Stampin’ Up! Wildlife Wonder for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I made a masculine thank you card with the wonderful Stampin’ Up! Wildlife Wonder cling stamp set. You can find the supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.

We have a theme challenge this week and we are making cards with critters! How fun!

And I’m entering my card in the challenge at the Card Concept #177. The theme for this Challenge is ‘Make it Masculine’ and I was inspired by the plaids and outdoor themes in the inspiration picture to make a clean and layered card. Here is the inspiration picture:

I adhered a panel of plaid He’s the Man designer series paper to an Early Espresso mat and wrapped a length of natural ribbon around it, securing it in the back with tape. I adhered it to a Crumb Cake card base with dimensionals. I used a blending brush to blend Soft Suede ink on a wood grained panel of Heart and Home DSP and I love how it came out! I adhered that panel to an Early Espresso mat and then popped it on the card front with dimensionals.

I stamped the wolf from the Stampin’ Up! Wildlife Wonder stamp set in Early Espresso on Basic White and colored the wolf with Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends and the rock in Gray Granite. I stamped the image again on masking paper and fussy cut it out. I covered the wolf with the mask and stamped the ground in Old Olive multiple times with the ground stamp.

I cut a circle in another sheet of masking paper and used it to make a Mango Melody sun behind the wolf with a blending brush. I covered the sun with the circle mask and blended the sky background in Balmy Blue ink with a blending brush. I removed all the masks and stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Wildlife Wonder Stamp set in Early Espresso ink. I adhered the wolf panel to an Early Espresso mat and adhered it to the card front with liquid glue. I finished the card with three rustic metallic dots.

For the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Wildlife Wonder stamp set in Early Espresso on a Basic White panel. I stamped the plant in Old Olive and colored the tops with light Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blend. I blended Soft Suede on another woodgrain panel of Heart and Home DSP and adhered it to the side of the panel with liquid glue. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

The Stampin’ Up! Wildlife Wonder stamp set is another in a long line of gorgeous Stampin’ Up! natural wildlife stamp sets, and it’s another winner! These are perfect for masculine cards for any occasion and I have always enjoyed making natural backgrounds using different coloring techniques.

Stampin’ Up! Wildlife Wonder Birthday Card

Happy Saturday! I love stamp sets that depict wild animals and the Stampin’ Up! Wildlife Wonder is a great one! I used the wonderful wild bear in today’s card with the gorgeous Beauty of the Earth designer series paper for a simple layered masculine birthday card. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I started by stamping the birthday sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Wildlife Wonder cling stamp set in Early Espresso on a panel of the Beauty of the Earth designer series paper and adhering the panel to the front of a Soft Suede card base with liquid glue.

I embossed a panel of Mossy Meadow with the Bark 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the card front. I stamped the bear from the Stampin’ Up! Wildlife Wonder stamp set in Cinnamon Cider on a Sahara Sand panel to make a brown bear. I stamped the ground stamp in Mossy Meadow under the bear.

I adhered the bear panel to a Soft Suede mat and adhered the layered panel to the card front with dimensionals. I finished off the card with some Pebbles enamel shapes on the ground.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Wildlife Wonder stamp set in Early Espresso on a Basic White panel and stamped the cool owl in Cinnamon Cider next to it. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of DSP and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

I didn’t use the wolf image from the Stampin’ Up! Wildlife Wonder stamp set in today’s card, but that is another wonderful one that I will use next time. This stamp set can easily coordinate with lots of designer series papers for a great outdoors card and is wonderful with many woodsy stamped or die cut backgrounds. It’s a must have for masculine cards, especially for guys who love the outdoors!
