Treasure Chest - Animal Kingdom

It's time for another blog hop from the Gina K CSS alumni team. Carolina has come up with a new theme called Treasure Chest - this month's treasure chest is a tribute to the Animal Kingdom and we were each asked to create a card or project that features one of Gina K's animal sets.

You should have arrived at my blog from Meisje's blog. If so, you are on the right path. If not you can start at the Stamp TV main page and start from the top.

I chose the Whatever Floats Your Boat stamp set and made this little baby card.


I punched out my sets of squares from Gina K Spring Colors CS in the blue and pink. I adhered them to Pure Luxury Chocolate base weight CS - then I ran that whole layer through my Swiss Dots CB embossing folder.

The focal point of my card is the sweet giraffe image which is matted with several layers and then popped up on dimensionals.  I bent the "window" up for a 3D effect - and tucked the sentiment flag under the giraffe layer.   I added a few pearls for an accent. I'm sorry I don't remember where I saw this layout but I thought it was perfect for my card.


Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (March 1st), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs and that commenter will get a stamp set of their choice valued up to $24.95!

It's time to HOP along to Peggy Weiman's blog.

Thanks for stopping by - your comments are always encouraging and you make my day!!!
Hugs n Smiles,
