For Someone Special

Hi friends! Happy Friday to you all! It’s going to be an absolutely gorgeous day out here in southwestern Colorado! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I have one more card to share this morning that I created for Prickley Pear Stamps using the adorable Hello Jack stamp set with coordinating Hello Jack die set from their new Jack and Lily Collection! Jack and Lily both love to play dress-up and love to wear their rain boots, so this card features Jack with a bow tie and rain boots, which I created in one of my favorite blue and green color combos!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock along with layering panels from Hot Off The Press Gingham #2 6×6 double-sided papers (large and small gingham) with green stripe washi tape adhered at the seam. I adhered stitched die cut ovals cut from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and CutCardStock Basis Blue cardstock to the card front. I then stamped Jack and all his clothing and accessories on Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock using the Hello Jack stamp set, colored them with alcohol markers and cut them with the coordinating Hello Jack die set, and adhered them to the card front on the die cut ovals. I added stitched die cut circles cut from the white and blue cardstock on which I stamped the sentiment from the Truck stamp set. I added two green enamel dots to the upper left corner and Ranger Glossy Accents to Jack’s rain boots and set the card base aside to dry.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a strip of large gingham paper used on the front and a narrow strip of CutCardStock Basis Blue cardstock. I added a die cut sentiment created from the CUTplorations Skinny Sentiments and layered the panel on blue cardstock.

And one more look… I’m just tickled with how this turned out! These kid stamps are just so stinkin’ cute and so fun to create with! The sky is literally the limit with what you can create with Jack and Lily, their clothing and their accessories!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  2. A great colour combination, and one of my favourites too. I love how rainboots come in lots of fun designs now – when I was a kid they were all black. So glad you shared with us at the Crafters Cafe, come back soon. CarolG
