Z E B R A and new Poppy Stamps

Yes Zebra spells Zebra :). This zebra is a new stamp by Clarity Stamps and I LOVE it! Just love it's contempory look and that it's made of alphabets letters that spells it's name, so cool.

And it made me think how to use my Judikins zebra print texture cube stamp. I had a brainwave yesterday. I know, it doesn't happen a lot but when it does I have to act on it immediately. See, normally I would stamp it around the edge of the card and then get annoyed that it doesn't fit exactly. And I know I can mask it to make it fit but it wouldn't look right. So what I did was draw diagonal lines on the card with a pencil from corner to corner. Then mask across the corners with a post it note. I might not have explained that very well so next week I will make another version with a different animal and take photos as I go.

Yes I have a different animal by Clarity Stamps and it's a cheetah, my favourite animal in the whole world (besides Miaowski of course :)). Can't wait to try it out with this technique

Well Miaowski is not behaving well enough to be my favourite at the moment. Her favourite pasttime while I'm asleep is to stab me in the face with a sharp claw to wake me up. I keep telling her it's not funny and I'm not amused in the slightest.

Now I know I have a lot of stamps. And I have a lot of the same kind of stamps, for example I must have at least 10 different seahorse stamps (plus just got another one from Hero Arts). And I have loads of Asian ones. But I am so excited because Poppy Stamps is bringing out a new range of stamps and they are going to be Asian ones - yay! I love Poppy stamps, their images are so cute so I can't wait to see their new ones. Here is a sneak peak on their blog.

Well, I hope you all have a lovely weekend. See you Monday and thanks for visiting ...

This is so cool, Liz! So dramatic in black and white and I love the touch of red from the brads!
