Zoo Review #4

I wish I had time to take a better photo of this card. It looks so much better in real life. The base card is Crumb Cake with a layer of Pear Pizzazz that was embossed with a floral EF. There's a small banner using some giraffe print paper that I've had forever, and it has a button that my friend wanted to use on one of the cards I was to make for a sample. I stamped with Versa Mark and then with Crumb Cake and embossed with Clear EP again. This time, I colored the image as well using color pencils. I framed the image with Soft Suede and popped it up with Dimensionals. I will try to get everything cut in the morning, and I only made 4 of the 5 samples due to lack of time. Thanks for stopping by!!!

Zoo Review #3

Well, I finally got around to doing card #3 of 5 using Zoo Review. I just can't seem to work in my card making these days! Of course, suddenly having 3 little ones around slows some things down a bit. For this one, I embossed the zebra with Black EP. I framed it with red and used red ribbon with a soda pop tab for a buckle (by request). The zebra striped paper has been around here for many years. Everything else is from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!!

Zoo Review #2

I've got to get busy. This is only #2 of 5 cards I'm supposed to make as samples for my friend. She needs them before the end of the week! YIKES! This is another simple one. The base card is Pool Party with a white layer that was embossed with Northern Flurry(SU!). I inked the polar bear with Versa Mark and then with Pool Party, stamped and embossed with Clear EP. I punched him out with the 2-1/2" Circle Punch and used a Nestie for the scallop circle. I popped up those circles with Dimensionals. VERY simple! Thanks for stopping by!!

Zoo Review #1

A friend of mine is visiting an out-of-state friend soon and wants to do some card making while there. She bought the "Zoo Review" set and asked me to make some sample cards for them to work from. She also let me know what supplies they will have to work with. They will be using color pencils, so I colored the lion with color pencils and then used a wet paint brush for blending. The card stocks used here are Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede and white. I used a strip of retired SU! DSP for the horizontal panel. I'll send some pieces with the samples for them to use. This is the first of five cards I'll make for them. Thanks for stopping by!!!

Balloons in Blue (TSC0222)

The Twisted Sistahs Challenge for this week is to make a "Kid card". We could either make one appropriate for a child or just make a card with a child image on it. The card stocks used here are Island Indigo, Pool Party and white. The white panel was embossed with SU!'s Cloud folder. I used an SU! Circle Punch and large Scallop Circle Punch. The little girl is from "Greeting Card Kids" and was colored with SU! Markers and cut out eliminating the little heart she usually holds. The balloons were punched with a non-SU! punch. I used Dimensionals to pop up the girl, the circles and the balloons. Thanks for stopping by! '

Dreams (TSC0208)

The Twisted Sistahs Challenge for today is to use a stamp that we haven't used in a long time or use one that has never seen ink. Also, we were to do embossing and include a butterfly somewhere on the card. I used "Dreams Du Jour" which I haven't used in such a long time. I embossed the image with Black EP and colored with Color Pencils. I also used the new "Vine Street" Impressions Folder which is an SAB item. The butterfly was punched with the new butterfly punch (Spring Catalog) as well. The layers are White, Lucky Limeade, Pretty in Pink, Black and White again. The ribbon is Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon. Everything is from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!
