Welcome to my entry for the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge 196 - Heidi's "All About Occasions" Challenge.
Two friends of mine each had a new grand baby arrive recently, so I made them each a card. I know it's playing up to stereotypes, but one had a girl, and one had a boy, so I made one pink and one blue card.
These cards feature the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the Animal Outing stamp set with the coordinating Animal Friends Thinlits dies.
The top patterns are the the back sides of the constellation papers...but swapped (the stars are the back of the pink constellation paper, and the polka dots have the blue on the other side.) I hid the seam where they meet with the 3/16" Braided Linen Trim.
I coloured the animals with Stampin' Blends Markers. If you've never thought you could colour you should give these a try...they come with a light and dark shade of the colors that help you shade and highlight like a true artist. The coordinating dies make it very easy to cut them out, too.
We all have occasions coming up on our calendars...why don't you make a card and link it to the challenge, too?
Here are the products I used to make this card. Click on any image below to go to my Online Store and order.
I've been paper-crafting since 2006, and an Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator since 2010. I love sharing my craft with others, either through classes or by creating special cards and gifts that meet their needs. Join me in creating fun!
