I’m so excited to be joining the “What Will You Stamp” design team! Each week we get to design a project using a current Stampin’ Up! stamp set. Then, we ask everyone who has the stamp set to join us in posting their creations. For my very first week, it’s A Little Wild!
I may have gone “a little wild” with A Little Wild. It started off as a simple scene, but I soon decided to cut it up into a jigsaw puzzle. I began with a piece of Whisper White cardstock, 3 1/2″ X 3 1/2″, stamping images (bear, bees, hive, grass, flower) and sentiment (“hello there, honey bear”) in Memento Black ink.
It was fun adding a little color with Stampin’ Blends.
Isn’t Honey Bear adorable! I thought this scene would make a cute jigsaw puzzle, so I got out my die from the Puzzle Pieces die set, and ran it through the Big Shot.
My cute jigsaw puzzle now needed a background, and I’d been anxious to use the new Corrugated embossing folder from the Holiday catalog. It gave wonderful texture, and the straight lines made it easy to glue the puzzle pieces down.
I decided to add a little more interest by having a few missing puzzle pieces, and leaving Honey Bear in one piece. This time, I stamped Honey Bear on Shimmery White cardstock, colored him with Stampin’ Blends, and used his Little Loves die for cutting.
The inside of the card ties it all together. I stamped the two puzzle pieces (“Love You” and “To Pieces”) from the Puzzle Pieces stamp set in Crumb Cake and Pear Pizzazz. The corners were decorated by using the Detailed Trio Punch.
Lastly, the envelope flap was decorated by stamping grass and the flower from A Little Wild.
If you like elephants, you might like to see a recent card where he made an appearance. Just click the link for details.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I hope you were inspired to play along with our What Will You Stamp Challenge.
All of the supplies, except the embossing folder, are available at my on-line store right now. The Corrugated embossing folder from the Holiday Catalog will be available in September. Have a great day!
