Hello my crafty friends! I’m so excited to be joining the Simon Says Stamp Hugs & Kisses Release Blog Hop!
I have a special card I’m dedicating to a special friend today because SHE came up with this stencil set idea!
I have a video that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.
I was so excited to see that our very own Susan Opal designed this fabulous set of animal print stencils. This is a 3-pack but I’m focusing on just one of the three today. I’ll be using the others very soon.
I used this giraffe-print stencil for my background but I think it could also be used for maybe a water background or even like a pebble stone sidewalk. Use your imagination!
I sprayed the back of the stencil with Pixie Spray and placed it over white cardstock.
After removing the stencil, I used the left over ink on my brush to go back over the background.
I also splattered it with white ink for added interest.
How about this adorable toucan?! It has to be the cutest little toucan ever! I used some colors from my sampler pack of Simon Says Stamp cardstock to paper piece this cute critter together. For the tail, I used my Holographic Rainbow pack.
For the sentiment, I’m using the Hi There stamp and coordinating because I absolutely love a good coordinating die for sentiments.
I added dimension behind my sentiments by layering cardstock and added foam squares to the toucan.
What a fun and simple card with a totally cool background. Awesome job Susan!
And don’t forget this amazing exclusive!
