Crocodile/Alligator Card

Today I have the last of my second trio of Zoo characters for you, my Crocodile (or Alligator).
You'll notice he has change slightly from my original photo. I made the head all one colour and only have the mouth down to his belly in the lighter green. I think he looks better this way.

This one is a 6x6" card base.

 
Supplies:
Cardstock: Bazzill
Ink: Olive Green - SU, Warm Red - Colorbox, Basic Black - SU
Stamp: See Ya Later - SU
Die: Label 18 - Nestabilities - Spellbinder
Embossing folder: Tiny Mosaic - Cuttlebug
Misc.: 5/8" light pink grosgrain ribbon, foam mounting squares, black ink marker - SU, white gel pen.

Giraffe Punch Art

Here is one more member of my little Zoo, a loveable little big giraffe.
Don't let my colour choices fool you, this fellow is not just for girls. He'd be great on a boy card as well as a scrapbook layout.
On a card (mine are standard A2, 4.25x5 ins) a full body giraffe won't fit very well. Hence I only created him from the neck up.


Supplies used:
Cardstock: Bazzill
Ink: Colorbox red and Walnut brown chalk ink, Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry - SU
Stamp: Banner Greetings
Punch: for the fence - Modern Label - SU
Misc.: white gel pen (SU), Black Zig marker

Full punch art instructions for the giraffe are below.

Come back soon for three more Zoo creations - quick little preview below.

Charming Rhino Punch Art

Happy Canada Day to my fellow Canadians!
Hope  you are able to spend time with friends and family today!

Thankfully our Calgary weather is holding up; so we should be able to keep dry when my sister comes over for a BBQ this evening.

Just a quick post today. I am sharing my charming little rhino with you.

 
I posed him in a side view sitting position, waving hello. He can easily be posed sitting like my Father's Day hippo though I(front view), or standing up. Even hanging over a large banner (or photo for a scrapbook page) will work quite easily.
 
Supplies used:
Cardstock: Bazzill
Ink: Colorbox black and red, Marina Mist - SU
Stamp: Lots of Thoughts - SU
Embossing folder: Square Lattice - SU, Flora - Spellbinders
Die: Banners Framelits Dies - SU
Punch: medium heart - PB
Misc.: foam mounting squares, white gel pen (SU).
 
Full punch art instructions for the rhino are below.

 
Come back soon for my cheerful giraffe.
