Welcome to our 2nd VC Rocks Blog Hop of 2012!
I am so honored to get to stamp and share cards with such talented ladies on this blog hop! There is a card featured on our homepage, www.vcrocks.blogspot.com.
This hop will feature cards created in many different sizes and shapes. I was boring because I made cards that are the standard 5 1/2 inches x 4 1/4 inches. However, I wanted to show what could be made with one stamp set, "Animal Talk" and one set of Designer Series Paper, "Floral District."
My first card was actually created with our Sketch Frenzy Friday sketch. This card gave me the idea to make a set of cards using the same stamp set and paper. "Animal Talk" is fun and the bright, cheery colors of "Floral District" paper seemed like a match made in Heaven.
In two of the cards, I used both stamps that had both the animal language and the translation. In the cat card, I just stamped the animal talk and part of the translation on the inside of the card.
I left the inside of the bird card blank so I could write whatever I wanted inside. It may end up being a birthday card that I write "Happy Bird-day!" inside. It's softer colors are a bit of a change from the other cards, but it is still colorful.
There are always so many fun new products when a new Stampin' Up catalog is released. These cards showcase two of those great products! They also show that you don't have to have everything at once to make awesome new cards. (Dave Ramsey would be proud!)
I used the following products to make all four of these Stampin' Up cards:
Animal Talk Stamp Set
Rose Red, Melon Mambo, Tangerine Tango, Lucky Limeade, Baja Breeze, Rich Razzleberry and Early Espresso Stampin' Write Markers
Whisper White, Rose Red, Melon Mambo, Tangerine Tango, Lucky Limeade, Baja Breeze, and Rich Razzleberry Card Stock
