Zany Zebras Baby Boy Card

Zany Zebras Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Today's card was definitely designed as a Baby Card, but as I look at it I see that it could easily fit other occasions too.  It could be congrats for any sort of child's accomplishment such as earning a new belt in a Karate Class or getting all A's.  The Zany Zebras stamp set by Stampin' Up! makes such simple and fun cards for both babies or children.

Such a whimsical card deserves a little bling and sparkle, so tucked a jumble of Gold Cord behind my energetic zebra and sprinkled a few sequins to dance across my card.

Grandson Baby Card

 

How to Customize a Card

I chose to use my Playful Alphabet Dies for today's Baby Card for two reasons.

Reason #1-I wanted to make a big bold statement, so I cut "WOW!" from Coastal Cabana Cardstock.  Then, I stamped Congratulations with a stamp from the A Grand Kid stamp set.

Reason #2-I simply wanted to say, "A Grandson" on the inside, but I didn't have a stamp that said what I wanted to say.  To playfully say, "A Grandson", I cut an A using my Playful Alphabet dies, then I picked up a snippet of plaid paper leftover from the front of my card to use as a mat, and finally, I stamped a sentiment that had the word "grandson" in it and simply snipped around the word that I wanted to use.

The Colors of Autumn Birthday Card

Prized Peony Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

It's time that I start making autumn  Birthday Cards.  The weather is beginning to change here in Ohio.  We were pleasantly surprised to wake up to 45 degrees this morning.  It's now a lovely 67 degrees with a sunny blue sky.  To usher in the first official day of fall next week, I chose bright autumn colors and revisited the Prized Peony stamp set.  What do you think?  Does it look like an autumn Birthday Card?

 

 

Prized Peony Stampin' Up!

I found coloring these beautiful flowers in Rich Razzleberry, Cherry Cobbler, and a combination of Pumpkin Pie and Mango Melody very therapeutic.  I even colored my background Seaside Spray.  While the stamp set is called Prized Peony, with the bright autumn colors I could almost imagine them being fall flowers.

My mums are all planted and we are eager and ready for the arrival of fall.

It was definitely time to give my birthday cards an autumn feel.
