Here is a fun and bright card made with the Oh Whale set… this would be perfect for a baby shower, don't you think? I tried to make it unisex but the pink ribbon makes it a little girly at the end. I think I would switch it out to blue or green ribbon for a boy but liked how the pink matched the hearts above the whale. 

I love how it looks on this card to use a white base and have the bright yellow pop off from it.. I think it gives it a really fresh spring feeling!

stamps: oh, whale
ink: Marina mist, Lucky Limeade, Melon Mambo
paper: Whisper white, Daffodil Delight, Sunshine and Sprinkles Designer Series paper 
big shot: Happy Whale Clearlits die, perfect polka dots embossing folder
other: 3/8" striped organdy ribbon- melon mambo

Whalecome New Year!

Yes -- I know it's been 2013 for like a week now, but I'm finally done sharing all the holiday stuff and I'm ready to bring on the new year with some new bright and fun cards! The spring catalog from Stampin' Up makes this task easy --  Check out the fun new stamps and paper on this card! It uses the new set called "oh, whale"… This set will be great for making baby cards as well as kids birthdays, thank yous or valentines - I love it when something is that versatile!

For this card I used the daffodil delight paper as my card base and some of the super fun umbrella paper from the Sunshine and sprinkles designer paper. I also used a bit of the beautiful new ribbon (3/8" striped organdy). The stamped the whale with marina mist ink and cut him out using the coordinating die (Happy Whale) in the big shot.

Baby Cards!

When I discovered the gingham technique I thought it would also work great for baby cards - and I never seem to have baby cards on hand when I need them so Inked up a bunch of gingham backgrounds in baby colors (see post here for details on the gingham background) and made some quick baby cards to have for my stash! 

These cards are also simple and use the stamp set Fox and Friends (retired) and a variety of circle punches and embellishments.  I made a couple gender -neutral green and yellow cards using the giraffe and lion. 

Here's a pink and yellow version for a baby girl using the monkey and some little flowers!

And the Boy version, using a turtle and one of the itty bitty buttons. 

stamps: Fox and Friends (retired), fabulous phrases,  teeny tiny wishes
ink: Various colors
paper: Various colors
Big shot:,Stripes embossing folder
other: Bakers twine, dimensionals, Various circle punches, itty bitty buttons, itty bitty shapes punch pack, self adhesive pearls

Onsie Card

I made this super cute onsie card for my friends baby shower! She knows she's having a boy so I made it with Ballet Blue Card stock (one of the colors that's retiring at the end of the month). I cut it the long way to start with a card that's 4 1/4 by 11, then fold it in half. I embossed the front half of the card using the dots embossing folder in my Big Shot. Then I punched out the neck and legs with a 1 3/8" circle punch. I then punched out some scallop circle edges in white to make the leg and neck edges. Note: the easiest way to do this is to punch out the circle first, then you can center it inside the scallop circle punch and punch that out next. I cut in on the sides about 2 inches from the top and then cut it to the leg holes. I made myself a template so it will be easy to trace and make more later!

I used some striped grosgrain ribbon around the middle (also retiring) and then stamped a cute little whale from the Fox & Friends stamp set. This set was in the Occassions Mini. I punched the whale out with the 1 3/8 circle and then framed him with a scallop circle cut from Barely Banana cardstock (also retiring). The "new baby" words are from a really old stamp set I found in my retired stash!

Baby Shower card

I went to a baby shower last weekend where the parents were decorating the baby's room with Jungle of course I had to pull out my animal stories stamp set and make a card for her! I stamped the monkey, lion and whale in bright colors and then punched them out with the 1 3/8" circle punch. For the lion, I stamped him again and trimmed out his tiny little head and popped it off with a dimensional to give it more depth.

I punched coordinating scallops to frame the animals in pumpkin pie, old olive and tempting turquoise card stock. To add more detail I used the tiny circle hand punch to make the little hole in each scallop. I wanted the cared to have a jungle feel so I used some paper from the Island Oasis paper pack (the stripes and the palm leaves). Then I used the so saffron paper and new texture folder from the summer mini (square lattice) in the Big Shot to create the texture piece going through the center. Finish it off with a scallop border punch to make it super cute!

The sentiment "for a little someone" is from a retired set I found in my stamp cupboard!

stamps: animal stories
ink:pumpkin pie, so saffron, tempting turquoise, soft suede
paper: island oasis designer paper, so saffron, whisper white, tempting turquoise, old olive, pumpkin pie
other: scallop circle punch, circle punch, square lattice embossing folder,

Welcome Baby!

I just made some baby boycards the other night. I needed one for a co-worker and ended up making two similar designs just for fun. Both cards use litte animals cut out using my cuttlebug and a giant scallop circle punched out using my awesome marvy scallop punches. For stamps I stamped a background using the circles and dots stamps from the Polka Dots and Petals stamp set, and words from Everyday Flexible Phrases and Warm words. (Both of these word sets are 20% off this month! contact me for details)

stamps: Polka dots and petals, Everyday Flexible Phrase and Warm Words
papers: So Saffron, Bashful Blue, Whisper White, and Brilliant Blue
accessories: blue gingham ribbon, cream grosgrain ribbon, white grosgrain ribbon, cuttlebug (not SU), Scallop punch (not SU)
