Wild About You

Hi All!

I can't believe it's Thursday already! This week is just flying by! I have another Whimsy Stamps sneak peek for you today to continue with our Whimsy Stamps Sneak Peek Week. My fellow designer Hanne also has a little something to show you on her blog too, be sure to check it out!

I was inspired by the card Deb made yesterday for her sneak peek. She created a brilliant stair fold card using the new Princess Emma stamp. I've been wanting to try out this fold for a while, so here's what I came up with....

A wild bunch we have here...these are Whimsy Lion, Giraffe, and Monkey! They will all be available for purchase on Monday, June 1st. The actual stamp sizes may slightly differ to these images as these are digital print outs. To make the steps/stairs cut a piece of card stock 10.5 X 5 inches, then score at 1.25, 2.5, 4.25, 6, and 8.25 inches. Fold and decorate!

As luck may have it, this card also fits some challenges too! First, the challenge at Charisma Cardz which was Going Dotty. I used some dotted and circle paper on the front piece of the "steps." Next, the challenge over at Truly Scrumptious was to make a card with more than one fold. I think this step/stair card qualifies for that! Cute Card Thursday was a Bit O Bling. I added some rhinestones to the "sky" in the monkey panel to create some stars. And lastly, the challenge at Everybody Art was to make something 3D. This card is obviously 3D, but I also popped up all the heads/faces on the animals to create more depth with the images. Kind of hard to tell in this photo.

Thanks for stopping by today! I'll be back tomorrow with a little something different to go along with our Whimsy Stamps Sneak Peek Week! Stay tuned!

Happy Stamping!
