WWC229 – Helen\’s "All About Occasions" Challenge

Hello there and welcome. This week it\’s all about Occasions at The Watercooler Wednesday Challenge website and Helen is our hostess!
Handcrafted llama card using the Paprika stamp and die set by PhotoPlay.

This is the first time to use this stamp and die set – Paprika by Photo Play.  I bought the set at a card making conference I attended this year and it is full of cute images and sentiments.  I love how the llama looks so self important.

I stamped and colored the llama with Copic markers.   Next, I used a stitched die to trim the panel and then a circle die to cut out a
 spotlight.  I also heat embossed a stitched sentiment. I backed the white panel with craft foam and attached to the teal A2 card.  Last, I used foam tape to adhere the llama and sentiment strip.

Giraffe Baby Shower Card

I am going to a baby shower and the theme is giraffes.

Simon Says Stamp Stacking Animals giraffe
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.

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.
