Noah's Ark has been a wonderful theme for hand made baby cards for as long as I've been stamping. Today I am thrilled to show you these beautiful Stampin' Up! Noah's Ark Baby Cards, Two by Two!
This Two by Two card is by Heather Klump. I love the way the circle (Circle Originals Die with the Big Shot) goes off the page! I know I would have centered it on the page and kept it boring……. Heather has done a beautiful job of water coloring as well. Two by Two (p. 60 #126788) is a single stamp with both the ark and the words on it and it sells for only $8.95!
The sky on this card is from the Designer Series Paper Stacks (p. 162 $21.95) and the clouds are from the Cupcake Builder Punch (p. 185 #121807 $16.95). Doesn't the ice cream topping make great clouds? Notice the clouds reflect the dot pattern of the sky by using the Perfect Polka Dots Folder (p. 189 #117335 $7.95) with the Big Shot. The Baker's Twine finishes the look.
And now for a totally different look, we have this Two by Two baby card created by Ruth Norton. Her water coloring is also beautiful. Look at the two different cards to see the differences in the coloring.
An amazing thing about this card is the frame around the large circle. Ruth has used one of the Finishing Touches Edgelits (p. 190 #127010 $9.95) to create the punched designs and then she has pleated the paper strip along the underside edges of the circle. Isn't that a pretty idea?
For the background of the card, she has used the Fancy Fan Folder (p. 189 #127751 $7.95) with the Big Shot.
I think baby cards are some of the most fun cards to make. Its always such a happy occasion and the stamps are just so cute. "Cute" is not a favorite look of mine unless its for baby cards so that probably makes it extra fun! This Two by Two stamp with Noah's Ark is timeless, and, even though its one single stamp, just looking at these two cards demonstrates that there is no limit to the variety of looks you can get with it.
I think this stamp would also make cute thank you cards for a new mother's gift! Of course, you wouldn't make them this detailed, but wouldn't you love to get a set of thank you cards as a new mother? Thoughtful and creative at the same time!
Wouldn't this stamp, Two by Two, also make a great little "thinking of you" gift for a stamping friend who just announced she is pregnant?
So many ideas for one single stamp! If you enjoyed these Stampin' Up! Noah's Ark baby cards, Two by Two, be sure to opt in for my mailing list on the right hand side of this blog to receive additional fun ideas!
