Zoo Babies on Parade…

Do you love the Zoo Babies?  It was one of those “I’ve gotta have” sets for me and I have loved playing (ahem….working?) with them.  Here’s my card today…


I’d like to give credit to Jan Tink for the idea of this card front.  Mine is different from hers in several ways, but the initial idea was hers.  These little animals just make me smile.  Are you interested in making this card?  Here are the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…


  • Paper:  Sahara Sand, Bermuda Bay, Whisper White and Hello Honey cardstock plus Lullaby DSP
  • Ink:  Pistachio Pudding, Sahara Sand, Hello Honey and Memento Black
  • Stamps:  Zoo Babies, Endless Birthday Wishes (sentiment)
  • Tools and Embellishments:  1″ and 1 1/4″ Circle Punch, Scallop Topper Punch, On Film Framelit, Pearls and Daffodil Delight Seam Binding


  • Base card is 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
  • Bermuda Bay layer is 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″
  • Lullaby DSP layer is 5 1/4″ x 4″
  • Punch out film frame in Bermuda Bay.
  • Stamp Zoo Babies on White cardstock and “fussy cut”
  • The Hello Honey Ribbon tie through piece is 1 3/4″ x 2 1/2″, punched with Scallop Topper Punch using post it note to hold this small piece and insert into the center of the Scallop punch.  Punch both ends.
  • Stamp word on Whisper White and punch with 1″ circle punch
  • Layer word circle on 1 1/4″ Bermuda Bay piece.
  • Adhere Bermuda Bay and DSP layer together and tie Daffodil Delight ribbon around and through the Hello Honey piece (adhered with dimensionals) tying a bow.  Add two circle pieces with dimensionals.
  • Add film frame with dimensionals.  The elephant is flat and the giraffe and lion are on dimensionals.
  • Add pearls for eyes.
  • The inside of the card and as you can see the envelope are stamped to coordinate with the card front.

If this post inspires you to try this card, I’m delighted.  I hope you will come back often and always find a little inspiration for your own creations here.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…”I wake up every morning planning to be productive and then a voice in my head says, “ha-ha, good one!” Then we laugh and laugh and get on the internet.”

You better believe I’m inky…but HaPpY!
