Baby Boy Baptism Card

I made this card for my nephew’s baptism. To be honest, I didn’t realize the pattern of the International Bazaar Designer Series Paper is made up of cross-like shapes until I was done with the card. A happy accident I guess!

The card base is Gina K base weight White card stock. As I mentioned, the DSP is from International Bazaar. I decided to go with the colors in the paper, so I stamped the cross from Crosses of Hope in Island Indigo ink and then colored it in with Pool Party and Tangerine Tango Marker. In the center of the cross, I added a Basic Rhinestone Jewel.

To finish off the card, I used the Sycamore Street Ribbon, which is one of the Saleabration choices this year. I layered the image on Island Indigo card stock, and attached it to the base with stampin dimensionals.

Breaking Out the Red Glimmer Paper!

I am in LOVE with the Red Glimmer Paper, so I hoard it. I use it sparingly because I have 1 sheet left and if for some reason it’s ever discontinued, I will be sure to have ONE SHEET LEFT! I suppose Valentine’s Day is a great excuse to use something I love to make a special card for someone I love.

This is a clean and simple card that I made using the Ciao Baby stamp set from the Spring 2013 catalog. It coordinates with the Petite Curly Label Punch, which was FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration. I also got the Pretty Petites stamp free from SAB to coordinate with the punch.

The base is Crumb Cake card stock, layered with Early Espresso and Urban Oasis Designer Series Paper (retired). That pack of paper is one of my all time top 10 favorites–it’s beautiful. Good thing it’s a Digital Download available for My Digital Studio now!

For the focal point, I used Early Espresso Baker’s Twine and knotted both ends in a double knot, attaching it to the card with mini glue dots. Then, I colored direct to stamp with Early Espresso and Real Red Markers, and stamped on Whisper White card stock. I punched them out with the Petite Curly Punch.

The hearts are punched from the Red Glimmer Paper using the Heart to Heart Punch. I attached everything to the card on top of the Baker’s Twine with stampin dimensionals.

Make a Wish Birthday Cards

When I saw this make a wish stamp, I had to have it. Funny enough, it’s from the Make a Wish stamp set in the Occasions Mini 2013 catalog. I like it so much I made 2 cards with it! Actually 3 cards but I gave one away already before taking a picture!

First up is the card pictured above. I used markers to color different parts of the stamp different colors. I stamped it on Whisper White card stock and punched out the circle with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch.

The base is tempting turquoise, layered with chevron print paper from Rain or Shine Designer Series Paper. The strip of paper is Raspberry Ripple.

For the Basic Gray/Basic Black 1 1/4″ Two-Tone Grosgrain Ribbon medallion, I used the Jumbo Sticky Rounds. Apply the Sticky Round to the back of the Whisper White circle, then take your ribbon and stick the end onto the back of the card stock. Go around the circle, pleating and folding the ribbon as you go. I added a stampin dimensional to the center and a smaller 1” Circle on the back for added stability. Then adhere the medallion to the card base.

The next card I made is a smaller 3″x3″ square card. I used Basic Black card stock for the base, and another piece of the Daffodil delight chevron DSP from Rain or Shine Designer Series Paper.

This time, I used White Craft ink stamped on Basic Black card stock. Then, I paper pierced around the edge and used a white gel pen to connect the dots and give it a “stitched look”. The black card stock is layered on a piece of Whisper white with stampin dimensionals.

To finish off the card, I added a red button threaded with Bakers Twine.
