One of my favorite items in the new Stampin’ Up! catalog is the A Little Wild stamp set. I just love the little elephant and I love that the animals have fronts and backs and the dies cut out both into a little tag. You can use them like that or cut them apart.
And another one of my favorites is the new Embossing Paste. That along with the dies and palette knives make it easy and fun to create interesting textured backgrounds.
For my card I paired them together – I created this for a swap card – so I’ve already made a whole stack of these.
I used the brick mask from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks and a small amount of the Embossing Paste. I didn’t want full coverage on my card stock so I just smeared it through the mask where I wanted it. Every card turns out just a little different. The paste dries quickly if you are using a thin layer. I wish you could feel the texture!
The little elephant was stamped on Shimmery White card stock and then I watercolored with Soft Sky ink using my Aquapainter. I also lightly watercolored on the cloud – which is really the Pretty Label punch. I finished the card with some Pool Party Baker’s Twine around the Crumb Cake Layer.
You can get the A Little Wild stamp set as part of a bundle with the Little Loves Framelit Dies. Be sure to look for bundles throughout the catalog – they save you 10%.
