Animal Stories


This week’s Design Team Challenge on Late Night Stampers has us creating a Kid theme card from a card we CASED (Copy and Steal Everything) from the Catalog!  I chose to CASE the card on page 129 of the catalog.  We were supposed to change at least two things.  I decided to use the layout, but changed up the colors and set that I used!

I started with a base card of Not Quite Navy.  I added two strips of Crushed Curry Polka Dot Ribbon around the Thoroughly Modern Designer Paper and layered that onto the base.  I cut the "water" from the Swirly Long Strip Die with my Big Shot and used the left over piece from the Bermuda Bay cardstock instead of the Swirl itself.  It is layered over Not Quite Navy and then layered on an extra wide piece of Going Gray cardstock.  I wrapped the tag from Lots of Tags Sizzlit around the Going Gray and placed a button from the Sherbet Designer Buttons package (tied with Linen Thread first).  Finally, I stamped the whale from Animal Stories Stamp Set with Versamark, then Going Gray ink and embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder for a shiny finish!

I was going to add a greeting under the tag, but decided to leave it blank until I needed a card.

Mary Brown, my awesome stamper friend, also played along with this challenge.  Make sure to check out her Blog.  You will be amazed that we both used the same layout, but the result is TOTALLY different!
