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.

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.

Moving Along Baby Boy Card

Moving Along Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

What's not to love about the whimsical Moving Along stamp set by Stampin' Up!.  Today's card is a Baby Boy Card, but the Moving Along stamp set is versatile enough to fit many occasions.  

Sentiments Include

Way to Go!!!

Happy Travels!

Thanks So Much

You're the Best

It's Your Day!

Welcome Baby


Moving Along Stampin' Up!

Of course, you also have the option of combining the cute train, planes, and cars with sentiments from another stamp set as I did.  The A Grand Kid stamp set works well for not only grandkid cards, but also for grandparent cards.


Stamping Technique

How to Make An Amazing Grandson Train Car

Stamp the grandson sentiment.  Note:  I did trim the first word off when I fussy cut my train car.

Next, ink the wheels and the train bed with a black marker and stamp below the words.  Hint:  I recommend using the Stamparatus for stamping the train bed so that you can easily stamp the image more than once for smooth dark lines.

Finally, trim around the train bed and words to form a train car.

To create the square frame, I simply cut a square from within the square using the square dies from the Stitched Shapes dies.  See Supply List Below.
