Stampin’ Up! Wild About You

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s week going?  How are you all doing with your Social Distancing?  I don’t know about you, but this is getting tougher as the days go by.  I miss spending time with my niece, nephews and all my other family members and friends.  I know this is all for the best, but I’m ready to go back to normal.

For today’s card, I made a real challenging one for me.  I’m not a big fan of Orange or Yellow, but I was determined to make a card using these colors.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from the Fab Friday Color Challenge #186.  Here are their colors.

My design is from the CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #366.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Paper Players Theme Challenge #485.  Here is their theme.

I started by stamping the giraffe image from the Stampin’ Up! Animal Outing Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I then cut the image out using the Animal Friends Dies.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Animal Outing stamp set in Soft Suede Ink and cut the sentiment out using the 2nd largest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut the scalloped square mat using the Layering Squares Dies out of a panel of Terracotta Tile cardstock.  I adhered the stitched square to the scalloped square using Snail and adhered the giraffe image to the square using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the giraffe pattern die from the Animal Friends Dies, I cut a Daffodil Delight panel twice.  I adhered the die cut panel to a Mango Melody mat, which I cut using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered a piece of Terracotta Tile 1/2″ Scalloped Linen Ribbon across the middle of the panel using Snail.  I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the Ornate Layers Dies and then embossed it using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered a panel of Pumpkin Pie Regals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Thick Whisper White card base using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White die cut panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted die cut panel on top of the Whisper White panel using Glue Dots and the artwork on top of the matted die cut panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Terracotta Tile 2019-2021 In-Color Faceted Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Big Thank You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the giraffe image from the Animal Outing stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it in using my Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pumpkin Pie mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the giraffe image from the Animal Outing stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom front of the envelope and colored it in using my Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a panel of the Mango Melody Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
