Baby Bear and Buffalo Check!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a cute baby card made using the Baby Bear stamp set and Buffalo Check background stamp! While this card is more of a boy theme, I have added a bonus card down at the bottom made with Sweet Little Something (now retired) that is more of a girl theme. Do you struggle with the 2 and 3 Step stamps? I always did until I changed the way I stamped and will share this technique with you as well, even if you use the Stamparatus! Let’s get started!
For the card base, cut a piece of Night of Navy cardstock, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and score at 4 ¼”:

The base layer is Soft Sea Foam cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamped in Night of Navy ink with the Buffalo Check background stamp, and I used a ruler and my Gray Granite Stampin’ Write Marker to create a “plaid” look:

To stamp the bear, I first use the detailed stamp in Gray Granite ink, then I used the “not as detailed” stamp in Sahara Sand ink, and finally used the solid bear stamp, also in Sahara Sand ink. I find that starting with the most detailed stamp makes it easier for me to line up the images. The bear is then cut out:

For the front of the card, you will use this design from the Twinkle Twinkle DSP, cutting out with the largest scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits. The White Sheer Ribbon is colored with the Dark Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Marker, the sentiment is stamped on a ½” piece of Whisper White cardstock in Night of Navy ink and is layered on a ¾” piece of Twinkle Twinkle DSP, with both ends cut with the Banner Triple Punch:

After the ribbon is dry, I tied it into a small bow and adhered it to the bear with a glue dot. Then I adhered the scalloped oval to the base layer, the bear and sentiment are adhered with dimensionals:

This piece is then adhered to the card base:

The inside sentiment is on a piece of 4” x 5 ¼” Whisper White cardstock, the is stamped in Night of Navy ink, and then I added some adhesive backed sequins:

Here is the girl themed card I made with Sweet Little Something, changed the colors used to Gray Granite and Petal Pink:

Little Twinkle Fun Fold Card

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is an easy fun fold card featuring the Twinkle Twinkle Suite! What I love about this suite is that the stamp set is versatile (not just for making a baby card), the colors of the DSP are soft, and the adhesive backed sequins and coordinating punch add just the right amount of accents! The template for this card is very easy and can be used for any of your card making creations!

First, start with Gray Granite cardstock, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 2 ¾” and at 5 ½”:

The inside card base is Soft Sea Foam cardstock, cut at 3 ¾” x 7 ½”, and scored at 3 ¾”:

fullsizeoutput_2862

For the outside card base, I used the star design from the Twinkle Twinkle DSP, one piece cut at 4” x 5 ¼” and two pieces cut at 4” x 2 ½”:

fullsizeoutput_2865

For the inside card base, I cut one piece of Whisper White cardstock and one piece of the Twinkle Twinkle DSP at 3 ½” x 3 ½” each:

fullsizeoutput_2868

I stamped the outside sentiment on a piece of Whisper White cardstock, heat embossed with Silver Emboss Powder, and fussy cut out. The moon and stars are punched out of Silver Foil Paper with the Twinkle Builder Punch and the adhesive backed stars are from the Twinkle Adhesive Backed Sequins:

To put the card together, adhere the DSP to the outer card base and the DSP and cardstock to the inner card base:

fullsizeoutput_286efullsizeoutput_2871fullsizeoutput_2874

Before you adhere the inner card base, position it where you want it to go, overlapping the front panel of the outer card base about half way. I used liquid glue on the back of the inner card base since this does not set right away and I can move the inner piece if needed:

fullsizeoutput_2877fullsizeoutput_287a

I tied a piece of Night of Navy Medium Baker’s Twine in a bow around the front panel, adhered the embossed star and the three smaller stars with snail, the bigger star with a Mini Dimensional, and then positioned the moon so the tip is overlapping the inner card base a little and adhered with Mini Dimensionals. This will help keep the card closed:

The inside sentiment from Little Twinkle stamp set is stamped in Night of Navy ink and I used some of the adhesive backed stars for embellishment:

Isn’t this a fun and cute card?? You can easily change the DSP used if you need a more boy or girl themed card. This can also be changed into a child’s birthday card by using the “Love you more than all the stars” for the inside sentiment!
