A Wild & Wonderful Birthday!

The Summer of Stamping at Ellen Hutson continues this week with another new release, and today we’re celebrating with a hop over on instagram — with PRIZES! YEAH!

I wanted to go a little more in-depth on my cards than would fit over on insta and give you a few tips and tricks for using the new EBE It’s a Jungle set!

I ended up making two cards with these, one clean and simple and one where I just went WILD stamping alllll the things! Check ’em out:

I think either one would be perfect for masculine birthdays!

Here’s a closer look at clean and simple version:

And here’s some tips and tricks:

  • I used EBE Organic Elements to ground the stamping — note that I didn’t use a single green ink on here, the green was just from overlapping chiffon and cummerbund! Love that.
  • My favorite part of the card? That patterned strip on the left! That was made by repeat stamping the palm tree!
  • Last but not least — I didn’t want to take away from the card too much but felt like it needed a little something extra — so enter these clear droplets!

And that was that!

Now on to the wild child:

I had a blast stamping this one! Here are some tips:

  • I started out by stamping the sentiment first to help with positioning.
  • Then I stamped the rest of the elements from It’s a Jungle, and then I stamped the Organic Elements shapes over top. I kinda think of this as “coloring” with stamps! Keepin’ it simple for summer!
  • After the card was finished, I thought it needed a little extra touch and grabbed my trusty EBE Essential rectangles and cut out that sentiment. Then I mounted it on the inside of the card — and for an added twist, I added the rectangle frame upside-down! Love how this turned out!

So which is your favorite? The wild child or the clean and simple version? I’d love to hear!
