Welcome To the World Little One - Welcome Easter

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you the card I made for Charles to send to a relative that me made a baby blanket for.  She's going to have a baby girl very very soon and he knitted her a super cute blanket.  So, he needed a super cute baby card to go along with it.  I used the Welcome Easter stamp set to create my card today.  Here's a look at my card.

I picked the Welcome Easter stamp set because it has such super cute images that can be used for not only Easter but for baby cards as well.  It also has a sentiment that's just perfect for a new baby.  I punched out three circles from the plaid pattern designer series paper from the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper.  I used a 2" circle punch for the top two and a 1 3/4" circle punch.  I layered the designer series paper on top of the whisper white cut 5 3/8 x 4 1/8.   I then traced the circles with a pencil lightly.  So that I knew where to stamp the super little creatures.
I stamped the three little creatures in tuxedo black.  I then colored each of them with my selected Stampin' Blends.  I started out by coloring the bunny with Crumb Cake, and I then colored the background of the circle with So Saffron.  I then colored the little lamb with Purple Posey and colored the background circle with Flirty Flamingo.  I added just a touch of the Rococo Rose blend to the bow tie, and crumb cake to the nose.  For the little chick I colored her in So Saffron, and Rococo Rose on the comb and pumpkin pie for the beak.  I colored the background of the circle in Purple Posey.  After that I added the designer series paper over the whisper white colored layered with a little liquid glue.
I added the card front to a Whisper White Thick Card base cut at 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2.  I added the panel to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I then stamped the sentiment to the inside of the card with Petal Pink ink to match the outside.  I added a few Champagne Rhinestones to add just a little bling to the card.

Blogging Friends February Blog Hop - Saleabration


Hello and welcome to my blog and this month's Blogging Friends Blog Hop.  This month we are featuring projects made with items you can earn for FREE with qualifying orders during Sale-a-bration.  Saleabration is the biggest promotion of the year!  For my project today I used the Happy Birthday To You Stamp Set which is a free Saleabration item, and the matching Birthday Dies (which are only around until supplies last or until March 31, 2020).  Here's a look at my project.

Tips & Tricks: 

I started out my stamping the cake from the stamp set in tuxedo black ink onto a piece of Thick Whisper white cardstock, I also stamped it again so that I could cut out the flowers.  I used my stampin' blends to color the cake, stand, and flowers.  I used Petal Pink, Mint Macaron, So Saffron, and Calypso Coral.  I then cut the cake and the flowers out with the matching Birthday Dies.  Once I had that done.  I cut out a stitched oval from whisper white cardstock and a scallop oval from Calypso Coral Cardstock.  

Happy Birthday To You Card

by Rick D. Adkins



I used the little sprinkle stamp in the set to stamp all over my Petal Pink card base (4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2) using coordinating ink.  I then cut a piece of Mint Macaron Designer Series paper from the Subtles collection (2 x 5 1/2) and attached it to a whisper white mat (2 1/4 x 5 1/2).  I then added a little of the Petal Pink Metallic Edged Ribbon to this piece before adding it to the card front.  I then placed the whisper white stitched oval to the scalloped oval with stampin' dimensionals.  I then added the cake to the ovals.  I used both the mini and regular size dimensionals to do this.  I then added the additional flowers that I cut out the flowers on to the cake with dimensionals.  This added more dimension to the card and additional details that gives the card a more impressive look than just with the stamped image.  

I then added a piece of whisper white to the inside of the card with the Happy Birthday Sentiment simply stamped in Petal Pink ink.  I also added the same sprinkle stamped image in petal pink ink along the left hand side of the inside whisper white piece.  To add a little sparkle to the card I added a few of the champagne basic rhinestones to the front of the card.
