Using Leftovers

My daughter is always in need of baby cards, so I decided to whip up a few. In my box containing the Animal Stories stamp set, I found three stamped and assembled giraffe images that were leftover from card swaps I made for the Syracuse Regional that wasn't (snow storm last February). I decided take the easy route and incorporate those pieces in my designs.

It's difficult to see, but I used the tiny dotted side of a sheet of Pear Pizzazz designer paper for the background of the first two cards. For the second card, I paired it with the texture embossed solid Pear Pizzazz card stock. I thought the Pear Pizzazz nicely complemented the Pumpkin Pie giraffe.

The three words, "sweet", "little", and "one" are individual stamps in the Fundamental Phrases stamp set. To align the words more easily, I put all three clear-mount stamps on one acrylic block.
For the final card, I decided to use a different designer series paper and love the way it turned out!
