Brand Ambassador Inspiration - WILD

Good morning

Anita here with some inspiration for you.  More often than not when crafting I reach for florals so I decided to go off on a tangent this time and picked out the WILD clear stamp set and a couple of co-ordinating stencils.

For my first two cards I combined the stamp set with the Tiger Print Stencil.  Here's the first one...

Rather than go with the traditional tiger stripe colours I thought I'd try tone on tone with black, and I love how this turned out.  I laid the stencil over some black cardstock and pressed through it with my VersaMark ink pad, going over it a few times to ensure all the areas were covered.  I then heat embossed the stripes in black, but this would work equally well with clear embossing powder too.  I die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle and then went over the surface with an anti-static powder tool before stamping the sentiment and paw print also in VersaMark, which were then heat embossed in gold and copper.  I then popped the panel up on 3D foam onto my card base.

And for my second card, a one layer card with a completely different feel using the same Tiger Print Stencil...

This time I used a heart die to make an aperture out of a scrap piece of card and used this as a stencil.  I ink blended onto my card base, first with Kitsch Flamingo Distress Ink, before placing the Tiger Print stencil over the top and inking over it with a Festive Berries Distress Ink.  I then simply finished by stamping the sentiment in black and adding some gems.

And for my final card I combined the stamp set with the Giraffe Print stencil...

I began with a die cut panel of light coloured kraft cardstock and stamped the word WILD in the centre.  I then masked the inside of the letters, by cutting out the sentiment which I had stamped onto post-it notes.  Next I masked off around the edges of the panel to leave a slim border and then ink blended through the Giraffe Print stencil using Distress Inks in Tea Dye and a touch of Rusty Hinge.  When all the masks were removed I then stamped the remainder of the sentiment in black.  To help the sentiment to stand out a little I added some Wink of Stella for some sparkle.

I had great fun making these and I hope you like them.  There is a third stencil in the series, the Zebra Print stencil, which I'm yet to get my hands on.  It's currently out of stock but please do check back at a later date if you want that one, I'm sure Bev is working to get this one back asap.

Thanks so much for joining me today, I hope to be back with more to share very soon.

Take care
