Zebras, Lions and Babies Oh My!!!

Babies, Babies everywhere.. I have 2 more baby gifts to get out in the mail this week and I needed cards for them. Man! Did I loose my MoJo... I really need to make a resolution too not stamp for long periods of time.

This card came to me as I designed it and more ideas popped into my head as I went along.. But the second card WOW!!! are you ready? 6 hours to put that card together...in the end they are both adorable so I can't complain!!

I'll show you the other card in the AM.. It's almost midnight and I'm running on 4 hours of sleep from last night so I need to get some shut eye!!

This is a cute set I've had for awhile.. I reorganized all my old stamps and got them out where I can see them and I'm using them finally!


My base is Bashful Blue and I used a piece of retired SU designer paper in Celery & Bashful Blue..I stamped the Zebra on Whisper White and colored it with watercolor pencils and then after it dried I cut it out and added it to the front of the card with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment above the Zebra in Black Ink. The stiching along the edges is done in Blue thread to match the card base..


Something I don't do often.. I continued to the inside of the card and added a little extra touch in there as well.
