Stampin’ Up! Hippo Happiness Baby Card

Good Morning!  Today I have something something completely different – a Baby Card made with the Stampin’ Up! Hippo Happiness bundle! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used. Adhere a strip of the textured Petal Pink paper from the Subtles 6″ x 6″ designer series paper pack to the Petal Pink dotted panel.  Adhere the layered DSP panel to a Whisper White mat and then to the front of a Petal Pink card base with liquid glue. Cut the fancy stitched panel from the Hippo and Friends Dies in the Stampin’ Up! Hippo Happiness bundle from Whisper White.  Stamp the balloons in Soft Sea Foam, Petal Pink and So Saffron on Whisper White and cut them out with the coordinating die.  Stamp the hippo from the Stampin’ Up! Hippo Happiness photopolymer stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black and Petal Pink on Whisper White.  Hint:  Stamp the darkest ink first and the lightest last for easier alignment.  Stamp the face in Memento Tuxedo Black, then the partial body in Petal Pink and the full body in stamped off Petal Pink.  Cut out the Hippo with the coordinating die. Stamp the balloon strings from the Stampin’ Up! Hippo Happiness stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black and the clouds from the Moving Along stamp set in stamped off Balmy Blue on the fancy Whisper White die cut.  Adhere the balloons with glue dots and dimensionals and adhere the hippo with dimensionals.  Stamp the sentiment from the Moving Along stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Whisper White and cut it out with the small skinny Stitched Rectangles die.  Adhere it to a folded Whisper White ribbon and then to the card front with glue dots.  Pop the hippo fancy panel on the card front with dimensionals. For the inside, stamp the balloons in Petal Pink, So Saffron and Soft Sea Foam on a Whisper White panel.  Adhere a strip of Petal Pink Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP to the bottom of the panel and adhere the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Hippo Happiness bundle has the cutest two step stamping little critters and some great background die cuts that are perfect for children’s cards.  And the Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP pack with the dots is a perfect compliment.  This is for a baby girl, but the card can also be done in So Saffron or Pear Pizzazz for a gender neutral card or in Balmy Blue or Pool Party for a baby boy.

Stampin’ Up! Welcome Easter New Baby Card

Good Morning! Today I am sharing a fun new baby card made with the cute little lamb from the Stampin’ Up! Welcome Easter cling stamp set. This set has three really cute baby animals, some accent stamps and wonderful sentiments for Easter or celebrating little ones. Sadly is it being retired, so I just had to make a colorful baby card. You can find the supplies I used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of the polka dot paper from the Best Dressed designer series paper to a Pear Pizzazz mat and layered Dinoroar designer series paper pieces on top of it at wonky angles. I cut three stitched hearts using the little heart die from the retiring Stitched Labels Dies from Pear Pizzazz, Mango Melody and Lovely Lipstick card stock and adhered them around the card because babies and hearts go together – right? I adhered the decorated panel to a Daffodil Delight Card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment in Pear Pizzazz ink on a Whisper White panel and cut it out with the die from the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I added glue dots on the back and attached some ribbon and added a Pretty Peacock rhinestone before adhering it to the card with more glue dots.

I stamped the little lamb from the Stampin’ Up! Welcome Easter stamp set in Basic Gray ink on a Whisper White. I colored it with Light Old Olive, Light Petal Pink and Ivory Stampin’ Blend markers and cut it out with a Layering Circle Die. I cut a scalloped circle from Pretty Peacock and adhered it to the back and popped the lamb on the card with dimensionals.

I adhered a strip of the polka dot Best Dressed DSP to the bottom of a Whisper White panel and added three more hearts to the top corner. I adhered the panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat and then to the inside of the card with multipurpose liquid glue.

Baby cards are always good for a smile and I think any of the baby animals from the Stampin’ Up! Welcome Easter stamp set would have been cute. And fun, colorful designer series paper always goes great in a baby card! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
