Bonanza Buddies Birthday

I have to say, my taste in stamp sets has certainly changed since I got grandchildren.  Some of them are old enough to send cards to and none of them would want a flowered card.  I had to broaden my horizons and start looking at stamp sets that children and young at heart adults would like even if I did not.  This was not the case with the Birthday Bonanza Suite.  I loved that little Toucan the minute I saw him.  Maybe it is because I went to the rain forest in Costa Rica and saw a real Toucan.  The rain forest was beautiful and so was all the wildlife we saw.

To make this card I first stamped the Toucan in Memento Black Ink and the Koala in Smoky Slate.  I have a great hint when you need to stamp a good solid image:  use your Stamparatus. That way, you can stamp it multiple times in the same position to get good coverage.  There is not a splotch of white to be seen on my images.  I colored the Toucan’s beak using Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody Stampin’ Write Markers.  Then I cut out both figures using the matching Bonanza Dies (you can save 10% by purchasing the stamp set and dies in a Bundle). I cut out the pennants and balloons and stamped the boxes also in Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody and then layered everything together.

Happy Birthday, Sam.  I hope you have a terrific day!

  1. This is so sweet Susan. I love the whimsy you’ve created with the images. I agree that having a new audience of little ones changes your shopping approach
