Sweet Baby Girl

Baby Shower Card

 

Celebrating a new life at a baby shower is always so much fun! Not only are there fun games and great food – but we get to “ooooooouuuuuu” and “awwwwwwwww” and all the pretty, little things!

Although I missed the last baby shower I was invited to due to what we now refer to as “THE Accident” – I had so much fun making this card for my dear friend, Marie.

  • I used Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper – a paper that was available with last year’s Sale-A-Bration. Although it is no longer available – I thought it was the perfect paper to use for this card.
  • The “girl” came from the Endless Birthday Wishes Photopolymer Set … I think it pairs nicely with the Sweet Baby sentiment from the Ittle Bitty Banners set

Baby Shower Card

 

  • The twine also came from last years Sale-A-Bration offerings…. I love the thickness of it!
  • The Magnetic Platform for the Big Shot made cutting out the onesie image a breeze!

Personal Update

Howdy folks! Just wanted to check in with everyone and let you all know that I am okay – just a little shaken up.

If you hang with me on Facebook you might have seen a photo of a seriously messed up rear end of a car…. that was mine. If you want the details – here they are:

  • I was driving approximately 40 miles per hour
  • I felt myself go forward rather quickly and heard a loud BOOM along with a screeching sound
  • I stopped the car, got out and said “REALLY!?”
  • After a call to 9-1-1 and a attempting to get in touch with my husband while he was at work (not an easy task) my car was towed off to a yard for the weekend and I was brought to a rental car agency
  • The person who hit me is 17 years old. He said he only looked down for a minute. (I am assuming he was looking at his phone)
  • I WAS GOING 40 MILES PER HOUR! I wasn’t stopped! I didn’t hit the brakes! I was in the process of actually driving FORWARD!

So there are the details of the accident. The car is totaled. Which stinks cause it was paid for and I kinda sorta loved it.

But the best news is that both I, and the other driver, walked away from the accident with no broken bones or internal bleeding. And for that I am very grateful.

(I am also grateful that I was the only one in my family in the car – if the kids would have been in the backseat the story could be much, much worse)

So – that is what I have been dealing with this week. I have projects to post and will get them up starting tomorrow.

(One is a really cute Baby Shower card that I made for a friend – which she hasn’t received yet because I was on my way to the baby shower when I got hit)

Thinking of You-Honeycomb Style

card idea, stampin up, stampin up demonstrator, thinking of you, butterfly punch, sheltering tree

 

I always want to get the most out of my stamps – anyone else with me on that? For this card, I used one of the Sentiments from the Sheltering Tree stamp set – without using the tree. Sentiments are pretty versatile and cool like that.

  • For the background, I used the Dictionary Background stamp and the Honeycomb Embossing Folder
  • Instead of embossing the panel, I just added ink directly to the Embossing Folder and pressed the card stock between the folder with my fingers – rubbing over the outside of the folder to transfer the ink to the card stock without the embossing finish.
  • The butterfly image was stamped with Papillion Potpourri and punch out using the Elegant Butterfly Punch
  • I wanted a background color that popped against the Coastal Cabana – and I found the perfect background paper for this card in the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack. It’s not just for Valentine’s Day after all!
  • Can you guess how I distressed the card front and the banners? I’ll give you two hints: Sahara Sand and a Sponge Dauber (It really is one of my favorite techniques – its so easy!)
  • Linen thread brings a natural texture to the card front

Daffodil Delight Hello

Hello Card, Card Idea, Stampin Up, Stampin Up Demonstrator, Scallop Punch

 

Another Hello Card to brighten someone’s day! Daffodil Delight is such a fun color – bold, but not too bold! It pairs pretty nicely with Smokey Slate, don’t you think?

  • I created the background for this card using the Kinda Eclectic stamp set – be sure to use a Stamp-a-ma-jig if you don’t want to have overlapping images like the ones featured above. (The overlap personally doesn’t bother me on this card – but for others it would drive me nuts. A Stamp-a-ma-jig is definitely a must have for every craft room just in case!)
  • The flowers were created using Scallop Punches…be sure to cut into the scallops to create petals

stampin up, card ideas, hello card, stamping, stampin up demonstrator

  • The flowers were punched out with Whisper White Card Stock and then colored in using sponge daubers with So Saffron and Daffodil Delight ink
  • Linen thread behind the flower image adds some natural texture to the card front
  • The sentiment is distressed using the same sponge daubers that were used to color the flowers – as well as the edges of the card front
  • Complete the flower by adding a little bling to the center with a rhinestone
