Hi Stampers, I’m back today with another quarantine / social distancing card. Ten days ago I shared with you my little quarantined piggy who stayed home – see that post by clicking here. Today, I have two giraffes social distancing by staying six feet apart. I used the Back on Your Feet stamp set. This set only have one giraffe facing to the left. I used the stamparatus, to do the “mirror stamp technique” to make the second giraffe face the other direction.
The card base is Crushed Curry followed by a layer of Basic Black. I stamped onto Whisper White CS and colored the social distancing giraffes using the Stampin’ Blends.
Seaside Spray ink was sponged above them as a sky and Old Olive ink was sponged below them to be grass. I used a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to draw the arrows and the 6′ between the two giraffes.
This cute sentiment “This is knot good” came in the Back on Your Feet stamp set and coordinates with the giraffe (since it has a knot in it’s neck). The sentiment was stamped in Soft Suede ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS and punched out using a 1-3/8″ scallop circle punch and mounted on a piece of Soft Suede CS punched out using the 1-1/2″ circle punch. <—– I am so sad these punches (along with many others) are retiring!
Inside the card is a layer of Whisper White that has been sponged to match the front of the card.
The sentiment “Miss You Friend” is made using three stamps from the Well Said stamp set. In the video below you can see how I die cut the CS (using the Ornate Frames Dies) and used a negative template to hold the die cut and stamp the sentiment using the Stamparatus. Doing this allowed me to mount the stamps nice and straight, using the grid lines, ONCE and stamp many of these in succession to use on a bunch of cards I made.
Finally, I added that sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals, so that it could be used as the stopper for my easel card. You can find full direction and measurements for my social distancing giraffes by watching the video below and all supplies can be purchased from my online store.
