This week it is Anything Goes over at The House that Stamps Built so the field is wide open as far as creating.
I have had this image for a bit and have been wanting to use it - you see I kind of like giraffes, and this one is no exception 5301M Giraffe and frame stamped in Memento Cocoa brown ink and cut out around the frame. For my sentiment I used 5806H Happiness is. I had some old world map pper in my stash so I used that for my background - then this luscious brown leather look (and feel) strip down the middle I have had well almost forever. I bought a pack of asst. papers at a small stamp store in Washington, MO. many years ago and have used bits and pieces of it when I think about it. It worked perfect for this image. Some chocolate pearls and I think the card is complete.
Now it is your turn to make a card using the challenge of anything goes - and as you can see there are a lot of possibilities for this challenge. You have a full month to enter our challenge to win. You do not have to use Repeat Impressions stamps but if you do you will be entered twice for the drawing of a $25 gift certificate to Repeat Impressions.
If you look on my right side bar I also have a discounted coupon for you to use when you go shopping at Repeat Impressions.
Now why not take a look at our DT Rock Stars for inspiration and to get you started.
Awesome card, Shirley! Perfect pairing of stamp and paper -- everything goes together perfectly!
Such a cute card Shirley!! Love the browns and your papers really compliment the giraffe beautifully!! Always fun to pull out something that hasn't been used in a while!! :) Hope to pull out my new Repeat Impressions stamps for this! HUGS
I LOVE every bit of this card Shirley. Fantastic image and the map paper is perfect for the background..Loz
Fantastic card Shirley, like the monochromatic colors on this and your paper choice, great saying too!
I kind of like giraffes, too! They can be cute or majestic or even sweet. A very versatile animal. Your card is wonderful. I love the giraffe image.
I love giraffes, too, Shirley, and I think your design is so fabulous with that background! Did you watch the live cam of the giraffe birth that happened, um, about a year ago? Her name was April, if I remember right, and it was so cool! Hugs, Darnell
This is a fabulous way to use the giraffe stamp, Shirley!!! I love your sketch and yes, that bg paper is perfect.
Fabulous card! The papers are perfect!!
Fun card Shirley. Love the background designer paper. I agree with Darnell - kind of reminds me of April and the birth of the baby.
Love it! Great card, and the papers you used are perfect!!!
