It’s day two of the second round of snow/ice/icky weather here in Atlanta so I thought that it was time to pull out the Baby, We’ve Grown stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create a sweet, happy baby card to share with you today. Maybe it will bring some sunshine our way!
I made this card for the Stamping & Blogging SB43 Sketch Challenge this week. Be sure to check out what the other Design Team Members made with this sketch too, links to their blogs are below.
I started by trimming two 1/2″ x 5-1/4″ strips from a sheet from the Fresh Prints DSP Stack. I adhered the two thin strips to the back of a panel from the Fresh Prints DSP Stack, then to the Crumb Cake card base with SNAIL.
I stamped the sentiment and image from the Baby, We’ve Grown stamp set (wood mount and clear mount) in StazOn Jet Black Ink on a Whisper White panel, using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to help with placement. I colored the images with my Stampin’ Write Markers then punched it out with the 2-1/2″ Circle Punch and adhered it with SNAIL to a Circles Collection Framelits die cut from Coastal Cabana card stock.
Then I punched out several Banner Punches (Sale-a-bration item) from Coastal Cabana and Crumb Cake DSP. The DSP is from the 2013-15 In Colors DSP Stacks and the Neutrals DSP Stacks. I adhered the Banner Punches to the back of the die cut circle with SNAIL, then adhered the entire stamped image to the card front with SNAIL.
I ran a piece of Whisper White Baker’s Twine across my Coastal Cabana ink pad, then tied it through a Crumb Cake button from the Neutrals Designer Buttons pack. I finished the card front by adhering the button with a Glue Dot.
I used another thin strip from the Fresh Prints DSP Stack and a strip of Crumb Cake card stock to decorate the inside of the card.
You can find a complete list of supplies, including card stock cuts, at the very bottom of this post.
Now that you’ve seen my project, be sure to stop by the other Stamping & Blogging Design Team Members blogs to see what they’ve created with this sketch:
