FMS278: Party Animal Pop-Up Card

It's birthday season in our family, and one of my nephews turns 5 next week. When I saw the sketch for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week, it gave me the inspiration I needed to create my nephew's card. Here is the sketch:
And here is the card I made:

It's a pop-up card inside, and I have a horrible time trying to get a good picture of the inside of cards, but I figured I would show you anyways just so that you can see the possibilities with this suite of products.

A light box and background is at the top of my list to improve my pictures. The natural light in this new house is terrible! Well, at least for taking pictures. Blocking the Arizona sun in the summertime I suppose is worth more than a few good pictures, haha!

Stamps: Balloon Adventures
Ink: Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango, Emerald Envy, Crushed Curry
Paper: Emerald Envy, Whisper White, Crushed Curry, Pacific Point, Party Animal DSP
Accessories & Tools: Large Numbers Framelits, Stars Framelits, Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits, Big Shot, Gold Metallic Thread

Noah's Ark Baby Card

A few weeks ago, I was invited to a baby shower for my husband's cousin and his wife. They live in Minnesota, so I couldn't go to the shower, but I wanted to send them a little gift and card anyways. When I saw the shower invitations, I immediately knew which stamp I wanted to use. Unfortunately, it is retired, but I included lots of current product. You could easily substitute your favorite baby stamp and leave the layout the same.

I used the Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen to color the image, and it was so much fun! Coloring takes me back to my childhood. Maybe that's why it has become such a craze lately. The Watercolor Pencils have been a hot item so far, but they are currently available, so snatch them up! I'm hoping for an even larger selection in the new Annual Catalog because they are such great coloring tools!

I'll be going live on Facebook this Friday afternoon at 1:00 PM (MST) to share a few projects using Sale-a-bration items. Make sure to stop by my Naptime is Stamptime group and check it out!
