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.
