Stamp Review Crew: Zoo Babies Edition
Hello again, so glad you stopped to visit us on another round of the Stamp Review Crew! This time we are using this super cute set full of sweet little animals! I am sure that you have already seen a ton of ideas with this set, but I think we may have a few new ones for you here :)

As always, if you get lost along the way, or just want to check out some of our past hops, click on the banner at the top of this post and it will take you to the Stamp Review Crew blog with all of our past hops intact in the archives.

If you are following along in order, then you just arrived from Betty Traciak's blog. She also comes up with some great out-of-the-box ideas :)

I suppose you would like to see what I made for the hop, huh :) OK, so I thought I had this stamp set. I was SURE of it. And I am a procrastinator.... so when I was ready to start my projects on Thursday (before going to work, mind you) I realized that I do not, in fact, own this set. But, since I make all of the banners and buttons for Stamp Review Crew hops, I do have the digital version :) Check out my hybrid projects!

I printed a few fun animals on some Whisper White cardstock, then started playing around. With alligators mouth open and the little heart cutout on the image, I thought it would be fun to have him talking! I threw in some of the Core'dinations paper that I have been hoarding forever (it is still on the Clearance Rack, so go get yourself some!), embossed with the Happy Hearts embossing folder, sanded the paper to expose the slightly lighter core, and distressed the edges.I pulled out the Fringe scissors that I have not used nearly enough because I needed to ground that little fella with something, and grass sounded good :) The sentiment is from Just Sayin'.
I got some help with the layout from the Friday Mashup Challenge.

Fruit Loops or Juicy Fruit anyone?! That is what this toucan with his colorful beak reminds me of :) I kinda cheated and used the toucan image I colored on MDS for the banner and buttons, lol! More Core'dinations with the Pumpkin Pie panel, embossed and sanded. The striped paper is the Irresistibly Yours specialty paper that I colored with some markers. (Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Tempting Turquoise, and Blackberry Bliss).
I stamped the sentiment bubble in Blackberry Bliss on the vellum, then heat embossed with Clear embossing powder. SLICK, I tell you!
Add a rainbow of Candy Dots and voila!

Now it's time to head on over to the next stop, Rochelle Blok. She is sure to amaze you!

That toucan is "too-too" with the coordinating striped paper!

Love these hybrid projects, Tanya! What a fantastic job digitally coloring the toucan and he does remind me of Fruit Loops!

Great use of digital stamps and no fussy cutting!! Love your two card samples - simply cute.

Heidi Baks said...

This set is perfect to play with in MDS. I was tempted to grab it myself (rather than fussy cutting the stamped version... haha!). I really love the distressed heart background. The color is so lovely!

Carol Carriveau said...

BOTH are wonderful and sweet cards!

Betty said...

Wonderful texture and layers. LOVE the bright stripes of the resist paper!
