Danielle has also had a tough year, which you can read about and possibly help with here, and so she needs a little party with some wild animals (yes, I'm including myself) today.
So she's celebrating her company's birthday with a week-long blog hop with some great friends, and I'm so honored that she included me!
We also have a Product Focus today at Splitcoast, featuring some fantastic Color Box inks, and so I'm putting my hands together today to make some super fun cards with pretty ink and adorable stamps and dies!
First up - a little non-traditional giraffe action with her Wild Ones stamp set and the Hooray bundle. ADORABLE!!! I colored the giraffe with Copics (YR16, YR07, Y06, YG23, FYG2), and the cardstock is Lemon Lime Twist with matching Lemon Lime Twist Designer Series Paper. Her sequins in this release are called Like Magic, and they are! They picked up the green so beautifully, but also have blues and other colors in them. They'd match whatever they are put on. To attach sequins, I always use the Mono Metal glue in the list below.
Then I thought I'd switch back to a more realistic giraffe, because I couldn't stop stamping him, and I used the Color Box stencil with two of their inks on my Clarity Stamp Stencil Brushes and the same sentiments.
Happy birthday Danielle! I can't wait to see what's next for you!
