Cards- Baby

Quick and Cute Piggy

I've got another cute little piggy card to share with you today. Its very simple but very sweet.

I used watercolor paper and aqua painters to watercolor the little pig. Its as simple as squeezing the lids of the inkpads, into the pad itself and picking up the deposited bit of ink on the inside of the lid with the aqua painter and coloring the image. I used the new "in color", powder pink, as well as flirty flamingo and a bit of pear pizazz for the grass.

How do you like the new "Oh My Stars" emboss folder that I used on the whisper white background? Pretty cool, huh?

I cut the scallop circle from the crumb cake cardstock with the Layering Circles framlits and also used the crumb cake cardstock for the card base.

I finished the card with the new powder pink finely woven ribbon and attached it with a glue dot.

On the inside, I used the verse "Says Thanks!" I'm just loving This Little Piggy and I think you will too!

Thanks for stopping by.

Until the next time...

New Stamp Set Sneak Peek & #1 Stampers Meeting Peeks!

My #1 Stampers team meeting was a few days ago. I always look forward to these get togethers with all the amazing and fun women on my team. We meet, chat, stamp, swap and eat. What could be better than that?

This month, my friend Kris Benkeser volunteered to do a demonstration on little girl dress up cards. Kris used the Layering Circle and Layering oval framelits as well as the New Stitched Shapes framelits, to design these sweet dresses.They were so adorable. I have a photo, but its not the best. Trust me these are so much cuter in person.

It was Kris's first time ever to do a demonstration. She did an amazing job!

Here's two more:

 We had so many great swaps as well as a few great make n takes and a NEW "In Color" book mark chart that we created that night.

Here's a look at the oh so pretty make n take designed by Kathy Sullivan. She used the Timeless Textures stamp set on this card, with some dazzling diamonds glitter applied to the middle of the flowers to sparkle it up.

IMG_4470

So, two of the Make n Takes that I designed were made with new stamp sets that will be debuted in the NEW Stampin' Up! 2017-2018 Catalog! I will share one of them with you now. This card is made with the Eastern Palace stamp set suite. And I have some good news for you.... It will be available for Pre Order on May 1st! So, you will be able to get it before the new catalog is released in June! Whoo HOO!

Talk about a gorgeous set! Not only is it gorgeous, but it has so many stamps and dies, that the possibilities are endless! Did you notice a new color? Yes, its one of the new "In Colors" - Fresh Fig!

Ok, I'm going to show you some display boards from my recent Stampin' Up! trip to Virginia. These are some of the actual stamped images and dies in the suite. I will be sending out ordering info in 5 more days!

Coloring with Markers- Stampin Up Carousel Birthday

Here's a quick card using the Stampin Up Carousel Birthday stamp set and Stampin Up Markers.

I chose 3 basic colors for this card, mint macaron,(green) pink pirouette (pink) and soft sky (blue) markers. Then I used 2 darker shades of each basic color. This gives the image, depth and shading without having to think about it.

IMG_3422

I added old olive and emerald envy to the mint macaron, (green horse) flirty flamingo and melon mambo to the pink pirouette (pink horse) and tempting turquoise and pacific point to soft sky (blue horse).

IMG_3423

I attached the colorful enamel dots to the tops of the poles to match the colors of the horses.

IMG_3419

I thought the white pom pom trim was a perfect touch for a carousel. I attached the trim with tear tape to ensure that it stayed put.

IMG_3425

I added the clear shimmery Wink of Stella brush over the horses. I tried to get a good photo, to show how it shimmers in real life, but if you look at the blue horse, you can see the shimmer on the front legs.

IMG_3422

This would make a special birthday card for a little girl- or even a big girl! It makes a great baby card as well. Have fun with it!

Stampin' Up! Baby Bear Ideas

Oh how we are all loving this adorable stuffed teddy bear. I have a couple more cards to share with you today.

I made a girl and a boy bear. I mean, I could make tons of these in every color! As you may know, this is a 3 step stamp set. Which means that we can stamp the images in layers over top of each other to create shading, depth and dimension. I really love the 2 and 3 step stamps. They create so many possibilities and the images look so realistic.

The bear was stamped in 3 layers. The first stamp ( all the stamps are numbered by the way) is stamped in delightful dijon ink,  crumb cake ink and lastly, chocolate chip ink.

I used calypso coral ink and cardstock as well as a calypso coral enamel heart shape on the bears chest.

IMG_9995

So, after I stamped this, I learned that I should line up the bears arm pits and butt- to get the layers perfect, when I stamp it. I'll try that next time. The Happy Heart emboss folder and the new "Very Vanilla 1/2" lace trim give this card the perfect soft and pretty touch.

IMG_9996

Now, for the boy bear... His layers are stamped in so saffron, delightful dijon and chocolate chip ink. I also used wisteria wonder and elegant eggplant ink for his bow tie.

IMG_9997

I used some dimensionals under the so saffron cardstock and the bow to give it some lift. Again, I added an enamel heart shape in so saffron to the bottom of the thank you card.

IMG_9999

Don't they make a cute couple?

IMG_0001

I hope I've inspired you to give 3 step stamping a try!

Thanks for stopping by.

Until the next time...

Stampin' Up! "Baby Bear" stamp set - She's so Adorable

I'm sharing a sweet and sassy "Baby Bear" stamped card with you today. It's such a girly-girl card. Perfect for the new baby or little princess, or even a big princess.

I used lots of pinks on this Baby Bear card. The cardstock colors are flirty flamingo and very vanilla. I also added the polka dotted paper from the "Pop of Pink" designer series paper pack in the new Stampin' Up! catalog. I used the flirty flamingo ink in conjunction with the melon mambo ink on the bow. This is a 3 step stamp set. For the bow I used 2 steps, which means I layered two stamps on top of each other to create the colors on the bow.

IMG_0002

The bears body is 3 colors, which means that I used the 3 step stamping technique. I layered 3 stamps on top of each other to create shading, dimension and depth. For the bears body I first used the boldest stamp in so saffron ink, then I layered crumb cake ink over that and chocolate chip was the last layer with the most detailed stamp.

IMG_9603

I added the new "Enamel Shapes" to the bow and the greeting. The bow has a melon mambo heart shape and I attached two small circle shapes to the greeting. Did you notice the new punch? Its the "Classic Label" punch. Perfect fit for the greetings in this stamp set. To finish it off, I wrapped the gorgeous flirty flamingo ruched ribbon around the bottom.

IMG_0005

Isn't she just adorable?

I appreciate you stopping by today. Big bear hugs to you!

Until the next time...

Stampin' Up! - Baby Bear Boy

It's a "Baby Bear" boy this time. The last post was a sweet little girl bear, so I thought I would design the boy version of the Baby Bear stamp set.

I used the same exact layout and made a few minor changes. Of course, I chose soft sky ink and cardstock for the "blue" on this card.  Its such a soft, powdery blue color, perfect for a baby boy bear. I also used very vanilla and marina mist cardstock. I used the same inks as I did on the girl bear, crumb cake, tip top taupe and chocolate chip. This is a three step stamp, so always start with the boldest stamp and lightest color first.

IMG_9824

This time I cut out the bow and used it around the neck of the bear instead of on the head.

IMG_9825

I love the "Festive" emboss folder for baby cards. Its so delicate and sweet. Check out the enamel shapes heart that I added to the bow tie. I am loving these enamel shapes. I can use them on everything!

IMG_9826

I finished the card with the new very vanilla 1/2" lace trim. This ribbon is gorgeous, and perfect for the finishing touch on this sweet baby bear card.

Thanks for checking out my blog today.

Until the next time..
