A Pink Baby Elephant

Girly Baby ElephantI adore the little elephant in the Zoo Babies stamp set!  I don’t know why, but in my mind that little cutie has always been a boy.  So today, I decided that I needed to make the elephant a female baby elephant.  And I think she looks adorable in pink.  🙂

I used some of my Gingham Garden Designer Washi Tape and a little strip of Blushing Bride dsp to add a little color.  And I stamped the Alpha wheel with Calypso Coral ink on the card base.  I really need to remember to use my wheels more.  I have some that I really love.

The scallop circle comes from the Perfect Pennants Bigz Die.  I love how it works with the 2-1/2″ Circle punch.

Enjoy your Thursday!  Thanks for stopping by!


Baby Elephant Congratulations

I needed to make a baby card, and I really love this week’s Deconstructed Sketch so I decided to use it for the baby card.

Deconstructed Sketch No. 129

I love the Zoo Babies set and don’t get to use it enough, so I knew that I wanted to use it for this card.  I also used the super fun Alphabet Press embossing folder.

Baby CongratulationsI know it’s a bit of an unconventional color scheme for a baby card, but I like doing that.

We are iced in here.  The kids got to miss school yesterday, and it is so cold here that I’m not sure when this stuff will melt.  I just feel so blessed that we didn’t lose our electricity, as so many around here did.  I hope you are safe and warm wherever you are!

Enjoy your Saturday!  Thanks for stopping by!


Rhino Baby — FMS96

It’s Wednesday, and that means it’s time for another challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  It’s my week to host the challenge, and I wanted to design a card with a tag.  Just to mix things up a bit, I turned the tag on its side.

It’s really a pretty simple sketch, and I think it has a lot of possibilities.  I pulled out my Zoo Babies set and decided to use the cute little rhino.

An Elephant Baby — FabFri22

There is a great color challenge for you at Fab Friday today.

I must say that I have neglected Tempting Turquoise for a while now.  Stampin’ Up has come out with some beautiful blues — Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, Island Indigo and Bermuda Bay; and I have been using them so much that I actually kinda forget about Tempting Turquoise.  And it’s such a pretty color!  So I was glad that this challenge came along.

Elephant Baby

I used a stamp set that I just received, Zoo Babies.  The images in this set are so cute!  My kids are really too old for this set and I very rarely need a baby card, but I couldn’t resist this sweet set.  It will be fun to play with it.

I hope you’ll be able to join in this color challenge at Fab Friday!  I always enjoy seeing what you make.

Enjoy your Friday!  Thanks for stopping by!
