Baby’s two.

Baby cards are always a delight to create and this little fella was no exception.

What better way to express the love that a baby generates than with the Embossing folder Happy Hearts. It was perfect to start with. I adhered it to the Whisper White base card. I then created a frame using a rectangular die  and rounded the corners with the Envelope Board in Tempting Turquoise

The little romper suit was cut from Birthday Bash Occasions 2015 (retired) DSP Paper using the Baby’s First Framelits and the tie added in coordinating Tempting Turquoise Card Stock.

I grabbed the some letters  I have and created the sentiment and cut with the Bitty Banners Die. My little ducky was stamped in Daffodil Delight then die cut with the Baby’s First Framelits. I popped the frame and the romper suit up on Dimensionals added three pearls to the side  and one on the tie. Adhereing one small duck on the front completed the card.

Some products are still available if you wish to recreate a similar card. One of the great things about Stampin’ Up! are the bundles that they offer and these two come in a bundle so you save! save! save!  Happy Stamping!

Combination Card.

Like so many others I still have an assortment of products other than Stampin’Up and this card is one I made using some of them together with my SU gear.. I really like the way the card is made then framed with the contrasting card stock. I hDuck front and logoave used the duck from the  Moon Lake Clear Stamp Set out of the Occasions Catalogue and stamped it on Very Vanilla card stock. I embossed the Cattails with The Big Shot and the birds on the wire.  These were from Darice Natures Borders.

I cut out the Spellbinders Cattails, colored with a cotton bud dabbed on Crumb Cake, Smoky Slate and Early Espresso with a touch of Pear Pizza and Mossy Meadow on the leaves then cut in half – only needed a few and adhered with sticky dots over the embossed image. The embossed Cattails were colored with chalk as was the duck from Moonlake  from the Ocassions Catalogue.

I Used the Thinking of you from the Wetlands Stamp set and some cattails (well they will do) from the Wetlands Stamps on Very Vanilla and cut it out with the Chalk Talk Framelit on the Big Shot.     I also cut out the backing from Mossy Meadow at the same time and used the lower section.  Then I tied it together with dyed string in Mossy Meadow  and hung them with a sticky dot from the wire.Inside duckswith logo

Looking inside the embossing gives a nice de-embossed image to the inside front of the card. A final stamp with the Cattails again then I mounted it onto some Mossy Meadow card stock to frame it.

Tomorrow is a double day with a card that is part of a challenge and some words about me    for  a blog hop.

See u then.
