SAB brochure yet? If so, which items do you just "need" to get?
As you know, my first "must have" was the stamp set: Banner Blast and coordinating Banner Punch. My second or I guess, my third "must have" was the stamp set: See Ya Later. I just love the little sayings.
Pinterest by Magumi Holland. I absolutely loved her alligator, so I just had to case him and add him to a card of my own. I had to change my alligator a bit from Magumi's as I don't have the SAB, Decorative Dots Embossing folder. Also the google eyes are no longer current (aha! I caught that one ;) ), so I created them with card stock and candy dots.
To create Mr Alligator's head, I use the Petite Pennants Builder Punch, Chevron Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Owl Punch and the circle punch that comes in the Punch Pack. I used Gumball Green card stock and ink, Whisper White card stock and So Saffron ink.
Originally I had created some Paws(?) Feet(?) for my alligator using the Banner punch. I played around with them for a bit, and the more I did, the more I wanted to created a body, so I did. His body was created using a framelit from the Chalk Talk Framelits. I really wanted to use the feet, but the more I played with them, the more they just didn't work. Without the feet, Mr Alligator looked like he was floating in the water, so that's where I went with it. I mounted him on Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay card stock and added some "water" details with the fabulous stamp set: Gorgeous Grunge!
So, what do you think...? Are you thinking that he doesn't quite look like a floating alligator because he's missing his tail? Well... I would agree and that is why this card continues onto the back! I just couldn't resist adding a tail. See ya later alligator!
