Animal Stories Birthday

So far, I'm keeping up with the blog while having fun at vacation bible school. Now to also find the time to create some new cards. I owe my sister-in-law a get well card while she recovers from surgery, our neighbor's little boy turned one over the weekend and Tim and I will celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary this weekend. Busy, busy!

Before I get to work on some new creations, let me finish up the creations from a couple of weeks ago. This card uses lots of new products from the current 2009-2010 Idea Book & Catalog. Here is the recipe:

Stamp Sets:
  • Animal Stories (Item #116716)
  • The More the Merrier (Level 3 Hostess Set)
  • Teeny Tiny Wishes (Item #115370)
  • Full of Life (Item #111500)
Card Stock:
  • Whisper White (Item #100730)
  • Melon Mambo (Item #115320)
  • Bermuda Bay (Item #115317)
  • Melon Mambo (Item #115656)
  • Rich Razzleberry (Item #115658)
  • Watercolor Pencils (Item #101879)
  • Stampin' Dimensionals (Item #104430)
  • Snail Adhesive (Item #104332)
For this card, I decided to color the cupcakes with the Watercolor Pencils and then cut them out and selected three of the cupcakes to be carried by the elephants on their trunks. I used Stampin' Dimensionals to lift the cupcakes off the page. On the inside, I used the birthday sentiment from Full of Life along with another elephant stamped in the Rich Razzleberry.

This card is certainly appropriate for a child's birthday. Next, I need to design a card using the elephant that is appropriate for an adult since my mom likes elephants. I have some time to work on it since her birthday is in October.

I hope you enjoy this card and stamp set. I'll have more cards featuring this set in the future.

God Bless & Happy Stamping!
