Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew's Wildlife Wonder edition! The "Crew" is a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world who pick a stamp set or bundle to highlight on the first and third Mondays of each month, with a bonus hop if there is a fifth Monday like today! If you landed here from Holly's blog, welcome! There are four of us today so it will be a quick hop.
Wildlife Wonder is a ten piece cling (red rubber) set with fab outdoorsy images which are perfect for guy cards. With several male birthdays coming up, I made two birthday cards for today's hop.
For the first one, I blended Misty Moonlight onto a Boho Blue card base. A 2" x 4-1/4" piece of Boho Blue was embossed (Metal Plate 3D) and matted on Basic White before being adhered to the front.
I used the 2-3/8" circle punch to create a mask with copy paper. After the wolf was stamped through the opening I used Blending Brushes to add a Misty Moonlight sky and Pebbled Path boulder. This was then die cut (Stylish Shapes Dies) and popped up on dimensionals.
The greeting was stamped and fussy cut and added with more dimensionals.
For the second card, I stamped the bear using Early Espresso (with a Basic Gray shadow underneath) and die cut him with Countryside Corners Dies. The Black & White Gingham Ribbon was colored with a Light Pecan Pie Stampin' Blend and stapled on.
The bear was popped up on Pecan Pie Glorious Gingham DSP and then popped on Basic Black, both also die cut.
The background was embossed with the crosshatch Basics 3D folder, and after stamping the greeting, the ends were cut with the Banners Pick-A-Punch. Some Rustic Metallic Dots were added to complete the card.
