Born Pretty Woodland Creature Stamping with Girly Bits

Press Sample

Good morning! Hope you had a lovely weekend! I'm back with a cute plate that I received from Born Pretty. When I saw the mix of whimsical animals with accessories and flowery wreathes, I was like NEED. This is soooo cute! I held off using it for a while just because I was so backlogged with swatches, but I'm so glad I waited for the Girly Bits cremes to use them!

Here is the plate in all its glory (click on it for more detail). There's a bunch of animals with the most random images next to it! I chose to focus on five, because I have five nails! I did the bear image, bunny, fox, cat, and pig (on my thumb). This woodland creature plate can be purchased HERE and retails for $2.99. Born Pretty has so many fun stamping plates, and the plates are always etched so well. Don't forget that you can use PDX31 for 10% off your Born Pretty purchases.

As I went to stamp, I saw my immediate issue. The stamping images are super wide, meaning they will never fit fully on my nail. The first attempt, the flowery images were entirely on my cuticle. So I went in a different direction!

I used basically all the Girly Bits Fall 2018 cremes, and went to work! Let me explain using one nail:

1. Stamp the entire fox image with Rust in the Wind. As you look at the stamp, grab a dotting tool and remove everything BUT the fox, then stamp it on your nail.

2. Then scrap Petal to the Metal over the heart image on the fox image. Again, use a dotting tool and remove everything but the heart (trust me, it comes off easily. You could also use tape but the dotting tool is easier!)

3. Scrap You Can't Handle the Spruce, repeat removing everything, and stamp.

So as you can see, I did this method and repeated on all the nails. It's not the full image from the plate because that simply won't work on regular nails.  But I think doing this the way I did still worked and conveyed such a cute image!
