I adore all of the cute animal stamps that Stampin’ Up! continues to create.  I suppose I am a kid at heart, but I always pick those stamps.  Sadly, it is that time of year with the catalog retiring.  And we are losing one of the energetic ones.  It is the Zany Zebras.  I had to share one more card with you using these cute critters!


Stampin' Up!, Zany Zebras, Forever Greenery, Stitched So Sweetly, Jackie Beers

I made a Double Z Fold card to show off these sweeties.  Here is an open view.


I paired the Zany Zebras with the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper.  This wild pattern seemed to pair perfectly with the frolicking zebras.  My background is Garden Green, followed by Soft Sea Foam.  The Soft Sea Foam matches the light parts of the DSP perfectly.  I love one set cards, and this is definitely one of those.  I used all but two of the stamps in the set on this card!

I stamped the zebras with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then highlighted the darker areas with Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blend.  I decided the zebras would look best cut out, so I lightly fussy cut them with the wonderful Paper Snips.  I did not get into too much detail with my trimming.

The White panels are all cut using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I used the largest and the 3rd smallest ones.  The panels are not perfectly centered.  I tried to center them from the top and sides of each panel.  Since the Z strip is across the bottom I believe it was okay to move them up a bit.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you have a wonderful day!!
