Recently I pulled out a long-forgotten stamp set by Melanie Muenchinger called "Just so Hippy" and made a card with the lovable giraffe in the set. I colored his heart-shaped spots with a Copic R22 to match the Snippet of dsp I found in my box. The brown ribbon is from a very old pack of self-adhesive ribbon I bought from QVC eons ago! I pulled the sticky stuff from the back, but you can still see where the adhesive penetrated the ribbon over time and left a big dark mark. To distract the eyes from that, I used a snippet of matching polka dot ribbon to tie a knot, then added some danglers with a couple of SU! tiny tags along with a mini punched heart. I attached them with a neutral piece of twine. The panels were all cut with Lil Inker Stitched rectangles. I decided to go with my 2-fer-1 cardmaking process, so I made a second card while I had the stamp set out of the cobwebs...
For this one I used a Tulisa corner collage die by Poppystamps, placing the image panel on a red card base. I used multi-colors of red Copics to color the giraffe's heart-shaped spots, and tied a balloon to his tail by hand-drawing the string. The ribbon is from my stash and I tied 3 little knots on the side.
It's fun to pull out older stamp sets you've long forgotten about and give them new life. I will continue digging a little deeper into my stash and I'm sure I'll find more goodies to play with soon!
Thanks for stopping by and make it a great weekend!
