Social Stamping Blog Host - Animals


Welcome to our latest Social Stampers Blog Hop for this week we are showcasing the theme “Animals”.

I recently received a Stampin’ Up! order and in the BBB (Big Brown Box) was the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper, which is available for purchase as of the 3rd June 2020. The DSP is of photographic images and visual textures which I thought would work well with the Nature’s Beauty Stamp Set.

I love the different coloured tones of the DSP, so I coordinate the water coloured deer using Early Espresso, Cajuin Craze and Sahara Sand. The dear fits nicely in the die which is from the Tasteful Labels Dies.

I’ve placed some strips of the DSP under the deer, giving the card some different wood textures. The panels of DSP and Early Espresso Cardstock have been curled at the corners and I used the blade of my paper snips to ruff up the edges of the DSP. The panel of Early Espresso Cardstock is embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.

The sentiment is from the Seaside Notions Stamp Set, stamped in Early Espresso onto Crumb Cake Cardstock.

Make sure you see everyone’s amazing creations with the Animal theme in our latest Social Stamping Blog Host.
