Wild About Stamping

Sweeeeeeeet!  That defines the Wild About You stamp set.  I think every animal is adorable (usually, I think one animal in an animal set is a clunker) and its perfect for juvenile or even fun teen or adult cards.  For example, consider this same card for a teenager or friend with a Purely Pomegranate giraffe, Pixie Pink bird and Berry Bliss paper–completely redefined.  Lovely with a gift of chocolate!

Jersey Shore Designer Paper is layered on Brilliant Blue and Whisper White Card stock.  The horizontal banner is a coordinating pattern from Jersey DP (snipped just the Brilliant Blue polka dot pattern from a larger piece of mixed patterns) matted on Pumpkin Pie. 

The giraffe is Pumpkin Pie stamped on Whisper White card stock.  TIP:  There are no "In Color" markers (just the other 48 colors) so I didn’t have a Wild Wasabi option to isolate a single word in the sentiment.  However, I covered all but the word "wild" with a sticky note, inked it on my Wasabi pad, removed the sticky and stamped.  Oh, how I wish Stampin’ Up! would make markers for the In Colors.  However, this alternative works well.  I used markers to isolate different colors for "about" and "you!"  You will need to clean the stamp between each color 🙂  The giraffe layer is followed by Brilliant Blue and Bashful Blue card stock. 

The little bird is Brilliant Blue on Whisper White card stock, punched with a 3/4" circle punch, matted on a 1" Circle of Brilliant Blue.  The scalloped flower is the following combination, from top to bottom:  Bashful Blue Brad, Flower Fusion Felt Flower,  Bashful Blue punched with 3/4" Circle Punch, polka dot Jersey Designer Paper punched with 1 3/8" Circle Punch and, finally, a quick snap of a Scalloped Circle Punch on Wild Wasabi Textured card stock.  Stampin’ Up!’s textured card stock is fabulous.
