I shared a baby card with you at the weekend, which I made for a friends new arrival. The jungle/safari theme makes a lovely change from blue or pink baby cards... so I was even more excited when my mum created this beautiful quilted blanket after I asked her to make something for the nursery.
All I told her was that it needs to be orange and green and have a jungle/safari theme. Isn't it absolutely beautiful! Here are a few close up's of the individual animals.

Stampin' Up! fans may recognise some of the fabrics that were used, bits and pieces left over from the fabric range that is now retired unfortunately.

It seems that baby cards are always blue or pink! So I was excited to get to make something in a different colour, for a specific theme to co-ordinate with the nursery theme, for my friends new arrival.
Here's the card I had fun making with a variety of punches, although I did case the idea from Julie.
Cardstock - Tangerine Tango, So Saffron.
Punches - Oval, 1" 3/4 circle, 1" 3/8 circle, 1/2" circle, scalloped circle, Owl Punch, Boho Blossoms.

Plenty of people still read 'books' rather than having a Kindle. I was recently asked to create a card commission with a book theme, for someone who also likes animals. Here's what I came up with, you may recognise them a little.

I often find myself stuck for a card last minute and never have something suitable for the recipient. So I thought these would work for either a male or a female. You could switch the colours to something more girly too.
I've used the Create a Cupcake stamp set and the Decorative Label punch from Stampin' Up! for these with a few other materials and tools.

I've use 2 different embossing techniques on this card. The background uses the Medallion stamp (retired) and a heat gun with clear embossing powder. The Top Note and butterfly has been embossed using the Big Shot machine and the Beautiful Bouquet embossing folder (the butterfly embossing comes as part of the Beautiful Butterflies embosslits die).
Maybe this card is a little busy, what do you think?
