I Brake For…Tickled Pink!!

Hello stampers and welcome to Wednesday and I Brake For Stamps!  Do you know someone who is having a baby?  How about a baby girl?  Here is a card with a super cute stamp to celebrate the new addition!

 

The stamp is called Tickled Pink and is found here.  I stamped it with two different markers, a black one for most of the text and pink for the “tickled pink” part.  The little booties were stamped once on a piece of scrap paper where I colored them pink, cut them out and then glued them onto the front.

The frame and cutout for the centers are die cuts.  I popped the center of the frame out with foam tape to make it stand out a bit more.  The pink mat is embossed with a large dot embossing folder.

I hope you will stop by the IBFS store and check out all the great stamps there.  Use code SAVAE10NANCY for 10% off your order.  If you are looking for some Father’s Day images they have some great masculine/outdoor stamps that would be perfect.

Thanks for stopping by today!

baby onesie card

My niece and her husband are expecting their first child right around Christmas.  I won’t be able to make it for the baby shower (I live too far away) so I decided to send her a gift card – enclosed in a cute card shaped like a onsie!

The card is from the silhouette design store and you can make it any size you want – mine ended up being about 6 inches tall.  The truck on the front and the edging on the arms, legs and collar were all cut from the same patterned paper.

When I first cut the onesie shape in blue cardstock it looked a bit flat so I embossed it with a cuttlebug folder called Oxford.  It’s my latest favorite embossing folder!  In fact I liked it so much that I ended up buying a second one because I forgot I had already purchased it!  And now I am trying to sell the extra one on one of those de-stash facebook sites.  Take a closer look at the embossing.

Once the card was put together I did not have a regular envelope to fit it, so I just grabbed a sheet of scrapbook paper from a baby themed pad and made my own.  I made a tag using a file from the silhouette design store (baby boy) and adhered that onto a scalloped circle cut with a spellbinders die.   Here is what the final package looks like.

Clean and simple Monday – background builders

Hello friends – I hope your week is starting off well.  It’s the fourth of July week and everything seems to be decked out in red, white and blue around here!

I’m playing along with the CAS challenge at SCS – this week we are to use the colors navy, olive and white.  I also decided to let my stamps do extra duty by creating the background on this card – no it’s not designer paper – just stamps and ink!

I love the versatility of this particular set – Medallions Background Basics from PTI.  It contains two long images – I stamped on in blue and the other in green (both Memento inks) to create the pattern.  The colors have a nice masculine feel to them.  The sentiment is also from PTI and was stamped in the same blue ink used in the background – which is another great reason to use stamps to create a background – instant coordination!

Because this card was so easy to pull together, I decided to make another one – this time with much softer colors.  Here is how it turned out.

I used Palette’s Toile Pink ink (because the Memento Pink I had was just too bright) along with Memento New Sprout.  New Sprout is a close match to SU’s Celery color.  I used celery paper and ribbon on this card.  The sentiment was stamped in a slightly darker green – Memento Bamboo leaves so that it would stand out more.

So – a couple of stamps used in a similar manner but by changing the ink colors I ended up two different looks.

clean and simple monday

Today’s challenge at Splitcoast Stampers was to be inspired by {this card} from the talented Birgit.  I chose to keep the baby theme and created this card using the L Letterpress product.

Most of  the materials are from L Letterpress – the paper, ink and images.  The rectangles were cut using nestabilities and the ribbon is from a package of baby themed ribbon from either Michaels or JoAnns.  The star on the onsie was created with a small punch and simply glued on to the image.

You can’t tell from the photo, but since the diamond pattern, onsie and sentiment were all letterpressed the card has a nice debossed look for those images. 

Have you tried letterpressing?   If you are making multiples of one card it is the way to go. Once you set up the plates and paper you can whip out a bunch in no time. 

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you will join us at SCS for this weeks clean and simple challenge!
