Happy Tuesday! Got a wonderful share for Try Stampin on Tuesday today!
We have a new layout challenge –
Challenge #366. Optional Theme : Critter Crazy
I immediately went to this soon-to-retire stamp set, We Must Celebrate, from the Occasions Catalog because of all the cute animals!
I stamped the focal image. Then I realized it was slightly larger than the framelit I was using. No problem! I just cut around the ears, foot and tail of the animals to make it work! I love how those parts hang over.
To highlight the animals, I colored the background using the lighter Blends markers in Pool Party. This was accented by the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper. Sadly, it recently went on the retired list, sold out quickly, and is no longer available.
The other Design Team members created some wonderful cards on the Try Stampin on Tuesday blog. You should check them out.
You can create a card using our challenge and upload it to our blog or Facebook page. Hope to see you there!
