Animal Print!

Simon Says Stamp | Kisses Release

AD:  DT Post

Hi there!

Today I’m sharing this fun animal print card I made using a new animal print stencil from today’s Simon Says Stamp’s “Kisses” release.  I have to tell you:  I realized while I was making this card that I don’t own a single thing with an animal print on it and I don’t recall ever owning anything with an animal print.  I honestly have no idea why because  I love it! It’s so fun!  How about you?  Do you own anything with animal print?  If so, tell me what you have in the comments –  this card made me realize that my style could use a little refreshing and now I need some ideas! 🙂

To make this card:

1.	Ink-blend a card stock panel using Simon Says Stamp Pawsitively Saturated ink in 
        Cherry and Taffy.  
2.	Use one of the Animal Print stencils in the set (I used a leopard-like print, but there 
        are two other prints in the set for you to choose from) and ink blend Black Soot Oxide 
        ink over the pink/red panel.
3.	Die cut the panel using a stitched die.
4.	Die cut another stitched white panel for framing.
5.	Die cut the “Love Ya” die from glossy black and white cardstock.
6.	Use foam adhesive to pop your animal print panel on top of you white stitched frame 
7.	Wrap both panels with a piece of black cord/twinand tie a bow.
8.	Mount your panel onto your card front using more foam adhesive.
9.	Use liquid glue to add your sentiment.
10.	Adorn the card with a few glossy black gems!

I love how my card-making can take me outside of my norm and push me a bit to try new things!  Like Animal Print!  

I hope you like this card and that you’ll check out the new Simon Says Stamp release!  It has a lot more fun products that are perfect for Valentine’s Day and, really, anytime you just want to say “Love ya”!

Have a wonderfully creative day, everyone!

I love to make cards and enjoy trying out new techniques and products. My artistic “style” differs almost daily – it just depends on what I’m making, the look I’m going for, who the intended recipient is, and, well, sometimes just the mood I’m in.
