Yay! I'm finally back in town. . . . maybe now I'll be able to get my stamping room unpacked and set up. :-) Anyway, as I've been trying to do a little organizing I ran across these two cards. Both cards were made several years back, and they both use the set Wild About You. This is another one of my favorite stamp sets that will no longer be available after June 30.

Creative notes for the giraffe card. . . . After I stamped the giraffe image, I took my 1/16"circle punch and my 1/8" circle punch to punch a few holes. That means those brown spots on the giraffe are actually just the paper underneath showing through.

Ink: Pumpkin Pie
Paper: Apricot Appeal, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Accessories: 1/16" Circle Punch, 1/8" Circle Punch, white grosgrain ribbon, dimensionals

This was a card I originally designed for my Mother-in-law. She loves elephants, so I knew I needed to use this stamp for her. The background was done with the Print Pattern Background stamp (previously discontinued) and then I took a white gel pen and traced along the pattern. I stamped the ear of the elephant again on a scrap paper, cut it out and then popped it up on a dimensionals. Also, there is glitter on the flower.

Ink: Sahara Sand, Pretty in Pink marker, Mellow Moss Marker
