Stampin’ Up Animal Outing Birthday Card for Fab Friday

Good Monday morning everyone and Happy Fall.  Hope you all had a great weekend.  Today’s card uses a really cute bundle called Animal Outing.  I just love all the animals in it.  The best part is the Thinlit Dies that you can get to go with the stamp set so you don’t have to fussy cut.  I played along with the Fab Friday challenge. Here are the colors for Fab Friday 146.  Stop by the challenge blog to see the beautiful projects everyone has made and play along too.

Here is what I came up with for this sweet color combination.

I started with a piece of Balmy Blue cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot using the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

On the right side I adhered a piece of Gorgeous Grape cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I then took a piece of Highland Heather cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot 3 times using the Giraffe Cutout Thinlit Die.  I adhered the Highland Heather piece with Multipurpose Liquid Glue on top of the Gorgeous Grape.  I stamped the sentiment from the Animal Outing stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink on a piece of Vellum paper and cut it out using the 3rd smallest Layering Ovals Framelits.  Using Glue Dots, I attached it to the center of the giraffe cut out.  I added a couple branches that were cut out in Tranquil Tide cardstock from the Animal Friends Thinlits Dies to the top and bottom of the oval.  I tied a piece of Whisper White 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon around the card front and tied a knot.

I stamped the Giraffe image from the Animal Outing stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on a piece of Powder Pink cardstock.  Then using the Giraffe Die from the Animal Friends Thinlits Dies, I cut it out using my Big Shot.  I went over the spots on the giraffe with my Powder Pink Stampin’ Write Marker to make them a little darker pink.  I stamped the Branch with Frog image in Tranquil Tide Ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the branch in with my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker and the frog and leaves in with my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Write Marker.  I cut the circle out using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shaped Framelits.  I cut the 3rd largest Scalloped Circle from the Layering Circle Framelits Dies and adhered the Whisper White circle to it using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I attached the Giraffe and some more of the branches cut from Tranquil Tide cardstock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the Whisper White circle.  I attached the circle to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Powder Pink card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the Giraffe image using Smoky Slate Ink and Branch with Frog image using Tranquil Tide Ink.  I colored the giraffe in with my Powder Pink Stampin’ Write Marker.  I colored the branch with my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker and the frog and leaves in with my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Write Marker.  I used the sentiment from the Pretty Kitty stamp set and stamped it in Gorgeous Grape Ink.  I adhered the liner to a Highland Heather cardstock mat using Snail then adhered it to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card off, I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope by stamping the giraffe and branch image on the front and colored them in the same as I did on the card.

Thank you for stopping by my blog.  Hope you will give this card a try.  Happy Stamping.
