Did you see the tin I bought and was looking for an idea? Here’s what I came up with. I used the new “Tin Games – Oops! Sorry” set from Whimsy Stamps and made a celebration and game all in one. Once the confetti is gone and the party blowers are past annoyance, the game will live on. LOL
Welcome back!! Or at lease welcome back to me. The school season will be starting so that means summer play is over and I’ll have more time at my crafting desk. Today I’m sharing a simple card I made using one of the elephants from the Tin Games – Ups & Downs from Whimsy Stamps. I also used the sentiment from that stamp so this would be a nice card to send to someone who is having a hard time – because life is full of ups and downs.
I know the 4th of July has passed but this is a card inspired from the 4th of July and so I’m finally able to share it during this release time. This is using one of the elephants from the Tin Games – Ups & Downs from Whimsy Stamps. I’m traveling at the moment so I was planning to skip any 4th of July celebrations this year. However, one of the roads we took just so happened to lead us right to the most spectacular fireworks show that I’ve seen in decades – and we were right under them! It was so amazing! So that evening inspired this card and to figure out how to color fireworks.
Here’s one of the card I made using the Tin Games – Ups & Downs from Whimsy Stamps. I love these little elephants and these two can be used for so many different themes. Here I was using them as a friendly hello card. I’ve been wanting to color some Baobab trees for a while so this was my chance. I mixed up happy and fun (with polka dot purple elephants and blue plaid ones too) with the realism of life in the background. It was a fun card to color.
Life is full of ups and downs but this little tin game adds some a bit of fun to it. Introducing the Tin Games – Ups & Downs from Whimsy Stamps. This little game is based off the classic children’s game of Chutes and Ladders – land on a ladder and you can climb forward or land on a slide and you’ll fall backwards. All you need is a small tin (you know, like the Altoids mints), a small die and two playing pieces. But the game is not all this set is fun for! You’ll see other projects this week with this same set – they’re adorable!
