Wild About You Baby Gift Set

I just love the Wild About You stamp set! It is retiring today! So if you do not have it yet! Go to my Stampin' Up website and order it! It is so versatile! What I am showing you today is the baby gift my sister-in-law Gaylyn and I made for a very close friend of ours! The new baby's theme was jungle and the mommy wanted bright colors. We had so much fun making these items! We wanted to keep the up with the consistency so we used all the same colors for each of our projects. The inks we used were both craft and classic ink pads and markers depending on the project. The colors we used were summer sun, pumpkin pie, glorious green, real red, perfect plum, close to cocoa, chocolate chip, old olive, garden green, certainly celery, baja breeze, and pacific point. The stamps sets that we mainly used were Wild About You and Season of Friendship.


First up is the clock! I made this from a clock that I bought at Wal-Mart. I used made my own face out of whisper white card stock. I stamped the animals and leaves in various colors with my stamp-a-ma-jig. I then made the numbers with retired set called Doodle Numbers. I punched them out with the 1 3/8 circle punch. I then punched out real red cs with the 1 3/4 circle punch and layered the two.

This is a handy little bag I embellish that I got from Wal-Mart. The picture in the front doubles as a pocket too! I stamped the images with craft ink onto muslin fabric. I then sewed the trim on and then sewed the pocket to the bag. I also used a fabric marker to outline the images to make them pop a little bit more.

For this side of the bag I used chocolate chip craft ink and the retired alphabet set called Headline Alphabet. I used the stamp-a-ma-jig to get the letters in the right place. I also used the leaves from a Season of Friendship.

I had a lot of fun making this tray that I bought at Michael's. First I painted it white with acrylic paint. I had to do several coats. I stamped all of the images and sponged on the grass. I used the retired set, Headline Alphabet, again. The sun was a circle that I cut out. I am not sure where this paper came from? We, I say we but my husband did it, then sprayed on a sealant to protect the tray. I also tried on real red grosgrain, baja breeze striped ribbon, and orange ribbon from Michael's to the handles.

The rest of the gift items were made by my sister-in-law Gaylyn! I just love what she came up with!!!

For this write-on board, she used a picture frame. She stamped the images and added the sun (just like the sun from the tray) to a sheet of whisper white card stock. She layered that on to baja breeze designer series paper. She then tied a piece of baja breeze striped ribbon to the frame, placed the glass back in, then the picture, and then the backing of the frame. She then took a white board marker and wrote on the glass. What a fantastic idea!! Loving it!

This is a door hanger that she made out of two pieces of chipboard. One piece is the backing and the other is the frame. She made the frame by using the top note die. Between the two layers is the picture she stamped. She then added the jumbo eyelets with the crop-a-dile to each side of the top. She added the orange ribbon from Micheal's.

These are the two lovely little onesies that she stamped on! The first one she stamped with craft ink and then used a fabric puff pen in brown to outline it. She added leaves to the sleeves.

This is the other little one she made using the same techniques. She also lined this one with a fabric marker to make the image pop! She also added a button for the ear! How adorable right!Don't you just love the back with all the different color birdies!

Our friend loved the gifts! She was so excited!

Thanks for stopping by and reading this incredibly long post and I wish you a very creative day!!!
