Zoo Babies

SUO145Well it’s time for another SUO challenge and this time our theme is ‘Cute Critters’.  This was another one of those where I wasn’t quite sure what to do with it.

I was looking for a ‘cute critter’ to use on my card and remembered I had those ‘cute’ zoo babies so that made the decision easy for me.  After playing around with a couple of them, I finally decided to go simple (I know..SHOCKER!!!) and this is what I ended up with.  I think it turned out so fun!

Here’s the details.

  • Mint Macaron – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • It’s My Party dsp (Melon Mambo diagonal stripe) – 3/4 x 5 1/2, add to card base
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 5 1/2, stamp splotch in Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, Mint Macaron, stamp greeting using Melon Mambo
  • Stamp elephant twice in Basic Grey Archival, cut ear out of second one and add to elephant.  Add elephant using dimensionals.  Add White Candy Dot for elephant eye.
  • Add panel to card front using dimensionals
  • Crushed Curry – 1/8 x 5 1/2, add to Whisper White panel
  • Add It’s My Party Enamel Dots to finish it off

Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team to see their wonderful creations!

Zoo Babies Favor

Wk2ZooBabiesFavorHappy Saturday everyone!  I can’t believe it…it’s been positively springlike around…especially that April Showers part!

It’s the end of Week 2 for Create with Connie and Mary Card “Create”tions 2014 and on Saturdays the design team makes a little favor/3D to go along with the card set they did for the subscribers.  This past week I used Zoo Babies….I set I’ve had for awhile but only PUT IT TOGETHER and USED IT for the FIRST TIME when I made my card set.  (And I got the set right after the new catalog came out last year!)  But it truly has been put to good use this week between my card set for Card “Create”tions, a couple other cards and now my little favor.  For my card set I paired the Zoo Babies set with the A Dozen Thoughts set then with the I Am Me dsp so I used all those things for my little favor too!

Here’s the details…

  • Basic Grey Chevron dsp (from I Am Me dsp) – 8 1/2 x 5 1/2.  Along the 8 1/2 side score at 3 5/8 and 4 7/8.  Along the 5 1/2 side score at 1 1/4 x 4 1/4.  (See picture for all scoring/folding)  Fold into treat holder.
  • Calypso Coral – 1/2 x 6 3/4, wrap around top overlapping in the front.
  • Add Calypso Coral Button to the belly band using White Baker’s twine then slip over top to hold favor together.
  • Cut out Whisper White tag from Chalk Talk Framelits.  Stamp hello in Calypso Coral (I did stamp off before stamping each of this color) and Smoky Slate.
  • Stamp Elephant two times in Calypso Coral and Rhino two times in Basic Grey.  Cut out full elephant of one and ear of other.  Add with dimensional.  Cut out full rhino of one and head of the other and add with dimensional.  Add both to tag using dimensionals.
  • Slip tag over button to add to favor and viola!!!  You are done!  Nice and easy!

Zoo Babies

TSSC309Oh it’s time again for another Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge and Mary Jo really out did herself on this one!  It’s a nice and easy sketch that, of course, I took a few ‘liberties’ with!  LOL!!!

This week for Create with Connie and Mary Card “Create”tions 2014 I am using Zoo Babies for my card set (you have to be a subscriber to see it though).  Since this set was sitting on top of my desk I thought I’d use it for Mary Jo’s sketch too!

Here’s the detail…

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Kaleidoscope dsp (diagonal stripe) – 3 3/8 x 4 5/8.  Layer on Basic Black 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 and add to card front.
  • Real Red – 1 1/2 x 4 1/4 and add to card front
  • Cut out Film Strip from On Film Framelit in Basic Black.  Layer onto Whisper White 2 1/4 x 2 1/2 using dimensionals and add to card front.
  • Stamp Zebra in StazOn Jet Black and Real Red, cut out and add inside filmstrip.
  • Cut out the one Bubble framelit (you will be using this backwards) and stamp just to the words from the matching Just Sayin’ set using Real Red.  I then took the Basic Black marker and underlined the words.  Add the bubble using dimensionals to finish it off.

TSSC309You can see I flipped mine around a bit and changed a couple things but the basic sketch is still there!  Don’t forget to check out the other members of the team and remember go to the Technostamper blog to play along!
