Zoo Babies Congratulations



I’ve been thinking on the Create with Connie & Mary color challenge all week and finally came up with something tonight 🙂 I am also entering the button challenge at The Paper Players, they were the perfect embellishment for my card.






I saw that the Alphabet Press embossing folder is one of the weekly deals and decided to use that for the first time. I bought it last year when it was a deal. Using that folder led me to making a baby card using Zoo Babies.


2014 Card 120 - SU Zoo Babies

(Ignore the black strip at the top, I can’t seem to get rid of the shadows in my pictures!)


I used the Tangelo Twist as a card base and on the lion.  I embossed the folder using Bermuda Bay and added Basic Gray buttons. I finished the buttons off with Bermuda Bay twine and added a sentiment stamped in Basic Gray. I added a second neutral color with Baked Brown Sugar as a ground for the lion.


Thanks for visiting!

Good morning!


I was checking out a bunch of challenges yesterday, and saw several that inspired me in making this card for my friend who recently became a grandma.

Zoo Babies Shower Card



My sister and I have a baby shower to go to today. She did the shopping and I, of course, volunteered to make the card.  I have had the Stampin’ Up! Zoo Babies stamp set since the fall or so and never used it.  The sketch at Mojo Monday was perfect for getting several of the animals to fit on the card front.
