Happy New Year to all of you! Not only do we have a new year, but beginning tomorrow, January 5, 2021, we have so many new Stampin’ Up! things to get excited about! And the first, most exciting new thing is the NEW MINI STAMPIN’ CUT & EMBOSS MACHINE! Oh my goodness is it small and sooooo cute! Elie even loves it!
Did I say Mini? Yes, it’s small but mighty. It actually cuts a majority of the dies that I use! I keep it right next to me on my crafting desk and when I need it, it’s right there!
This cute machine has a compact footprint for easy storage and travel. The 3-1/2″ (8.9 cm) platform works with many of Stampin’ Up!’s smaller dies and smaller embossing folders. It includes 1 Mini Base Plate (Plate 1), 2 Mini Cutting Plates (Plate 2), 1 Mini Embossing Plate (Plate 3), and 1 Mini 3D Embossing Plate (Plate 4).
Here’s a fun video showing you how cute it is!

Lots of babies are being born lately, and I’m right there with happy baby cards! And, Stampin’ Up! has everything I need to make my cards. In fact, this Little Elephant set is currently my only baby stamp set, but it’s so versatile that I can make a different card for each baby!
For today’s card I’ve used three stamps from the set, but I didn’t use an elephant 🙂 The stamps in this set are so cute. In addition to two elephants, one big and one small, there is a “thank you” heart, a bunch of balloons, a grouping of hearts, an umbrella, two tulips, and a darling tiny bird, plus seven sentiments!!
The lower front of the card was cut with a wavy edge die from the Magnolia Memory Dies. Underneath the wavy edge is a strip of Whisper White card stock stamped with the little hearts! Isn’t that cute?
Gingham adds to the sweetness of this card. It just says “baby” to me. This piece of gingham is from the Subtles 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper. The Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon adds to the delicate feel of this baby card.
I love to hear your comments! Please let me know what you think of today’s card 🙂
Oh my goodness, I got to make a little baby girl card!! I always get so excited when I can make a baby card, and especially a GIRL baby card. Pink is my favorite color, so this really makes me happy!
My favorite stamp set for baby cards is the Little Elephant set and I love the coordinating Elephant Builder Punch. For this card I started with a Whisper White card base 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4.” A 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Blushing Bride card stock was dry embossed with the Country Floral Embossing Folder. An 18″ piece of Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon was tied around the embossed piece and finished off with a bow, about 2/3rds of the way down. Then the piece was adhered to the card front with Multipurpose Glue.
The larger elephant stamp was stamped on a scrap of Whisper White card stock using Melon Mambo ink, and punched out with the Elephant Builder Punch. The white ear of the elephant was punched with the same punch from another scrap of Whisper White card stock.
The ear was adhered with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional. Using the Layering Circles Dies, two scalloped circles were cut, the larger one from Melon Mambo card stock and the smaller one from Whisper White card stock. They were adhered together with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then the elephant was adhered onto the Whisper White scalloped circle with a Stampin’ Dimensional.
The balloon stamp from the set was stamped on Whisper White card stock using Melon Mambo ink and fussy cut with Paper Snips. The balloons were adhered to the Whisper White scalloped circle with a bit of Multipurpose Glue. The sentiment was stamped on a piece of Whisper White card stock with Melon Mambo ink and punched out using the 1″ Circle Punch. It was then tucked in between the two scalloped circles and adhered to the Melon Mambo circle with Multipurpose Glue. Some Melon Mambo rhinestones from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones were added for some bling!! 🙂
I keep this stamp set handy for all my baby cards. It’s so adorable and gives lots of options for a variety of cards. If you don’t have a cute baby stamp set, this is the one for you! Pointer: for a baby boy, Night of Navy and Daffodil Delight inks and card stock are a real winner!!
It’s so much fun to celebrate a new baby, I love it! And my favorite stamp set to use for a baby card is Little Elephant.This is such a sweet set with a coordinating punch!
The colors here are Pineapple Punch, Petal Pink, and White. I just love this combination. Here I’ve used the Stitched Rectangle Dies, the Starburst Punch, and the Elephant Builder Punch. This punch cuts out not only the elephant, but his cute little ears!!
When you need to make a baby card, the Little Elephant Cling Stamp Set is perfect! It’s SO adorable! I mean, look at this elephant…isn’t he too cute?
For this card I used a piece of Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper on top of the card base. This Balmy Blue striped pattern is just right for a little boy baby 🙂 And one of the In Colors, Blueberry Bushel, looks so nice with it.
One thing I really like about this stamp set is that it has a coordinating Elephant Builder Punch. Do you see the elephant’s ear? It was punched from Balmy Blue card stock using the punch and then attached to the elephant with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.
This stamp set has a stamp with three fun balloons. Here I’ve stamped them in Real Red ink on a piece of Whisper White card stock and then punched it out using the Starburst Punch.
A stitched heart frame was cut out using the Be Mine dies and then placed over the balloon piece. A piece of Blueberry Bushel Grosgrain ribbon was tied around the designer series paper, over the point of the heart piece. Then the elephant was attached over the ribbon with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.
The sweet sentiment was stamped on a piece of Blueberry Bushel card stock using Versamark Ink and then embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. It was punched on it’s side using the Timeless Label Punch. After you punch, cut off the other half and attach the sentiment to the card like a little banner!

This little koala baby in the kangaroo pouch is too adorable! I’ve used this stamp before and just smile at the cuteness!
The Subtles 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper in Balmy Blue is just perfect for a baby boy. The stripes and dots go together so well and play off one another. They make a great background for the kangaroo.
The kangaroo and koala were colored with Stampin’ Blends. I love the “Blends” ~ you can get such depth with the light and dark shades of each color! I used the Light Crumb Cake for most of the kangaroo, and a bit of the Dark Crumb Cake for the noses and ears. The kangaroo’s pouch is colored with a bit of Ivory and Bronze.
The sentiments were stamped on a piece of scrap Whisper White and snipped close with Paper Snips. The Iridescent Sequins give a bit of whimsey to the card 🙂
