younger boy birthday card…

IMG_5146 (Medium)I showed a card similar to this that I made for my great nephews 1st birthday, and while I had everything out I whipped up another one to put in my box. For this one I substituted the die cut balloon for big bold buttons and lots of bakers twine. The paper is Stampin up cherry on Top, I fussy cut the scallops down the side, and the Elephant is a stamp from stampin Up Zoo babies set. I taught a class this morning, lovely group of ladies, and while there I picked up a new Kaiser die ( well 3 but this one in particular) – it was the poinsetta die, so I can’t wait to start creating with it. Sometimes it just takes something new to get you into the Christmas spirit!! til tomorrow….

Zoo Babies

IMG_5863 (Medium)the  next few cards are ones I made with one stamp set from Stampin Up – Zoo Babies.the embossing folder I used here is a cuttlebug folder,and I used spellbinders scalloped rectangles dies, and everything else is from Stampin Up . Inks used were soft sky and midnight muse, as was the cardstock ( along with whisper white). I hand cut a banner and the stamps used on the banner were from the stampin up memorable moments set. Another hot day here but have managed to make a few cards – I have an order to fulfil otherwise I would be sitting under the air conditioner duct! Til tomorrow….
