Now let me show you some of the ADORABLE stamps you can get from Your Next Stamp!
I created this card using a stamp set created by Jenny Suchin for Your Next Stamp called "Basket Animals". I also used the Small Post Card Stamp set with coordinating metal dies. The patterned paper is by Teresa Collins, and the adorable balloons are also available from Your Next Stamp! I love that the balloons come in three different shapes. SO darn cute! To give my balloons extra dimension I wanted to create my own chip board so I cut each balloon shape out 4 times. I glued three of them together and saved the patterned piece for the top layer. Next I sanded each balloon with my sanding block. I stamped and cut out all of the critters and used a foam square to make them peek out from the top of the post card. I just love this fun, fun card!
For this card I used another favorite of mine, also designed by Jenny Suchin for YNS "Special Delivery". I stamped the elephant on polka dot patterned paper by The Paper Studio. I added more balloons using the same techniques as my card above to create my own chip board. The white crocheted ribbon is from Hobby Lobby and the blue stripe ribbon is from SU. This would be the perfect little card for a baby boy!
After I made the boy card I thought I better create one for the girls to, hehe.
I hope you like my cards!
