Longing to See You Giraffe | Stampendous

Hello my friends! It's Stacy here from CraftaholicMomma up today on the Scrapping for Less blog. Today I have a card for you using the Stampendous Giraffe stamp and die combo set. There are two things that I really like about this set. One, you can take the background die and use it with any stamp you have in your collection to make a tree scene. You can make it like the safari I made here, or you could use it as a meadow tree or Halloween dead tree just by changing up the colors of card stock you cut. Two, the giraffe set is so cute and versatile. You could mirror stamp a second one and entwine their necks around each other for an adorable love you card. There's just so much you can do with it!!





I masked off the card layer with a circle die and masking paper. I used blending brushes and Distress Oxide inks to create the horizon and safari sky. I die cut the tree with black card stock and made it into a frame with a second circle die from my stash. I adhere this over the inked background with liquid adhesive. I stamped, die cut and colored the giraffe with Copic Markers. Stamping the sentiment and popping the giraffe and card layer up on foam adhesive finished it off nicely.



I think it fits in nicely with this month's theme of "In the Wild". I would to go on an African safari someday. I just LOVE giraffes and elephants!

Scrapping for Less June Flavor of the Month Card Kit Sneak Peek

Hi Crafters, I’m up today on the Scrapping for Less blog. I've been thoroughly enchanted by all the "slimline" cards people are making so I've been making a few myself. 

I told Teresa I had this idea to take all of the critters (aside from one or two) and make this mesmerizing under water magical scene. I think I could live under water if I had all of these beautiful creatures for neighbors. 

You are going to LOVE this kit!! In fact I predict you'll go bonkers for it!! 

My card measures 3 1/2" by 8 1/2". That's a 7" x 8 1/2" piece of card stock scored at 3 1/2" on the 7" side. They fit in either a #9 or #10 (business) size envelope.







Use the hashtag #FOTMundertheseababies in your social media showing projects you made using the June "Under the Sea Babies" Flavor of the Month Card Kit. We will pick someone who uses that hashtag and highlight them on all of Scrapping for Less' social media. We want to see what you make! 

 All supplies used are listed below. 

 If you're interested in this kit and want to save even more money, be sure to sign up for a subscription prior to 10:00 pm EST this Friday night (June 28). We'll be revealing it a couple of hours later at 12:00 am EST on Saturday morning. You can still purchase a one time kit on Saturday at full price. 

 Thanks for visiting and hope to see you Saturday morning for the big blog hop reveal,

Celebrate Cards

Today I have some cards I made using this gorgeous paper from a 12x12 paper pad I picked up at Hobby Lobby called Uptown Girl by The Paper Studio. 

The sentiment stamp is by Clearly Besotted. I stamped several of them and cut them out with my Brother Scan n Cut machine. 

I hope you like them!
