MFT - May Release Countdown Day 2

Hello!  We're already down to Day 2 of the My Favorite Things New Product Release!  I made two cards today featuring the new Safari Party Stamp Set.  With both cards, I stamped my images with black ink onto smooth card stock, colored them with Copics and then die cut them with their coordinating dies.

For my first card, I used the Oval STAX Die-namics to cut an oval from some Kraft Card Stock.  I added a frame with the Single Stitch Line Oval Frame Die-namics and some grass from the Grassy Edges Dies.  For the sky, I blended some Cracked Pistachio and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Inks and splashed it lightly with some water.

My second card features the same set except this time I only used the single bear image.  I wanted to make the card red & white to go with his fancy clothes.  I created my own patterned paper using the new BG Itsy Bitsy Polka Dots Background Stamp.  I stamped it with black ink on Smooth White Card Stock and white ink on Wild Cherry Card Stock.  For the square in the top center of my card, I diecut some white card stock with the Stitched Square Die-namics and then trimmed a piece of Black Licorice Card Stock to frame it.
