When I saw this cue card I knew I had at least three stamp sets I wanted to use soooo…here they are. There are 4 in total I’ve entered into the Casology Challenge #261 so I’ll try to keep the words to a minimum.
Card No 1
Spritzed cardstock with Heidi Swapp Color Shine ‘Citron’, diecut with leaves from Kaisercraft ‘Poinsettia’ and adhered the negative pieces of the diecut. Monkey and sentiment from My Favorite Things ‘Sweet Safari’.
Card No 2
Cardstock spritzed with Heidi Swapp Color Shine ‘Citron’. Background diecut (brand unknown) and used all of the pieces. Cut the die cut down with the My Favorite Things ‘Stitched Dome Stax’. The leaves were die cut from Kaisercraft ‘Poinsettia’ but this time used the positive cuts in white card. Giraffe and sentiment are from WPlus9 ‘Party Animal’ and coloured using Derwent Inktense Pencils.
Card No 3
I’ve been wanting to use this elephant from Katzelkraft ‘Les Jungles’ and wanted to keep it simple. Coloured with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Sentiment is from Gerda Steiner ‘Monster Fun’.
And finally Card No 4
Die cut Craft Wise ‘Scalloped circle’ out of American Craft cardstock. Placed some DCWV zebra patterned paper behind and once again used the Kaisercraft ‘Poinsettia’ leaves. Zebra and sentiment is My Favorite Things ‘Sweet Safari’ coloured with Copics. The sentiment is heat embossed in Hero Arts White as it needs a bit of dimension when stamped on textured card.
So that’s it…hope you liked them.

I’m loving my Katzelkraft stamps at the moment and wanted to use the giraffe from the ‘Les Jungles’ set in a safari scene. I had recently made a card with the Altenew ‘Lotus’ layering stamps and dies and realised that one of the lotus solid stamps turned upside down looks like a tree…perfect for what I wanted to achieve with the look of this card.
I first stamped the giraffe then cut a mask to cover it so I could stamp the background images. I used a couple of Altenew stamp sets – the ‘Lotus’ Stamp and ‘Birch Land’. I used ‘Birch Land’ for the branches and the leaves using second generation stamping and different shades of green ink. While I still had the mask on I used the My Favorite Things ‘Cloud’ stencil for the sky.
I then removed the mask from the giraffe and coloured it simply with Inktense pencils. The sentiment was from the WPlus9 ‘Party Animal’ stamp set. The card front was popped up with craft foam and I added a green strip of washi tape. Once I finished these steps I felt like there was something missing and decided to add three hand drawn birds to the sky with the Zig Cartoonist Mangaka 05 pen (The water-based pigment ink in this pen is also smudge-proof with watercolours and alcohol-based markers once dry).
I hope you enjoyed this card and thanks for stopping by.
