A Little Bit Of Old And A Little Bit Of New (CT #148)
Today's card is one I made for my niece's sons first birthday. I used a little bit of old, A Little Wild and Happy Celebrations stamp sets and Color Theory designer series paper with a little bit of new, Swirly Frames stamp set. When I saw the Swirly Frames stamp set at Stampin' Up! OnStage I really liked it. I kept thinking about all the possibilities with this set. Then during prize patrol I won this set! I was so excited!
The Happy Celebrations stamp set is one that is retiring and it is now while supplies last. This stamp set, along with all the retiring products, are while supplies last and will no longer be available after May 31st.
I got my inspiration for this card from my CASEing Tuesday group. Here is the picture that is our inspiration this week.
For the animals I stamped them first with Memento Black ink, then I colored them with our Stampin Blends markers. I used the Crumb Cake, Bronze and Smoky Slate. These will be available for purchase on June 1st. Since I only wanted the front of the animals I only inked up that part of my stamp and then cut them out with the Little Loves Framelits. You will have to do a little trimming to cut off the part that connects to the other side. These stamps are made to make gift tags, so there is the front and back of the animals.
To do the frame I stamped the frame image onto Crumb Cake cardstock using Soft Suede ink and then fussy cut it out. I stamped the Happy sentiments with Soft Suede ink and the Birthday To You with Crushed Curry ink on Whisper White cardstock. To adhere the frame to the Whisper White cardstock I used our Foam Adhesive Strips. They were the perfect size for this project. I then used the adhesive strips to attach the animals so they were all at the same height.
I stamped a lion in the inside of my card and an elephant on the outside of the envelope.
I hope these CASEing Tuesday projects and my other projects give you inspiration to create a card, scrapbook page, 3D project or any other type of project. I would love it if shared it with me in the comments. I love hearing from all of you.
Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you have a terrific week!
