The theme is the same as the contest: BABY!  This worked out well as we just happened to have friends who had a baby on June 23rd. So I decided to make them a special personalized gift to treasure their new arrival. (Note: the photos of baby Will were not taken by me). I wanted it to share the theme of the card so I kept the colors and images the same and just built my layout from there.

I was extremely happy with how well the Letters For You Alphabet Stamps and Coordinating Large Letters Framelits fit onto my page.  I didn’t measure, I just grabbed the frame I liked and everything just happened to fall into place. William Keith worked well since they could share the ‘I’ and they couldn’t have fit the space more perfectly.

The Labeler Alphabet did the trick to add the details of Birth Date, Weight and Length.  I hand cut each statement after stamping it (Soft Suede Classic Ink), as I didn’t want them to be perfect, I wanted more of a newspaper clipped feel.   All Items were adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added three rows of Linen Thread to my layout, along with a bow.  1. To Match the Card 2. To Cover My Seam of the Whisper White Thick Cardstock as the background.  The frame opening is 10.5 in x 13.5 in and was purchased from Walmart.

The coordinating Number of Years Stamp Set and Large Number Framelits were perfect to use to show off the weight of 9 lbs. The little flag is also from the same set and I stamped the LBS with the Labeler Alphabets.  All sentiments, letters and numbers were stamped in Soft Suede Classic Ink.

All the animals and bees were stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink on Shimmery White Cardstock.  They were then colored with the following Classic Inks and an Aqua Painter:

  • Elephant:  Smoky Slate and Pink Pirouette
  • Bear: Soft Suede
  • Hive, Bees and Lion: Crushed Curry and Soft Suede

The animals were cropped out with their coordinating dies and the Big Shot using the Magnetic Platform to hold them in place.

So it’s that time of month again where Kylie Bertucci gathers Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the globe to highlight their work and blog!  I was really excited for this month’s theme: BABY!  A Little Wild Bundle is another one of my top picks from the 2017-2018 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog! The little animals are so stinkin’ cute, I couldn’t resist!

Kylie Bertucci’s, Austrailia’s Number One Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator enables viewers to cast their vote (up to 5 cards) on their favorite card in the line-up! The top 10 picks get to take part in a blog hop with Kylie! What an honor, huh?  I was blessed last month with obtaining enough votes to make number 7 and participated in the Masculine Themed Hop. I am hoping that I can have a similar outcome this month.  Anything I can do to help me launch my business and get my name out there, right?  If you have the time, please check out all the wonderful submissions and vote for your favorites!  If one of those favorites, happens to be me, thank you!  I am humbled that someone would chose one of my creations out of all the amazing talent out there!

I love BABY themed cards because they are so cute and fun to make…and it reminds me of the day when my boys were babies and they had a room decorated in a Safari theme, similar to the animals used on this card.  A Little Wild Bundle is so versatile.  You can use it in card making as I did above or you can use it to create gift tags as shown in the product image below.  Everyone needs a quick tag to attach to a gift for a new someone and this A Little Wild Bundle is perfect to help you obtain quick and easy when paired with the Big Shot!

I am usually privy to using Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Paper when I want to create the watercolor look.  Today I decided to grab the Shimmery White Cardstock (also recommended for watercolor techniques) and I was pleasantly surprised at how EASY it was to add color and shading to the image with a little Classic Ink and an Aqua Painter.  I will be using Shimmery White Cardstock on more projects to come as I am extremely happy with the results.

Card Details:

  • The card base is a piece of Whisper White 12 x 12 Cardstock.  Cut in half and scored/folded at 6 inches to create a 6×6 square card.
  • All the animals and bees were stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink on Shimmery White Cardstock.  They were then colored with the following Classic Inks and an Aqua Painter:
    • Elephant:  Smoky Slate and Pink Pirouette
    • Bear: Soft Suede
    • Hive, Bees and Lion: Crushed Curry and Soft Suede
  • The animals were cropped out with their coordinating dies and the Big Shot using the Magnetic Platform to hold them in place.
  • All letters were stamped in Soft Suede Classic Ink.  The WELCOME is from the Labeler Alphabet and snipped out with the Paper Snips. The BABY is from the Letters for You Stamp Set and it’s coordinating Large Letters Framelits Dies for easy cropping with the Big Shot.
  • Most of the card details were adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals or the New Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals (a gotta have adhesive).  If I didn’t feel the image needed a pop, I used Snail Adhesive.
  • A loop of Linen Thread along with a three string bow were added to finish off the card.

Fabulous Flamingo for GDP Sketch Challenge 090

Fabulous Flamingo for GDP Sketch Challenge 090

When I saw this sketch challenge over at Global Design Project, I immediately thought of the Fabulous Flamingo Stamp Set and how I could use it to compliment this design!  #GDP090

I am pretty happy with the results because I was able to incorporate a lot of new product into the card. Although you can’t see a lot of it, the Shimmer Ribbon in Pear Pizzazz is DIVINE!  The entire Shimmer Ribbon line may be my favorite, but it’s hard to say because I haven’t even used 1/16 of my newly arrived ribbon supply!

The color combination is very similar to last weeks GDP Color Challenge.  This time I coordinated with the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper (my top pick for DSP in the New Stampin’ Up! 2017-2018 Annual Catalog). I picked Tangerine Tango, Basic Black and Pear Pizzazz as my ink colors on my stamped and watercolor images. The Flamingo (3-Step Stamping) and the sentiment are both from the new Fabulous Flamingo Stamp Set.

I ran the largest Stitched Shapes Oval Framelit through the Big Shot to cut the oval.  Ran it through the Big Shot again in between the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to add texture.  Then I added watercolor to the “debossed” areas with Pear Pizzazz Classic Ink and an Aqua Painter on Shimmery White Cardstock.  The “Tickled Pink for Sentiment” was also stamped on Shimmery White Cardstock with Basic Black Archival Ink and then the end was flagged using the Paper Snips to get it just the right length for the area.

Baby Thank You Cards! A Perfect Gift for a New Mommy!

Stampin' Up! Made With Love and Something For Baby Stamp Sets, Baby's First Framelits Dies, Baby Thank You Cards, #stampinup #thankyou #baby

Baby Thank You Cards! A Perfect Gift for a New Mommy!

Have a friend or family member that is a new mommy?  Since most new moms / families get showered with gifts for the new baby, they end up writing a lot of thank you notes.  What better way to help them out by gifting them a set of handmade baby thank you cards, a perfect gift they can send out to show their gratitude.  A dozen of these were whipped together, as well as coordinating envelopes & a box to hold them, and sent to my son’s teacher when she had her baby.  This was back in October 2016, so the pictures below were dug out of the archives (hence the different backgrounds).

Stampin' Up! Made With Love and Something For Baby Stamp Sets, Baby's First Framelits Dies, Baby Thank You Cards, #stampinup #thankyou #baby

Several items used to make this card are retiring on May 31st (or while supplies last). Don’t miss out on these fabulous stamp sets that both coordinate with the Baby’s First Framelits Dies.  I think it is always a bonus when framelits dies coordinate with more than one stamp set.  A double bang for your precious buck!

Card Details:

  • The card base is Whisper White Thick Cardstock cut to 5.5 in x 8.25 in and scored / folded at 4.25 in.
  • The Baby Onesie from the Made With Love Stamp Set was stamped on Watercolor Paper with Basic Black Archival Ink and colored with an Aqua Painter and Pool Party Classic Ink.  It was then cropped out by zipping it through the Big Shot with the coordinating die from the Baby’s First Framelits Dies.
  • The Polka-dot Tie from the Something for Baby Stamp Set was stamped in Pool Party Classic Ink and also run the Big Shot with it’s matching die.
  • The Thoughtful Banners Photopolymer Bundle (available for 10% Off through May 31st) was used for the Thank You Sentiment.
  • I LOVE! all the Mettalic Thread Stampin’ Up! has available.  I used the Basic Black to coordinate with this set. #lovethemetallicthread
  • The splatters of black dots behind the onesie, is from the fabulous Timeless Textures stamp set.  Another staple in my stamp collection.
  • Night of Navy Classic Ink was used on the Tie for the box decor and the congratulations sentiment was cropped out perfectly with the Classic Label Punch (A MUST HAVE!),
  • The Polka Dot paper is not a Stampin’ Up! Item, it was from my collection that has been collecting dust for ten years 🙂 (I rarely use Non-Stampin’ Up! products).

Stampin' Up! Made With Love and Something For Baby Stamp Sets, Baby's First Framelits Dies, Baby Thank You Cards, #stampinup #thankyou #baby

I think these three colors pair very well together!  I will use them again on future creations!

Unfortunately, I did not write down instructions or dimensions for the box I created to hold the thank you cards.  I will do another in the future and add the details.
