Global Stamping Friends Hop – Kids Cards

Hi everyone!

I found a brand new (to me) group to hop with this month! It’s the Global Stamping Friends, and it really is global!! This hops around every month on the first Friday. There are folks all around the world joining this, so please take a look at all the fun stuff people have to share.  Each month is a different theme, and this month it’s Kids Cards!

I decided to get out a set I haven’t used in a while, but had specifically bought for my own kiddo, the cute dino set, No Bones About It. I combined old with new and added in some branches made with the Seasonal Layers thinlits. Check it out…

It’s actually a lot simpler to make than it looks. I used the same technique I used with my fall leaves in a previous post (click here to see that) – sponge daubers!
In this case, I used Lemon Lime Twist, Tranquil Tide, and Fresh Fig! Who would have guessed those colors!  I used some Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip for the pebbles, sponging a bit over the paper once stamped. I also used the daubers on the sentiment. It’s hard to tell in the picture, but the top branch is popped up with some dimensionals, so it really does give the 3D feel.
And… the party hat is party-ready with some Wink of Stella on it. How fun is that! It even got the seal of approval from my hubby. 🙂

I hope you enjoyed this card that would be perfect for any kiddo’s birthday!
Thanks for looking, and please leave a comment if you can!
