Shopping Our Stash Challenge #16


The SOS Challenge for this week
is "Birds, Bugs or Beasts"! Go through your stash and get out your images/stamps/papers etc. relating to Birds, Bugs or Beasts (no people) and create. Think monsters, bugs, butterflies, animals, ogres and so forth. I won an American Crafts collection called Campy Trails awhile back that was just the perfect thing for this challenge. Here is what I came up with...


I made my project a shaped easel card
following Debbie Carriere's tutorial here. This is the first one I had ever done and found it quite easy and fun to boot. 


I used Kraft cardstock for my
base along with the Campy Trails DP and embellishments. The base was cut with the Spellbinder's Labels One die.


The mini blossoms are from
I Am Roses and the leaves were cut with the Sizzix Branch w/Leaves die with Kraft cardstock. Be sure to check out the projects made by the Design Team... there are some really clever ideas... like Lauren's.
Thank you for your visit!

I LOVE this, Linda! Lime green/white/black is one of my favorite color combos, and the little punch of orange gives your cute critter card a WOW factor. Fantastic!
