SUO challenges - Kids and Babies!!

Hello and Welcome to our super fun challenge for SUO Challenges.

Our challenges are all about using Stampin' Up! Only products - just to inspire you with the amazing versatility!!  

Our challenge this fortnight is all about Kids and Babies!

This is a super cute card that I've made before, but I wanted to use the new stamp set Little Elephant to create it again!!

Little Elephant Clear-Mount Bundle

It has an awesome punch that works an absolute treat with it!!  And when you purchase these as a bundle, you get a 10% discount!!

Originally, my inspiration for this card came from Bronwyn Eastley at addINKtive designs  She has some pretty amazing and inspirational ideas and tutorials.

I've done this card in three different colours ways - Blushing Bride, Balmy Blue and Soft Sea Foam.  These will be for sale at my market stall in a couple of weeks time!!  

I've used Little Elephant, and also Thoughtful Banners for my stamp sets.  I've created a little banner above the head of the cot for the name of the little baby who receives the card!  

The cot is created using the scallop tag topper punch and the darling label punch for the ends of the cot, and then the body of the cot is just a hollow box stamped with the stripe from Thoughtful Banners.  

The card folds flat for easy mailing too!!  

Here are all my little cots waiting to be stuck into their z fold cards!!  The measurements for the box part of the cot is 4cm x 29.7cm scored at 5cm, 14cm, 19cm, 28cm. 
 The ends of the cot are each 3" x 2" and punched at the top and bottom to give detail.  
The card base is 29.5cm x 10.5cm and scored at 14.5cm and 22cm. 

Imperial measurements are not my strength, but they could be - card base 11 5/8" x 4 1/8" scored at 5 3/4" and 8 5/8". White cot piece would be 11 3/4" x 1 5/8" scored at 2", 5 1/2", 7 1/2" and 11".

I hope you're inspired to join in the fun with us at SUO Challenges!!  Just head to our blog to see the other awesome projects from the rest of the design team, and add your contribution to the lineup!!

Until Next Time,
Happy Stamping,
Love Julia    x

  2. absolutelty adorable any chance you have nonmetric measurements

    1. Hi Marge - I would just convert them to imperial, but I'm not 100% accurate. So, it could be: card base 11 5/8" x 4 1/8" scored at 5 3/4" and 8 5/8". White cot piece would be 11 3/4" x 1 5/8" scored at 2", 5 1/2", 7 1/2" and 11". I hope this works for you!!

    2. My pleasure Marge. Good luck!
