Baby Giraffe

I've got another super quick card today. This is yet another pattern in the Sweet Pea DSP collection. I seriously love every one of the patterns in this stack.
The little giraffe is from Fox and Friends. He is inked up with So Saffron and I used a sponge dauber to ink a little bit of Chocolate Chip onto his mane and tail before I stamped him onto Whisper White. Yet again I have used the Tiny Tags set and the Medium Jewelry punch for the "baby" tag. This set and punch are going to get some serious use from me. I may have to beg Stampin' Up! to make more little sentiments and words to fit it. I bet I can find some more in my big ol' stash somewhere that will fit. A good mission.... and maybe I can get some stamp organizing done at the same time? yea right!
The little scalloped oval was done using the Movers and Shapers. The giraffe is actually stamped on the Whisper White base that shows through the oval window. I just sponged a little Chocolate Chip around the window and it makes it look almost like a shadow. That is a great way to get the look of layers without actually layering.
