Welcome my stampy friends to a new
Card Concept Challenge starting today!
Here is our new Inspiration Photo:
Make It Masculine
I was inspired by the wildlife in the photo to create my
Clean & Layered style card.
~Lots of Layers
~Designer papers, embossing
~Clean & Fresh looking
~Some colored images
This inspiration photo let me know that I don't have very many masculine or animal stamps!
I need to change that!
I did find this brand new pattern paper from Stampin Up in my stash called Happy Forest Friends!
I got the paper in a Paper Share with a Stampin Up demonstrator and hadn't purchased the matching stamps that go with this paper.
So I used my paper! I placed a rectangle die on the paper in an area where I wanted to cut for my background. Then, I took the scraps and Fussy Cut a bear, a bird and some flowers to add to the background to create a forest scene. I put foam squares on the back of the fussy cut images to pop them up and add some dimension. I layered some Cajun Craze card stock behind the panel. And then adhered these to a Mossy Meadow A2 size card base.
I think it turned out really cute!
This paper is adorable!
I'll list the description in the list below, if interested!
