Celebrate - Lion Gift set #1



Hello thanks for swinging by today. As you know the Magnolia DT is very busy to show you lots of cards with the new fabulous "Pet Collection". My approach to this kit this time was to show you how wonderful those stamps are to make cute little gifts for kids AND adults. Some are quickly made some not... Since my kids are home from school i do not have too much time for crafting so i have to split my postings up. I wished i could post one set in one posting :-). Please come tomorrow and see the second part of my first gift set ( i have in total 4 sets made). I thought it might be helpful for some of you if i took the numbers down that i have used to color the lion in.
Copics: E31(shadows & ears, E34 (tail, mane & ears), E11 (tummy), E17 (Tail, mane), E51 (blending), YR20 (body), YR21 (dark lights on body), Y23 (mane), R20 (checks, nose & paws)

Here is how i have made the card. First i have stamped the palm tree (Magnolia Party Collection 2008) than stamped the lion (Magnolia Pet Collection 2009) right over the palm without masking and again on a second piece. Airbrushed with E50 over the entire image, colored everything in, and cut the second lion out adhered it with pop up dots over the lion with palm tree.
Papers: (Stampin up Chocolate chip), DCVW (Safari), My Minds Eye (Penny Lane)
Embellishments: Stampin up (Ribbons), FoFaLa (Buttons), Making Memories (safety pin, brads)
Tools: Cuttlebug (Tiny Tags), Martha Stewart (arched lattice border punch)

You can pre-order all the new Pet Collection stamps at 7kids college fund or get some cuties from any of the other Collections RIGHT NOW :-) to play with!
