Saturday Sample-You’re Amazing Stamp Set

For today's Saturday Sample, I'm sharing the birthday card I created for my granddaughter Leyla featuring You're Amazing stamp set.  It's the second birthday card I've made for family members in as many months.  My family are amazing, so the You're Amazing stamp set is pretty perfect for them!

Leyla's 2012 bday card-001
Leyla does not like "frilly, girly" stuff.  She likes more tailored and even plain things, and her favorite color is orange.  I love the way you can factor in all a person's likes/dislikes when creating handmade cards for them.  I love customization!  And making your own handmade cards with Stampin' Up! rubber stamps helps make that happen in a big way:)

This handmade card could actually be used as a masculine card or a feminine card since it's really gender neutral.  There is a little sparkle on the elephant's party hat, but everything else is tailored and understated.  Birthday parties are times for sparkle and shine, so I thought my little elephant could have a bit of bling, albeit understated bling, to make him festive:)  This card was actually made in under 10 minutes.  As per usual, I was rushing at the last minute.  I'm trying to get my handmade cards and birthday gifts prepared ahead of time instead of the last minute.  My daugther Tiffany ( is a major inspiration in that goal.  I figure if she can do it with a 1 year old and 2 year old underfoot, I should be able to!
