Hello my friends! It’s Stacy here from CraftaholicMomma up today on the Scrapping for Less blog. Today I have a card for you using the Stampendous Giraffe stamp and die combo set. There are two things that I really like about this set. One, you can take the background die and use it with any stamp you have in your collection to make a tree scene. You can make it like the safari I made here, or you could use it as a meadow tree or Halloween dead tree just by changing up the colors of card stock you cut. Two, the giraffe set is so cute and versatile. You could mirror stamp a second one and entwine their necks around each other for an adorable love you card. There’s just so much you can do with it!!
I masked off the card layer with a circle die and masking paper. I used blending brushes and Distress Oxide inks to create the horizon and safari sky. I die cut the tree with black card stock and made it into a frame with a second circle die from my stash. I adhered this over the inked background with liquid adhesive. I stamped, die cut and colored the giraffe with Copic Markers. Stamping the sentiment and popping the giraffe and card layer up on foam adhesive finished it off nicely.
I think it fits in nicely with this month’s theme of “In the Wild”. I would love to go on an African safari someday. I just LOVE giraffes and elephants!
The kit will be revealed this coming Saturday, July 27 at 12:00 am EST. If you’re interested in signing up for a subscription to save even more money be sure to do so before 10 pm EST the night before. (Friday night).
I used a sketch #256 from Operation Write Home. Click on the OWH icon to go to their sketches.
Here’s my card! This kit is pack full of super fun goodies! All of our designers have done an amazing job this week with their sneak peeks. See you Saturday!!
For the month of July the theme is Under the Stars. We are celebrating nature and camping, spending time with Mother Nature.
Tomorrow my husband, my daughter, my mother and father in law and myself are headed “Up North” for our annual vacation. I live in Southeast Minnesota. We rent a cabin at a small family owned resort in a lake in Central Northern Minnesota, approximately an hour from the Canadian Border. The “boys” spend their days fishing and the “girls” hang out by the cabin and enjoy the relaxation.
This is a picture of my husband (right) and my father in law (left) with their catch.
So I thought I would turn this set of stickers by Paper House into a cute sign for our cabin and leave it there as a thank you gift to the resort owners. They are super sweet people who go out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible.

I stamped the images onto the Bo Bunny patterned paper and then cut them out with my Brother Scan n Cut. You certainly could easily fussy cut these out as well.
I used a cloud stencil and Distress Oxide ink onto Bristol card stock to make the sky. The rest of the card was very easy to assemble. I just layered up pattern paper for the blue “lake” layer and green “ground” layer. The trees are glued down flat but the tents are popped up on foam adhesive.
I used a warm gray copic marker to give a tiny bit of shadow and dimension to the tents. I stamped the sentiment and called it good.
It makes me think of the cabin on the lake we rent for a week in mid-July up in northern Minnesota. This photo is from the front yard of our cabin. Isn’t that just paradise?
For us Minnesotans, relaxing at the lake is our idea of heaven! What is your favorite way to relax on vacation?

Hi Crafters, it’s Stacy from CraftaholicMomma today on the Scrapping for Less blog. I’ve been thoroughly enchanted by all the “slimline” cards people are making so I’ve been making a few myself. I told Teresa I had this idea to take all of the critters (aside from one or two) and make this mesmerizing under water magical scene. I think I could live under water if I had all of these beautiful creatures for neighbors.
You are going to LOVE this kit!! In fact I predict you’ll go bonkers for it!!
My card measures 3 1/2″ by 8 1/2″.
That’s a 7″ x 8 1/2″ piece of card stock scored at 3 1/2″ on the 7″ side. They fit in either a #9 or #10 (business) size envelope.
