Sweet baby!

Hi stampers!

I actually made this card yesterday...can you believe I cranked out two in one day???? I was amazed with myself. I pulled up Kristina's color challenge for the week and I just had to get making something with it. I need a few baby cards...so I thought it was perfect! Not to mention it was chocolate chip. close to cocoa, pink pirouette and whisper white........




I stamped the sentiment from congrats....FREE with a purchase of $50 or more during sale a bration....in chocolate chip on a close to cocoa base. The background panel is from the pink pirouette patterns pack. I flanked it with a piece of chocolate chip punched with the eyelet punch and a piece of whisper white punched with the scallop edge punch. I then matted that onto the card base and tied a piece of white organza ribbon around it, I had to add a sweet bow instead of a knot since it is a baby girl card... :) I stamped the lion and elephant in close to cocoa and the giraffe in pink pirouette onto whisper white before punching them out with my 1 1/4 inch square punch. While punching them out, I intentionally punched out what I wanted to hang over the edge of the square. I then stamped those same colors onto scraps. The lion was actually stamped three times - once in close to cocoa ( base lion) , once in pink pirouette ( the mane) and then in chocolate chip ( the face). The giraffe was only stamped twice in pink pirouette - once for the base and once for the cut out giraffe. The elephant was stamped three times - twice in close to cocoa 9 the base and the cut out) and then again in pink pirouette (the ear). Each layer of the animal was mounted with stampin dimensionals onto the whisper white 1 1/4 inch square. I then mounted those entire squares onto 1 3/8th inch square punches with stampin' dimensionals. I just love the animals in Wild About You...they are so versatile!!!!


Do you want to get a look at that dimension...it is so hard to capture it on a straight on shot....and you all know how much I like my dimension ;) !

I also got busy creating a cute card inside....wanna see???

let me know what you think......me and my mojo had good times yesterday... :)
