Animal Expedition - ICS Blog Hop


Another Fun Blog Hop with the Inspire, Create, & Share group.  We moved out hop from the 1st Wednesday to the 1st Saturday for just this month because of the 4th of July Holiday. With the amazing Buy 3 get 1 Free - Designer Series Paper (DSP) promotion, we will be sharing ideas using different papers with you today. 
My project uses the Animal Expedition DSP.  While you can stamp these adorable animals, did you know you can actually cut them out of the DSP using the Animal Friends Thinlits Diets?  While some of the images are not the right size on every sheet, some are.  So, how did I cut them out in two different directions without fussy cutting them? 

Place the DSP on top of the Stampin' Pierce Pat, then placed the thinlit die upside down (cutting side up) over the reverse image.   Using the Paper-piercing Tool poke holes in strategic places around the outside of the die.  Once finished, turn the DSP over and line up the die (cutting side down) and cut by running through the Big Shot Machine.



I used the same DSP for the background and Animal Outing stamp set for sentiment, which I cut out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits and the matted piece behind that was cut using the Layering Circles Framelits. 

I hope you will scroll down to the end of the post and leave a note to let me know your thoughts.  Just remember to scroll back up and click the next button below to see what the next hopper has to share with you.
