Supplies listed will work for all 7 cards shown on this page. All are available from SundayInt.com
- Jungle set - get the large set to have more animals, borders, backgrounds and choices.
- Junior Jungle set (available only in large to mix in youngsters with parents
- Vertical Inspiration cardstock (Scroll for choice) & Regular cardstock
- Sticker paper - choose opaque & not glossy for best coverage
- Marvy brush art markers
- Blending Blox graduated color stamp pads
- Scissors - regular/ordinary
- Damp rag or a wet paper towel for cleaning stamps between colors. Dee uses a cut up old towl on a small dish & throws it in the washer.
- Stamp borders for inside of card first.
- Then stamp backgrounds and borders of front of card.
- Choose feature images and stamp them on opaque sticker paper. Use quality sticker papers. Do not use cheap ones that are not completely opaque or those that do not accept ink perfectly.
- Cut out feature images moving paper as you cut rather than moving scissors. Leave a small amount of white around the edges.
- Before removing sticky backing of sticker paper, place and overlap some feature images where wanted. Try different places and positions.
- Remove sticky backing by placing image where wanted, remove only a corner to hold in place and then carefully remove the rest smoothing with hand.
- If you wish, touch up any errors with the pens (Dee likes to use LePens for their smaller points but if careful, your brush art markers will work fine if they still have a point on them.) A White Writer is excellent for covering up small errors on white paper. For making many cards, stamp multiple images on the sticker paper and cut out all at once leaving the protective back on until ready to use them. Dee and her staff do this and keep the images organized in transparent sandwich bags.
