Hello stampers and happy Friday to you. Baby Pull Toys is a fun and whimsical stamp set that is of course great for all baby cards. Do you remember the excitement when a little one finally starts walking? Soon after that they discover the fun of pull toys. Fisher-Price sure came up with a bunch of cute ones including the iconic telephone. My card was inspired by the Mini Catalog itself.
Baby Pull Toys Card
It wasn’t until I inked up this stamp set that I truly fell in love with it. The bold line images are just beautiful when you stamp and colour them. There is an elephant, a giraffe and a lion all riding on a pull toy. The sentiments are also adorable. Besides “it’s a boy” and “it’s a girl” there are “little baby, BIG LOVE”, “LOVE just got REAL” and “For the little one who TUGS on our heart strings”.
The twine on the front of this card is not merely decorative. When you pull the bow, the accordian fold pops open to reveal more cute pull toys.
A Few Measurements to Help
The thick basic white card base is standard 8 1/2″ by 5 1/2″ scored and folded at 4 1/4″. Next is the striped paper from Snail Mail which is 4″ by 5 1/4″. The Balmy Blue mat is 2 3/4″ square and the all important white accordion fold piece is 2 1/2″ by 7 1/2″ scored at 2 1/2″ and 5″. The animals were coloured with Blends. I used a dard Real Red blend to draw a “string” hooking the pull toys together to form a sort of train. The Balmy Blue hearts were made using the dies from Many Hearts dies.
I thought it would be a good idea to plan a fun event before I leave for Holland. It’s becoming a big of a tradition to do an online event when I am back home in quarantine. To overcome the logistics of having to get everything shipped in time, I thought I would switch up the way things are done. Rather than buying a ticket, you now only have to purchase anything online from me for a minimum of $40. I will mail you the extra bits to complete your cards. Make sure that you have the Assorted Memories & More cards and envelopes. You will need three of the large cards to craft along with me. This little step greatly saves me on shipping costs and lets me offer a fun event for a very low cost. Here is the video.
The date for this event in Friday May 27 at 7pm EST. You will get a virtual Bingo card and your Zoom link after you have placed your online order. Deadline to register is May 12.
Excitement is Building
Tomorrow morning is my COVID test, Sunday I drive to my parents for one last visit and then on Monday evening I fly to the Netherlands to be reunited with Gerard! Almost all of my stamping tasks are done, just waiting for the ribbon to finish my virtual coffee and a card kits and then I can relax! I have the cards ready for my YouTube live video tomorrow to show what I did with my Sand & Sea Parcel in the Post. Thanks so much for joining me today. Have a super day!
