Renee presented the first Little Paper Shop Design Team Challenge to the team a couple of weeks ago. I am totally excited to be able to show my version to y'all today! I have been waiting to show you this beauty for some time now and I really hope you like it.
The challenge rules were:
- use only 2 colors (any two plus one neutral if desired)
- use one May release stamp set
- no ribbon!
We really want you stampers in the blogosphere to play along, so if you choose to make a card and upload it to SCS please use the code LPSDTC01.
I knew right away that I wanted to use the LPS set 'Jungle Fun' for a belated birthday card. The sentiment from the set 'Life is a Zoo' expressed my reasoning behind the lack of timeliness of this card. But, I think the cuteness of this lion will just melt the heart of the recipient to the point that they may just have to forgive me!
I always have a lot of fun with challenges because I find that they really stretch my imagination. For instance, keeping this card with just So Saffron and two tones of 'Sand' made a really cool almost monotone card.
I used So Saffron for the base (but I guess you could have deduced that, silly me!). I inked up my retired SU! Background, Linen, and stamped it in So Saffron on the base. Then I layered the base with a piece of sand colored cardstock and graduation stamped the leaf from JF in Real Rust. Next I stamped my Lion in Memento Tuxedo black and colored him in with R20 and YR31, my new favorite combo. He is planted in E33. My final touch was stamping 'Life's a Zoo' in Memento TB and punching it out to be 1 inch in diameter and nesting it in metal tag.
Quick and Easy!
Hope you enjoyed it and please check out the other DT's cards (their links are on my sidebar!).
Also, T minus one day until the big LSAT, I can't believe it is almost here!
OH, and HAPPPPYYYY Father's Day DAD(yep, he reads this!)
