Baby Steps


Stampin up baby steps congratulations

Yep, they're incredibly cute.  The sweet elephants on the Baby Steps single stamp were a delightful choice for my Top 10 Favorites from the new Idea Book and Catalog.  I grabbed Stampin' Up! Whisper White notecards and envelopes set for a fun, gift sized card (5 x 3 1/2").

  • Stampin up baby steps elephant card I love buttons . . . I bought every color in the new Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog.  Although many button colors match our card stock and accessories, don't be afraid to experiment . . . for example, an Old Olive button is quite at home with Pear Pizzazz.
  • Ink up the elephant ears a second time, snip and pop them up on Stampin' Dimensionals.  Sweet.
  • Need to celebrate twins?  Use markers to just ink up the baby elephant and stamp a second baby in the line-up.
  • Stampin up nursery suite designer paper Nursery Suite Specialty Designer Series Paper offers fresh, colorful
    patterns and die-cut paper.  I used a snippet of the die-cut paper for
    the scallop border.  Cool, yes? 
  • The little punched out areas of the die-cut paper could be perfect raindrops . . . hang on to them for a rainy day!

  1. thanks for the great twins idea!!! I am going to make that for sure! My sil is due with twins any day!! Hope I get my order in time!!

  2. To Michelle: I love the Presto Patterns paper . . . consider using a brayer and then stamping over it . . . the embossing peaks thru both the brayered color and stamped images. I’ll show more soon! Hugs, M

  3. Love, love, love it. I have these cute elephants too and after seeing your card I can’t wait to use it! I always love your cards!

  4. Super cute card Mary!! I met one of your downline (Mike) at Convention and he told me about a challenge you host and I so want to check it out as I am looking to do SU! only ones. So, I have you in my reader now so I can follow them, lol!!! *STAMPIN HUGS* Alex

  5. This card is really cute! It is hard for me to think of a cute baby card. Do you ever think of ways to use the Presto Pattern Specialty paper. I am having a hard time thinking of something cute with it.
