You Bet Giraffe I Love You Paper Players Challenge PP Sunday Stamps Challenge SSC277

Feb 20, 2022

It's Sunday and time for new challenges at The Paper Players and Sunday Stamps 

The Amazing Ann is our hostess this week at The Paper Players.  She has a FUN "CLEAN and SIMPLE" Challenge for all of us.  The theme is "Wild about Wildlife"!  

Remember:      Clean and Simple Rules:

  • Have minimal layers and embellishments
  • Have plenty of open space
  • Are simple and uncluttered

Sunday Stamps has a fun color challenge this week.   I love when I can combine two challenges!  

We can't wait to see what you create!  Have fun!

Use a minimum of 3 colors and a neutral of your choice.

My card is created on a white card base.  I added a layer of blue using a stitched rectangle die.  The top layer is white and cut with a stitched die.  The giraffe is cut using a die set called Joyful Giraffe. I used Kraft and Early Expresso papers on the giraffe.  The sentiment is stamped in black using the Giraffe Greetings stamp set.  I really wanted to add embellishments, but I kept in CAS for the challenge.
