I’m still using Animal Outing and today I have another of my Jungle Animals looking cards. It’s similar to yesterday’s but comes complete with a video today.

I just love this Animal Outing Bundle which is 10% off when bought as a bundle whether you want the wood mount or clear mount. I personally would suggest clear mount. Why?

  • You save money as it’s cheaper than wood mount
  • You’ve saved money to spend on other product – winner!!
  • Clear Mount can be used with the Stamparatus – oh, way to go!

Watch the video to see how I made this card. Keep in mind this is just my way of doing it.

Thanks so much for watching. Did you give it a thumbs up? Better still, subscribe.
Thanks so much for your support, I do appreciate it.
So this card has more Blueberry Bushel in it. Don’t you think Blueberry Bushel is just a gorgeous colour? Mind you blue is my favourite colour, what’s yours?
Don’t forget to ink up the correct side of your embossing folder. So the side which says, SIZZIX, is the side you ink.

Jungle Animals Basics

  • Cut card base of Blueberry Bushel to 14.9 cm x 21 cm or 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″
  • Score and fold at 10.5 cm or 4 1/4″
  • Cut a layer of Basic Black to 14.4 cm x 10 cm or 5 1/4″ x 4″
  • The Shimmery White card needs cutting at 13.9 cm x 9.5 cm or 5″ x 3 3/4″
  • Cut card insert to 13.5 cm x 9.5 cm or 5″ x 3 3/4″
  • Stamp the animals in Stazon Black ink on Watercolor paper and colour as desired before die cutting. It’s easier to do it this way.
  • Stamp on the inside of the card and the outside of the envelope and colour using ink and a Blender Pen

Today’s post is all about Animal Outing Again. I will have a video for you tomorrow to show how I made the card. I’m doing a series of cards made with this ever so cute bundle.

Animal Outing Again

Animal Outing Again

I’ve combined the bundle with the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the Stitched labels Framelits Dies, to create the card front.

Ink up the embossing folder with Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz and Crumb Cake before running it through the Big Shot. Use Sponge Daubers to add more colour or make where the colours ‘join’ look more blended.

Animal Outing Again

Stamp the Rhino on Watercolor Paper with Stazon Black ink before die cutting with the Animal Friends Thinlit Dies. Use an Aqua Painter to add the desired colours. I’ve used Smoky Slate, Basic Gray, Crumb Cake, Blueberry Bushell and Blackberry Bliss. Colour the bird with Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie.

Animal Outing Again

The inside if the card and the outside of the envelope are both stamped with the Giraffe from the same set and coloured using a Blender Pen. Use Crushed Curry as a base and add Pumpkin Pie over the top. If you find it’s all a bit too orange, add some Crumb Cake but be careful not to work the card too much as it may start to break down.

Animal Outing Again Basics

  • Cut card base of Blackberry Bliss  to 14.9 cm x 21 cm or 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ – landscape card
  • Score and fold at 10.5 cm or 4 1/4″
  • Cut layer 1 which is Basic Black to 14.4 cm x 10 cm or 5 1/4″ x 4″
  • Cut Shimmery White cardstock to 13.9 cm x 9.5 cm or 5″ x 3 3/4″
  • Whisper White card insert is cut 13.5 cm x 9.5 cm or 5″ x 3 3/4″
  • Stamp the sentiment onto Whisper White and die cut with Stitched Labels Framelit Dies and adhere using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Tie 2 double loop bows and add 1 to each end of tag with Glue Dots
  • Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the Rhino where desired
  • Adhere Giraffes and leaves with Tear & Tape Adhesive

Do you sometimes need a cute card for a loved one? Wild About You is just that, oh so cute. Well, I think so anyway.

Wild About You

Wild About You

I have used the Clear Mount Stamp Set for this card and lots of layers. Use Stampin’ Blends to colour in the images after stamping them in Memento Tuxedo Black. I used Shimmery White card but Thick Whisper White card would work well too.

Wild About You

I’ve used a mirror stamping technique with the Stamparatus, which I do need to perfect and then I’ll do a video tutorial.

I’ve trimmed the top and bottom from the Burlap Ribbon to give a frayed effect and attached it to the card front with Tear & Tape Adhesive.

Colour the little frog with an Ivory and Light Old Olive Stampin’ Blend

Wild About You Basics

  • Cut Whisper White card base to 14.9 cm x 21 cm or 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″
  • Score and fold at 10.5 cm or 4 1/4″
  • Basic Black layer 1 is cut to 14.4 cm x 10 cm or 5 1/4″ x 4″
  • Cut the Share What We Love D.S.P. to 13.9 cm x 9.5 cm or 5″ x 3 3/4″
  • Another Basic Black layer is cut to 13.4 cm x 9 cm or 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″
  • Cut the Shimmery White card to 12.9 cm x 8.5 cm or 4 1/2″ x 3 1/4″
  • Use the Stampasauraus to position all images and stamp in Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Use the Silicone Craft Sheet to stamp the Giraffe and then transfer to the card front (mirror stamping technique)
  • Colour the Giraffes in Light and Dark Daffodil Delight, Light Pumpkin Pie, Ivory and Color Lifter Stampin’ Blends
  • Cut an insert 9.5 cm x 13.5 cm or 3 3/4″ x 5″
  • Cut a piece of DSP 2 cm x 14 cm or 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ and banner cut then adhere to insert

Last week I shared a Varied Vases card for the Super Boss Day Blog Hop. So, today I thought I’d share the video of how I made the card in Varied Vases Stamparatus.

Firstly, though I have to share an update on the Super Heros Cake Toppers.

I think it turned out really well, don’t you? My daughter and her friend made and decorated the cake. I just made and supplied the cake toppers.

Varied Vases Stamparatus

Here’s another look at the card I made using the varied Vases bundle and the Styamparatus.

Varied Vases Stamparatus

Thank you for watching and I hope you liked and subscribed to my channel.

YouTube Subscribe

Thank you for your support, I really appreciate it.

Think about ways you could change this card, still using the 2018 – 202o In Colors

Colour Combinations – here’s a few ideas

Blueberry Bushel, Call Me Clover and Calypso Coral

Pineapple Punch, Pumpkin Pie, Shaded Spruce

Call Me Clover, Gorgeous Grape, Soft Seafoam

Grapefruit Grove, Daffodil Delight, Mossy Meadow

Lovely Lipstick, Pineapple Punch, Basic Gray

Lovely Lipstick, Call Me Clover, Bermuda Bay

Pineapple Punch, Balmy Blue, Lemon Lime Twist

Grapefruit Grove, Highland Heather, Mint Macaron

Call Me Clover, Blueberry Bushel, Merry Merlot

Blueberry Bushel, Merry Merlot, Mossy Meadow

Blueberry Bushel, Basic Gray, Lovely Lipstick

So, I have given you 11 colour combinations. What others can you come up with using the 2018 – 2020 In Colors in combination with other current colours?

Varied Vases Bundle

I just love this bundle and hope to make many more cards including some punch art with the Vase Builder Punch. This was Mary Fish’s celebration stamp set which she designed in conjunction with Stampin’ Up! to celebrate her US$1,000,000 in sales. It’s a beautiful set which has so many possibilities and would compliment many stamps you own.

You could easily use in on Scrapbook pages or for Memories & More. Wouldn’t one of the images or a punched out case be great? Just imagine how good your page could be with an addition of an element from the Varied Vases Bundle.

What do you do when your Grandson is into Super Heros and is having a Super Heros Cake for his 5th birthday? You help out of course! “Mum, can you make the cake toppers ’cause you’re good at craft?” asks DD. Me “Sure thing!” Where do I start? Super Heros Cake Toppers – we didn’t have those in my day.

Google is my friend for research. I managed to come up with many images but most are stock photos or have huge copyright watermarks on them. I did find a few free sites and at the bottom of this post, I have a file you can download to print off your own cake toppers.

Super Heros Cake Toppers

Super Heros Cake Toppers

This is the before photo, that is before I stuck them all together. I printed these off on a sheet of A4 Whisper White card on my colour printer. Thanks Stampin’ Up! for awesome cardstock which will go through my printer and be sturdy enough to make cake toppers.

1: Use your snips to cut them out.

Super Heros Cake Toppers

 2: Place a toothpick on the back and adhere with Tear & Tape Adhesive

Super Heros Cake Toppers

3: Remove the backing from the Tear & Tape

Super Heros Cake Toppers

4: Add Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the back of the topper which doesn’t have the toothpick on it

Super Heros Cake Toppers

 5: Stick the two pieces together. Now you will have a bit of overlap of card on both sides as the words don’t match up. That is for this topper there is a ‘K’ on one side and directly behind it is the ‘w!’ (I hope that’s clear)

6: Trim if needed and they’re ready to insert into the cake. Quick and easy, really. You could cut them out while watching TV or videos etc.

Now, these Waterfront Note Cards are featured on page 149 of the Annual Catalogue and are very quick and easy. I will have a video tomorrow for you which will show you how I made the 4 Note Cards and Envelopes in this You Can Make It Waterfront Cards.

Stampin’ Up! have introduced a new ‘bundle’ of products in the catalogue this year. They’re called You Can Make It. They feature some great samples for each ‘bundle’ which you can make with the products they list.

Waterfront Note Cards

In the past, you would have waded through the Catalogue to find all the individual products. Then ordered each individual product you wanted. Now, Stampin’ Up! have listed all the products they have used in the samples and ‘bundled’ them under one (1) product number. How cool is that? Very thoughtful, thanks Stampin’ Up!

Waterfront Note Cards

Waterfront Note Cards

Stamp the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss. Then stamp the image for the inside of the card and the outside of the envelope in Mint Macaron. You just can’t have a naked envelope, now can you?

Move the twine where you want it to go after tying it on the card. Trim off the ends of the twine last. The best knot to tie is a reef or flat knot. Please check with your Post office about sending them in the post.

Waterfront Note Cards

I have used the same inks for this card. Now, the cards are Whisper White Memories & More Cards & Envelopes (small) and I’ve used Nature’s Twine on all of the cards as well.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you come back again soon to see what else I have to share.
