It’s Been Sooo Long!


Hello again,

I’ve posted this card on my Instagram account yesterday and am following up today on my blog with the details.

Lola the giraffe by Kat Scrappiness is one of the images I colored during 30 day coloring challenge. Tomorrow is the last day of our coloring challenge (day 30) for this round at least, and it makes me a little bit sad. I am really going to miss daily interaction with all the wonderful people that were participating.

On a brighter note, I now have A LOT of images that are colored, cut and ready to be used on my future projects.

I choose the colors that would coordinate with the image, so I started with creating a background for this card. I used Hero Arts Tribal Striped Bold Prints background stamp that I inked up with Distress inks (Mustard Seed, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade and Rustic Hinge) then lightly misted with water.

I stamped the image on a piece of white cardstock and after it dried I die cut the panel to 3 1/4 x 4 1/2 size with a stitched rectangle die by My Favorite Things.

I decided to add two layers of colored cardstock to bring out the colors of the giraffe so I die cut a black and yellow panels of cardstock and adhered them to a standard size card base (Michaels Recollection’s 110lb).

Next I heat embossed the sentiment with Ranger Yellow embossing power, trimmed it down with scissors and added foam tape to the back. I also added foam tape to my giraffe image.


I added the stamped background to the card base, then adhered the image and the sentiment.

Lastly, I embellished the card using 3 colors of Nuvo Crystal Drops (Dandelion Yellow, Ripened Pumpkin and Ebony Black)
