Wild About Animals

Hello Dreamers!
Happy Friday.  Hope you have a nice weekend planned.  Not sure what I will be doing.   Probably yard work and maybe a few walks.
Today, I have  a few cards that I made using a retired animal stamp set from Stampin' Up.  I made multiples and some of the cards went to Operation Write Home (the love cards) and Card Care Connection (birthday cards).   I kept one of the giraffes for my nephew's birthday.

Materials List:
Stamps: Animals - Stampin' Up; Various sentiments
Ink: Rust, gray, and black dye ink
CS:Patterned CS - A Muse Studios
Small Banner Punch- Stampin' Up
Letter Stickers


  • Make A2 cards from the patterned CS
  • Stamp the animals on white and kraft CS.
  • Layer the animals with two layers of CS and add to the card fronts
  • Punch out five of the flags for banner
  • Add letter stickers to the flags
  • Glue down a piece of twine
  • Add the flags over the twine with pop dots
  • Stamp other sentiments
  • For zebra card, wrap bakers twine around and knot

So, just some fun cards for a couple of great organizations.
