Zoofari Baby


I'm still using the Darling Doodles Designer Paper pack..... amazes me how far a package of paper goes. My friend had a sweet baby boy a couple weeks ago. I'm SO late with a card. I had a bit of time this weekend to try and catch up a bit.

The Zebra is stamped on Shimmery White card stock and colored in with my aquapainter with Wild Wasabi and Blue Bayou ink ink. I added some black with my Sakura Glaze pen to his hoofs and some glitter with the Sakura Glitter pen to his tail and mane. I masked him and stippled around him with Soft Sky and around the edges with a tad of Blue Bayou. He is then stitched on to a piece of DS paper (opposite side of the paper on the bottom), then adhered to a piece of Blue Bayou.

The stars are punched out from the same double sided paper, then adhered to another punched out star of either Blue Bayou, or Soft Sky and popped up with Dimensionals. I didn't want the top of the card too busy with the designer paper, so I reached for some of the new textured paper.... oh man is that nice. The sentiment is from the set Small Sayings stamped on Soft Sky card stock then cut out with the large oval punch. I then punched out two more large ovals from Blue Bayou card stock and layered them behind it. One slightly above, one slightly below. I used my Crafter's Tool Kit to pierce some holes, then added the dots with my Sakura Black Glaze pen and some tiny little star jewels. The bottom scallop is made with my corner rounder punch (just remove the guide). Yes, that is stitching from my sewing machine. :)

Here's the recipe:

Stamps: Zoofari, Small Sayings
Ink: Basic Black, Blue Bayou, Wild Wasabi
Paper: Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, Shimmery White, Darling Doodles Double Sided DS Paper, Wild Wasabi Textured.
Other: Star punch, Large Oval Punch, Corner Rounder, Aquapainter, Stipple Brushes, Dimensionals, Sakura Black Glaze and Glitter pens, Crafter's Tool Kit, Star Jewels, Score-pal, Janome Sew Mini.

So, do you all sign up for the newsletter at eP? If you do, you know that this weekend you can get 15% off your total order by using the coupon code IDO at checkout through the weekend!! How awesome is that? I've gotten so many cool things from them. This weekend I used the
Basic Grey Precision File set on some chipboard that I covered with paper to get in all the grooves and oh man it's AWESBOMB. I have no craft stores in my small town, so every time I order from Joy and Daisy, it's like Christmas when the box arrives. If you don't have those Sakura Gel and Glitter pens yet, go and get em baby..... I love them and use them ALL THE TIME. Don't forget to use the coupon at checkout!! :) Happy Anniversary Kurt and Joy!!!

Okay, I'm really going to catch up on some things today and finish getting the kids ready to start school on Wednesday. My sweet son, Sheldon has been helping with laundry all weekend and now you can actually see the floor! I love that boy! Okay... so I made a deal to trade some Xbox time, but it's worth it.

Hope you are all enjoying the holiday weekend. Stay safe!

You can always make this set look good. I am not--did your read that-- not buying it. Sorry just have to say that to myself every time you use this set! Great card. I really don't even like the set that is why I don't want to buy it (unless you and a small handful of other use it)
