Like a pack of wild animal cards

At least I hope my Stamp-A-Stack attendees will! Let me rewind a little. I'm having a Stamp-A-Stack of children's cards at my friend's place very soon and she has invited a few friends who are new to stamping. So, I'm really hoping that they like the pack of cards since first impressions are so important...which, btw, is why I recommend a Stamp-A-Ma-Jig.

These are the first cards that I have designed for children using Stampin' Up! products. I tried tapping into my inner child for an opinion as to whether the cards are appealing to kiddies. Tapping into my inner child is usually not particularly difficult since it tends to sit pretty close to the surface. But this time, it was completely noncommittal and inattentive - probably because I ate some artificially coloured sweets just before asking. Next closest option is Hubby since his inner child also likes to come out to play. His opinion (with my thoughts in parentheses):
giraffe card is awesome (oooooh! very promising)
great colour scheme (hmmmmm...that was a little analytical)
love the layers (oh oh! definitely losing contact with Hubby's inner child)
flawless (Gah! Hubby's inner child has gone back into hiding for sure. So, what does Hubby want?).

I guess it is time for some hypnotic regression. OmmmmMMMMMM...

All of the cards feature the three stamp sets: Circle of Friendship, Sprinkles and Wild About You.

Thank you, Kari :) My inner child would like to ask your inner child if she wants to jump up and down on springy mattresses. Gee! I loved that as a kid...

My favourite is the crocodile, but they're all lovely :)

My inner child wants chocolate for breakfast. LOL.

These are so sweet. I am waiting on the Wild About You set to arrive any day now. I so can't wait to have a play now I have ideas to case off.

On the inner child thing. I don't have an inner child, I am one! I used to love swinging on the clothes line as a kid :)

Gorgeous cards, Lin Mei!
My fave is the giraffe, too. ;)

Thanks for checking in on me today, it meant a lot to me. :)

Lin Mei said...

Hey there Dani! Looking forward to your Wild creations.

I loved swinging off clothes lines - the good ol' Hills Hoist? Almost as fun as a Merry Go Round once you get it going!

Lin Mei said...

Hello Jane! Great to see you popping by and saying hi. Sorry that you've been having site problems but I'm glad to hear that I'll be able to visit again from Friday onwards. Have a good break before the blog flurry resumes!
