Giraffe Growing Family

Hello - stopping by with another card that I made just for fun recently using some new Altenew stamps I had been dying to get inky!

I made this primarily to play along with the Altenew August Challenge: From Places Abroad - United Kingdom with this inspiration photo:

There were so many things to pull as inspiration from this photo! I loved the woodgrain with the pops of yellow - and the lacy white edges. I used Altenew's newly released Baby Zoo stamp set- saw it and fell instantly in love! I stamped the giraffe 3 times in soft yellow MFT ink, then stamped the images over the top, stamping off each time for a softer effect. Added the sentiment and a couple of the little hearts from the same set, then rounded a couple corners. Layered under it some vellum, some Avery Elle pattern paper, a doily, and some MME woodgrain pattern paper - all machine stitched together, and the edges curled up a little for dimension. 

Thanks for dropping by again - have a great day!


  1. How very sweet, love that doily peeking out against the wood grain. :)

  2. Amazing! As always :) Thank you very much for joining us at the Altenew challenge!
