Stampin’ Up! Animal Outing – New Baby Card

I have a baby shower coming up so I decided to go ahead and make the card to go with the gift.

She’s expecting a baby girl which I wanted to reflect in the card…without it screaming pink everywhere.

Now I know, I know kangaroos aren’t pink, but I just couldn’t help myself 🙂

My card starts off with Petal Pink cardstock (although you can’t see it).  I then adhered a pattern from the Twinkle, Twinkle Designer Series Paper over the front.  Next I matted a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock on Silver Foil cardstock.

I wrapped around the front of the card a Silver and Petal Pink Baker’s Twine bow.  I used the Layering Circles Framelits to cut out a scalloped Petal Pink circle and then the Stitched Shapes Framelis to cut out a stitched Whisper White circle.  I adhered behind it a Silver Foil banner.

I stamped the kangaroo (and koala) in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock and colored them in using the Petal Pink and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut them out using the coordinating Animal Friends Thinlits.

I stamped the “Welcome” from the Animal Outing Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on Petal Pink cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I also stamped the “Little One” in Memento Black ink.  I also added a few rhinestones around everything to add a little bling.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Animal Outing – Welcome Baby – Handmade Sentiments #293

This week’s Handmade Sentiments Challenge is a color challenge.  I sure hope you’ll play along!

My card starts off with Pool Party cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Subltes Designer Series Paper and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and embossed it using the Simple Stripes embossing folder.  I matted this on Daffodil Delight cardstock and wound around a Silver/Pool Party Baker’s Twine bow and tucked some Silver Thread under the bow.

Next I stamped the rhino from the Animal Outing Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I colored him in using the Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Marker and used the Pool Party and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers to color in the bird.  I cut it out using the coordinating Animal Friends Thinlits.

I used the same thinlits to cut out some branches in Pool Party cardstock to tuck behind the rhino.  I stamped the “welcome” in Smoky Slate ink and “Little One” in Pool Party ink from the Animal Outing Stamp Set, fussy cut them out, and adhered them using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Animal Outing Big Thanks

“Fussy cutting”

It’s a term to describe having to meticulously cut out an image with scissors.

Nowadays we’re spoiled because we have the Big Shot and thinlits and framelits that cut out the images perfectly for us.  But every now and then, you have to go old school and fussy cut.

My card today put my fussy cutting skills to the test.

The new Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper is so fun and really lends itself to creating a fun card with virtually no stamping.

My card today starts off with Call Me Clover cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Animal Expedition DSP and adhered it down the middle of the card.  Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and matted it on Gray Granite cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment from the Animal Outing Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a panel of Berry Burst cardstock.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.

I then cut Mr. Rhino out using the coordinating rhino framelit from the Animal Friends Framelits, but the other images of the branches and birds I fussy cut out and arranged the images on the card front.

Enjoy!
