Stampin' Up! Wildly Happy Baby Card for the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop


Welcome to the Happy Inkin' Thursday blog hop. You're in for a treat if you have never visited before. It's a weekly challenge and this week we have a sketch challenge. I can't wait to see what the other team members created. Hop along with us at the bottom of my post.

Here is what I created for it...


I used the Wildly Happy Stamp Set for my images and sentiments.

My card base is Basic Black with a Whisper White mat that I dry embossed with the Old World 3D Embossing Folder. I sponged the ridges lightly with Smoky Slate which reminded me of wrinkled elephant skin. I adhered it to the base with liquid glue.

I cut a panel of Gray Granite for the mat under the art piece. I stamped the elephants on a scrap of Thick Whisper White and colored them with my Light and Dark Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends and the grass with Light Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blend. Then I fussy cut them. 

I stamped the elephants again on a piece of Thick Whisper White and used the third to largest Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut out the panel.  I did a watercolor wash with Balmy Blue ink for the sky and adhered the fussy cut elephants with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Then on a scrap of Whisper White, I stamped the sentiment and die cut it with the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I cut another shape out of Gray Granite card stock, cut it in half and adhered it to the back of the sentiment. I popped that up with Dimensionals as well.

With another sentiment from Wildly Happy, I finished off the inside with a mat of Balmy Blue.



I hope you enjoyed my card today and thank you for joining the hop. Clicking on the "next" button will take you to Eva Dobilas. Clicking on the names below will take you directly to the other team members and their projects.

Stampin' Up! Dragonfly Garden Birthday Card

Good Saturday morning, peeps. This is my last Saturday in NC and right now it's 36 degrees. It'll be a shock to go from the 50's...
