This card was made for very good friends, who we miss so much because they live in the UK, and who welcomed their first born son into their lives earlier this year.
I made this card at the same time as the baby girl’s card, so it was nice to make the same card and simply change the colour combo for a boy and girl. The colours I’ve used are Bashful Blue, Old Olive and Whisper White. The white satin ribbon is so elegant, I just love it!
Just the same as the girl’s card, I stamped the Baby Tees jumbo wheel in Staz On black ink and then cut it out and coloured it in using my aqua painter and ink pads. And the sentiment was from Well Scripted too.
My neighbour gave birth to a beautiful baby boy last Monday, and he’s simply adorable! It’s so nice to have a newborn bubba only next door!!!
This is the card I made to go with his present …
My favourite jumbo wheel, Nursery Letters, is the base for this card. Then I used God’s Blessing for the sentiment, which fits perfectly inside the large square metal edge tag! I was happy about that! Do you recognise a new colour? It’s the new In Color, Pacific Point, and it’s gorgeous!! I even sponged around the edge of the sentiment to use more of the ink!! LOL! The other colour is Bashful Blue … and the ribbon is the Bashful Blue 1″ double stitched.
This is a close up of the stars … aren’t they sparkly!!! I punched out the stars and using my Versamark ink and the Heat & Stick powder, I then adhered Chunky Sprinkles to the stars.
I’ve a few baby cards to show you today. The first two are from my embossing class the other night.
For these cards, everyone used the jumbo wheel with Nursery Letters and then embossed with Heat & Stick power and Dazzling Diamonds for a sparkling effect! Gosh, it looks even better in real life! Then we embossed the prams from Simple Somethings with silver embossing powder … and everyone could colour as they pleased to suit their events! I’ve coloured the baby girl’s card in Pretty in Pink using the Stampin’ Up! pastels …
I’ve coloured in the baby boy’s card using Bashful Blue from my Stampin’ Up! pastels …
This is a close up … I love the Heat & Stick plus Dazzling Diamonds effect, don’t you!?!
Then I had a card left over, so this is an additional card I made. This time I used the baby stamp from In the Stars (available in the Summer Mini) and stamped it in Versamark and then Barely Banana Ink … and then embossed it. I’ve used a metal edge tag to add elegance to the card and I used the Certainly Celery DSP to punch out the scallop circle that I’ve layered the baby stamp onto. I hope that makes sense!
This is a close up …
And, lastly, white taffeta ribbon finished off all of the cards.
I really love the simplicity and elegance of these two cards. They were great fun to make because I used the masking technique and the way I’ve attached taffeta ribbon is clever, yet it is so easy to attach that even a card-making beginner, who may find it challenging to look upon, would find it simple to do.
I’ve used the colours Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery and Barely Banana for the baby boy’s card:
And I’ve used the colours Pretty in Pink , Certainly Celery and Barely Banana for the baby girl’s card:
I think these would be great cards for a “make and take” or a “stamp-a-stack”. I’ll be using them as “make and takes” on the weekend and I’m sure they’ll be a hit!
The stamp sets I’ve used are All Year Fun to decorate the balls with lots of Dazzling Diamonds and Short and Sweet for the message “Welcome Baby”. Short and Sweet has to one of the most versatile and useful stamp sets I have! I love it!
A very special baby boy is being baptised this weekend. Unfortunately, we aren’t able to attend the service as it is in Brisbane, but our prayers are with Brynn for Sunday.
This is the card I made to send up with his present. I love the Bashful Blue and Barely Banana combination for a baby boy card – don’t you? And I’m addicted to the metal edge tags at the moment – they’re awesome!
So what have I used for this card? The base of the card stock is textured Bashful Blue. I stamped the message from God’s Blessings on the metal edge tag, then I’ve stamped and embossed in silver the duck clip and rattle from All Year Fun. I then rolled my jumbo Nursery Letters wheel in Barely Banana on the bottom half of the card and layered it on Barely Banana card stock. I’ve divided the card with the 1″ stitched grosgrain ribbon (available in the Summer Mini catalogue) – it’s it stunning ribbon! I sponged around the edge of the white cardstock with Barely Banana and then finished the card off with three star brads from the Styled Silver Hodgepodge.
