A Birthday Roo!

 This week has gone so fast! I had lots of time the first part of the week to create, before we started having the Grandchildren before and after school. I worked on cards for a class and "jumped" at the chance to take part in another blog hop with Crafty Collaborations. What a privilege  to join with Stampin' Up! demonstrators around the world!  No more delays...let's "hop" to it!

  We were given great leeway with this share a project, any project!  Believe it or not, that was a challenge in itself!  I needed some guidance. But it didn't take too much thinking to realize I wanted to use Kangaroo & Co from the Jan-June Mini Catalog! And  Oh So Ombre DSP that I got free from Sale-A-Bration makes this set hop off the card into your heart! 

     I began with a base card of Blackberry Bliss cut at 8 1/2" x 11". I scored it at 2 1/8" and at 4 1/4", on the long side. Be sure to burnish the folds very crisply. A piece of the DSP cut at 1 7/8" x 5 1/4" was glued to the front flap and the inside piece measures 4" x 5 1/4". 
   I stamped Momma & Baby Roo and colored them with Stampin' Blends. I fussy cut them both, even though I do have the dies that come with this set The white border was a little too distracting on the dark background.   The diamonds were cut 1 1/4" square. Stamping and coloring on the bottom and top blocks left nothing to do but glue it together.  Little Roo was pop upped using dimensionals. The Happy Birthday sentiment came from the A Grand Kid set also in the current mini catalog. 
    I love the way our many color products work together. And I love that Stampin' Up! has given us the opportunity to share it with you all.   Be sure to grab some free SAB is the last day!
 I hope you enjoyed my card and the rest of the projects these talented Demos have made for you. 



I love to hear from you! Please leave a comment.
