Two 4 Tuesday: It’s a Boy! … It’s a Girl!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Are you someone who likes fun, unique cards? Well … today I have two whimsical cards to share with you. Dinosaurs are making a come back, and they are cuter than ever. I’m thrilled to share with you two sweet little cards I created to welcome a new baby.  With the rise in popularity in dinosaurs again, these cute little creatures arrived just in time.

On my take on the “It’s A Boy” card, I incorporated almost all of the products included in the Dinoraur product suite; stamps, dies, designer paper and embellishments.  This little guy is ready to great the world.  The designer paper on both cards are the background, and on this card I teamed it up with Pretty Peacock cardstock & ink.

My “It’s a Girl” card is created using the help from the “Little Twinkle” stamp set.  I embossed the greeting in Flirty Flamingo and dipped it into Clear Embossing powder and heated it up to a shiny creation!  After stamping the broken egg … I added some of the bling from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones. We girls like our bling …

Quick, cute and creative really describes these non-traditional baby cards. They are too cute not to fall in love with … just like the new little ones that come into our life.

Hope you enjoyed todays Two 4 Tuesday post and my twist on It’s a Boy … It’s a Girl cards.

Thanks much for stopping by.  Enjoy the day.

TODAY’S STAMPING SUPPLY LIST …

 

The Fab Four …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

A happy Sunday to you!  I hope you are having a fabulous weekend.  I have been in my stampin’ studio creating all weekend … it’s been far too long since I spent an entire day stamping.

Let me start by saying that “YOU” inspire me!  Yesterday I showed you a simple card and said… “Just think of all the wonderful cards you could make using this layout and some designer series paper!”  So I went into my Stampin’ Studio and created “the Fab Four” just for you!

Now … my “Fab Four” are not the Beatles, however I think it is amazing that they are being honored tonight … “The Night That Changed America: A GRAMMY Salute To The Beatles” on CBS Television Network tonight … Sunday, Feb. 9 at  8 p.m. ET/PT — exactly 50 years to the day, date, and time of the original event – the Ed Sullivan Show.

My “Fab Four” are much easier to recreate … LOL  I decided to use the same stamp set as I did on yesterday’s card; A Dozen Thoughts.  Then I chose the “Quarterfancy Specialty Paper.  All 4 cards will use these two items.  The punch and ribbons will change slightly.

Let’s take a look at the first card share following the exact same layout as yesterday …

I replaced the heart with the butterfly and the red ribbon to white.  A totally different look, just by changing out the paper and greeting; “you made my day” in Island Indigo!  I will have a list of ingredients at the end of the post.

Next you will notice a slight change, as the specialty paper is the “clear patterned” paper.  It allows you to use any color … I chose the Pink Pirouette and the “it’s a girl” greeting.  With the use of the large oval punch and the basic pearls, you can create a simply elegant baby card.

Its a girl

My third card share … I moved the ribbon down closer to the bottom of the card and stamped my “Wish Big” greeting directly onto the new “Essentials Wooden Elements” .  They can be found in the Occasions Catalog.

Now remember, these cards look totally different but I am only using 1 designer paper packet … don’t you love it!

For the last card to round out my “Fab Four” … I changed it up by creating a horizontal card.  Same card pattern, of a ribbon, designer paper, and a greeting!  The button comes from the “Naturals Designer Buttons” found in our big catalog and idea book.

Banners are “hot” right now, so that is why you see them on two of my four cards… besides they look cool.  Just like the hairdo’s the Beatles had when they first arrived here in the US.

So I hope you enjoyed my “Fab Four”…  One simple pattern, one designer paper packet, and one stamp set can be your basic tools to create many different card looks.

Thank you so much for spending a part of your day with me.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend ~
