Zoo Babies Invitation

A few weeks ago, a friend asked if I would make 1st birthday invitations for her son. I agreed, and here is what I came up with:


Zoo Babies is my go to for the little people in my life. The animals are just so much fun! I did use two retired items on these cards - Crushed Curry embossing powder, and the Date, Place, Time stamp (not pictured) on the back. But the rest is current product, and easy to reproduce! Now on to making a birthday card for the little guy...

Stamps: Zoo Babies, Larger Than Life Alphabet & Numbers
Ink: VersaMark, Crushed Curry, Smoky Slate
Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Cucumber Crush, Brights Designer Series Paper Stack
Accessories & Tools: Crushed Curry Embossing Powder (retired), Heat Tool, Balloon Framelits, Big Shot

Happy Stamping!

June 2015 Paper Pumpkin: Happy Thoughts

Some months, you just need some easy creative time. This was one of those months. Paper Pumpkin is perfect for that, because the project is always easy, and if you don't want to change anything about it, you don't have to! I liked the cards in the kit this month, so I decided to make them as is. The only change I made was to use the Cottage Greetings stamp set on most of them so that the greetings would fit the type of cards I needed. Take a look:




I loved that there were masculine cards in the kit! Those are sometimes tricky to come up with, and I know these will get used up pretty quickly! I liked the stamp set this month, but the greetings just didn't fit what I needed. It will be great for future cards though!


Even making the cards exactly as intended, I was left with an extra sheet of wooden accents, and a few green stars. I'll save those for another time.


July's Paper Pumpkin kit will be shipping later this month. If you don't want to miss out, make sure to sign up here by July 10.

I'll be spending next week with family, so it will be pretty quiet on here. I'll be back in the middle of the month to share more new projects with you. In the meantime, don't forget to sign up for my Cottage Greetings Card Class To Go! See details here.


And don't forget that anyone who orders $25+ by July 6 using hostess code SPSG7HRS will receive a $5 gift certificate from me, good on your next order!

Happy Stamping!
