Three Giraffes x 2

I am once again attempting to play along with Darnell's Twofer challenge - which this month is Zoo Animals!  These instructions always throw me for a loop!
I used a really funny giraffe stamp from Technique Tuesday called Attitude Giraffes on both cards.

I dropped Glossy Accents on the sunglasses (which you can't see too well here).  The sentiment is from What's Up by Avery Elle.
For my Twofer - I stamped the Attitude Giraffes on patterned paper and die cut it with a Circle Nestability and framed it in a Pinked Edge Nestability.  I added Eerie Eyes from Doodlebug and brushed over all the giraffes with Clear Glitter Wink of Stella (not showing in photo!). The birthday sentiment is from Party Animal by Avery Elle.

To be sure I made each card a different design, I enlisted the help of two sketch challenges!

For my It's Been Too Long card I'm linking to:
I tweaked the sketch a tad since my image was a long rectangle

For my You Party Animal card I'm linking to:
I used the sketch as well as the colors from the photo

Too Cool for School

I like to send my young grandnieces and nephews cards during the school year - and so I made these to be ready for when they go back in the fall!
I used this wonderful Swirly Waves Background stamp from Technique Junkies and the fun S'Whale stamps and die set from Ellen Hutson.  I used Ranger Distress Salty Ocean Ink for everything!

My theme was inspired by this card of Featured Stamper Beth over at Splitcoaststampers

Mid Month June CAS Mix Up Reminder!

I'm here today as a mid-month reminder of the June CAS Mix Up challenge!  
Loll is our hostess the month and this is her challenge.
Here's my card using Layered Embossing Powders, Die cuts, stamping and water coloring.
Here's how I used layered embossing on my die cut seahorse.
I die cut the seahorse out of mat board.  Then I rubbed Versamark ink over the seahorse and spooned Baked Texture Patina Oxide Embossing powder over it.  This EP has powder and bits of gold in it. 
 I held my heat tool about 10" above the piece going back and forth over it so it wouldn't all blow off as it heated up.  Then I could move the heat tool down closer to get it all melted.  Look how thick and gorgeous this looks already!
Then I inked around the nose and up around the outside edge down to the tail with Versamark and spooned on Baked Texture Deep Sea Embossing Powder to add another layer and color to my seahorse.
(I picked the piece up carefully and moved it to a clean sheet of paper before melting the powder)
I used the same melting technique - holding my heat tool high above the piece until the powder started getting hot and then lowering it to completely melt the powder.
While I was at it -  I die cut 4 seahorses so I could make more cards!  They all look a little bit different, depending on how much of the Deep Sea EP covered the area.
I added a blue enamel dot for the eye.
To create the watery background, I took a panel of watercolor paper and tapped it onto my craft mat where I had rubbed Ranger Distress Cracked Pistachio Ink spritzed with water.   I stamped this fun Beach Day sentiment from Technique Junkies and glued the seahorse over the background.
You'll find lots of inspiration from the Design Team as well as links to videos for various Layered Embossing Techniques over at CAS Mix Up!  You have until 6/24 to link up your CAS project!  Hope to see you there!!
