African Adventure

Hi bloggers!  This post is dedicated to showing off the other coordinating die set from the Safari Collection; African Adventure.  This set has several great sentiments, some trees, grass and birds. It contains all the extras to go with the animals to create stunning cards like the sample shown here.  The stamp set that matches the animals also includes the trees and grass so you can make detailed cards.  I love that this collection can be used to make either male or female cards with ease, plus just think of the fun you will have making beautiful backgrounds to go with them!  Leave your comments on this post and your name will be entered into the drawing to win this set!  The next post will be online at 3pm today.  I'm looking forward to seeing you back here then!  All for now, Sue x

Afternoon Sue. I hope you have organized a repeat run on your African dies and stamps as they are selling fast by the sound of it.
You've excelled yourself this time. Using these dies on different coloured backgrounds, knows no end. They are useful for all genders of children and adults. Can't wait to see more of your cards illustrating them. Hugs xx Pauline in S.A.

Someone is going to be very lucky. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

Muriel Kelly said...

Hello Sue and all
Can't have one without the other for sure, definites, my absolute favourites and the stamps will be perfect with them. I made a background with distress oxides about a week ago and changed my mind about the card I was making. Until today I have been wondering how to use it - another problem solved, it has been put away until I can get my hands on these fabulous die sets.
Hugs

Viki Banaszak said...

I love the background on this card! So pretty.

Donita Naylor said...

I like this one even better than the animals, but you’d need the animals to make these sentiments work. You’ve made the trees look so natural, and with far fewer tree dies than it seems.

Did you get straight A’s in school?

Trees Trees they are my passion and these are FABULOUS, xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Not only do I love the tree dies but those sentiments are fun as well. This is a wonderful switch from the other dies in this release and I really like it for masculine cards!

Simply love the African Safari Collection. My favourites so far xx

Sheila Aitken said...

Hi Sue. I love every collection you bring out. However this one has to be my favourite ever. My lounge is inspired by Africa so it would look lovely on a piece of mixed media canvas. My son has severe autism so it would be great to do some canvases with him if he sits still long enough. Xx

Hi again Sue. I really thought I had already commented on this one but I don't see it. Maybe I twittered on too much about my family in Africa.
Having spent 11 holidays in South Africa this card set is a must have for me.
