TBT – Wild Wonders

I bet I’m like a lot of you…partial paper packs that are long retired and stamp sets you love too much to part with, because you just MIGHT need them.  Well, I’ve decided that these things need to go…after all, I don’t think my Wrangler Wearing Sweetheart is going to put an addition on the Craft Coop anytime soon.  Oh no, I’m not going to part with them…I’m going to use them!

Welcome to my Throwback Thursday!  Each Thursday I’m going to feature a card using retired product in a new way.

I’m starting with the Babycakes Paper & Wild Wonders stamp set…this paper was a favorite in it’s non-traditional baby colors and because it paired so well with Kraft Cardstock.  Using a cut from the Cricut Artbooking cartridge (giraffe) in Chocolate (also retired) and Canary brought the whimsy of this card to life.  A tag tucked in exclaiming “it’s about to get wild around here” is a good warning to parents expecting a new baby boy!

Do you have some of this paper in your stash?  I’d love to see you pull it out and make something new.  Leave me a comment with the link to your post using either Baby Cakes Paper or the Wild Wonders stamp set and I’ll come take a peek.

If you enjoy this new TBT feature and would like to see a particular paper or stamp set used for inspiration leave me a comment too!

Thanks for stopping by…I hope this will help you bust your stash too!

 

 

 

 

Wild Wonders

I have a baby shower to go to tomorrow and thought I better make a cute card to go on my package!  I LOVE the Wild Wonders set, not only for the cuteness of the animals but because they are Cricut compatible with the Artbooking cartridge from Close to My Heart.

Do you recognize this paper packet?  It’s been retired for a long time and I even found almost all the Stickease in the package too!

I loved the idea of a speech bubble for the hippo on the inside of the card.  Our friend is a single daddy and although he is super excited, I think it’s going to be a lot different now that baby is home from the hospital!
