It's time for a classic mash-up dare on the Daring Cardmakers blog - it's the kind of challenge I always love!
Combing new stash and old stash - thank Lythan for this challenge!
It was the perfect nudge to try out my shiny new Lil' Inker stamps and dies for a fun card for a special birthday boy.
I had an idea in my head - needless to say, that idea was very different to what turned out... BUT it did involve the boy collection pack of My Mind's Eye Alphabet Soup (I loved the Alphabet Soup releases) and the I'm All, You're All stamps and coordinating dies... so that was good.
Here's the final creation:
Paper: MME, AC glitter paper
Stamps: Lil' Inker Designs, Sassafras Lass, Lawn Fawn
Dies: Lil' Inker Designs, Lawn Fawn, PTI, MFT
Die-cut elements: MME
Other: Promarkers, 3D foam
I used a very old giraffe stamp by Sassafras Lass from the Jungle Pals collection and I found the perfect stamps for the "Wooo hooo!!" bit - the birdies by Lawn Fawn! I'm pretty chuffed with the end result and that I actually managed to squeeze all the elements on that card! It was touch and go and one point. LOL
There are some fantastic old and new mash-ups from the design team over on the blog - so do go check them out!
