Animal Antics | Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

October 17, 2018

Hello friends! Today I created a card for Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. This week’s theme is “Animal Antics”! For this challenge, I decided to play with a few oldies but goodies from Lawn Fawn. They have some of my favorite critter stamps and it’s been a while since I’ve used my ever-growing Lawn Fawn stash.

wed-designerspotlight-headerI started by stamping out the Lawn Fawn Baaah Humbug stamp set out of Versamark ink and coloring with Copic markers. I drew in a beauty mark and some lashes for my little girl sheep with a Copic pen just to give her a little “va-va-va-vroom”!

To build my background, I cut the largest heart from Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Hearts in my red background that I cut to be 5.5 x 5.5. Then, I die cut the largest heart from Lacy Heart Stackable Lawn Cuts onto a piece of kraft paper. I then used the largest heart from Outside In Stitched Hearts again to create a delicate frame for my opening.ย  This was the hardest part of this project since I had to be very careful lining up the dies to get this little frame just right. After that, the rest of the card is super simple!

I glued my kraft heart frame onto my red background piece. I filled the back w/ foam tape and mounted it onto a 5.5 x 5.x4 card base. I then put some foam tape in the back of my two little sheep and added them to my card. I used some dye ink to stamp my mistletoe. I glued on the hat and bow to my little sheep. At this point, the original plan would have my card complete but I felt it was missing something. I took out some Versamark and stamped the little bow and the holly berries from the Baah Humbug stamp set all over the red background and I loved this subtle detail! My card is done!

I hope you like my card and I inspired you to join in the fun at Simon Says Stamp this week! As with any challenge, there’s an amazing prize up for grabs!
