This week's Stamp Review Crew blog hop features the A Little Wild stamp set. It's such a cute set and the Stampin' Blends make the images super fun to color. If you get lost on the hop, want a full list of this week's blogs or want more information about the Stamp Review Crew just click the banner or link above.
If you didn't start with my blog you may have hopped over from Tanya Boser's blog, Tinkerin' in Ink. Tanya always has something to inspire me on her hop and today is no different!
I'll be honest and say before Stampin' Blends I may not have ordered this set. I had a aversion to stamps that required coloring. The Stampin' Blends have given me a whole new lease on ordering outline images! Take a look at how sweet these are.
The coordinating dies, Little Loves Framelits, cut out the back and front of each animal so they can be folded into a tag!
I used the bear and the lion on Valentine cards today. I was in a wild frenzy myself this weekend getting all my Valentine cards made! After die cutting the bear and the Lion I trimmed each animal off for use on two cards. Here's the first one.
This year I took a cue from a friend of mine and did mini cards for the grandkids Valentine cards. I made 3"x3" square cards and I used some of the Narrow Note cards too. They'll go along with a movie ticket and box of movie candy, so those sizes were perfect! I used the hill die from the In the Woods Framelits to make a green spot for the Soft Suede bear to sit. The hearts, from a die in the Be Mine Stitched Framelits, were adhered over the flower die from Little Loves. The Labeler Alphabet stamps came to my rescue again for the sentiment. Aren't the bees and beehive the cutests? They have dies in Little Loves to cut them out too. Dies make my life easier!
The second card used the Lion from A Little Wild.
When I started this card I realized this stamp set includes a stamp for the grass. :) After die cutting and coloring the lion I adhered him to the 3x3" card and stamped the grass along the edge. I wanted some of the grass to go over his paws. The card still needed something else to balance it out and the Layering Circle Dies helped me out on this one. I used a circle die to cut out the sun and added rays with a stamp in Pocketful of Sunshine. The "Wild about You" stamp says it all!
I made quite a few more Valentine cards Saturday but that's all with A Little Wild! So you're ready to hop on to the next blog, My Sandbox, where Nikki Spencer will share her cute, wild inspirations!
