Zany Zoo and Cute Critter Cards with the Stampin’ Up!® Zoo Crew Suite Collection


I’m just home from the Stampin’ Up! Incentive trip to Norway* and one of the things I love about these tips is getting to know and spend time with other demonstrators from around the world. And of course we trade cards and bring little treats for each other. The inspiration for today’s card is straight from a card shared with me by the fabulous Lynsay Mahon, Canadian demonstrator from Edmonton, Alberta.
(*required disclaimer – less than 1% of demonstrators earn this trip)

I changed out the critters on the card (who can resist an accordion played by a bear??) but the layout and card design are all Lynsay’s idea.


Since the Zoo Crew Designer Series Paper is included in the special going on through June 30, I thought this was the perfect way to showcase these sweet critters – including Lynsay’s birthday celebration elephant (see it in the video) and the accordion-playing bear that I’ve featured.

Don’t forget to decorate the inside of your card – with a banjo playing boar, preferably.

Watch the video tutorial or check the photos to see how the elements in this card come together – and I don’t even have the Zany Zoo stamp set – so I substituted with the Charming Sentiments stamp set, another excellent choice to let you have the perfect greeting on hand no matter the occasion.


The Stampin’ Up! trip to Norway was absolutely fabulous – here are a few of my photo favs!

With the June Designer Series Paper special, this is the perfect DSP focal point idea to make the most of pretty papers and cute critters!
