Stacked Animals Congrats!

Hey everyone!!  We're getting into the swing of school now and working on our "new" school routines! I'm back to my part time hours in the office and looking forward to a break from the full time hours the last weeks.  I am very thankful for my job and am so happy to be a part of our school district!

Today, I have a card to share with you that I made using more dies from Frantic Stamper.

Baby Animals Congrats 1.1

I adore (ADORE) these baby animal dies!  This is the first of several cards that I'll be sharing with you using these dies.  The first thing I thought of when I started playing with these were that they would be so cute stacked, which of course required a tall card.  This card measures 8 x 4. I chose some patterned paper for my animals and went to stacking!

Do you see the base that the elephant is balancing precariously on?  That is a die that is for the lion but it worked perfectly to ground these animals.  I thought it would be cute to add a little butterfly from the Petite Butterflies die set on the lion's tail!  For the ear of the elephant and the face of the lion I used dimensionals to pop them up a little.  There are eyes for the lion that can be die cut too but this time I used a little black pen to add eyes.

The monkey seemed like he needed to be clowning around so I put him upside down as if he were swinging around.  I think he is so adorable! To make him seem more 3D I adhered the top portion of him (head) directly to the card front and then I used dimensionals to pop up his bottom stomach and legs.  I love the dimension it created!

This die set is so fun!! There are so many possibilities, so many themes that they can be used with!
