In my family, boys/men enjoy humorous animal cards so that was my starting point. I stamped, Copic colored and die cut the animals and greenery. Next I die cut the sentiment and then assembled the scene with foam tape. I thought the monkey swinging from the sentiment was fun.

Thank you for visiting my blog.
Thanks for stopping by! This week is Watercooler Wednesday\’s All About Occasions Challenge. Marsha is our host. Head over to the website for further details.
I started with Lawn Fawn\’s Perfectly Plaid paper and used a 2 1/2\” circle punch near the top of the panel. Then I distressed the edges and around the circle with Seedless Grape Preserves dye ink.
Next, I stamped Impression Obsession Baby Giraffe
, colored with Copic markers and then fussy cut. I arranged him peeping out of the circle window at a jaunty angle. I added some flowers from Sunny Studio Tropical Paradise and embossed the birthday sentiment. I wanted a bit of dimension so attached the Perfectly Plaid layer to a lavender card base with craft foam and glue. I added sequins, Wink of Stella on the blooms and horns, and Tonic Nuvo Glaze on the eyes. I think the giraffe has a lot of personality and I love using this stamp.

I am going to a baby shower and the theme is giraffes.
My friend\’s daughter is having a little girl so I went with a pink and yellow color theme. SSS\’s Stacking animals is one of my favorite stamps sets and the giraffe always makes me smile.
I started by watercoloring a background panel with Rose Madder on Ranger Watercolor paper. I colored the silly giraffe with Copic RV04, Y00, Y06 and Y08 and then die cut.
My idea was to have the giraffe peeking out of a circle die cut window with the pink background. I stamped the Stamping Bella (Baby Carriage) sentiment added some Pretty Pink Posh jewels and paired with a bright pink envelop. This card came together very quickly.
I am entering his card in:
Looking forward to taking this card to the shower.
UPDATE: I was excited to learn that this card was selected as the CAS on Friday Winner! I will be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge.

Who doesn\’t want to receive an encouraging card? My daughter opened her own marketing firm a year ago and I wanted to send her a card for her first anniversary. Giraffes are her favorite animal so I went with Simon Says Stamp\’s Stacking Animals. I am entering this card in the Time Out Challenge #108 WILD
I think pattern stamping is fun and festive so I went with that technique. I colored the animals with Copic markers and then added Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the hearts and beaks to make them pop.
Thanks for stopping by.
