Here's one I put together today. I think it will be perfect for my good friend's upcoming baby shower. I stamped the hippo and monkey, then masked them and stamped the giraffe and elephant. I stamped the hippo and leaves on scrap paper to cut out and layer for dimension. Everything's colored with Copic markers, except the grass. I think that's supposed to be the giraffe's mane, but it makes great grass too when stamped with celery and olive. Then I ran over it with a water brush to blend a bit.

I stamped the little boy, then masked him and stamped the sandbox. Everything is colored with Stampin' Up! markers and a water color brush, then shadowed with Copic's C-1 marker. The solid papers are the wonderful lightly textured Core'dinations, while the pattern paper and paper trim are from Crate Paper. Buttons from Stampin' Up!

This bold red, black and white color combo came to mind instantly for me with the thought of an Asian inspired design. I made the gate fold style card with one side slightly larger. That way the flaps meet off center and overlap. The little silver clip on top is just there to hold the card closed. Unless you like it. Then of course it's a Making Memories neutral Cheeky clip and was all part of my plan. ;-) I actually rearranged the alignment of the sentiment a bit, to fit into my circle. So easy to do with clear stamps and markers!

So here's what I was inspired to create. I thought this Nana's Nursery paper, though pink instead of red, really mimicked the pattern in the quilt. I also used the curve of the nightstand leg to make the front edge of my card. I cut the card base curve by hand, then traced it onto the Nana's Nursery paper and cut again. The sentiment and flowers are from Floral Whimsy. And those little black dots? They're mini faux eyelets. Just poke a hole with your paper piercer, then trace around it with a black gel pen.
Stamps: Floral Whimsy (Verve Visual)
Paper: Pearlized White (Paper Accents); Nana's Nursery Baby Girl (DCWV); So Saffron, Basic Black (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: Onyx black (Versafine); Pretty in Pink, Sahara Sand (Stampin' Up!)
Accessories: paper piercer and template (Stampin' Up!); black Gelly Roll pen (Sakura); rhinestones; Forever Flowers #4 (Prima)

I stamped the dog and colored with Copic markers. The stamp is part of a little set in which you also get that little paw print, the sentiment and a dog bone. So I stamped a trim of paw prints, and half the sentiment on the front. The other half of the sentiment is inside with the dog bone. (See pic below.) I added the little dots myself.
