Japanese Anime Menagerie


Today I’m participating in Kylie’s Monthly Blog Hop along with demonstrators from all around the world.  Be sure to click on the links below to view everyone’s great creations!

This is a card I’ve made for a friend’s daughter who is turning 14 soon.  She’s very into Japanese anime and cats (and her family owns a few bunnies), so I pulled out the brand-new Menagerie Mix-Up set with its coordinating dies.


These cute critters are a lot of fun to play with!  You can mix-and-match lots of different elements to create a wide range of looks.  The 36(!) dies in the set make it easy to customise your creations. I’ve popped up all the heads with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The background stamps are from an SU! set called New Year Celebrations that was exclusive to the Japanese market until they did a limited release in the U.S. as well…happily I made a visit back during that time!  After stamping the Whisper White panel I ran it though my die cutting and embossing machine with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder for a little more dimension.

Now join us in hopping around to see all the other great cards!
