WWYS #27: Zoo Babies

Hi Everybody and welcome back to another fun week of What Will You Stamp! This week our featured stamp is Zoo Babies! It's a pretty popular stamp set so I am hoping that we will have quite a few challengers this week. I love this entire stamp set but for today's challenge I was really feeling like I wanted to use this paper from the Go Wild DSP paper stack and I love the rhino paired with it. FYI I'm not really an animal print kind of girl so I overlooked this amazing paper for way too long. The back side of every sheet has a fun black and white print and I have to admit that even I like some of the animal prints (way to go SU!). I haven't made a flip card in quite a while so I decided I would bust out my Circle Card Thinlits Dies and make an extended flip card. So, here's my card!

I embossed the rhino in Smoky Slate and used Kraft Ink and my Gorgeous Grunge stamp set to create the background behind the rhino. I added some silver thread and some neutrals candy dots and there you have it folks-a fancy flip card! 
Do you recognize where that sentiment came from? It's from the Tin of Cards stamp set and I thought the big, bold font was just right for this card. Of course I used my Triple Banner Punch to get those flags just right. I feel like I use that punch for almost every project these days. 

This card was fun and super easy to make partly because I love this stamp set so much. Zoo Babies was one of the first sets I purchased when I discovered Stampin' Up! just about a year and a half ago. I feel like this set is kind of an SU classic (not that I've been around long enough to declare it a classic but you know what I mean-It's been around for a couple of catalogs and is still popular). Do you have this set? Is it one of your go-to sets? Just in case you don't have it here's a look at what the whole set looks like. I'm really wondering which stamps the rest of the design team chose to use this week because they are all super cute!

I hope you liked my card for this week's WWYS challenge. I can't wait to see what beautiful creations you all will submit for us this week over at What Will You Stamp?

Catch you all soon and until then have a terrific day!
