Join in the hop and see what wonderful inspiration our design team and guest designers have brought to you today. You will find this month’s selections on the subscription page. Lots of extra goodies as well too on the a la carte page. After hopping head on back to the Scrapping for Less blog to enter the Rafflecopter.

Hello Everyone! How interesting is this kit! Exotic Animals – and what cute animals they are. This kit is filled with interesting embellishments and I tried to use as many as I could one each card!

Card 1, Collection 1, Sketch 3

For card one, I made a shaker card – hiding a chameleon in the shaker window. I thought putting the sentiment on the flag was a great way to add some interest and more dimension. I also stamped another image of the chameleon on the flag to help fill in some of the white space. I wrapped the brown cord around the side of the front panel and tied a bow.

For the inside, I added a small strip of scrap paper from the front panel, then stamped the branch, leaves and chameleon in a light gray ink.

Card 2, Collection 2, Sketch 1

OMG!!! The paper in this collection is SUPER ADORABLE!! For this card I trimmed down pattern paper as shown on the sketch. I used the leaf die from the collection to cut a few leaves and used distress ink to darken the edges. I then stamped, colored and fussy cut the sloth image and added it to the card with foam adhesive. I finished the card with a green gem from the collection and a few sequins.

On the inside, I added 2 more leaves, stamped the sentiment with black ink and the other sloth image in a light gray ink.

Card 3, Collection 3, Sketch 4

I absolutely LOVE this card. I stamped the image on some white card stock and colored the it with Copic Markers. I simply added some green “dashes” to create grass and ran a light blue marker around the meerkat for the sky. I stamped the sentiment on a piece of white card stock I trimmed with a fishtail banner die. The paper doily was trimmed to fit under my sentiment. I used the flower on the twine for an added dimension and it filled the space next to the image perfectly!

On the inside of the card, I added a piece of scrap pattern paper and stamped the meerkat image in the light gray ink.

Card 4, Collection 4, Sketch 2

So Sparkly! These parrots deserve lots of sparkle. For this card I brought in some of the gold glitter paper found in the kit. I stamped, colored and fussy cut the parrot. I added it to one of the tags found in the collection. I grabbed some ribbon from my stash to add to the tag. I adhered it with some foam adhesive and finished with a few sequins. I wanted to fill in the space on the lower left so I added one of the paper flowers found in the collection.

The inside of this card was pretty simple, I added a piece of scrap paper on the right and stamped the sentiment and the other bird.

  1. Your cards are adorable! I especially appreciate your addition of layouts for the insides of cards since that’s just as important as the front! Thanks for sharing your creativity!
