Wild About You!

Today I am sharing with you another Stamp Club card from this week. I love the stamp set Wild About You (115110). I have used it several times for Kid's Birthday Cards, Baby Cards and even Valentine's Day Cards. It is a set that I will miss having in the catalog, because retiring this month. We used a 5 1/2"x 8 1/2" base of So Saffron Card Stock (105118) but before we folded it in half we scalloped the edge with the Scallop Edge Punch (112091). We then folded the base in half. This makes the card slightly smaller than usual but not enough to notice. I used the Sweet Slumber Specialty DSP (114037) this is also on the last chance list and only available while supplies last. After attaching the Sweet Slumber paper, we cut a 4" circle with the Circle Scissor Plus (112530) and So Saffron Card Stock. Because I love the Big Shot (113439) and just can't seem to not add a little texture to my cards. We texturized the circle with the small polka dots in the Stampin'Up! Backgrounds I (114512).
Now to the stamping, we stamped the elephant from Wild About You using Baja Breeze Classic Ink Pad (111833). We then masked the elephant. Masking is simply stamping your image in our case the elephant on a post it note then cutting out the image. After you have done this you place the post it note image over the image you just stamped on your card stock. Then you stamp a new image over part of the existing one. In our case we used the little flower also from Wild About You! and inking it up with the Ruby Red (100075) and Certainly Celery (105106) Stampin' Write Markers. By masking the image it looks like the elephant is holding the flower and the stem doesn't show were his trunk is. Hope all that makes sense to you.The elephant is then attached to a Ruby Red Card Stock (102030)mat and attached to the card with Dimensionals. The Sweet Little One is from the Holidays & Wishes Stamp Set (114984) also on the Last Chance List for this month. We stamped it on Whisper White with the Ruby Red Classic Ink Pad (102259). We used the Word Window Punch (105090) to punch the Sweet Little One out and attached it to the card with SNAIL adhesive and that is our second Stamp Club card.
Just a couple of reminders, first if you are interested in purchasing either of these stamp sets they are available until the end of June. Since Stampin'Up! makes it own stamp sets they will make more to fill orders until the end of June, while the accessories that are on the Last Chance List are only available while supplies last. Also the hostess special is still going on through the end of June were anyone hosting a workshop has the opportunity to earn extra hostess rewards. It isn't to late to host either a book party or a party at your house or mine. Just give me a call to set a date. I want to thank you for taking the time to stop by today. Hope you have a great day, Tonya
