Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Paired We Welcome You!

Well – guess what day IT IS?!?!


Also – there are only 5 days left to earn Double Peppermint Points and free Sale-A-Bration goodies.

That is all.

Well – and a card!

I made a baby card.  I don’t NEED a baby card right now – but…I LOVE this Perfectly Paired stamp set and finally got it pulled off the shelf to use!  Take a look-see:

Seriously!??  How cute is that Ark full-a animals?

I colored almost the entire image with Stampin’ Blends – which was perfect for this week’s TGIF Challenge!

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock and, using my Stamparatus, I stamped the large Perfectly Paired image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

When the image was good and dry, I started coloring!  I used Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends in Soft Suede (the Ark), Smoky Slate (hephulumps), Granny Apple Green (croc-a-gators), Flirty Flamingo (duh?), Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie (Musafa and his wife), Daffodil Delight and Bronze (giraffagalumpagus’s), Smoky Slate (koalas), Crumb Cake (for the gnu’s – I’m pretty sure those are gnu’s, you gknow?), Daffodil and Flirty for the birds, Basic Black for the flag pole and Bermuda Bay for the fishes!

Whew!!  Didja get all that??!

Here’s the bottom line – color your animals however makes you happy!! 😉

I added Light and Dark Pool Party for the flood-waters, then I stamped some Balmy Blue clouds and colored them with the Light and Dark Balmy Blue Blends!  Then I matted the panel on Granny Apple Green card stock.

Again using my Stamparatus, I stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black on a strip of Whisper White.  Then I snipped a banner end – and edged the whole thing with my Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Write Marker.

I popped the sentiment onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front was done!


On the inside, I added a second Perfectly Paired sentiment in Tuxedo Black to a Whisper White panel, then I stamped two of the fish nearby.  I colored those – one in Granny Apple Green and one in Bermuda Bay – with more of my Blends.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Granny Apple Green mat and into my Balmy Blue card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a whole school of fish on the front…

…and some Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP in Balmy Blue on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This Perfectly Paired stamp set is fairly….perfect!…for a welcome to the world for a new tiny human.  It’s also seriously fun to color with our awesome Stampin’ Blends!

Wait.  You do NOT have all the colors?!?  Well…might I most humbly suggest that NOW would be the perfectly perfect time for you to get them ALL!!  You can earn free Sale-A-Bration goodies AND Double Peppermints with a $50 order – as long as you git ‘er done by the 31st!

  1. Holy Schmoley…that’s a lot of perfect blending! Cute card.

  2. That is way too cute! Perfect colors for every critter on the ark. Great design too! 🙂

  3. Adorable card. Now do one with a pink card base and you will be ready for whatever arrives! Actually, I think the gnus are really zebras, but who cares? Your coloring is superb and the card is wonderful.
