A classic moment from our Safari adventure this past week. My husband was driving and I had my daughter on my lap (don't worry I am not Brittany---it is a drive through where you literally go 8 miles an hour on a closed course and feed the animals that roam free! My other two monkeys were dangling out the back windows!)
Two fearless Zebras decided to poke their head INSIDE our car....needless to say Lauren was not pleased.
The rest of the day she kept repeating "It's ok.....Zebras are nice!" --That is what I kept telling her to calm her down.
Here are two projects I did last night---nice to get back to my stamping stuff!
The first card features an image and sentiment from Penny Black. The flowers are called Tigress. I colored them with Prismacolor pencils and then clear embossed them. They have a nice shine in real life.
I used my Nestability rectangle dies to mat and frame the image (I used gold cardstock for behind the flowers.)
The designer paper is from Memory Box Sugar Collection. I love the patterns in this pack.
The stamps and designer paper can be found at Stamper's Dream.
Materials used: Stamps-Penny Black (available at Stamper's Dream); cardstock-white, black, gold (Stampin' Up!); brilliance black ink; designer paper by Memory Box-Sugar Collection; slit punch (SU!); horizontal slot punch (SU!); black brads; Cuttlebug and Nestability dies; clear embossing powder, versamark pen and heat tool (SU!); dimensionals (SU!); ribbon (May Arts); Prismacolor pencils; odorless mineral spirits.
The next project is one I created with stamps and little clipboard set from Stampendous. The stamps are called "Clipboard Decor" and are made specifically to work with these mini clipboards (that Stampendous sells three different sizes in a pack--picture here!)
I used the largest clipboard and altered it to make a memo pad holder. I covered the clipboard with yellow cardstock. I flipped the base over and traced it on yellow cardstock and cut it out. Then, I covered the board with Modge Podge and adhered the measured cardstock on top and then sanded the edges.
I stamped the inside detail on white cardstock and cut it out and adhered it to the clipboard as well.
I used the stamps in the Stampendous set to create the border and the accent along the clip. The sentiment is stamped underneath the pad and I stamped it on the top of the pad to make it pretty for a gift presentation.
I attached a flower on the top of the clip to finish off the design. What an easy project. This would be adorable to leave by the phone or computer for messages or you could attach magnetic tape on the back and use it as a grocery list on your refrigerator.
Here is the view of the clipboard without the post it notes. The sentiment is also stamped on the base.
The clipboards and Stampendous Clipboard Decor stamps can be found at Stamper's Dream.
Materials used: Stamps- Clipboard decor by Stampendous; clipboard (Stampendous); bananna and white cardstock (Stampin' Up!); ribbon (SU!); large pop dot (SU!); button; flower (Paper Studio); Modge Podge; red classic ink (SU!); sanding block (SU!).
