I stamped, colored and cut the monsters from Lawn Fawn and attached them with dimensional squares to each card and they are as cute as can be.

Giraffes

Hello everyone.
It another Technique Challenge at Try Stamping (or not) on Tuesday.

This months challenge is Fancy Folds.


I have chosen an interior pop out (expansion) card for this challenge.

I started with a digi stamp by Bugaboo - Giraffe Blocks. .  I colored them all in colored pencils on this run.
For the image on the front cover, I edged it as well with Vintage Photo and Tea Stain distress ink and then wrapped it with brown and white twine.
The paper is by Recollections and I have Neuvo drops scattered in cream.

The interior digi's were all in colored pencil as well with the exception of the little lady bug.  She's in ink to pop her out.
The sentiment is stamped with two different sets: one from Inkadinkado and the other with a stamp from the bargain bin (I swear the stamps in the bargain bin just call to me 'please take me home') - With both I used Walnut Stain distress ink and clear embossing powder to shine it up and make it stand out.
The mechanics of the card are all with Kraft cs and the interior lining is with the same paper as the front to tie it all together.
I edged the folded center with faux stitching and a white gel pen.

It all folds and twists down into a standard A2.

Up and Away

Hello Everyone, this is my design team
contribution for
The Theme this month is
Anything Goes

The digi stamp is "Hot Air Balloon"
 from Pattie's Creations.


For my card, I colored the image with colored pencils and then topped various sections of the balloon with a Wink of Stella.  I then fussy cut the balloon out.
The background was created by stamping clouds by Neat and Tangled with embossing ink and white embossing powder.  I then smudged Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass distress ink and let that dry. Then smudged Broken China oxide in on top of that and wiped off any ink on the clouds.
From black card stock I cut the frame using MFT rectangle die.  
The ribbon banner was stamped and fussy cut on maroon cs and then entirely covered in clear embossing ink and powder for a glossy finish.  
Everything was layered on a maroon side fold cs base.  The banner was added with dimensional squares so that it floats on the balloon.  With the glitter and shine it's so much fun !!
I hope you play along with us at Pattie's Creations and I wish you all the best of luck !!

The birthday was stamped and then colored with purple marker, edged with Wilted Violet distress ink and then framed with purple cs and attached with dimensional squares.  I added everything to a lavender top fold cs base and then added clear gems scattered.
