One Stamp at a Time and More – Animals. It is time for another Blog Hop with the One Stamp at a Time and More Design Team. Today our theme is Animals, or more precisely ‘Chick Ewe Out!’. Not that we are only allowed to use Chicks or Ewes, so I went for a Giraffe. If you are following along with the hop you have probably joined me from Anna Helman on the Indiana and Ohio border in the USA, or perhaps you are joining the hop at my Website. In either case ‘Welcome’.
Those of you who follow me regularly will know that I have been a bit unwell for the past couple of weeks with a rather nasty chest infection. It was this which inspired my projects for today. I remembered that there was an image of a giraffe with a knot in its neck in the Back on Your Feet stamp set, so I really had to go for it. This is a real case of ‘Pun intended!’
The colour scheme for the giraffe was pretty much a given, so that was a good place to start with the design. I also knew I wanted to include one of the Flowering Foil papers from the 2nd Sale-a-Bration release. As I was already going to be using Daffodil Delight and Light Cajun Craze for the giraffe, and knowing I didn’t want to use one of the obvious floral designs, the Rose Gold foiling seemed the more appropriate one to pick. I added this to a Daffodil Delight mat.
The giraffe and sentiment fitted really well on the fifth from largest Stitched Rectangle die, so I simply added that towards the bottom right of the card front after adding a piece of Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon across the bottom of the mat. Once I had added the die cut, I tied a small piece of the ribbon in a half knot, just for a finishing touch.
My ‘And More’ project is a Parcel from the Parcels and Petals Bundle in the Annual Catalogue. I tied the same ribbon around the parcel and attached a small tag made using the Label me Lovely Punch. Because the Blends stain the back of Whisper White, I added a second punched layer so the back was nice and clean, then I used the circle punch from the same stamp through both layers.
