Giraffe & Flower

Hello there!  Feels like ages since I've shared a non-CASology card but I got a little time in the Craft Cave today so I played along with a few challenges.  This first card combines some NBUS Lil' Inker Designs stamps with the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches.  I love the punny sentiments in this set and the cutie pie animals.  The colour blocks are die cut from paint chips with MFT's wonky stitched rectangles.  I'm also going to join in with the Valentine challenge over at The Paper Players.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, Paint chips
Stamps:  (Giraffe & sentiment from Lovie Friend) Lil' Inker Designs
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black, Memento Tuxedo Black) Tsukineko
Die:  (Wonky Stitched Rectangles) My Favourite Things
Markers:  (RV000, RV10, RV34, C7) Copic
Glitter:  (Clear Wink of Stella) Zig
Gems:  Recollections

Next is an entry for the current Muse challenge where Valentyna gave us a gorgeous CAS creation.  This Concord & 9th set is also NBUS for me and I inked it up with some new (to me) Altenew inks.  I am really loving these little ink cubes!  I have a feeling that there may be more in my future...  The thanks die is from Mama Elephant and I used some Nuvo drops for a bit of decoration.  Those things are way too much fun.  I currently have them in black, white and grey but I'm guessing some other colours might follow some new Altenew inks into my shopping basket!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Flower & leaves from Flourish) Concord & 9th
Inks:  (Frosty Pink, Coral Berry, Ruby Red, Frayed Leaf) Altenew
Die:  (Thanks) Mama Elephant
Glitter:  (Clear Wink of Stella) Zig
Other:  (Oyster Grey Nuvo Crystal Drops) Tonic

The sentiment on the first one may be the best ever... I'm not sure I've heard a giraffe pun before! Cute! Your second card is so classy.

Both are so fab Jen! Love that amazing flower and if you like the inks you definitely 'need' the oranges and bright greens, they are awesome too... just sayin'.

Stop... stop, stop, stop!!! NO say it again... ROFLMAO!!! OH my friend, that is the best pun you've ever had - I've gotta get my pun-loving hands on that one!!!
