Stampin’ Up! Little Elephant Baby Card

Happy Friday!!

I sure hope you have a great weekend ahead with your loved ones!!!

My card today starts off with Night of Navy cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper and matted it on Petal Pink cardstock.

I took another pattern and this time matted it on Whisper White cardstock.  I used the Layering Squares Framelits and cut out a frame using Soft Sea Foam cardstock.

I then used the Little Elephant Bundle to  stamp the elephants in Night of Navy Ink on Whisper White cardstock and punched out the elephants.  I stamped the balloons and fussy cut them out.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy ink on Soft Sea Foam cardstock.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Sunday Stamps Challenge.

Stampin’ Up! Animal Outing – New Baby Card

I have a baby shower coming up so I decided to go ahead and make the card to go with the gift.

She’s expecting a baby girl which I wanted to reflect in the card…without it screaming pink everywhere.

Now I know, I know kangaroos aren’t pink, but I just couldn’t help myself 🙂

My card starts off with Petal Pink cardstock (although you can’t see it).  I then adhered a pattern from the Twinkle, Twinkle Designer Series Paper over the front.  Next I matted a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock on Silver Foil cardstock.

I wrapped around the front of the card a Silver and Petal Pink Baker’s Twine bow.  I used the Layering Circles Framelits to cut out a scalloped Petal Pink circle and then the Stitched Shapes Framelis to cut out a stitched Whisper White circle.  I adhered behind it a Silver Foil banner.

I stamped the kangaroo (and koala) in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock and colored them in using the Petal Pink and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut them out using the coordinating Animal Friends Thinlits.

I stamped the “Welcome” from the Animal Outing Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on Petal Pink cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I also stamped the “Little One” in Memento Black ink.  I also added a few rhinestones around everything to add a little bling.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Animal Outing – Welcome Baby – Handmade Sentiments #293

This week’s Handmade Sentiments Challenge is a color challenge.  I sure hope you’ll play along!

My card starts off with Pool Party cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Subltes Designer Series Paper and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and embossed it using the Simple Stripes embossing folder.  I matted this on Daffodil Delight cardstock and wound around a Silver/Pool Party Baker’s Twine bow and tucked some Silver Thread under the bow.

Next I stamped the rhino from the Animal Outing Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I colored him in using the Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Marker and used the Pool Party and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Markers to color in the bird.  I cut it out using the coordinating Animal Friends Thinlits.

I used the same thinlits to cut out some branches in Pool Party cardstock to tuck behind the rhino.  I stamped the “welcome” in Smoky Slate ink and “Little One” in Pool Party ink from the Animal Outing Stamp Set, fussy cut them out, and adhered them using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Friendly Expressions Congrats Baby Card

I Love – Love – Love the new Twinkle, Twinkle Designer Series Paper.  It coordinates with the Twinkle, Twinkle Suite from the Annual Catalog.

Of course this suite is designed with baby projects in mind, but this paper has so many possibilities beyond that.  I love the colors in the pattern I used for my card today.

I love stripes and the Soft Sea Foam, Petal Pink, Pool Party, and Night of Navy are so sweet together!!

I also thought I’d try my hand at a simple fancy fold – It’s kind of like an inverted match box.

I started off with Pool Party cardstock.  I then matted a pattern from the Twinkle Twinkle DSP on Whisper White cardstock.

I then stamped the sentiment from the new Friendly Expressions Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Night of Night cardstock.  I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.

I cut out a Petal Pink heart using the Sunshine Wishes Framelits Dies, making sure only to adhere the top part of the heart down and not the bottom.  I wrapped around a Medium Night of Navy Baker’s Twine bow to hold the card shut.

The inside sentiment was stamped in Night of Navy ink and comes from the Special Celebrations stamp set.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! New Baby Welcome Card

So far this week I’ve mailed out 3 cards to expecting mamas.

It’s so exciting to know a new little one is on the way.

My card today starts off with Very Vanilla cardstock.  I took a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock, embossed it using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder, and matted it on Blushing Bride cardstock.

Next I cut out two patterns from the Bundle of Love Designer Series Paper.  I cut the ends in banners and adhered them to the card.

I cut the heart using the Sunshine Wishes Framelits Dies and Gold Foil paper.  I tied a Soft Sky ribbon to the one side.

The sentiment is from Special Celebrations Stamp Set which I stamped in Versamark ink, sprinkled with Gold Embossing Powder, and heat set with the Heat Tool.  I cut it out with the Bunch of Banners Framelits dies and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Fabulous Flamingo Baby Card

Happy Monday!

My card today is a sweet baby card.  I don’t make a ton of baby cards, but I do love the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set from the Annual Catalog for baby girl cards.

My card starts off with Pink Pirouette cardstock which I embossed using the Seaside Embossing Folder.  I then did a bit of layering with Whisper White on Pink Pirouette on Basic Black.  On the Whisper White I stamped the flamingo from the Fabulous Flamingo Stamp Set using Memento Black and Pink Pirouette inks (stamping off for the lighter shade).

I wrapped around some White Organza Ribbon into a bow around the cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink on Pink Pirouette cardstock and snuck behind it a piece of doily.  To finish it off, I added a few Pink Pirouette enamel shapes.

Enjoy!

Today’s card was inspired by challenges this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments and Freshly Made Sketches.

Stampin’ Up! Moon Baby Card

I am in love and obsessed with the Stampin Blends.

Over the weekend I prepped this week’s blog post cards and realized I used Stampin Blends in some form or another in 3 out of the 5 cards this week!!

I find the blends so easy to use and very newbie friendly.  I’m especially excited about Thursday’s card, so be sure to come back to check it out!!

I start off with Pool Party cardstock today which I layered with a pattern from the Myths & Magic DSP.  I then took a small panel of Pool Party cardstock and layered it with pieces of Whisper White cardstock cut out as clouds using the Rainbow Builder Framelits Dies.  I adhered a few layers using Stampin Dimensionals.

Next I stamped the moon from the Moon Baby Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I colored this in using Daffodil Delight, Pink Pirouette, Crumb Cake, and Ivory Stampin Blend Markers.  I fussy cut it out and adhered it using Stampin Dimensionals.

I stamped the outside sentiment from the Moon Baby Stamp Set in Memento Black ink, trimmed it down, and adhered it to the card front using Stampin Dimensionals. I stamped the inside sentiment using Memento Black ink and stamped a bunch of stars around it and on the bottom of the card in Daffodil Delight ink.

Enjoy!

Today’s card was based on this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

Stampin’ Up! We Must Celebrate Baby Card

Punches…

I feel like sometimes they don’t get the love they deserve.  They may not be able to cut out the intricate dies like the Big Shot can, but a punch is so simple to use and can in an instant cut something out.

I pulled out not 1, not 2, but 3 punches for today’s card.

Mr. Bunny makes this card so cute and perfect for a new baby.  He comes from the We Must Celebrate Stamp Set.

This card was my featured Facebook Live Tutorial this past Wednesday night.  Swing by and join me at 7:30 pm EST as I give a live tutorial on a different card each week.  If you watch live and leave a comment, I’ll draw a name at the end for someone to receive that night’s card!

Stampin’ Up! Baby Moon

I’ve been creating mostly Autumn and Christmas cards lately.

I thought I would take a break today.

I have a few friends expecting so I thought it was time to make a baby card.

My card today starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I took the cloud sheet from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks and spread embossing paste over it.  I took a banner of Blushing Bride cardstock and using the same cloud mask sponged Craft White ink over it.

I stamped the baby from the Moon Baby stamp set in Archival Black ink on Shimmery White cardstock.  I colored her in using a Blender pen and Blushing Bride and Daffodil Delight (umbrella) ink.  I actually used the new Ivory Stampin Blend marker to color in her face and the Light Crumb Cake marker for her hair.  I then fussy cut her out.

I stamped the sentiment in Blushing Bride ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the stars around it, stamping off for a lighter shade.  I matted this on Blushing Bride cardstock and adhered the baby over it.

Enjoy!

Today’s card was inspired by this weeks The Paper Players challenge.
