Handmade Baby Card using Stampin’ Up! products

We have a new niece.  My sister in law Janet, has just had a baby girl called Holly and I am absolutely delighted for them all.  So I had the lovely job of making a handmade baby card for them.  I thought I would try something different and make those cute little frilly baby knickers you see….

I used the very pretty delicate designs embossing folder to create the frills on whisper white cardstock and used the matching large scallop die to cut out the scallop.  I then layered the embossed pieces to create the frills…

I drew the knickers freehand a couple of time to get the shape and size about right and layered it onto the heart paper from the Stacked with Love paper stack.  It needed a pink accent so I finished if off with some ribbon and buttons and the tiny sentiment welcome baby.

I can’t wait to meet her and give her a cuddle.

Stippled Blossom from Stampin’ Up!

I have a pretty card to share with you today.  I used a lovely sketch from Stamping&Blogging and the Stippled Blossom stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to make this handmade card suitable for any occasion.
Stippled-Blossom from Stampin Up

I used Pink Pirouette and Strawberry Slush Ink to make the flowers with the Stippled Blossom set which is a two step stamp which means you have to stamp the background in one colour and the detail with another darker shade.

I used the Large Polka Dot Embossing folder for the background and finished the card off with a strawberry slush ‘hello’ from the Hello You Thinlits Dies.

Here is the sketch, I turned the sketch 90 degrees to make my card.

Sketch Challenge Card using Hello There from Stampin’ Up!

I’m on the mend.  My energy levels are creeping back up and soon I hope to feel like my old self.  I know I have been ill as the thought of making a card has filled me with horror but I sat down to make this weeks sketch challenge card and was expecting a hard time and I was rather pleased with the result.

It is nothing fancy but I love the vintage colour scheme which was inspired by the paper from the All Abloom paper stack.

Indescribable Gift from Stampin’ Up!

Today I am sharing a card made using the Indescribable Gift stamp set from Stampin’ Up!
indescribable-gift-

I used a white ink refill and coloured ink refills to colour in the flowers with an aqua painter.  It is a lovely way to get a chalk effect.

We have been the poorly house all last week.  Simon and I were both so ill and laid up in bed whilst building work was going on around us.  I had someone ready to put paint on the walls but was in no fit condition to choose paint colours so I asked him to paint everything white which means we have a rather clinical white looking extension!!

Seems like it will take longer than I thought to get the house back to normal…

Hope you had a lovely Mothers Day weekend x
