Baby Boy Baptism Card

blue baptism

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.

Simply Wonderful {Faith in Nature}

Here’s another card I made with the Hostess set Faith in Nature stamp. The card base is Pool Party card stock, layered with a piece of old DSP I had in my scrap drawer.

The color combination was inspired by the Color Coach. For the main image, I stamped Whisper White with More Mustard ink for the flower, then colored in the sentiment from Friendly Phrases with Island Indigo and Lucky Limeade Markers.

That was layered onto Island Indigo card stock. Then, I used the cropadile to punch a hole at the top for a Polka Dot In Color Brad in Lucky Limeade and some Crumb Cake Seam Binding.

For Dads

Although this card was for Father’s Day, it can be used for Dad’s Birthday or any other special occasion. Since it was for my husband, I went with his favorite colors: Green and Blue (well he really likes green, but I added some Indigo in there for good measure).

The card base is new In Color Lucky Limeade (available July 1st), layered with Island Indigo (another new In Color) and Nursery Suite DSP in the Old Olive/White combo.

Across the front, I took a strip of Island Indigo and wrapped Twill Tape around it. Then, using the cropadile, I added some pewter colored Jumbo Eyelets to either side.

In the center, I used Take a Spin and inked up the stamp once with Lucky Limeade and another time with Island Indigo ink. Then I stamped it each time onto Whisper White and punched out the Limeade image’s inner circle with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch and hand cut the Indigo image’s outer circle very close to the stamped image with scissors. I added in a Game Spinner Hand and then popped up the smaller circle with stampin dimensionals. Finally, it was all layered onto Daffodil Delight card stock, punched with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch.

The sentiment at the bottom is from To a Classic, stamped with Lucky Limeade and Island Indigo Markers. I punched it out with the Word Window Punch and then layered it onto Island Indigo Modern Label Punch. That is also up on stampin dimensionals.
