Sweet as can be!

Today I’m sharing another creation from the Moon Baby and Dare to Dream stamp sets! This is really the first time I’ve used Dare to Dream, which is a hostess set from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog, considering it’s been sitting on my shelf since I won it at OnStage last April!

I first started with a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½” and scored at 4 ¼” and again at 2 1/8”:

After folding the front panel pieces, I used the “hot air balloon” from Dare to Dream and stamped in Melon Mambo ink:

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the “baby with the umbrella” in Black Archival ink. The Designer Series Paper used is from Painted with Love, cut out with the largest scalloped Layering Squares Framelits, and the baby is cut out with the 2nd largest square framelit:

Then color in the umbrella with Melon Mambo Stampin Write Marker, the baby’s pajamas with the Powder Pink Stampin’ Write Marker, the baby’s hands and face are colored in with Ivory Stampin’ Blends, and the hair with Bronze Stampin’ Write Marker. This is then adhered to the scalloped square piece of DSP:

The inside is a piece of 1 ½” x 5 ½” DSP and a piece of 2 5/8” x 5 ½” Whisper White cardstock. I used Multipurpose Glue on these pieces to give me a chance to set them on the inside. The sentiment is from Dare to Dream, stamped in Melon Mambo ink, and added some stars in Powder Pink ink. I used adhesive on the left side of the layering square piece, centering in the middle:

With the different colors on this DSP, you could change to Powder Pink or even Rich Razzleberry! I love this super cute card, what do you think?

Please contact me if you have any questions about the products used on this or any other project. I hope you enjoyed this card and thanks for stopping by!

I am an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia and was first introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2004 when I attended my very first card class with my Mother-in-Law and I was immediately hooked! I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and figured I could just do it for a hobby, but now I am going to branch out for all to world to see. So grab your favorite beverage, sit in your favorite chair, and join me as I share my cards and crafts with you! Enjoy!
