CASE-ing The Catty #5 Baby

Oh, who doesn't love a new baby? I love to make things for babies, and I'm sure you do as well.

We had a new addition to our family in May and I was asked to make some wall art for his room. Of course, I had to pull out my stamps and Zoo Babies was the ideal stamp set, as these new parents are "Friends of the Zoo" and have also travelled to Borneo to see Orangutans and other animals in their natural environment.
I have shared these before, but I thought I would again, just to demonstrate what you can do with your stamp sets. These are just two of the three, before they were placed in the frames.

Stampin' Up! make a Coaster Board, which is thinner than chipboard, but sturdier than card, so I used it to die cut numbers for the pictures, and sponged colour onto them. The animals are also stamped onto Coaster Board and handcut. I used a variety of different Stampin' Up! stamps to put together the 'scenery'.

Now, onto my CASE of the Catty for this challenge.

I decided the card on page 78 was perfect, but I would give Zoo Babies a rest this time. However, I did use the Lullaby Designer Series Paper and the same layout.
The stamp set is Baby We've Grown, it was first seen in the Occasions Catalogue and it was good to see it appear in the annual catalogue too. I have used this soft bunny for many cards. The outline lends itself to a little water colouring, which softens the appearance even more.

Next, I got so excited by this simple little design, I almost began a production line!!!

I continued with the Lullaby DSP and used Something For Baby, for the stamped and/or die cut images. Something To Say has the two-part sentiment ' a little something cute.... for your cute little someone!'  
I could have kept on and on (except I probably have more than enough baby cards now). Naturally, there is no reason why you can't change things up again, and make birthday cards, or wedding or even sympathy cards.

What are you going to share with us this week at CASE-ing The Catty?

I do hope you enjoy my post, and get inspired to CASE the Catty too!
