This is a card I made for David’s little nephew’s birthday.
Yes I’m showing you some stamp sets no longer available but perhaps they may end up in the next new catalogue later in the year. I loved the little choo choo train, so couldn’t resist using it although its from the Spring Mini 2009.
I have used the In Colours card stock for this card – Pacific Point & Riding Hood Red, along with Whisper White.
The train track has been rolled on using Right On Track wheel* (from the Spring Mini 2009) & Basic Black ink. The train has been stamped using Choo Choo* stamp set (from the Spring Mini 2009) in Pacific Point, Baja Breeze, Pumpkin Pie, Riding Hood Red and the puffs of smoke used Basic Gray, then cut each has been cut out and placed on the track. The animals are using the stamp set Wild About You and have been stamped using Pumpkin Pie, Going Gray and Creamy Caramel ink, again all have then been cut out & place onboard the train. I have added some dimension to the animals by restamping the face of the lion & the ear of the elephant & mounting them with Dimensionals.
The greeting is from Its Your Birthday and stamped in Basic Black.
Inside the card I have attached an extra piece of Whisper White & stamped some more animals in Pumpkin Pie & Creamy Caramel from Wild About You & the greeting is Birthday Wish* (from the Spring Mini 2009).
Now I’m just hoping Choo Choo will perhaps have been popular in the Spring Mini to continue into the new catalogue as I think its such a cute stamp set….. (fingers crossed)
There was lots of cutting out on this card, but it was worth it for the end result.
Until later, happy stampin’
