Spots, Animals and Bows....what more do you need?!

in , , , , , by Stacey Marsh Independent UK Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, May 29, 2019
Hi all,

Today's card is a celebration that this gorgeous Animal Outing Stamp Set is carrying over into the new 2019/20 Annual Catalogue and to let you know that from 4th June 2019, it is being offered in the new Cling mounted stamp, hooray!

I took inspiration for this card from the gorgeously talented Lyns Linds and a card that she posted last week featuring spots!  I am a big fan of spots and stripes so you would have seen many of these if you follow my blog and i'm quite often spotted wearing stripes!

For my background, I have used Sponge Daubers to create the spots.  Simply, I have tapped them in the ink pad and then straight onto the card!  I have used Bermuda Bay, Smoky Slate and Basic Gray which all go together beautifully.

I have added a piece of Whisper White Cardstock that has been die-cut using the new Nested Dies and I have laid it over the edge and cut off the excess shape.

The Linen Thread has been tied around the card and I have secured with a double bow.  The Rhino has been stamped using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and coloured in with the Light and Dark Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends.  I have added him to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals. 

The sentiment has been stamped onto Basic Gray Cardstock using Versamark and heat embossed with White Stampin' Emboss Powder.  

To finish, I have added a couple of silver sequins.

 If you have this stamp set on your wish list then you may want to buy it before the 3rd June as it is available as part of a bundle with the coordinating dies, saving you 10%.  From the 4th June, you will only be able to purchase the stamps and dies seperately.
I have used the following products and tools to put this project together:
