Jungle Fever

WOW!  August 1st already?  Where is the time going?

Welcome Back Dies R Us Friends!

Darlene here today and I first must apologize for not having a lot of detail photos to share on today's creations.  When these stamp & die sets arrived I got so excited that I jumped right in and started creating, totally forgetting about snapping photos to share along the way!  Oopsy!  Please forgive me!  These things happen when you age and get excited LOL!
My first card to share is this adorable little Lion!


Here I have used the Stampendous Lion Stamp & Die Set.
Stampendous - Stamp/Die Set - Lion

I used Tim Holtz distress inks and a small sponge to create the background colored panel.  To be quite honest, I wasn't sure how this circle die was going to die cut so I actually cut it on a scrap panel of white card stock then when I realized it didn't cut out just the circle, I grabbed a little larger scrap of white card stock, sponged the background colors and popped up my die cut panel using Thermoweb 3D foam squares.

Tucking this adorable little lion in between to create my scene.

For my second card 
 

I've used another adorable Stampendous stamp/die set called 'Giraffe'.

Stampendous - Stamp/Die Set - Giraffe

This time, after die cutting my Giraffe circle panel from black card stock, I used the Tutti Designs Scalloped Stitched Circles to create my focus panel. 
Tutti Designs - Scalloped Stitched Nesting Circles
 I've actually die cut my first circle panel from white card stock so I could create the background scene.  I popped up my black circle panel, and popped up this cute giraffe.


Behind my black circle panel, I've turned the white scalloped circle panel just slightly to create the illusion of matting.
