Stampin' Up! Animal Outing Stamp Set for cute baby cards

  • Stampin' Up! Animal Outing for Baby Cards

Stampin' Up! Animal Outing

My husband's niece recently had a baby boy, and I created this card using the Stampin' Up! Animal Outing Stamp Set with the coordinating Animal Friends Thinlits Dies for them. It turned out so cute!          


I used a Smoky Slate cardstock for my base card. Then a layer of Blueberry Bushel.  Then another layer of Smoky Slate dry embossed with the Tufted Embossing folder.  

For the image layers, I die cut a circle using the Stitched Shapes die, which leaves stitches along the outer edge.  I stamped this Blueberry Bushel circle with the hearts from Treat Time stamp set using Blueberry Bushel ink.  

Then I stamped the kangaroo in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored the image with Light Smoky Slate Blends, and the little Koala is colored with Light Crumb Cake Blends.  I used one of the dies in the Animal Friends Thinlits set to cut out the Kangaroo, mounted it on Dimensional and added it to the Blueberry Bushel circle.

For the sentiment, I first stamped the square from the Swirly Frames Stamp Set.  Then I stamped one of the sentiments from Animal Outing in Memento Tuxedo Black, and then hand cut around the edges.

Before adding the sentiment to the card, I tied a narrow ribbon of Blueberry Bushel to the top third of the card.  I also added three small Silver Metallic Pearls to the face of the card.     


I decided to make more of these cards for one of the swaps I participated in during On Stage in Orlando last week.  These went together very quickly with the help of my Stamparatus Stamp Position tool.  Here's how:

Instead of stamping the Kangaroo and then cutting it out with its coordinating die, I die cut all of the Kangaroo shapes first before stamping them.  Then I took a 5 X 7" sheet of cardstock and cut one more Kangaroo out of it and used the opening in the sheet to position my Kangaroos into the cut out opening and quickly stamped them using the Stamparatus.  It was so fast it felt like cheating!  My Stamparatus saved me sooo much stamping time for swaps! You'll want to add the Stamparatus to your Christmas Wish List today. These cards were such a hit that I came home without a sample of the card for my own display board!  I'm so glad I took photos of this card while I was creating it, because I don't have a single one left.
