Casually Crafting Blog Hop – Black and White

Welcome to our monthly Casually Crafting Blog Hop, we are a group of Stampin’ Up demonstrators, who would like to share our projects with you. We love cards that are simple and easy to make with just a few products, these would ideally suit beginner and casual crafter. We will be sharing our ideas on the 3rd Friday of each month and you can hop around the group and gather loads of inspiration. This months theme is Black & White with a Pop of Colour. For this project I have used the stamp set Zany Zebras, with pops of colour from the new in colours.

Party Zebras

For this project I decide to showcase three of the new in colours as my pop of colour for the Zany Zebras. Using Magenta Madness, Just Jade and Misty Moonlight for my the layers and the party hats on the zebras. This stamp set is an ideal stamp set for a beginner as really effective projects can be created with minimal products. I have used in colour cardstock, Basic Black and Whisper White with Tuxedo Black Memento.

Aren’t these little zebras just the cutest?…

I used Stampin’ Blends in the three colours used (but these could be avoided by stamping the party hats onto coloured cardstock). I have also decorated the sentiment with a coordinating in colour Enamel Dot, but this could be omitted. I used the square stitched shapes for the Image, but a trimmer cut square would be just as effective. The background layer has been decorated with party hats and stars from the stamp set.

I have decorated the insides with two zebra heads facing each other, surrounded by stars, I think this is very cute.

Whilst these may look like a simple set of coordinating birthday cards, the Magenta Madness one is actually an twist pop out card…

I hope you enjoyed my Black and White with a Pop of Colour themed project and the rest of the Casually Crafting Design Team Blog Hop projects.
