Animal Talk Birthday, PP163, DD#70

WOOHOO!  This is your lucky day.  I'm posting TWICE today.   
Make sure you check out the other card I posted today HERE.  It is totally different!

What could be more Fun and Simple than a FLIP card for a child's birthday?

Animal Talk is a great stamp set.......below you'll see how I got some extra mileage out of it.

Here is where my inspiration came from.  The paper players had a KID challenge...

and I used the colors from the Dynamic Duo's Challenge.

There really is no guesswork when you use Stampin' Up! 's new Thinlit Card Dies.
Super Simple!
Everything is cut and scored for you and you know the kids will LOVE the movement of the card.

View THIS POST for an example of an adult birthday flip card I did.

These are the stamps in the Animal Talk Stamp Set

You will notice I combined 2 phrases to make one that I wanted.

Lined them up on the acrylic block......

 Used my marker and colored in only the portion I wanted to show up!
The phrase I wanted.
  • Make sure your stamp is totally clean and dry before you use your marker on the words you want.
  • I use the brush tip for the best coverage.
  • TEST an image or two so make sure you have your stamps lined up properly.
  • You can use the fine tip of the marker to fill in any areas you didn't get a good stamped image

Did you figure out where the YOU'RE came from?? 
I markered (is that a word??) it right off another sentiment in the set.

The numbers  are from the Morning Post Numbers  (c 131841)  out of the Holiday Catalog
