Hello … bonjour! I’m delighted to be back today, for my fourth week Guest Designing with the talented Simon Says Stamp Wednesday team … thanks so much for your lovely comments on last week’s critter cards!
Our new challenge this week is ‘Food and/or Drink‘ … and we’re showcasing products from Mama Elephant. You don’t need to use Mama Elephant goodies to join in … but we’d love to see them if you have some! As always, if you play along, you’re in with a chance of winning a $50 gift voucher to spend at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp store … imagine moving those goodies from wish list to basket!
After saying last week that I don’t make many cards with critters on them … here I am with another couple … it just so happens they come bearing gifts … of a sort! Here’s the first, a fun little goat, his beard all brushed for the party, carrying the birthday cupcake …
An MFT wonky stitched panel, cut with Mama Elephant Inline Letters dies and stamped with the party goat from Simon’s Birthday Farm Animals. He’s coloured with Promarkers, has Glossy Accent/Enamel Accent eyes and his cupcake has shimmery frosting, courtesy of Wink of Stella. The base was ombré sponged with Evergreen Bough and Cracked Pistachio Distress Inks and water sprinkled, before the panel was popped up on foam tape over it.
So, the food/drink was obvious on that one … are you wondering where it on this next one?
… keep reading if you haven’t guessed already! Here’s a dotted die cut frame (Gina Marie Designs, thanks to sweet Michele), backed with black and adhered flat to the base, with a bunny from Mama Elephant’s Up and Away set (a Lake House goodie) sitting in the corner. He was coloured with Promarkers and liberally covered with Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle … and is holding onto a die cut pastel rainbow smooshed Painted Hello from Simon Says Stamp, popped up on black craft foam. I finished off with the stamped sentiment from Winnie & Walter (Sentimental:Endearments).
So what did you guess was the food/drink? Surely not that cute little rabbit … or hare? What about the sorbet colours in the sentiment? Nope, neither of those … it’s that tiny stamped sentiment … after all, most of us have munched our way through a sweetie or two in our time! You didn’t really think I’d be calling that sweet bunny food did you???
If you haven’t been there already, do pop over to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday blog to check out all the scrumptious food/drink cards from the Design Team … you’re sure to come away wanting to create! I do hope you’ll have chance to join us this week.
Finally for today, to all of you gathering to celebrate Thanksgiving tomorrow, I wish you a blessed day, filled with love, gratitude, family and friends! Thanks so much, as ever, for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy! Anita 🙂
