I Look Up To You

Hi there! I hope you guys are having a great April so far! It has been a very cloudy and rainy week here in west Texas. But, while I wait for warmer and drier weather, I’m crafting it up in my craft room!

I just recently bought the Zoo Crew stamp set from Paper Smooches and I couldn’t wait to use it because I love how PS designs their critters. I knew I wanted to make a partial die cut with this set once I got it, so of course I needed to get the matching die set. I did the partial die cutting with one of circles from Lawn Fawn’s Circle Stackables die set and the giraffe die.

For the background, I heat embossed Simon Says Stamp clear embossing powder on white paper. You can see on the picture below how well the embossing powder melts. I really like this embossing powder, it melts so fast, and I never have a problem with my paper warping.I Look Up To You 1

I used Simply Chartreuse, Ripe Avocado, and Limeade Ice from Papertrey Ink with my Ranger blending tool to finish off the background.

I hope to make more cards soon with the rest of the Zoo Crew critters. I can’t seem to get away from the Paper Smooches website, I’m obsessed and I just want MORE!!!

Anyway, I hope you guys like my card, and please bare with me as I explore all the infinite options of photographing my cards! I’m just having a lot of fun with my camera… and random objects and backgrounds, you get the idea.
