Happy Bird-Day

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Kelly Santi our challenge hostess for the month, continues to issue the challenges.

Apparently it’s World Rainforest Week (October 10-16). Create a card showing the rainforest or any animal you’d find in the rainforest (and/or trees, rivers, rainforest animals, etc) 

When I was going through some stamps recently, I came upon this set in my stash which I thought would be perfect for this challenge. So I pulled it out to use on my card today. This is MFT Stamps Toucan Do It stamp set.

For the background I created a stencilled panel using Taylored Expressions Mosaic Leaves stencil blending in Catherine Pooler inks in Sage, Grass Skirt, Lime Rickey and Eucalypts.

I then die cut this panel and a black cardstock using Taylored Expressions Square Block Cutting Plate.


It's been a while since I have used Karen Burniston's Spinner Square Pop-up die set, so I used that for the inside of the card. I used the same elements I used on the front of the card for the inside.

Here is a quick video to see my card in action.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:
