Hello and thanks for stopping by today! This week the Stamp Ink Paper design team are stamping with a fun theme. A theme challenge makes it easy to adapt any stamp set to fit the need. New stamps are fun to experiment with and also a great opportunity to help teach the concept of building an Animal Outing Fancy Fold card. The coloring is simple but adding some dimension will help them come to life.

Animal Outing stamp set
Fancy fold cards are not always a giant undertaking but they can be intimidating. Here is how I approach each project; the finished card will fit into a standard envelope, so…… it can’t be too big a project for me to tackle. Putting it into perspective is a big help. Plus, Bronwyn’s tutorials are really easy to follow, step by step and loads of photos.
I had a vision of this card in my mind for weeks. From the colors I used and the dies. I worked at it in stages, first doing all the stamping and coloring then choosing which embossing folder to use. Each time, with smiles and grins because the Animal Outing stamp set is wonderful 🙂 . If you have not yet laid eyes on this stamp set, the drawn images are amazing!
Tips for this project
This Animal Outing fancy fold card design is perfect when I want to send a card that will be more than a card. Extremely sturdy and standing on it’s own, it really makes a statement.
The kangaroo image is all fussy cut after I colored it with an Aqua Painter and ink from stamp pads. It wasn’t tough going because I chose a large image to feature in tying the colors together into one unit.
The fussy cut branch and frog are adhered to the circle sentiment, positioned so as to be seen from the card front.
Did you spot a new ink color? Granny Apple Green is gorgeous and really stands out in the project. The background is stamped in several generations of varying ink, to give the look of dimension.
The tops of the project are die cut with Layering Circles Framelits dies and are partial die cuts.
