Sophisticated Animal

Good morning Creative Friends.

How many of you buy a stamp set and have every intention of showing it all the love and attention it needs and then promptly put it in your stash and forget about it?  Come on, I know we all do this... so today's post is about one of those stamp sets, Sophisticated Animals SS-0300, by Fun Stampers Journey.


I wanted to use the animal heads right off the bat, but was a little intimidated by them at first so I used them to make a background for my first card.  Then I got brave and stamped the elephant head, mask it off and stamped the vest body with it.  I really wanted a saying that said "your an animal", but sorry to say there is not one (all though I told RG I totally needed one!)  Instead I used the saying "Let the adventure begin". 

The next card I created used the same set, but was totally in my comfort zone.  I mean, who doesn't like a sharp dressed man?  This would be perfect for the guy in your life, or for a invite for a girls night out?!!!!  I used my Striped Love background stamp, but didn't ink it up so it has a distressed "manly" look to it.

As always, here are the links to the products I used for todays cards.
