For our projects today, the design team is showcasing Zoo Party and Tropical Fringe stamp sets and they coordinate really well with the previously released Frames Squared die set.



To begin, I stamped my images using Spectrum Noir Finesse Alcohol Proof Dye Ink in Rustic Brown and colored my images in with Spectrum Noir TriBlend and Copic Markers.  I die cut the square using the Squared Fames die set. I also die-cut some patterned paper and black card stock to ground my image, and adhered them on a square card base.



I used my B000 Copic marker to add some shadows to the images to give them more dimension.  I finished my design by adding some white dot details for added texture to the birthday hat and the cheeks.  I also used my black Copic multi-liner to add some eyelashes to some of the animals.  Here’s a closer look:




I did the same steps on my next card but added an image from the Aloha Newton stamp set.  This time, I adhered the Frame onto an A2 size card base and used a stitching die to add more texture on the card.


I finished my design by stamping the sentiment and colored the letters with Copic markers.  I also used my white gel pen to add more details to the pineapple and hibiscus.  Here’s a closer look:

  1. The added hat to the hippo is so adorable and honestly, your card is the first time I realized that there is a toucan for the mix of animals! So cute!!! And I love the added Newton image to the other card!


  2. Great coloring. Love the layering.
    Having Newton playing the ukulele
    with the flowers was a fun idea.
    thanks for sharing
