Zany Zebras Stamp Set for the cutest Birthday Cards

  • Zany Zebras Stamp Set
  • Playful Pets Suite
  • Final Week to Earn Bonus Days Coupons: Redeem in August

Stampin' Up! Zany Zebras Stamp Set 

Here's a cute card I received from a recent Demonstrator card swap.  I just love the Zany Zebras Stamp Set, and this card is just one darling example of the fun cards you can create with this stamp set.  I love doing card swaps with other Stampin' Up! Demonstrators.  This card was created by the very talented Becky O'Donnell.  I think you'll agree that this card would be so much fun to send...or receive!!  You'll find the Zany Zebras Stamp Set in the Stampin' Up! 2020-2021 annual catalog, along with the Balloon Bouquet Punch.     

The basecard for this card is Coastal Cabana.  Then a layer  of Whisper White panels on the front of the card and inside.  The Zany Zebras images are stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink with Flirty Flamingo accents on the ears and nose.  They are fussy cut and mounted on Dimensionals. The zebra images are "grounded" using a stamp from the set and stamped in Granny Apple Green ink.      

The Zany Zebras Stamp Set includes the stars stamp, the party hat stamp and several sentiments.  You'll find a perfect sentiment for your celebration among them.  The two balloons are punched using the Balloon Bouquet Punch.  One is punched out of Coastal Cabana Cardstock and the other is punched out of Bermuda Bay Cardstock. 

The sentiments are stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and in Bermuda Bay Ink.  To add a little bling, three Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels adorn the card.  This card is so cute, you just want to sequel when you open it.  


You'll want to see more samples on page 104 of the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.   You'll make someone feel special by personalizing a card with these cute zebras images. Add this suite to your Shopping List today.

Occasions sneak peek at OnStage

So much has happened over the past few weeks!  Over November 5 weekend, I drove from Houston to Kansas City for Stampin' Up! Nov 2016 OnStage.  We saw the new Occasions catalog coming out to customer Jan 4 along with the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  We made samples using new stamp sets and dies, swapped cards, and saw demos and more samples of the new sets from the Stampin; Up! Occasions catalog for 2017!

We made these cute Valentine samples.

Then we made these awesome birthday cards with a new die set and stamp set that I've fallen in love with:  The Balloon Adventures set and the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlit Dies.  

This is the front using new Party Animal Designer Series Paper

The display boards at the Stampin' Up!

OnStage was a great time to see past friends and meet new friends! Occassion catalogs, previewed by demos at OnStage, will be mailed to cutomers who have placed orders with me in the past 6 months in mid to late December.  

To see swaps from the Kansas City OnStage event, check out the photo section of my Meetup Site.  If you're looking for Thanksgiving and Christmas ideas,  I received some great swaps using items from the current Holiday Catalog and the main catalog that will inspire you to get creative. Handmade holiday cards are one of the most meaningful treats you can send your friends and family during the holidays.
