Leaping Lizards Birthday

10/15/22 Top 3 at The Crafter’s Cafe Challenge Blog!

Hey everybody! Happy Hump Day and happy early birthday to me! Tomorrow is my birthday and then Friday I have a consultation with a hand surgeon to talk about possible carpal tunnel release. Yay me. On a lighter note, I mentioned several days ago that I was invited to guest design for InkyStamper for the month of October, and I’m thrilled to share another guest design project using the super adorable Iguana stamps and die! The look on this guy’s face is hysterical as are all the different sentiments – I love this set! I created a half flap card with a birthday theme in my favorite shades of green which is only fitting for a lizard! ;)

I cut a standard A2 size side-folding card base from 110# Solar White cardstock and trimmed away the top half of the flap with my Fiskars 12″ SureCut Paper Trimmer. I cut three panels of varying shades of green from the Doodlebug Design Gingham-Linen Rainbow Petite Prints cardstock pad for the top half of the card and a panel from CutCardStock Pop Tone Limeade cardstock for the bottom flap. I hand-cut a tree limb from CutCardStock Vanilla Bean cardstock and adhered it to the bottom flap.

I stamped the iguana in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on 110# Solar White cardstock and colored him with alcohol markers. I cut him with the coordinating die and then adhered him to the tree limb. I stamped the sentiment on Solar White cardstock, trimmed it and adhered it to the top portion of the card on an adhesive foam strip. The finishing touch was adding a few green sequins I picked out of the Picket Fence Studios Rainbow Sequins.

The inside is very simple with another sentiment from the Iguana stamp set stamped in Tuxedo Black ink.

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
