Kristina's Color Inspiration #54: Animal Stories



Happy Sunday! Hope everyone has had a good weekend! I played in the stamp room a lot, bad me! But I have an excuse, the washing machine is broken and thank goodness the part came in and the repairman will be here tomorrow afternoon! Let's just say, we're down to using beach towels after our shower! lol!


Kristina's Color Inspiration #54 snuck up on me this week, but I got a chance to play along last night. I used my new Animal Stories set, getting inspiration from this post by Tina over at travelingmama. Thanks, Tina! I really loved this poster by Land of Nod. Animals and alphabet letters seem to be all the rage lately, I even bought these by K & Company for 40% off for like $6 and laminated them to use in my classroom next year. Look how cute they are here in this nursery!


Sorry, I got off on a tangent there! The card didn't turn out exactly like I had envisioned, but it's okay. I think I should have used Cool Caribbean instead of Soft Sky, but I didn't think it so much that I redid the card! ha! ha!


Okay, gotta get some things ready for school tomorrow, enough playing! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

ok...very cute card...although I am a little slow...it took me a minute to realize the letters weren't spelling a word...I kept trying to figure out what you could've meant...then it dawned on me...OH they are the beginning letters!! It's the weekend my brain is off! :)

The new in colors work great with Kristina's color challenge! Great idea to use the animals too for the challenge. I like the alpha set you pointed out those animals are so darn cute! Gosh....I wish that was a stamp set...lol! I may have to be a copycat and order those for my preschool class. I'm always looking for cute things to decorate my classroom.

So sweet, I love it! It will be great in your class room and in a nursery! It would make a cute little ABC book for kids too! Great job! (Glad your washer is finally getting fixed!) :)

Very cute! Love the color combo. So...you're going back into the classroom next year??? Third grade again? What were you doing this year? For some reason, I thought you were doing something different.

This is cute. If my brother and his wife have a baby boy, I would use this instead of the joke I made.

This card is so inspired! I absolutely love how you used the animals and stamped them in cool colours. The curves of the animals are just perfect the nest the letters in. Such a good eye for design!
