle as soon as I saw it.  I hadn't thought about the versatility until I started playing with it.  I had so much fun!

There is the adorable bundle and also matching dsp called Animal Expedition.  Did you know that you can cut the images from the dsp with the dies?  You can even do a mirror image by placing the die on the back side of the dsp.  Just hold it up to a light to line it up  I saw that trick on a Frenchie Stamps video.  Brilliant!!  You will see the giraffe image cut both left and right below.  Also, you might notice the Subtle Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder on the background.  On the rhino, I inked it up with Crumb Cake and ran it through the Big Shot.  The giraffe card was not inked up.

The rhino was for a class card.  I gave everyone the choice of cutting the dsp or stamping the animal and coloring it in.  Most chose the cutting method.  In the last card, I stamped the giraffe and lightly colored in.  What would you choose?

Thinking of you

I saw this awesome fold on a Facebook live  by Karen Titus (Stamping on the Back Porch).  I’m not sure I did it exactly like she did, but I started with a panel of Tranquil Tide cut at 4-1/4 x 5-1/2.  Then I cut a piece of Share What You Love dsp.  This is an amazing card stock weight dsp.  This fold shows both sides of the pretty paper.  I cut it at 8 x 4” and scored at 4 and adhered it on the panel. I stamped the stump from Rooted in Nature in Crumb Cake and edged it with Early Espresso, then I stamped the sentiment in Versamark and heat embossed with Stampin’ White embossing powder.  I fussy cut it and adhered half of it on the dsp and added some Nature's Twine.  A 3-1/2 x 3-1/2 piece of Whisper White was added to the inside for my greeting and I finished by stamping a leaf.  The Rooted in Nature is such a versatile bundle!   Check out my previous post here: Rooted
