There She Goes Previews: Zoo-pendous!


Hi everyone!  Happy Thursday!

Did you make your way here by way of my dear friend Jessie's Blog (love her!)?  If so, perfect!  If not, please head on over to the There She Goes Blog to start this hop at the beginning!
Peacocks, and hippos and snakes, oh my! Judy Rozema was our lucky winner from this year’s Mother Of All Blog Hops and one of her prizes was the chance to work with TSG to design a stamp set in a theme of her choice. She said that she would like a fun zoo stamp set that incorporated some animals that are different than you might find in other stamp sets and we knew just who the perfect illustrator would be for this! Melyssa’s adorably whimsical zoo animals will have you going wild!


OK...seriously, this card was SO much fun to create!  I started by stamping this ADORABLE giraffe (omg...isn't he SO cute?), colored him with Copic Markers and then cut him out.  I created the cloud background and then die cut the tree with the Teardrop Tree Die-Namics.  I LOVE how perfectly sized this is and how it works with my sweet little giraffe.  I also die cut some grass with the Fresh Cut Grass Die-Namics and then built up my scene.

The sentiment, "Wild About You" was cut with the File Tab Die-Namics and then attached to the side of my focal panel.  The panel on which I built my scene is the only layer...I simply attached it to a card base of Kraft cardstock.  A simple bit of Cappuccino Baker's Twine finishes this off.  This is one of those cards I am not sure I could part with!


Zoo-pendous is a 6x8 set that will sell for $24.  Would you like a chance to win the Zoo-pendous stamp set? Here’s what you need to do- go to each of the Trendsetter’s Blogs and leave a comment on their Zoo-pendous Blog Hop Challenge post. After you have finished checking out the eye candy and have left some love, return to the TSG Blog and add your name to the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this Blog Hop Challenge post. A winner will be chosen randomly using a random number generator to receive their very own Zoo-pendous stamp set. The winner will be announced Saturday July 30th during the Release Party Chat!

Thanks SO much for stopping by!  The next stop on this wild hop is at the fabulous Karen Giron's Blog (love her too!).
