I have a few cards to share with you today using products from this gorgeous release. My first three cards feature the new and adorable Little Safari Stamp Set. I first stamped all of my images onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. Next, I used the coordinating Little Safari Die Set to cut them out.

I combined these sets with the beautiful new Picture Frame Die Set and foliage (leaves) that comes with it.

Copic Colors Used:

  • Elephant: W00, W1, W3, W5, W7
  • Ears: RV00, R81, R85
  • Cheeks: RV52

Copic Colors Used:

  • Giraffe: YR20, YR21, YR23, E34
  • Giraffe Spots: E31, E23, E25

Copic Colors Used:

  • Lion: YR20, YR21, YR23, E34
  • Lion Mane: E31, E23, E25, E29

For my last card, I combined the Picture Frame Die Set with the new Gentle Giraffes Die Set to create a sweet little scene of a mama and baby giraffe. I used my sentiment from the Little Safari Stamp Set, but you can mix and match with whatever sentiments you already own. For my background, I combined Dried Marigold, Festive Berries, and Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide Inks for a safari-themed background sky.
