Lions, Tigers & Bears, Oh My! Animal Cards

I’m participating in the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop today. The February theme is Lions, Tigers & Bears, Oh My! Stampin’ Up! has a wide variety of animal stamps so I know you will be inspired by all the fun, cute cards. I am using Foxy Friends as my animal stamp set. 

 Foxy Friends to the Rescue

It has been awhile since I inked up the Foxy Friends stamp set, and this blog hop gave me the opportunity to show these animal critters some inky love.

 Created by Ginny Harrell using foxy Friends by Stampin' Up! Ginny Harrell @ Celebrate-the-journey.com #stampn' up! #2018 Occasions Catalog #animal cards

To create this Foxy card you will start with a Cajun Craze card base. Cut a Whisper White panel – 5 3/8” x 4 1/8”. Run the card base through your Big Shot using the Woodlands embossing folder. Cut a piece of Old Olive cardstock at 5 3/8” x 2”. Cut the cardstock in a wavy line to make the “grass” for the bottom edge of the card. Use the grass stamp from High Tide to randomly stamp on the green cardstock. Attach this piece to the white layer. Stamp your Cajun Craze fox on Whisper White cardstock, punch out the pieces using the Fox Builder Punch. Ink up the Fox sentiment using a Basic Black marker and Cajun Craze marker. Punch the circle using the 1 ¾” circle punch. Use the Layering Circle framelits to cut a Cajun Craze scallop circle. Stamp the tree trunk on a scrap of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper. Fussy cut the trunk piece. Attached the tree trunk to the card front, assemble the fox and attach him to the card front. Use a dimensional to attach the sentiment to the top righthand side of the card front. Tie the Copper Trim ribbon around the bottom of the card. Attach the card front to the card base. Your Foxy card is now complete!

 You can have a Foxy Animal Baby also!

While this set was sitting on my desk I decided to make two baby cards, just because. I love babies!

To create the background on these cards you will start with Petal Passion Designer Series Paper. Use your Sponge Brayer to color the DSP, either Flirty Flamingo or Marina Mist. Black and white paper is so easy to customize with a Sponge Brayer. Stamp the sweet raccoon with Smoky Slate and Basic Black ink, cut the circle using a Stitched Framelit and mount it on a piece of cardstock that has been cut using the Layering Circles Framelits. Add some embellishments and ribbon of your choice and assemble your card. Easy Peasy card making!

I hope these animal cards have made you smile today. Please take the time to hop on to our next stamper. You won’t want to miss all the animal projects my fellow demo friends have created.

RemARKably Created Mix & Match Blog Tour

Mix & Match Blog Tour

The RemARKably Created Blog Tour is focusing on Mix and Match with your stamps and accessories.We are using products from the 2018 Occasions Catalog and matching it up with products from the Annual Catalog. I love when you can mix old with new. It gives you a fresh new look from stamps you may already own. Stretching your supplies is also a bonus of Mix & Match.

Truly Tailored Matched with Guy Greetings

Today I am sharing tags created with the Truly Tailored Bundle (2018 Occasions Catalog) mixed and matched with Guy Greetings (Annual Catalog). A match made in guy heaven! One can never have too many masculine products.

True Gentleman Designer Series Paper has the perfect color palette,

The Designer Series Paper in this suite gives you the perfect color palette as a starting point. Stamp all your images; fussy cut, die cut or punch the elements and assemble your tags. The more mixy-matchy the better.

Are you a Georgia Bulldog?

Sorry, one tag is not in the same color family as the others. I had to get some University of Georgia red & black on one of the tags.

Stitched shapes add a masculine feel to these tags. The stitching reminds me of a tailored dress shirt or suit.

The Tailored Tag punch also pairs well with the Scalloped Tag Topper punch.

Purchase the Truly Tailored Bundle, add on the Designer Series Paper & Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon and you will qualify for a FREE Sale-a-bration items. That is shopping smart in my book. For your convenience I have listed the supplies for these projects are listed below.

CASEing the Catalog for Day 7

Today is the last Truly Tailored day and I am CASEing the catalog. Pages 44 and 45 in the 2018 Occasions Catalog are full of masculine inspiration.

I chose this card because it uses almost every side of the natty True Gentleman DSP. This card is also quick and easy. Make a bunch to keep on hand for birthdays.

Notice I didn’t have the wooden buttons, so I used one of the corrugated elements. Sometimes we just have to get innovative.

I hope you have a stampingly fun weekend!

Lookin’ Sharp on Day 6

Truly Tailored Day 6. We are getting closer to the end of a Truly Tailored week. Today I have combined two stamp sets to create a Lookin’ Sharp card. Truly Tailored and Pocketful of Sunshine play well together.

       

Do you wear glasses? If you do I bet you can remember how sharp and clear everything looked when you got your first pair of glasses. I was astounded to see leaves on trees.  

This card is Lookin’ Sharp with some jaunty glasses peeking out of the pocket. The Simple Stripes Embossing folder makes the Very Vanilla cardstock look like a dress shirt.

If you want to make this card more feminine just change out the DSP. It would work just fine.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by today. Come back tomorrow for our last day of Truly Tailored creations.

Truly Tailored Day 5

Day 5 of Truly Tailored brings us to another Dapper Day card. I love that saying – “Have a Dapper Day.” It reminds me of bow ties, tuxedos, and Model T Fords!

The sentiment, simple layout and bow tie make this an easy card to duplicate.

I like the three small squares at the bottom showing off the lovely designer series paper. What do you think?

Cooking Up a Card with Truly Tailored and Apron of Love

Welcome to Day 4 of Truly Tailored cards. I hope you are enjoying these cards as much as I enjoyed creating them.

This fun card combines Apron of Love stamp set with True Gentleman Designer Series Paper. Perfect for the BBQ King in your life. I made this as a Father’s Day card but it can easily be a birthday card. Apron of Love also makes wonderful cards for females who like to barbeque or cook. Just pick the colors and designer paper that suits the recipient. I love when a set is mutli-purpose.

Check out all those cute tools in the pocket. Die cut Silver Foil cardstock makes them so shiny and realistic.

One additional bonus: All those tiny pieces are cut with one die. No more little dies to lose on your messy desk. Apron Builder Framelits rock!!

Thanks for taking the time to stop by today. Happy stamping!
