Now that I've made all of the formal introductions, let's get onto the projects!

Make Some Noise Card

One of the things I love about the Jungle Buddies collection is that you can use the stamps alone, or you can just accent the die-cuts like I did here with the lion.

Lion

I cut all the pieces from white cardstock and then used Copic markers to add all of my color.

Sentiment

The sentiments included in the coordinating Jungle Buddies Sentiments set are so clever, with this being my favorite. What a unique and fun way to congratulate someone on an achievement!

Wild Birthday Card

On my next project I wanted to focus on the new Cover Plate: Mighty Jungle dies. Not only do you get an awesome frame that really helps set the stage for a jungle themed project, but you also get some gorgeous detailed individual palms and other accessories.

Vines

I layered all of them to create a complete jungle background. 

Down

Just like in the card above, I die-cut all the pieces from white cardstock and added my color with Copic markers.

Sentiment

The sentiment was stamped in VersaMark onto a strip of Orange Zest and heat embossed in white.

Camp Postcards

I have always loved creating postcard sets, there is something so fun about gifting a set to someone knowing they will put them to good use.

Postcard

I always make my postcards double layer cardstock so they are thick enough to stand up to the mail. This also makes it so you don't need to worry about bleed through, especially if you are using markers. I just adhere the two layers together with a strong adhesive like Scor-tape.
