African Animals

Hello crafters!  Here we are at the start of day five and I would like to share the new Safari Collection with you.  I just love these and there are so many fabulous ways to create stunning backgrounds with which to use these silhouette style dies.  However, if you are not a lover of the silhouette look, then you are in luck because we have a beautifully detailed set of matching clear stamps that can be used with them!  This set is called African Animals and has a lovely selection of animals to use, including a pair of giraffes and a mama elephant and it's baby!  These will work so well for so many occasions too, think travel, retirement, birthday or just because!  Leave a comment if you would like to be entered into this drawing.  The next set will be here at noon!  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue,
What a fantastic start to the day, these dies are just fabulous. And like your background, I'd see the African night with them.................
I've got the stamps, too - for versatility.
I've always wondered - are Zebras striped white on black/brown or the other way round? We've got them in the Zoo but I can never decide.............
Hugs, Rose

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a gorgeous card and although I love all the big cats (no surprise there lol) elephants are my most favourite of all. I love your Woodland Animals and they are regularly in use so I don't see any reason why the African Animals should not join them.

These are a dream come true! A nice thing about them being silhouettes is that you can cut Them from patterned paper. How about a gingham giraffe or a calico elephant?

Seems like we’d need a big game permit to bring this collection home
