We're going to the Zoo!

Hi Everyone!

At today's Coffee and Card, we took a trip to the Zoo! Unfortunately this was just in the crafting sessions rather than physically going, but never mind, we still had a great time!

Back at the Stampin' Up convention event for demonstrators in April, we were all given a stamp set called 'Animal Outing'. Now, I will be honest and admit that this stamp set is probably not one that I would normally buy - more because I don't have many occasions where I would need a card with this sort of theme rather than disliking the images, but as I won it, I decided to bring it out and use it at Coffee and Card - and it went down rather well!

I decided to be a bit playful with these cards and do one with an image of the giraffe stamped twice through a peephole with the sentiment 'We make a great pair' - I now love this stamp! These stamps are perfect to colour in - I decided to use our alcohol Blend pens so that I could get some shading in (I must admit, colouring is definitely not my forte but it is so easy with these pens to at least get some shading). For the second card, I stamped the image on scrap card and fussy cut out. There are matching dies to this stamp, however for Coffee and Card I avoid using dies so fussy cutting it is.

These are the finished cards - and I now admit I do like this set quite a lot!

Hope you like them too. All products used can be bought in my online shop so you can recreate yourself.
