Zippy Zebras Fun

Monday, February 3rd, 2020

Hi crafty friends and welcome back.  Sandi MacIver here and I have some Zippy Zebras Fun to share with you today.  This adorable Zippy Zebra stamp and die combo is from our friends over at My Favorite Things.  Their stamp artwork is always adorable and uplifting and this set is no exception.  Who can resist a Zebra on a scooter?  NOT ME!   haha.

I started by blending the background in Peacock Feather and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Inks for a bright playful look.  Next, I splattered with water for some distressing.

The black and white Zebra stamping is super easy and you can use Copic Markers Co and C1 (light grays) to add a little shadow down the side for depth.

I colored the scooter with Copics in Blues:  BG11, BG13, Bg49 and the tires in C5 and C6 with a bit of White Gel Pen to highlight.

There are sweet butterflies and flowers in the stamp set too, as well as coordinating dies which I have used to cut out my Zippy Zebras (love that name).

Next I cut out my “Hugs” from white card stock using Alpha dies.  The final sentiment is white heat embossed on black.

The large letters and Zebras are mounted to the card with Foam tape to add depth and extra interest to the card front.

This stamp set is fast and fun, would look great with any background and works for all occasions ….a must for your stamping stash.

That’s it for me today, Hope you enjoyed the card and here is a list of the supplies I used.  Clicking on them will take you to the Scrap ‘N Stamp Store where you can see a larger image and add them to your shopping cart.

Until next time – Toodles!


You’re My Zebra with My Favorite Things!

Hello and happy Saturday! Laurie with you today to share a fun and easy card featuring the Zippy Zebras Stamp Set and co-ordinating dies from My Favorite Things!

This is an adorable set and lends itself well to quick cards. Because zebras are black and white, these images don’t even need to be coloured. Although, I did add some quick shading with Copics.

I did some ink blending on the front of a white, 4.25X4.25 card base with a light blue ink using my Taylored Expressions Blending Brushes. Love these, by the way. They are totally different than the Picket Fence Studio brushes. Much softer and sturdier, in my opinion 🙂  I used a wavy grass die from Lawn Fawn and used a light green ink to add some colour.

I coloured and die cut a few of the images from the Zippy Zebras set and set up my scene using foam adhesive and a little bit of liquid glue.

Because I can’t leave well enough alone, I took a black pen and quickly added a simple black line and some dots around the card. I often do this if I think a card is a little too clean and simple!

And that’s my quick and simple card for today!  I hope you can swing by the Scrap N Stamp online store and check out ALL the new goodies!

Thanks for dropping by! Have a great weekend!
