Jan-June Mini Catalogue Blog Hop - masculine card with Wildlife Wonder

Wildlife Wonder Stampin Up card ideas
 

It’s been a long while since I took part in a blog hop but January always brigs with it good intentions so here I am. Today I invite you to hop around the world to see some amazing projects featuring brand new Stampin’ Up!® products from the January-June Mini Catalogue.

Stampin Up Mini Catalogue blog hop

I have a project to show you today which uses the lovely Wildlife Wonder stamp set. We love bears, wolves and owls in this family, so I couldn’t resist adding this set to my order. Bears top that list so my first card with this set uses the lovely bear image.

This is a Distinktive stamp set, which means you don’t have to do anything clever to get that amazing shaded image on the bear. Just ink it up in a colour of your choice – I used Early Espresso – and stamp.

After fussy cutting the bear, I stamped a simple scene in Old Olive ink using the stamps in the set. There's a “splodge” which is useful to create a base for the bear to stand on, and a simple grassy sprig which can be used at different heights and angles to create a scene.

I covered the whole of the front of the card base with some woodgrain paper from the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper pack. This whole pack of paper from the Annual Catalogue is perfect to go with the animal images from this Wildlife Wonder stamp set.

The moody sky was created using the fabulous Blending Brushes and some Daffodil Delight ink, blended into a little Old Olive at the base. These brushes are a delight to use and really raise your projects to the next level.

The Wildlife Wonder set is a really great set for making masculine cards. I know a lot of people struggle to make cards for men but this will make it easy. I have to say though, as someone who loves bears, wolves and owls, I’d be more than happy to receive a card made with this set, too!
