Baby Pull Toys with Paper Piecing

I've been playing with the Baby Pull Toys stamp set.  You can find it on page 64 of the Jan-June Mini Catalog.  Here's my card for today.

I've probably mentioned it many times before, but we're expecting  a new granddaughter any day now.  I had little Hazel in mind when making my card.  I'm so excited!

I used a card base of Blushing Bride that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.

I covered the front of the card with the dots Blushing Bride paper in the Subtles 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  Cut it to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.

The Smoky Slate piece is from the Neutrals 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  It is cut to 2 1/2 x 3 1/2.

Stamp the elephant in Basic Gray.  Stamp her again on the dots paper and cut her out.  Cut right on the lines.  Glue on top of the stamped elephant.  Color the rest in the Smoky Slate combo of blends.   Cut this out with the 2nd largest circle in the Stitched Shapes dies.  Cut a coordinating scallop circle in Smoky Slate using the Layering Circles dies. 

Wrap the Blushing Bride twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo around the card twice.  Tape behind where the elephant will go.  Make a bow to add with a glue dot after adding the elephant with dimensionals.

Stamp the saying in Basic Gray and trim.  Add with dimensionals.

The hearts are punched with the Dog builder Punch from Blushing Bride paper from the Subtles pack.

Here's the inside of the card.  Stamp the saying in Basic Gray and add another elephant made just like the one on the front.

This is a good basic design that you could use with almost any stamp set.  When filling an entire card using a 12 x 12 sheet of designer paper you can only get 4 cards.  I like to fill a card when using a 6 x 6 paper.  I feel like I'm wasting less paper.  I do love the look when covering the entire card.

Here is a teaser for my March class to go.  There are 3 cards.  You can get this set of cards free with a $50 order using the Host Code F3AEYHQU.  You can also purchase the kits to make the three cards for $15 plus shipping.  Included is the card kits and a PDF emailed to you with links to videos for each card.  My Luv 2 Create team members will pay $10.  You will need the Springtime Joy stamp set or some set that you can substitute.  I cannot send stamped images.
