Day 25 Challenge – Animals

Monday, May 25th, 2020

Hello and happy Monday, my friend! Deb here for the design team, sharing with you. Today the Scrap ‘N Stamp  day 25 challenge prompt is animals. I love animals, and you could easily tell if you ever looked through my stamp collection! The most difficult part was deciding which animals to include. If you’re not familiar with the Scrap ‘N Stamp challenge, it’s happening all month long, & everyone can participate. Each day there is a new prompt, or theme. Just create your project with the theme of the day, and share it on the challenge Facebook page HERE. Use the hashtag #SNSCHALLENGE. Everyone who shares a project is automatically entered to win a $50 Gift Certificate to Scrap ‘N Stamp!


I decided to use a set that hasn’t seen ink in a while. It’s called Beach Bunnies, by MFT. There’s also coordinating dies, to make life even easier.

Day 25 Challenge - Animals

Too cute, right?! And depending on where you live, you may have already ventured to a beach, just to feel the breeze.


On a piece of smooth white cardstock, stamp the bunnies and bird images from the MFT Beach Bunnies set in Tuxedo Black ink. I also used the MFT Sweet Somebunny set for the flowers & butterfly images. Next, choose your favourite alcohol markers to colour. I use a combination of Copic and Spectrum Noir markers, because that’s what I have! Now, use the coordinating dies of both sets to die cut the image.

Take a blue panel of cardstock and a small circle die. Die cut 3 circles, placed as shown above. Next, use the MFT Winter Stencil Strips – dots pattern – and blend on Broken China distress oxide ink.  Now, attach the blue panel to a bright yellow card base, with foam tape. Stamp the sentiment from the Beach Bunnies stamp set onto a strip of white cardstock, and then attach it and all of the images to the card front.

All that dimension adds so much fun! I think this card would cheer up anyone who has had to ‘self isolate’ lately, due to health issues.


I’m looking forward to see what you create for day 25 of the challenge! Which animals will you choose? Remember that you can still post from days already past, but please wait to post for future themes/prompts until that day arrives.

The Scrap ‘N Stamp store is still shipping regularly, so you can go ahead & order.

Happy Tuesday!

I challenged myself to make a quick card for today… and I pulled it off in ten minutes! I started with a challenge on Instagram (AAA Cards “one corner”) and decided to use only materials I could find leftover from other projects on my desk! Here’s what I came up with…

I used the die cut letters from the card I shared last Tuesday and a scrap of inky paper from the card I shared in our blog hop as my starting point. I found a leaf I’d die cut and never used and played around with the layout a bit. After selecting some wheat colored card stock, I stamped a couple leaves from Tim Holtz’s Nature’s Wonders stamp set. Of course, I used Distress Oxide- Crushed Olive and Walnut Stain. The Coffee Break stamp set by MFT has a great mix of sentiments, so I was happy to find one I could pair with the “thanks”!

It’s just a simple little collage in the corner… finished off with a few Nuvo Glitter Drops to highlight the blue tones in the inked scrap. I’m not sure if it’s still in the ‘clean and simple’ category, but it sure was quick to put together! Hope you like it- it was a fun challenge to use just supplies on my desk! I’ve got to get it tidied up so I can make the move to my larger space I just finished painting!

Inky hugs,
