A Little Wild | Crazy Crafters Blog Hop

Welcome and thank you for joining me for a Crazy Crafters team blog hop.

One of my favourite new stamp sets in the 2017 Annual Catalogue is A Little Wild and its co-ordinating framelits. This adorable set makes some super cute tags, but the images can be stamped on their own too by masking or only inking part of the stamp.  I've used this set to make my super cute cards.

The layout for my cards was inspired by a cute piggy card by Katy Harrison.

Here are my cards:

I made my girly Powder Pink card first and then decided I had to make a Soft Sky boy version too.

By only inking up half of the adorable bear stamp in this set with Crumb Cake ink, I created a repetitive pattern alternating with the front and back of the bear.

Using Early Espresso ink on Crumb Cake cardstock, I stamped and then cut out using the coordinating framelits, an extra bear for each card. I've added a little colour to these bears, by starting with my white Stampin' Chalk marker and then adding colour using my Stampin' Write markers. The bee is coloured using Crushed Curry and Early Espresso (no white under this colour) and the ears are Melon Mambo for the pink card and Marina Mist for the blue card. This bear is adhered to the card using some mini dimensionals.

The "love" sentiment (from the Sunshine Wishes thinlits set) is die cut from Very Vanilla & Crumb Cake cardstock and adhered together slightly off centre to give a shadow look. The vine is cut from Early Espresso cardstock. I've placed a piece of Powder Pink Finely Woven Ribbon (for the girly card) and Soft Sky Classic Weave Ribbon (for the boy card) underneath these die cuts.

To finish off the card, I've added a layered piece of coloured cardstock to match the ribbon on each card.

These would make for super cute Baby Congratulations, plus they would work for any occasion cards as well. Hope you like them.

I have included my cute Baby cards in this months International Highlights - Theme: Change of Life Circumstances.

  5. Hey, Kristen, This cards are adorable. I love how simple but so sweet the stamping looks. You know I am going to have to buy this bundle lol.
