Hello friends!! Today I’m so excited to be joining Pretty Pink Posh’s June Release and blog hop!! This release is so incredibly adorable and sweet!!
You may or may not know that Paulina recently gave birth to the cutest little boy and many of the designs in this release were inspired by some of his outfits. So you know that this release is going to be cuteness overload!!
I created a couple of cards using the adorable new Jungle Friends and Jungle Additions Stamp sets as well as the new Simple Stripes Die set.
To create these cards, I first stamped all the animals (some animals more than once) from the Jungle Friends and Jungle Additions Stamp Set in Versafine Onyx Black Ink onto Bristol paper. Once I had finished stamping my images, I then watercolored them with Tombow Dual Brush Pens.
- Hippo: 553, 451, 723
- Zebra: 723, 761
- Tiger: 885 + 933, 451
- Giraffe: 933, 925, 723
- Lion: 946, 025, N15
- Snake: 126
- Elephant: 451, 452
- Turtle (A2): 243, 277, 025
- Turtle (slimline): 126, 243, 277, 025
When I had finished coloring all my images, I then die cut them out with the matching dies. Next, I die cut eight sheets of different colored cardstock with all the dies from the Simple Stripes Die set.
I then adhered the largest stripes onto the front of an A2 top-folding card base made from white cardstock. Next, I stamped a sentiment onto an A2 panel of vellum in Versafine Onyx Black Ink and then heat embossed it in clear.
I then adhered several animals onto the vellum panel and then trimmed off the over hang. Next, I added glue to the backside of the vellum panel, where the animal were adhered to hide the glue and then adhered the panel onto the card base.
For my slimline card, I adhered all the remaining stripes, except for the thinest ones, onto a 8 1/4″ 3 5/8″ panel of white cardstock and then trimmed off the over hang. I then adhered the panel onto an slimline card base (7 1/4″ x 8 5/8″; scored at 3 5/8″).
Next, I stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment onto gray cardstock and then trimmed the sentiment down to create a banner. I then finished the card by adhering the sentiment and the remaining animals onto the card front with foam dots.
