Ever since I first saw the Animal Outing set in the catalogue back in May I’ve wanted to create baby cards with that cute Kangaroo and Koala image but I’ve never found a background I was happy with, until now. The new Buffalo Check background stamp gives the perfect amount of detail without taking over from the cuteness of the Kangaroo and it can be any colour you want.
Petal Pink was my choice for a baby girl card purely because of the matching embellishments from the Twinkle Twinkle Suite. A little bit of bakers twine wrapped around the background layer helps to ground my focal point of the Kangaroo and also adds a little sparkle.
Behind the Kangaroo I added three layers to give some more interest to then card, the first is a circle of Whisper white cardstock punched from the 1 3/4″ punch, the second layer is Petal Pink cardstock punched from the Starburst punch and the third layer is Vellum which is cut from the second largest circle in the Stitched Shapes Framelits.
For the blue version I used Pool Party as I thought I had the matching twine aswell, turns out I don’t or more likely I’ve lost it! So I used the silver and white bakers twine which looks just as good. To add some more bling to each card a added three stars from the Twinkle adhesive Backed Stars. I love these because half of the pack are iridescent and half are silver so match these two cards perfectly.
Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s cute little cards.
Today’s card features one of the new hostess sets In the City. This photopolymer set is probably one of the biggest Stampin’ Up! has ever released with 60 stamps in it. It’s a great set where you can build all different kinds of building to create your own little city. The stamp that really jumped out at me when looking at this set is the little stork, its just so tiny and cute and really made me want to make a baby card, so here it is:
How cute is this card? Using the In the City set I created the little house scene, what I love most about this set is that most images have an outline and then a filler stamp. So the cute little stork’s bundle can be pink or blue or any colour you want.
The background paper comes from the Bundle of Love Specialty DSP and wow this paper is gorgeous, one side has patterns with Blushing Bride or Soft Sky paired with Very Vanilla. The other side is Very Vanilla with gold foiling, I knew this paper had some foiling but didn’t realise its every sheet! I love it!
I finished the card off with a bow made from the new Gold Metallic Edged Ribbon, this ribbon is lovely and the gold edge at the extra touch of luxury.
Remember the In the City stamp set is only available as a hostess set with an order over £150.00. With the new catalogue launching you are sure to have plenty on your wish list.
