Zany zoo llama - snyder 1

Zany Zoo Knitting Llama Celebrate Card

Deb Snyder is one of my favorite card swappers because she always has a cute or clever twist! I love this Zany Zoo card that she created with the knitting llama. Little touches like the oval "rug," the pink double-layer chair and the squares "artwork" on the wall behind her really give this card an extra Too Cool factor!

Background Basics—Deb started by die-cutting four Stylish Shapes mini-squares from one of the Zoo Crew Designer Series Paper patterns. She said that her intention in adhering them to the Basic White Thick card base in a square shape was to mimic artwork hanging on the wall. I can see that! When I first looked at it, I saw a window looking out to the night sky. Either way, super cute!

Next, she stamped a Zany Zoo sentiment in Smoky Slate ink under the squares. She finished the background by punching out a large Basic Black oval with the Double Oval Punch and adhering it to the lower right.

Lovely Llama—Deb stamped the Zany Zoo llama image in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Basic White cardstock and colored it in with Stampn' Blends Markers. She used Smoky Slate on the arms, legs and face; Basic Black on the hooves; and Bubble Bath for the eyelids, knitting and yarn ball. She die-cut the shape with the Zany Zoo Dies and also die-cut a Bubble Bath shape to layer behind it. That double-layer in Bubble Bath really gives a better illusion that the chair is in a color. The whole llama and chair is popped up with Dimensionals. Simple and SO, so cute!

Zoo Crew Ballerina Celebrate Card

Here's a second swap card created by Deb Snyder, this time with a cool, unexpected, overlapping element on the card front. Too Cool!

Background Basics—Deb's card begins with a 7-1/2" x 5-1/2" piece of Lemon Lime Twist, scored at the 4-1/4" mark. She adhered a 4" x 1-3/4" piece of Zoo Crew DSP onto a 4-1/4" x 2" piece of Basic Black, then mounted it onto the shortened card front.

Inside The Card—Next, Deb stamped the Zany Zoo sentiment in Memento Black ink onto a 5-1/4" x 4" piece of Basic White for the inside of the card. She positioned it so that there would be plenty of room for the overlapping element. She added some confetti images in Lemon Lime Twist on both ends of the inside layer, too.

Focal Point—Next, Deb added a 1-1/2" x 4" piece of Basic Black with SEAL Adhesive for the overlapping element. She stamped the Zany Zoo leopard in Memento Black ink onto Basic White, die-cut it with the coordinating die and colored it with Blends. The nose is colored with Smoky Slate and the tutu and slippers with Lemon Lime Twist. She colored the flower with Basic Black and added a single Basic Rhinestone Jewel to the flower center. The character is popped up with Dimensionals. She finished with a small bow created with the Lemon Lime Twist ribbon from the Ribbon Duo Pack. So sweet and delightful!
