10 Little Toes

I wanted to share this baby card with you.  My cousins recently had an adorable baby boy and I have a friend who is also expecting a boy too. I will do something different for that one but can't post until much later!!

I used the "Baby Prints" from the Occasions Mini (don't forget items only available until the end of April!)  I stamped the feet & hands, cut both out using my fabulous paper snips, makes things so much easier.  I popped up the feet on the front and the hands on the inside.

The greeting was stamped & punched using the Curly Label Punch.  I adhered to the front with a Marina Mist Brad to match of course!  The strip of Designer Paper is from the "Stacks" collection of Subtles.  It is Bashful Blue sponged with Marina Mist.  I put a strip on the inside of the paper as well.

Hope you enjoy!  Happy Stamping.

Stamps: Baby Prints
Ink: Bashful Blue, Marina Mist
Cardstock: Bashful Blue, Marina Mist, Whisper White, Subtles Collection Paper Stack
Extras: Paper Snips, Sponge Daubers, Subtles Collection Brads, Curly Label Punch, Paper Piercer & Mat Pack, Snail Adhesive, Stampin' Dimensionals

Summer Smooch New Catty Sneak Peak

I love sneak peaks!  The card below was actually inspired by the Mojo Monday sketch challenge 236.  I didn't actually go with their circle, I just couldn't get what I was going for so changed it slightly but I loved this idea of the layout.

I used the new Sneak Peak Summer Smooches Stamp Set, Designer Paper, Fabric Brads & Ribbon!

I started with the Daffodil Delight background/cardbase.  I cut two strips of Designer Paper and one piece of Tempting Turquoise that I ran through the big shot with the Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  I wrapped the Daffodil Delight Seam Binding Ribbon around the top and adhered down.

I used a Tempting Turquoise & Lucky Limeade Marker to colour the vase & greenery of the stamp then pierced a hole for the matching & fabulous Fabric Brad.  Note that the Brads & Stencil available during this promotion are only available until the end of April, everything else will be in the new catalogue.

The sentiment is from "Short & Sweet" stamped in Tempting Turquoise, this stamp set is actually retiring at the end of May.  Yes, May, as you may recall me mentioning that the current Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalogue will now end in May instead of June.  The retired list of stamp sets is now out and you can see the retired list of accessories on April 25th.

Happy Stamping & Enjoy!
