Baby Card Pink Giraffe

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge this week was Animal Magic. I have a good selection of animal stamps to choose from, but needed a baby card for a friend's shower so went with this cute little giraffe.

This is a 2007 Stampin'Up! set called Bundle of Joy that I've used a lot over the years. The paper and buttons are also old SU that coordinated with the cardstock. The image and star diecuts were finished off with the clear Wink of Stella pen for a touch of whimsy. 

Thanks for looking.

Thank You Gift Card Set

Every year it seems like there's a constant stream of birthdays, weddings and baby showers April through July. A handmade card gift set makes a great small gift or adds a personal touch to a store-bought item. I've made gift sets in the past and often they would similar cards with slightly different sentiments or color variations of a card. This time around I made a set of Thank You cards based on the CAS(E) This Sketch 176.
Here's my take on it:
Handmade thank you cards using Paper Studio Hello Darling paper, Avery Elle Oh Happy Day stamps

I know the card doesn't look like a clean and simple card at first glance because of the colors, but it's just a single sheet of patterned paper so it's very simple and quick to make. I added sentiment from Avery Elle Oh Happy Day set and added a touch of gold washi tape. That's it! The inside of each card and corner of the envelopes are stamped with the flowers from the same set to coordinate with the colors of the paper. The inside of the envelopes are lined with paper from the same collection.

In this set the cards are all the same so my friend can send them to her baby shower guests. I put the set in a clear box I bought from PapertrayInk and finished it off with coordinating ribbon. I used the paper from the same set as wrapping paper and added a coordinating tag.

What kind of card sets do you like to make?

Firefly Mason Jar Card

The card I'm showcasing today is slightly different dimension. It's based on the Mojo Monday 450 Sketch and is a little skinnier than usual to allow for tilted label. I call this the firefly card. It's a little hard to see from the picture, but I used glitter cardstock for some of the die cuts to give the illusion of glowing and added some other sequins to the shaker.

After taking the picture, I realized I forgot to add the jar lid and have adhered it since.Thanks for looking.
