Hardwood - Walk in the Wild - Stampin' Up!

When the new Hardwood background stamp came out in the new Celebrate the everyday (available January 3 - June 1, 2014) catalogue I knew I would get it right away.  I think it pairs well with the Walk in the Wild stamp set.  We live in northwestern Ontario and moose are a common sight.  Any outdoorsy image would be perfect…such as the Horse Frontier horse image!  But I don't have that one, so a moose it is!

Credits:  This card is a CASE of one by Glenda Calkins.  She used the Lovely as a Tree stamp set on an A2 card.  So LOVELY!  

Masculine cards are not the easiest to design which is why I jumped on Glenda's idea for today's card.  Seems I can't resist the temptation to feminize it with the little bow I made with one of the strands of the burlap ribbon.

The moose was heat embossed with Early Espresso embossing powder. 

Walk in the Wild (4 images)

and Hardwood (Background stamp)

Hope your New Year is starting off on a creative note!  Happy Stamping!

Petite Petals - Monkey Punch Art - Stampin' Up!

Happy 5th Birthday Andie!

Punch art is just FUN and I think this little monkey is adorable!  Just like my sweet granddaughter who turned 5 today!

The cute colourful flowers were made with the new Petite Petals stamp set which also has a co-ordinating punch.    I took the colours from the paper pack Fresh Prints.  The colours are bright and cheery!

I also used the new Fringe Scissors to make my accent piece.  A few quick snips and it's done… all neat and evenly spaced.

My card was made using the sketch #324.  It came together quite quickly once I decided on the sketch.

I saw the idea for the little tuft of hair and flower in the hair on a card by Chera Wiest.

Thanks for stopping by!
