Colorful Animal Birthday Cards

March 27, 2017

It was a fun weekend of making cards using the Simon Says Stamp April 2017 Card Kit. Here are two more cards that I made using the kit.

Card One

Card Two: The elephants and birds were fussy cut and popped up to hide a stamping mistake J

Details

Size:  Horizontal top fold A2 cards

Extra Details:  I started with two panels of white card stock. I used the colored inks that came in the kit to stamp the images. For card one, I made a mask for the giraffe so I could layer them together. On card two, I made a stamping mistake. GRRRR… but rather than start again, I re-stamped the elephants and birds on a scrap of white card stock, fussy cut them out, and popped them up using dimensional glue dots. I stamped my sentiments using black ink.

I used stitched rectangle dies to cut each panel before adhering them to orange card bases. The orange card stock was from my stash.

Stamps Used: Simon Says Stamp’s Cuddly Critter Accessories and Wild Cuddly Critters

Dies Used: Lawn Fawn’s Large Cross Stitched Rectangle Stackables and Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables

Ink: Versa Fine

Simon Says Stamp Hybrid Inks in Watermelon, Orange Slush, Lemon Zing, and Key Lime

I just subscribed to the Simon Says Stamp Monthly Card Kit. I am very excited to have a box of crafty stuff show up at my house every month. My first kit is the April 2017 kit. This card was inspired by Heather Ruwe’s card on the inspiration sheet. I love the way it turned out and will be using this layout again.

Details

Size:  Vertical top fold A2 card

Extra Details: I started with a panel of white card stock. I used the four mini ink cubes to add strips of color to the panel. It was a straight to paper application. I used the same ink to stamp the strip of solid hearts in each stripe. I added some hearts and the sentiment in black ink. I added some black glitter gel pen and white gel pen to the hearts and sentiment.

I created a card base from some green cardstock I had in my stash. I added some more solid heart strips with the green ink.

I stamped the elephant on white cardstock and used colored pencils to color it in. I fussy cut the elephant out and painted the edges with a black marker. I did cut around the trunk of the elephant so it could hang out over the circle.

I die cut the white card stock with a stitched rectangle and a stitched circle die. I adhered the circle die cut to the card base. I adhered the elephant on the panel and used fun foam to pop the whole panel up.

Birthday Animal Stack

March 25, 2017

I just got my Simon Says Stamp April 2017 Card Kit in the mail this weekend. I love the Wild Cuddly Critters Stamp Set. I also own the Cuddly Critters Accessories Stamp Set. As soon as I looked at the two sets together, I know that I would be combining the stamp sets. Here is a card I made using both sets.

Details

Size:  Vertical side fold 4.25 x 7” card

Extra Details:  I started by stamping all of the critters on white card stock. I choose not to use the penguin; he seemed out of place. I used colored pencils to color everything in. Once I was done coloring, I fussy cut all of the images out. I used a black marker to paint the edges to hide any cutting mistakes. To make the bird sit on the mouse’s head, I trimmed around his wings.

Next, I created my card base. I made a 4.25 x 7 inch card base so that I could fit all of the animals stacked up. I added some clouds to the card base for interest. I also added a strip of green plaid paper cut with a grassy border die.  I stamped the sentiment next. I used part of a sentiment from the Wild Cuddly Critters set and a sentiment form the Cuddly Critter Accessories set.

Lastly, I adhered all of my animals in a stack and the card was finished.

Stamps Used: Simon Says Stamp’s Cuddly Critter Accessories and Wild Cuddly Critters

Dies Used: Lawn Fawn’s Grassy Border die

Paper: Lawn Fawn’s Perfectly Plaid Rainbow
