Little Monkey & More BackStage Swaps

As promised yesterday today’s cards have fun little animals on them and I’m going to start with the Little Monkey Bundle (161379) that has been so popular.

This bundle not only has cute little images it also has a fun little punch that goes with it making it very popular. This card uses the punch to build interest for your projects.

Done in shades of Crushed Curry, Daffodil Delight and Lemon Lolly how can this bright cheerful card not make you smile. Texture has been added with the Tropical Leaf Punch (Online Exclusive 161248) and Cheery Patterns Embossing Folder (162287).

The Zany Zoo Bundle (161315) was used to create this fun birthday card. And how about a punch card using a fun shutter technique for my last card today? The finally the Hello Ladybug stamp set (157693) and Ladybug Builder Punch (157698) is too much fun!

Done in Real Red and Basic Black that is a classic combo and a natural for this card. The dots in the background were created with the Dots & Spots Dies (159164). Did you know this type of card is built by starting with a square in the center and simply adding strips of card stock to create the shutter look? Yep, it’s that simple!

So what do you think? Great swaps? I love to be inspired and share with everyone at Stampin’ Up! events. Sharing cards with each other also allows me to make new friends and meet folks from all over the world and who would love that?

Team Time Fun

Each month I gather with my Team, the Blue Mountain Stampers and we share what we have been doing over the past weeks. Among other things we also swap cards and stamp together. It’s a lot of fun having a community of crafters that gather like this. Today’s cards are part of the swaps that were shared.

This first card uses the Marvelous Nature stamp set (161252) and our Hello Irresistible Designer Series Paper (Online Exclusive 161139). The monochromatic card has been stamped using our

returning color Pretty Peacock and the wings have been partially cut so they have a bit of lift to them. The background has a bit of texture added to it by dry embossing with the Timeworn 3D Embossing Folder. A bit of shimmer was added with the Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels (158130). I love the way that these gems pick up the color your using them with.

This next is a book fold that has been created with the Zoo Crew Suite Collection (161319 )

The fun fold and little images have been cut from the Zoo Crew Designer Series Paper (161304). And the sentiments have been stamped using the Zany Zoo stamp set (161305) using Memento Tuxedo Black and a little pop of color has been added with our Classic Matte Dots (158146).

More Zany Zoo

My daughter just sent me a photo of her at the zoo, in front of a favorite spot in any zoo or wildlife area – the alligators of course. She grew up with the crockodile hunter, Steve Irwin and has always been fascinated with these reptiles. So today I share with you projects made with the cute little stamp set, Zany Zoo (161305). This stamp set is part of a Suite of Products that allows you easy coordination when making your projects.

This first card uses the little crock to create a fun cheerful card.

The block of Designer Series Paper is from the Zoo Crew Designer Series Paper (161304) which has these great black & white patterns on one side. The bold Black & White Gingham Ribbon (156485) creates a fun border for this whimsical guy.

And this next card uses another of the black & white patterns – however this time it has been modified a bit with our Blending Brushes (153611) and a bit of Bubble Bath Classic Ink (161664/161670).

This card was inspired by the card you’ll see on page 46 of the Annual Catalog. The color pallet has been changed to a fun bold one and uses our Stampin’ Blends to color the little ballerina.

I think these whimsical little images are so much fun and I love the way the Designer Series Paper makes a great addition with all of the different things we love.

Not only is this set filled with sweet little images the Zoo Crew Designer Series Paper (161304) is filled with wonderful images coving all kinds of things like music, dance, camping and more! That makes it great for all kinds of folks that we need to make cards for. And the back side is done in Black & White making it perfect for all kinds of projects.

Check out this little turtle that is the focal point of this card that was created using the Something Fancy Dies (160424).

First, I love turtles so this little guy drew my attention and isn’t it cute teamed up with the pattern of different musical animals? The Tinsel Gems Four Pack (161623) were added for a little bit of shimmer. This package is a great option for embellishing your cards as it has 4 colors to choose from.
