A giraffee, kangaroo, elephant, koala and sweet little birds round out the menagerie of characters. They are all just too stinkin’ cute for words. Because I used our fabulous watercolor pencils, they were all quick and easy to color.

Also, the Zoo Globe set has a mix of fonts for lots of occasions. It’s a 17-piece photopolymer set making it easy to line up the images. Be sure to use your Stampin’ Pierce Mat to get a fabulous crisp image.

Seems like Stampin’ Up! had a great plan for this set. Why? The dies in the Snow Globe Scenes set coordinate. That makes it super easy to cut the globe opening and base.

Because I used the Forever Greenery DSP for my background it looks like a little jungle theme. Then I finished off the shaker with the Flowers for Every Season Gems. A little of those go a long way.
