Bright & Beautiful Precious Baby

Erin had a baby shower last weekend.  Family pitched in and sent a gift and this is the card I made to go with it.  I love this star set and this baby is definitely precious.  And he is a boy so I had to use blue!  Lost Lagoon to be exact.  And some gray.  Smoky Slate.  Love those 2 together.
The sets are Bright & Beautiful, That's the Ticket and Trust God.  Ink is Lost Lagoon, Soft Sky and Smoky Slate.  Cardstock is Smoky Slate, Soft Sky, Lost Lagoon and Whisper White.  The patterned paper is the All is Calm Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I know!  It is holiday paper.  It's so versatile.  The stars are cut with the Stars Framelits and the smallest center is colored with the Chalk Marker.  Other things used are Banners Framelits, Lost Lagoon Ribbon and Ticket Duo Builder Punch.
Scroll down.  I posted earlier today!

Have a great day!

Catching up!

Slowly I have been catching up on my stamping.  Lately we have been working a lot on the house.  But I have holed up in the stamp room a bit.
My favorite things are shabby, lace, doilies and more shabby.
This card I used the I Love Lace, Gorgeous Grunge and Chalk Talk stamp sets.  Colors are Lost Lagoon, Soft Sky and Very Vanilla.  The ribbon is Lost Lagoon Silky Taffeta and the lace is Venetian Crochet Trim.  And pearls.  LOVE it.  And the paper doily is crumbled up and then sponged.

Here I used the sets Petite Petals, Everything Eleanor and Label Love.  The flowers are punched with the Petite Petals Punch.  The 'just for you' piece is cut out with Apothecary Accents Framelits.  The ribbon is Blushing Bride Cotton Ribbon.  The doily is crumbled, sponged and folded.  And then more of that lovely crochet trim.  The background is Natural Filter Paper that is run through the Big Shot with the Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder.  Unfortunately you can see the adhesive.  I need to figure something out for that.  blech  The pearls are colored with Blushing Bride Blendabilites.
Other than seeing the adhesive I love these cards.  LOVE them.

Have a great day!

A Birthday and Creative Crew Challenge

One of the challenges for the Creative Crew for September is the Catalog Focus ~ Stampin' Dimensionals.  CCREW0914CF  This card was for David's birthday and the paper is absolutely lovely.
Isn't it gorgeous?  The Under the Tree Specialty Designer Series Paper is in the Holiday Catalog.  This paper is cardstock weight.  Perfect for boxes or little containers.  I loved it for this card.  It was perfect.  See that ribbon?  It is wonderful.  Cherry Cobbler 1" Sheer Linen Ribbon.  I love it.  The card base is Baked Brown Sugar.  The twine around the ribbon is also Baked Brown Sugar.  I stamped on Whisper White using markers.  Baked Brown Sugar, Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso.  The stamp set is Amazing Birthday.  The sentiments are held on using dimensionals.  Yes!  The catalog focus!

Have a great day!
