It's cloudy today and in the low 70's with a nice breeze! A good day to sit on the deck and day dream! And, I did for a bit!
My share for today is a Welcome Baby Card that I designed using SU's A Little Wild and Marbled Stamp Sets, Little Loves Framelits and Lovely Laurels Thinlits Dies and the Pretty Label Punch.
Let's take a look:
My Card Base is Smoky Slate Cardstock cut at 4-1/4" x 11" and scored and folded at 5-1/2" for a Top Folding Card.
Card Front Panel is Blushing Bride Cardstock cut at 3-5/8" x 4-7/8".
Using SU's new Marbled Stamp, I stamped it onto my Card Front Panel with Blushing Bride Ink. What a cool effect!
Using SU's Layering Circles Framelits Dies, I die cut the 2-1/4"
Scalloped Circle through both the Card Base and the Front Panel at the
same time and running it through the BIG Shot Machine twice.
I tied a length of SU's new Pear Pizzazz 3/8" Satin Ribbon into a knot around the top of my Card Front Panel and trimmed the ends on an angle.
I adhered my Card Front Panel to my Card Base with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Using SU's A Little Wild Stamp Set, I masked off the words For A Sweet Little Someone and stamped the A Great BIG Welcome onto a piece of scrap Smoky Slate Cardstock with Basic Black Archival Ink.
I then punched it out with SU's Pretty Label Punch and ran it through the BIG Shot Machine with the 2-1/4" Scalloped Circle Die and adhered it to the bottom of the Scalloped Circle that I die cut in my Front Panel as shown in the picture above.
Using SU's Little Loves Framelits Dies, I die cut 2 of the Long Leaf Stems from Old Olive Cardstock and adhered one across the top of my Label with Mono Multi Purpose Glue (the second one is for the inside of my Card) as shown in the picture above.
Using SU's Lovely Laurels Thilits Dies, I die cut 5 of the Small Leaf Stems and adhered the stems in-between my Card Base and my Card Front Panel allowing them to over hang in the Scalloped Circle.
Using SU's A Little Wild Stamp Set, I stamped the Elephant onto Shimmery White Cardstock with Basic Black Archival Ink.
Using my Aqua Painter, I Watercolored the front and back of the Elephant with Smoky Slate and Blushing Bride Inks.
Instead of leaving the Elephant as a tag, I fussy cut out the front and back of the Elephant, went around the edges with my Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker and adhered the top of the front of the Elephant to the top of the back of the Elephant with Mono Multi Purpose Glue leaving the bottom of the Elephant free of Adhesive.
I then adhered the bottom of the front of the Elephant to the front of my Front Card Panel (as shown in the picture above) and ..........
and ... the back of the Elephant to the inside of my Card as shown in the picture above.
For the inside of my Card:
Using SU's A Little Wild Stamp Set, I masked off the words A Great BIG Welcome and stamped the words For A Sweet Little Someone onto a piece of scrap Blushing Bride Cardstock with Basic Black Archival Ink.
I then punched the words out with SU's Pretty Label Punch. I trimmed off a portion of the Label and adhered it to the inside of my Card as shown in the picture above.
I adhered the second Long Leaf Stem to the bottom of the Label.
Using SU's A Little Wild Stamp Set, I stamped 2 Flowers and one Bee onto Shimmery White Cardstock with Basic Black Archival Ink.
Using my Stampin' Write Markers in Crushed Curry, Blushing Bride and Old Olive, I colored in my Flowers and the Bee.
I brushed some Wink of Stella onto the Bee's wings to give them a nice shine.
Using SU's Little Loves Framelits Dies, I die cut out my Flowers and Bee and adhered them to the inside of my Card as shown in the picture above.
Above is a picture of my Card opened all the way up.
That's all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
