Hi there stampers! This week has been so busy with little time to stamp however I did find the time to put together my card for this week’s TGIF Challenge #168. The challenge this week features a sketch challenge and I knew I wanted to play off the design of a card a made a few weeks ago.
A few weeks ago I made a card with multiple circles that had the critters from Animal Outings stamp set popping out of each circle. I decided to use a similar theme for this week’s challenge but created a love themed card with the critters instead. I used my Stitched Shapes Framelits to create multiple circles out of Whisper White cardstock. I also stamped several images from the Animal Outings stamp set onto Whisper White and colored with my Stampin’ Blends. I used the coordinating thinlits called Animal Friends to cut out the colored images along with some leaf die cuts and the animal print background of the one circle.
I used a sponge to blend on some Balmy Blue ink onto the largest circle and then adhered the giraffes with dimensionals. I created circle frames from Mossy Meadow cardstock using the Stitched Shapes Framelits and Layering Circle Framelits. I then adhered the frog shape to the smaller circle with the animal print die cut. I stamped the sentiment from the Animal Outings stamp set onto another small stitched circle. I ran a panel of Whisper White through the Big Shot using the Subtle Embossing Folder that had been inked up with Crumb Cake ink. I also die cut a piece of Crumb Cake using the Delicate Lace Edgelits.
Everything was arranged with dimensionals and multipurpose glue onto a top folding card base made from Mossy Meadow. I drew a few hearts onto a piece of Poppy Parade and cut them out with my paper snips to add a finishing touch to the card with an additional pop of color. I added a thin layer of Fine-Tip Glue to give the hearts some shine.
I hope you play along with us this week over on TGIF Challenges!
