A Little Wild from Stampin’ Up

Hi Friends!

I hope you can join me this September for a month full of stamping and creating!  Creative Escape is at the end of the month – the 29th and 30th!  Last call for those who would like to join me this year!

This week, I’d like to show you a fun card with stamps and framelit bundle, A Little Wild.  It is the cutest!  And more to follow in the Holiday mini catalog too!

You will find it on page 108 in the annual Stampin’ Up catalog….it comes with an elephant, lion, and bear stamps and coordinating framelits. item #145328 (c) $43.00

This card is made with Powder Pink card stock – in real life it does appear more saturated pink color.  It is perfect for a baby shower card.  But of course, you could put the lion in the circle to swing around or the bear and make it a cute birthday card too!

  • start by cutting a 11″ x 4 1/2″ piece of card stock and score at 5 1/2″ for a top fold in your card
  • die cut a 2 1/8″ circle from the Layering Circles Framelits #141705  Make sure to open the card flat when die cutting the circle on the card front

  • use a small bottle with water in it to “mist” your card front.  When humidity is added before you emboss with the 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folders – it will make a deeper embossed impression (sometimes I’ll sponge to accent the impressions!)
  • place moistened card stock inside impressions folder and run through the Big Shot……** Remember to use only the bottom portion of the platform and one plate

  • meanwhile, stamp your  image in StaZon ink to color in.  I used the elephant here with Smokey Slate and Powder Pink ink and a blender pen.  I think it works best to put some ink on a tile and then use a blender pen to transfer the ink to the image

  • now die cut with the elephant framelit in the bundle

  • Cut one other piece of card stock…..a 3 1/2″ square of silver glimmer paper to die cut the frame around the elephant…..with Silver Glimmer paper

  • find the same 2 1/8″ circle framelit and then look for the scalloped framelit that is just larger than the circle framelit.  Die cut together so that the circle is centered inside the scalloped framelit
  • Next  is the easiest and fun part!  Find your glue dots – if you don’t have any, put them on your next order!  They work wonderfully for this!!!!
  • Place a glue dot in the middle of the inside of elephant this will hold the twine in place….ok, so you can’t find white bakers twine, I used a piece of the white burlap ribbon or you could just use a piece of dental floss in a pinch

  • I would add a few extra glue dots just to hold elephant together
  • place a glue dot at the exact place north and south of the circle opening to help hold the twine and the silver glimmer frame
  • once you have placed the elephant on to the top and bottom glue dot, cut off excess  twine, white burlap, or dental floss.

Now place the silver glimmer frame lit on over the circle

Pretty cool!  and Really easy using Stampin’ Up Glue dots item #103683 $4.25 for 300 dots of adhesive.

Now add the finishing touches on your card with Powder Pink ribbon, a tag and flower out of silver glimmer paper

Here is another card Elizabeth made with the little lion …..
