Wild About You

4 500pxl Wild About You - Holly Stene

I hope you had a great weekend.  Happy Columbus Day or here in Portland Happy Indigenous People’s Day!  Our roof is still under construction. The roofers even came on Saturday and got dumped on in the early afternoon, but when we showed them the leaks coming from our roof beam during the down pour they went back up and worked more to get the leak area completed so no more leaks!  Woohoo!  They thought they could finish it up on Saturday, but our roof is deceptively large, six large flat areas.  I am so thankful they went back up there after getting soaked.

Today’s post is the fourth design we created in September’s Class.  I just love the Go Wild Designer Series Paper Stack.  I laugh whenever I say this because I know this means I’m getting old.  Yikes!  Lol!  I still think this card is fun and I love the mix if animal prints AND I finally gave the Alphabet Rotary Stamp a go to create the cute sentiment.  I CASE’d this fun, clean and simple layout from a fellow demonstrator Holly Stene with a few “Carol” additions.  Thank you Holly!

BASE CARD:  Starts with Sahara Sand, then layered with Basic Black and Whisper White.  The Cheetah print has a bit of Sahara Sand which is how the base ties in with the DSPS prints.

FOCAL POINT:  They are the fun animal print squares from the Go Wild Designer Series Paper Stack.  I framed each square with Basic Black to give a polished looked.  The square are popped with Stampin’ Dimensionals… add more height.  Lol!

SENTIMENT:  I finally gave the Alphabet Rotary Stamp a whirl on this design.  It’s great for creating those out of the box sentiments that we need sometimes.  It is stamped with VersaMark ink onto a Basic Black strip and heat embossed in White and then cut apart.  They are popped with Stampin’ Dimensionals onto a Sahara Sand band that I did my subtle texture go-to Faux Suede technique.  Love it!!!

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope you have a great Monday!
