For Baby

Welcome to my final day of Baby Week! Today’s card make look complicated, but it is so easy! One of my favorite color combos is Sweet Sugarplum and Berry Burst and since Sweet Sugarplum is getting ready to retire on May 31st, I wanted to try and incorporate into this card.

Start with a card base in Sweet Sugarplum cardstock, cut at 8 ½” x 5 ½” and scored at 4 ¼”:

Using a piece of the ombre’ Berry Burst DSP from the Color Theory DSP stack, cut at 3” x 4 ¼”:

fullsizeoutput_1738

Then cut at piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼” and from the Moon Baby stamp set, stamp this image in Sweet Sugarplum and Berry Burst inks (they are really close in color and it is hard to tell in the pictures the difference):

Using the Large Letters Framelits, cut out the “baby” letters, then place some Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back to adhere the ombre’ Berry Burst DSP:

I then placed the cut-out letters back and used them as a guide to place the inside of the B and A with Stampin’ Dimensionals in place:

I used a piece of ½” Finely Woven Ribbon in Berry Burst to tie a bow and adhered with a Glue Dot on the upper right side and placed some Glitter Enamel Dots in Berry Burst:

I used the sentiment from the Baby Bear stamp and the star from the Moon Baby stamp set in Sweet Sugarplum ink:

A little something with Baby Bear

Welcome to part 3 of Baby Week! Today I am featuring the Baby Bear stamp set with the True Gentleman DSP! While I was looking thru my Designer Series Paper stash, I saw the plaid paper and thought it would be great to use for a boy card. For this particular card, I am making the Joy Fold Card that my friend and fellow demonstrator, Rachael Rife aka Rachthestamper, featured last October (you can head over to her blog post here). I made a birthday card for a friend’s daughter’s 1st birthday and wanted to recreate this card. I will post a picture of that card at the bottom of this post!

The card base is in Night of Navy cardstock, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½” and again at 2 ¾”:

fullsizeoutput_16de

The inside base is in Crumb Cake cardstock, cut at 3 ¾” x 7 ½” and scored at 3 ¾”:

fullsizeoutput_16e1

For the card base layers, I used the plaid design from the True Gentleman DSP, one piece cut at 4” x 5 ¼” and two pieces cut at 4” x 2 ½”:

fullsizeoutput_16e7

The inside card layers are in Very Vanilla cardstock, 2 pieces cut at 3 ½”:

fullsizeoutput_16e4

I stamped the bear image on one of the Very Vanilla pieces, the stamps are numbered 1, 2, and 3, I started with #3 in Chocolate Chip ink, #2 in Crumb Cake ink, and #1 sponging on Crumb Cake ink. I then used some of the Timeless Textures stamp in Chocolate Chip and Crumb Cake inks around the edges. This piece is then adhered to outside of the Crumb Cake inside base layer:

fullsizeoutput_16eafullsizeoutput_16edfullsizeoutput_16f4

The sentiment is also from the Baby Bear stamp set, stamped in Chocolate Chip ink on the other Very Vanilla layer, and then adhered to the inside of the Crumb Cake inside base layer:

fullsizeoutput_16fa

The plaid DSP is then adhered to the Night of Navy card base:

fullsizeoutput_16f1

I used Multipurpose Glue on the back of the Crumb Cake base layer so it would give me some time to position it on top of the card base:

fullsizeoutput_16fd

The outside sentiment is from the Moon Baby stamp set, stamped on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, cut out with the 2nd smallest oval, layered on top of Night of Navy cardstock, cut out on the 2nd smallest scalloped oval, both from the Layering Ovals Framelits:

fullsizeoutput_16f7

This is then positioned on the front flap so it will hold the Crumb Cake flap, adhering Stampin Dimensionals on the left side of the oval. I then used a piece of Very Vanilla Baker’s Twine, folded in two, tied in a bow, and adhered with Mini Glue Dots:

fullsizeoutput_1702

Below is a picture of the card I created last October, this really is a fun card to make for any occasion by changing up the paper and stamp sets!

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”:

fullsizeoutput_16b6

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

fullsizeoutput_16b9

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:

fullsizeoutput_16c1

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:

fullsizeoutput_16c7

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?

Celebrating Baby!

Hello and welcome to a new week and a new theme! This week I am Celebrating Baby by featuring cards for a baby shower or to welcome a newborn! Today’s card is from the Moon Baby stamp set, which originally came out in the 2017 Occasions Catalog and then was carried over to the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog. This was one of the first stamp sets I purchased from the 2017 Occasions Catalog, I just thought it was so sweet and would be a perfect addition as I did not have any baby stamps. I went with a more neutral theme, but you could change the colors to reflect a boy or a girl.

I first started by stamping the “baby in the moon” stamp on a piece of Whisper White cardstock in Black Archival Ink. I used the Ivory and Bronze Stampin’ Blends to color in the skin and hair, then used a Blender Pen to color the moon in So Saffron ink, the baby’s pajamas in Wild Wasabi ink, and the star in Smoky Slate ink with some Wink of Stella. This piece is then cut out:

fullsizeoutput_1691

Next, I used a piece of Whisper White cardstock cut at 3 ½” x 4 ¾”, which I used a Sponge Brayer to completely color in Pool Party ink:

fullsizeoutput_1694

I used Stampin’ Sponges to add Tempting Turquoise and Night of Navy inks:

Give this a few minutes to dry completely, use the Embossing Buddy over the whole area, stamp the “three stars” stamp in Versamark ink, sprinkle with White Embossing Powder, and then heat emboss with your Heat Tool:

fullsizeoutput_16a3

The base layer is a Silver Foil Sheet, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and embossed with the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder:

fullsizeoutput_16a6

The sentiment is also from the Moon Baby stamp set, on a piece of Whisper White, first stamped in Versamark, then stamped in Pool Party, and I used Clear Embossing Powder which is set with the Heat Tool. This is then cut out with the smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits:

fullsizeoutput_16a9

To put this card together, I used a piece of Pool Party cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½” and scored at 4 ¼”, adhered the two base pieces together, and then adhered the moon baby and sentiment on top with Stampin’ Dimensionals:

fullsizeoutput_16b0

Isn’t this a super cute card?? If you were giving this at a baby shower, the colors could be coordinated!!
