Stampin' Up Happier Than Happy Welcome Baby Card for The Happy Inkin' Thurday Blog Hop

Happy Friday Eve and welcome back to another week with the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop!  This week we were given a theme challenge: Critters or Bugs and let's face it there are so many options to choose from.... I can not wait to see what everyone created.  I decided to pull out Stampin' Up Happier Than Happy Stamp Set to create a cute Hello, Baby card.

I started with a panel of Stampin' Up Happy Forest Friends DSP that I adhered a smaller strip to with liquid adhesive.  I adhered the layers to a Mossy Meadow mat.

I stamped the bear with Soft Suede ink on a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock.  I stamped the owl with Cajun Craze ink on Basic White.  I stamped the sentiment on Basic White using Mossy Meadow.  

I die cut each stamped image and sentiment with Stampin' Up Happy Forest Dies.  I also die cut a piece of Old Olive, Mossy Meadow, Soft Suede and Crumb Cake card stock to create the tree stump with leaves around it.

I adhered all the die cuts to the card front with a mixture of liquid adhesive and Stampin' Dimensionals.

I finished the front off with Stampin' Up Rustic Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots  before adhering the card front to a Poppy Parade card base.

The inside is a panel of  Basic White with the sentiment stamped with Mossy Meadow ink.  I adhered another strip of DSP to the bottom before adhering it to the card base.

Thanks so much for hopping by!  Up next is Terry Lynn.
