Zoo Babies Revisited for Paper Players 163


Zoo Babies is one of the cutest stamp sets that Stampin’ Up! has so you really just have to have it.  I have used it for new baby cards but this is for a birthday and it has got to be the most fun card I have EVER made!  I love it and just have to show it to you right now!


Do you see the balloons?  I used two of the stamps from My Paper Pumpkin and heat embossed them with white embossing powder then punched them out with the small oval punch.  The fun part was using my Bigz Peekaboo Frames!  I just recently purchased it and thought this would be the perfect time to bring it out of its wrapper.  Now, what do I do?  Well, what kid wouldn’t be thrilled to find zoo babies behind the doors?


Well, I love how this card turned out but I would like your opinion, so please leave me a comment!  Kids’ cards are so much fun to make.  Which stamp set says “kids” to you?  I hope you find time to play with your stamps this week!  I know you will be glad you did.  Until then,

Keep calm and craft on,

My Paper Pumpkin – Seriously!


I hope you all are enjoying your weekend – Seriously!  It’s been a great one for me and having fun with some of my Paper Pumpkin kits that need to get finished.  I am working on some awesome projects but wanted to show you these two now.


I love the exclusive stamps that come in the Paper Pumpkin kits and I know I will go back to use them again and again.  I also worked on the fun-ctional journals that come in the Try it Kit.  Wow, I used Gorgeous Grunge on one of them and my daughter grabbed it to use for school before I could even take a picture of it!  Here is the photo of the second one:


I have to give credit to my sister (and wonderful Upline), Katy, for the idea of using the new in-color ribbon for the belly band.  She had sent me one for my birthday and I just thought that it would be perfect to keep the journal together.  I used one of the cute clips so I can keep stray papers attached and it would also keep my place like a bookmark.

So, what will you be playing with in your craft room this week?  I would love to hear your ideas!  You never know what will inspire someone else so don’t be shy!  I hope you have a great week and look forward to seeing you back here really soon.  Until then,

Keep calm and craft on!
