There’s a wonderful stamp set Stampin’ Up! have for making children’s cards. It’s called Zoo Babies. So, I made 2 cards – one for a girl and one for a boy.

20150623_160516

The sequin trim just adds a bit of bling to the card and I stamped the monkey and punched it out with a circle punch and used a Scallop Circle punch to back it with and layered it on with Dimensionals.

20150623_160604

I used the stars from the Perpetual Birthday Calendar set to add something a bit different to the card and used some of the smaller zoo animals in the set for the inside of the card.

20150623_160435

Here’ the boy version. Almost the same but using Island Indigo which I think goes well with the Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim. Zoo Babies is a great stamp set for children’s cards as it gives you quite a lot of scope for different cards.

Did I tell you I made a few of these? I stamped with Stazon and then used ink and my Aqua Painter to colour the images.

20150621_140023

I used the butterfly stamp which comes with the set to stamp on the outside of the envelope and inside the card. I also love how you can use punches to layer sentiments.

20150621_140037

The card is the size of a normal C6 card but opens up . It just gives a bit of difference to the normal card.

20150621_135838

You can see the layers of the card in this view and I certainly think it adds a bit if pizzazz to the card. The Venetian Crochet Trim is just tied in a knot and added to the back of the layers.

20150621_135957

This card is a little different again being water coloured with Blackberry Bliss. By just doing a bit of a wash and going back later you can get depth of colour.

20150621_140007

You can see the butterfly stamps on the inside of the card and the outside of the envelope, in this view.

Who doesn’t like little ducks for a baby card? I have 2 to share with you today, one in Very Vanilla and Watermelon Wonder and one in Very Vanilla and Bermuda Bay.

20150623_160227

I used the Lucky Stars Textured Impressions Embossing folder on both cards and stamped the duck in the co-ordination colour. It’s from Something For Baby stamp set.

20150623_160323

I used Baby’s First Framelits to cut all the duck out. I just love framelits which are designed to cut out around stamps.

20150623_160248

Here’s another view with the heart stamp used inside the card and on the outside of the envelope. I inked it up once and then just kept stamping to get a graduated colour look. The Sequin Trim is held on with Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow) which I just love.

20150623_160341

This one has the heart stamp going in different directions both on the card and the envelope.

Do you get the feeling I may like butterflies? (Oh and owls but that’s another story). I love this photopolymer stamp set for its versatility and how you can just change something a bit and get a totally different look.

20150621_135733

This card was stamped with Stazon then water coloured using an Aqua Painter and re-inkers. I placed just a couple of drops of re-inker in the lid of the stamp pads and dipped the Aqua Painter in to get the colour desired. I started with more of a wash and added colour to gain depth. I did wash of Crumb Cake around the whole image – it looks much darker in the photo than in real life. It adds a bit of depth to the image.

20150621_135800

I used the butterfly in the stamp set to decorate the inside of the card and the outside of the envelope.

20150621_135819

You can see all the layers on the card which also add to the depth of the card. I’ve used the Venetian Crochet Trim as an embellishment and backed the Extra Large Oval Punch with the Decorative Label Punch and adhered them to the front of the card with Dimensionals.

Do you sometimes wonder how you can make something look a little different by not doing much? Well I took out my 42-year-old Elna sewing machine (it’s a little portable one) and did some stitching onto card. The secret is to stitch before you add adhesive so you don’t ‘gum up the works’ in your sewing machine. This is what I came up with:

20150616_105246

I used Whisper White on Tip Top Taupe and added some of our Burlap ribbon cut down and fringed.

20150616_105318

Adding the Burlap Ribbon and the sentiment on Dimensionals gave the card some extra dimension, which I like.

20150616_105428

Here’s another card made using the same elements however I did this one portrait style and added some pearls.

20150616_105441

One of the stamps in the set is a fern leaf and I have used that stamp to stamp inside both cards and stamp on the outside of the envelopes.

Do you love butterflies? I do and I think they give almost any project a real lift. So, I have used the Bold Butterfly Framelits in today’s projects.

20150617_145942

I’ve combined this card with some left over pieces of Bohemian Designer Series Paper, an old favourite stamp set Papillon Potpourri and a new stamp set Garden In Bloom which is a Photopolymer set.

20150617_145953

I used Papillon Potpourri butterflies to stamp the inside of the card and the outside of the envelope – you can’t have a naked envelope and you may as well brighten the postman’s day.

20150617_150009

You can see by adding Dimensionals to the body of the Butterfly Framelit, you can make it look quite 3D and it gives the card dimension. I used the smaller of the Butterfly Framelits on this card.

20150618_142453

This card is similar, however I have used the larger of the two Butterfly Framelits and some pieces of Timeless Elegance Designer Series Paper.

20150618_142506

Again, I have used Papillon Potpourri to stamp inside the card and the outside of the envelope.

20150618_142521

Again, I used Dimensionals in the centre of the body to raise it from the card base and added Rhinestones to the centre of the Butterfly body on top. The little banners cut from Timeless Elegance DSP have Candy Dots (Neutrals) added to them and I punched the banners with the Triple Banner Punch.

Do you ever find yourself with lots of little scraps of card and Designer Series Paper and not know what to do with them? Well here are some cards where I have used up some scraps.

20150617_120956

I had a strip of Bohemian DSP left over after making some projects with the Gift Bag Punch Board and decided to use them on cards.

20150617_121020

This is the second card made from the strip of left over Bohemian DSP. I simply swapped sides and position of elements.

20150617_121039

Two quick and easy cards using up left overs not just of Designer Series Paper, but card stock as well. The feathers are made by using the Extra Large Oval Punch and scoring the centre of the oval and folding in half. Then use Paper Snips to ‘feather’ the edges.

I hope you like these cards. They’re a bit different to my usual style.
