Hello and welcome to another challenge, starting today, at Dies R Us.
Challenge #194 ~ Dad's/Masculine
(as long as you use a die that is sold at Dies R Us)
My little grandson graduated from Kindergarten. I made this card for him to celebrate this milestone in his young life :-)
This was one of those "I got to have" stamp and die sets :-) These chimps are just too darn cute and having a 5 year old grandson ... well, I just "had to have it" 😀
I started by stamping a bunch of images, and then coloured them using copic markers. Next I die cut them all. I also die cut the card frame and all other bits and pieces I wanted to use to create this "jungle" scene. Once all the die cutting and colouring was done, it was just a matter of playing around to put each little chimp where I wanted it. As a final touch, I added glassy accents to the trophy as well as to all the bananas. I'm hoping the little guy will love it 😀
Here is the list of supplies used to made this card, each linked to the Dies R Us store, for your convenience.
Marianne Design - DL Slimline Frames (Special Order Event)
Marianne Design - Hibiscus & Tropical Leaves (Special Order Event)
Heffy Doodle - Chimply the Best Stamps (Special Order Event)
Heffy Doodle - Chimply the Best Dies (Special Order Event)
I purchased the Marianne Design dies and the Heffy Doodle stamps & dies during one of the International Dies sales events that Dies R Us have every so often. The best way to know about these sales is to subscribe to their newsletter HERE.
