Zany Zebras with a Sentiment Framed Corner

Who loves their Stamparatus
(stamp positioning tool)?

 . . . and who wants to see a ton of ideas for using it? 

Be sure to check out all the stops on today's Blog Hop.

With my card today I wanted to focus on framing the focal point.
These little Zany Zebras are so cute and playful, kicking up their heels.
I wanted something equally playful to frame them

Setting the card layers at an angle adds to the playful look of the card.
The black matte dots and flower help lead your eye across the card
. . . but the corners were very bare.

The solution was to use the sentiments
to create a frame for the zebras.

However! these were red-rubber stamps.
Using a stamp positioning tool like the Stamparatus
was absolutely essential
to getting symmetrical, straight sentiment placement.

The Stamparatus also made the process easier with placement of the zebras
I could lay them both on the card and play with their positions
Then close the lid to mount them to the plate and they were ready to stamp.

Those Zany Zebras are cute enough on their own
but look closely and you'll see several things done
to make them even more special.

A subtle splash of color in the ear to balance the pinks
Wink of Stella glitter brush over their whole body
and - check out the eye and hooves

See the shine on the hooves and the glisten in the eye
That's the Fine Tip Glue Pen

Your details really lift the card, and red rubber stamps are much easier to work with the stamparatus when you need them lining up aren't they!
