I used the Stampin’ Up! stamp sets Zoo Babies and Endless Birthday Wishes to create my card for The Paper Players sketch this week.
Be sure to stop by The Paper Players blog to check out the awesome projects created by the other Design Team Members. And be sure to play along too! 🙂 Here is the sketch for PP255:
I started by adhering a narrow strip and a wider panel from the Go Wild DSP Stack to a panel of Tip Top Taupe card stock with SNAIL, then to a Delightful Dijon card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I punched a panel of Whisper White card stock with the Ornate Tag Topper Punch, then trimmed a tiny bit off each side. I stamped the sentiment from the Endless Birthday Wishes stamp set in Tip Top Taupe on the top of the tag.
I stamped the giraffe image from the Zoo Babies stamp set in Delightful Dijon ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock, cut it out and adhered it to the tag with SNAIL. Then I inked the image of the bird with my Tip Top Taupe, Cucumber Crush, Delightful Dijon and Watermelon Wonder Stampin’ Write Markers and I stamped it on a panel of Whisper White card stock, cut it out and adhered it with a Glue Dot the tag.
I punched a panel of Basic Black card stock with the Ornate Tag Topper Punch, then adhered it to the back of my Whisper White tag with SNAIL. I pulled a strand of Delightful Dijon 1″ Dotted Lace Trim through the hole at the top of the tag, tied a strand of Basic Black Baker’s Twine around it, then adhered the tag with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card front.
I stamped the little giraffe image from the Zoo Babies stamp set in Delightful Dijon ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock inside the card.

Thanks Claire! Too bad that you missed convention, it was lots of fun! 🙂
I know it might a little thing, but what did you use for the black down the left front of your card? I like it, just couldn’t figure out what it was.
The paper is from the Go Wild DSP Stack, that pack of paper is awesome! 🙂
Such a fun card, Amy! Love the Zoo Babies combined with the animal print paper, just perfect! I also love the softness and contrast that the lace ribbon adds, and I am so pleased you liked the sketch!
Thanks Sandy! It is a great sketch! 🙂
Ooo I love this fun card Amy! Great co-ordination of paper and stamps – I made one similar using the zebra last week, such fun! I love the Delightful Dijon lace trim that finishes off your tag too and that cute popped-up toucan!
