Zoo Babies and Flower Pot Designer Paper

Zoo Babies and Flowerpot DSP

It’s funny how an older stamp set can look so fresh and new when paired with a brand new package of designer series paper.  And the color scheme becomes so easy – Night of Navy, Tangelo Twist, Crushed Curry, Lost Lagoon and Garden Green.  In this card, I’ve combined Zoo Babies stamp set and Flower Pot Designer Series Paper by Stampin’ Up!

  • You’ll find lining up all of the zoo babies easier if you cut out your 3-1/8″ Circle first using the Big Shot and Circle Framelits.  That way, you can get a nice  fit.
  • The Stampin’ Up! Fringe Scissors are perfect for making grass!
  • While Stampin’ Up! doesn’t carry In Color buttons, I found that a Calypso Coral Button from the Subtles Button Pack matched perfectly.  A bit of White Baker’s Twine is tied through the center.
  • Did you notice the Crushed Curry Candy Dot used for the elephant’s eye?  Boy, those things come in handy!

Butterflies for Baby

Welcome to the world, Josie Lorraine Kuhn!  Such a tiny little thing at 6 lbs. 8 oz. and a full head of luscious black hair!  Proud parents are Lynda and Andrew of Hall, New York.

Here's a special card for the Kuhn family:

This was an extremely unusual card for me to make.  There's almost no stamping, and the card gets its "wow" from a simple piece of designer paper.  This happened for two reasons.  First, I only own one baby stamp!  You're aghast, I know.  But it's true.  I have Nursery Necessities stamp set and while it's a very nice set, I've used it as my only baby stamp set for nigh on three years!  Can't I have another, please?  The second reason is that I just got the Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper Pack from the Occasions Mini Catalog, and I'm smitten with every single sheet of paper in it!  I added some glitter to the paper with my 2-Way Glue Pen and some Dazzling Diamonds glitter, but that's it — it's just that gorgeous!  I did use Nursery Necessities to stamp the sentiment on Sahara Sand card stock and framed it nicely with a Styled Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware piece.  Instead of using the brads given me that matched, I chose Pretty in Pink brads to add a bit more color.  Did you know that the Designer Label Punch punches out the exact size and shape for this nifty little metal accent?  Pretty handy, huh?  My final little touch is a couple of "stray" butterflies from So Saffron and Pumpkin Pie card stock run through the Big Shot using the new Embosslits Die Beautiful Wings.  When I first saw this die, I thought the butterflies were so tiny that I wouldn't use them.  But now I'm constantly picking out the teeniest butterfly in the lot!

Jackson’s Arrival

Here's a card I made for my son and daughter-in-law to welcome Jackson home from the hospital tomorrow.

Although Jackson's room is a puppy theme, I did borrow the color scheme of the nursery to make this card – Night of Navy, Bravo Burgundy and Brocade Blue.  I created the main image using Nursery Necessities stamp set and inking each part of the ship with Stampin' Write Markers.  I stamped once on the main Very Vanilla card stock, then a second time on a scrap and cut out the base of the ship and attached it with Dimensionals.  I built a frame around it by punching Bravo Burgundy card stock with the Scallop Square Punch six times and attaching them to the back.  If you haven't already figured out, this is my new favorite punch!  Just love the versatility it brings to each project!  Did you notice the clever ribbon treatment?  I couldn't decide between the Bravo Burgundy and the Brocade Blue 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, so I used them both!  I attached a piece of each to the back of the Very Vanilla card stock, then tied them in front.  Kinda cool, huh?  Finally, I added a star designer brad from the Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware kit.

I'm really having fun decorating the inside of my cards lately.  Here's the inside of this one, as well as the lined envelope.  I got my Night of Navy Patterns Designer Series Paper from the Level 1 Hostess Paper pack.  You can take this handy package of paper for free if you order over $150 in product or host a workshop totaling $150 or more!  Why not get your workshop on the calendar for 2010!  Or place your own order at my Online Store HERE.  Contact me today!
