Stampin' Addicts New Catalog Hop - Zoo Review

Welcome to Stampin' Addicts New Catalog Blog hop! Now that you have had a little bit of time to look at our new catty and pick all your favorites we thought it would be a good idea to share with you some of ours!!

If you are following the hop in order you just came from Tinkerin In Ink with Tanya! Didn't she make the cutest things with Dinoraor! But don't worry if you are starting here the links at the bottom will get you going!

One of the first sets I had to have from this catalog was Zoo Review ... love this set!! It'll be perfect for scrapping my zoo pics as they are a bit more realistic than I have seen lately. But today I won't be showing any scrapbook pages but instead a few cards and a cute little box. I found it kinda funny that a lot of people didn't really like this set so hopefully these will change their minds!

My first card is this masculine card ... that Lion is rather intimidating dontcha think? This card has a lot of textures to it which makes pretty cool!


This was actually the first card I put together. The lucky limeade sure adds a bit of pop to this card as well as the bit of fabric!

This one is my favorite and in person boy does this sparkle and the layers are just perfect!

Last but not least is this little box ... can you guess what die it's made out of? The milk carton! How cool it that!?! I made a box similar to this for a treat swap at convention and if you come back to my blog I put together s little tutorial on how to make it! Just sign up for email subscription and you'll know when it gets posted (it's on the right hand side or on my banner)! Don't forget to become a follower too!

Now that you've added this set to your must have lists are you ready to see what Kim made over at Stitchin in Stampin on Paper. She used the Raining Flowers Stamp set we got at convention and her projects are too cute! I have a bunch of samples to show that I made for the convention display boards using that set, as well as a few others, and I'll be sharing those later next month. I had a lot more fun with that set than I thought I would!! Happy Stamping!

Jaw dropping! I love all the little details--the frame, the circle of patterned paper, the pop of limeade, the glitter. Amazing work!

First of all I have to comment on your gorgeous header for the blog. I love the variety of embossed card images and the shadow cast by your title. Then I want to tell you I did subscribe to email notification for your entries and look forward to seeing much more of your work. BTW, your zoo animal cards are terrific, too.

Carmen.....love your cards!! And the cute little box. I really love the lion. All that texture, and I think this hop has talked me into the striped EF. Love how you put the lion in the frame. Love the colors on the zebra one, and how you used the black and white fabric and leaves to mimic the stamp colors. Great job!

Karen said...
