Simon Says Challenges “XYZ” and “Stencil It”!

This weeks Simon Says Monday Challenge is “XYZ” and I immediately thought of one of my favorite things – zebras!  So, “Z” is for zebra this week and the Wednesday Challenge is “Stencil It” & I decided to use my zebra stencil!  I used the Crafters Workshop Mini Zebra Print stencil and Ranger Texture Paste on black paper.  In red I die cut the Memory Box Corner Stone die, along with circles in black and white using the Sizzix circle dies.  The Leaping Zebra stamp is by Rubber Soul and I added clear Wink of Stella and Crystal Effects to him.  I also added some black Ranger Enamel Accents around him.  I attached the whole thing with foam tape to the card.

The “hello” is a Lawn Fawn die that I cut out in black, white and red and offset it when I glued them together to give it some dimension.  I also added clear Wink of Stella to the word.  I added a white ribbon behind the word to make it stand out a bit more against the wild zebra print.  The card is a lot of laying of white, black and red – one of my favorite combinations.

I started making cards in the 90's and have recently started creating again. It has been exciting to catch up on all the new techniques and tools that are now available! I also enjoy cross-stitching and any creative endeavor. I live in Carmichael, CA which is a suburb of Sacramento.
