I actually stamped today! After meeting up with some friends for the kids to play today, and while my mom and stepdad were getting ready for the wedding they are in town for, I was able to make a card for a little boy's birthday party tonight.
His theme was "Go Diego". Since I don't have any Diego stamps, I figured the next best thing was a jungle theme. So, I pulled out some new High Hopes stamps, paired it with Monkey Love and made a little jungle.
I used Chocolate Chip for the Card Base. I matted that with Creamy Caramel stamped with SU Sanded and Polka Dots Background stamps in caramel ink. I inked up the edges with chocolate chip and roughed it up with my sissors. I added some linen thread with a few knots on the left side.
For the image, I used two new High Hopes Stamps "Elmer Elephant" and "Jungle Leaves Corner" I paired those up with CC Designs Monkey Love. I embossed the leaves and the monkey onto a piece of Whisper White CS. I watercolored them then highlighted them with my SU markers. I created a sky using a scallop punch to create clouds and watercolored the grass. The elephant was embossed on a separate sheet, watercolored, highlighted with markers, then cut out and attached to the card with dimensionals. I roughed up the edges and attached the image to the card base. On the inside, I used two sentiments "Wishing you wonderful adventures" from High Hopes and "Happy Birthday" from SU Sassy Suzie (monday is the last day you can order Sassy Suzie from the SU Mini Catalog).
I really loved how this came out!! And even though these animals are from different companies, they worked well together.
Now, I also have a "sneak peak" at my new tool that I mentioned earlier...
Thanks for stopping by!
