Birthday Owen and Clairabeth Puddle Jumper

This is my second post for today, click here to see Birthday Lily PJ.

I have a couple more Puddle Jumpers that I would like you to meet. Both Birthday Owen and Baby Clairabeth Puddle Jumper (designed by Lori Boyd) are part the new September release stamps at Die cuts R Us.

I had to think about my son for inspiration and I had to think back and picture what my son would have liked when he was younger. He liked plain boyish type cards with boyish colors and nothing fancy. I made a envelope card and only embellished the outside with brown ribbon and a button. The inside of the envelope is an invitation that features Birthday Owen, the sentiment which is included in the stamp set and a simple "bling" arrow.

Clairabeth Puddle Jumper designed by Lori Boyd is as cute as can be sitting with her pacifier in her mouth, she looks quite content don't you think?
Whenever I make a baby themed card, I tend to stick with a clean and simple layout. I embossed the base layer card stock with my numbers Cuttlebug folder and paper pierced the edges. The colors are soft and the embellishments are ribbon, Stickles and half back pearls.
All three of the September release Puddle Jumpers are made from deeply etched red rubber and are mounted on cling foam. All you have to do is trim your stamps and apply to an acrylic block. The new September release Puddle Jumpers can be found at .
