Handmade baby cards using the Zoo Babies stamp set by Stampin' Up!
I made these baby cards as I just wanted an excuse to play with the ever so cute Zoo Babies stamp set.
All 3 are based on the same design, a Very Vanilla cardstock base, a layer of Subtles Designer Series Paper (I've used the colours Blushing Bride, Pool Party and So Saffron) a circle die cut from Sahara Sand cardstock and another circle die cut from Very Vanilla cardstock with one of the Zoo Babies animals stamped in Sahara Sand Ink.
I've sponged the edges of the polka dot DSP with Sahara Sand ink and added some Sahara Sand Lace Trim to give it a subtle vintage look.
All 3 cards have different messages - Hello Baby, Welcome Baby and Congratulations. The Hello Baby sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set, the Welcome Baby sentiment is from the And Many More stamp set and the Congratulations sentiment is from the Zoo Babies stamp set. I punched out the sentiments using the Word Window Punch.
They are so cute! I can't wait to give these to new parents. Its so much nicer to receive a handmade card instead of a shop bought card, don't you think?
OMG! I'm so excited, I've just seen sight of the new Spring Summer catalogue AND the Sale-a-Bration catalogue. And let me tell you, I've seen some really great new products - stamp sets, designer series papers, ribbons, punches, tools, embellishments....... I cannot wait to get my pre order in and I am so hoping the mental wishlist I've made comes in under my budget.
But for now, don't forget the Autumn Winter catalogue is still live. Make sure you place an order for anything you've put on your wish list and haven't ordered yet. Now that this catalogue is coming to an end, products will be running out of stock - just yesterday I placed an order for some new Christmas stamp set sets to make some of my personal Christmas cards - I am so pleased I got the order in and the items were in stock as I am sure they will be sold out very soon. Some items will be carried over to the new Spring Summer catalogue, I have seen the retiring list so please do let me know if there is any item you want me to check if its retiring or not.
