The baby, kids & teens handmade cards category is super fun! The style ranges from soft and pretty pastels to bold bright colors and geometric shapes! In addition to the obvious, all baby shower, expecting moms, and age appropriate birthday cards are found here. Since there are quite a few Stampin’Up! stamp sets and co-ordinating framelits that make creating these cards super easy! Because teddy bears, dinosaurs, cats and dogs are all part of the Stampin’Up! selection, finding the perfect creative element is simple. There are also a lot of Designer Series Paper options that pair well with this category.
Here’s my Stampin’Up! A Little Wild card & video. I had so much fun with this cute little expecting baby card! Even my little furry companion had to make an appearance! I left the blooper in the video for laughs, since it happens to be a common occurrence!
Start with an A2 cardstock base in Bermuda Bay. Cut at 11″ x 4.25″. Score and fold in half at 5.5″. The whisper white cardstock layer is 5.25″ x 4″ and this layer is embossed with the layered leaves folder. I absolutely LOVE the 3D Dynamic impressions embossing folders!!
Use the Bloomin Heart thinlet die to create the heart background in smokey slate cardstock. And cut the flowers and tiny laurel pieces out of the bermuda bay cardstock. Attach with the Tombow liquid glue.
Stamp and die cut the baby elephant from the “A Little Wild” bundle. I cut the tag top off and stamped a sentiment on the inside, just tucking the edge under a flower to stay closed. Stamp the congratulations sentiment, add the ribbon, and remember to make your envelope pretty!

This super fun Stampin’Up! Colorful Tee Birthday girl card is so simple to make! A perfect card for a pre-teen daughter like mine 🙂
I had several tags made up from a previous project so I used them up ( this style is no longer available) however, I listed the currently available tag topper here! Its super cute!

I loved making this fun Stampin’Up! Birthday Girl Tie Dyed card! It was so outside my normal style zone, but I knew it would be perfect for my daughter or one of her friends!
The stamp set uses a wonderful 3 step technique, however lining up the images using the photopolymer stamps is super easy and the layered colors are amazing!
First, I started with a standard card base in Daffodil Delight cardstock and cut the second layer of Whisper White cardstock at 5.25″ x 4″. Stamp the Tie Dyed images on the white and then attach to base. Stamp a T shirt and the Tie dyed hearts onto a piece of white and cut using the T- shirt builder framelits. Pop up over the black accent. Remember to make your envelope pretty!
