Stamps: Punch Bunch (retired), Itty Bitty Bits
Paper:  Whisper White , Wisteria Wonder
Ink: Wisteria Wonder
Accessories:  Itty Bitty Buttons, Itty Bitty Circle Punch, Swiss Dot embossing folder


I decided to combine this weeks Just Add Ink’s theme challenge, Just Add Baby and Clean and Simple’s sketch challenge.  I started with a base card made from Whisper White cardstock, to which I added an embossed piece of Whisper White cardstock, followed by a strip of Wisteria Wonder.  I then stamped the welcome baby from the Punch Bunch stamp set (retired).  To make the tags, I trimmed around the  stamped image and then adhered it to some Wisteria Wonder cardstock.  I then made a panel out of Whisper White and Wisteria Wonder cardstock to which I mounted the letter B panel and the Welcome baby tag.  I then stamped some images from the Itty Bitty Bits stampset and punched them out with the Itty Bitty Circle Punch.  I finished off by adhering the images with foam pads and added some Itty Bitty circle buttons to Wisteria Wonder strip.

This week at Stampin Royalty they have a wonderful colour challenge.  Looking at the colours, I thought it would make a nice and bright baby card. 

I also decided to use the Sketch from CardPatterns as I thought it would be perfect for what I had in mind for the baby card.

I started with a 14 cm x 14 cm base card made from Pacific Point cardstock.  I created layers of Whisper White and Pink Pirouette cardstock and then added four 1 1/4″ Pear Pizzaz Squares.  Next,I adhered a Pink Pirouette ribbon that I tied off with a grommet.  I adhered the layers to the base card and stamped the branch and one of the birds from the Cheep Talk stamp set.  I finished off the card with a sentiment from the Best Yet stamp set.

 For this week Inkspiration Challenges sketch challenge, I decided to make a baby card.  My inspiration came from Makeesha baby news, as well at the fact that my nephew’s wife is having a baby in April.  Baby news is always exciting to hear.  It seems like a lifetime ago when my children were babies, they are now almost 13 , 10, 9.  For my card, I started with a base card made from Pear Pizzaz cardstock.  I then added a layer of Square Lattice embossed Whisper White cardstock.  Next came a strip of Elegant Eggplant Patterns DSP and then two strips of Whisper White cardstock that were stamped with the Spot On Jumbo roller and Pear Pizzaz ink.  I then used the Ovals Die to cut out a series of Whisper White Ovals and Perfect Plum Ovals.  On the medium Whisper White oval I stamped the sentiment ‘for baby’ from the Little Hellos (retired) stamp set. Using Pear Pizzaz ink, I stamped the turtle from the Fox and Friends stamp set and then trimmed around the Turtle.  I adhered the turtle to the Whisper White oval using foam pads and then adhered it to the large Perfect Plum oval.  To finish off the card, I adhered the ovals to the base card and then punched out 3 circles using the cropadile.  I placed the circles in the top right corner.  I like to use this technique when I have run out of matching brads.

Clean and Simple have a new sketch this week. With my card, I decided to make a baby card using Whisper White cardstock and Pink Pirouette cardstock and ribbon. I started with a base card of Whisper White and then I trimmed a piece of Whisper White card stock to be a bit smaller than the front of the base card. I embossed this piece with a Swiss Dot embossing folder and adhered the embossed card to the front of the base card. I stamped the Giraffe from the Wild About You stampset using Pink Pirouette ink, on a piece of scrap Whisper White cardstock. I then punched the Giraffe out, using 1 3/8″ circle punch and  punched a scrap piece of Pink Pirouette using the Scallop Circle punch.  I adhered the 1 3/8″ circle to the Pink Pirouette scallop circle. I then used the small hole punch on the cropadile to punch a hole on either side of the giraffe’s neck so that I could tie a small piece of Pink Pirouette ribbon.  I then adhered two strips of Pink Pirouette striped Grosgrain ribbon to the base card and then adhered the circles.  I finished up with stamping the Small Wonder sentiment from the Whimsical Words stamp set, using Pink Pirouette and two pink button brads.  Unfortunately the sentiment does not show up very clearly on the photo.

Clean and Simple Stamping have a new sketch this week.  I decided to use the sketch to make a card for my boss.  His son’s wife had a baby yesterday and I thought I would a make card to congratulate his family on the new arrival.  With the card, I started with  Baja Breeze cardstock for the base of the card.  I then used a piece of Whisper White card stock, that I embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dot embossing folder and used the SU Scallop Border punch to punch one of the edges.  I adhered a light blue double stitch ribbon to the whisper White cardstock.  I used Baja Breeze ink to stamp the Giraffe from the Wild About You stamp set, which I then cut out and adhered the to the Whisper White cardstock.  I decided to use one of the sentiments from the  Best Yet Hostess set, but when I went to stamp the wording, using Night of Navy,  I accidently partially stamped the wording . 😦  I  improvised by stamping the greeting on Whisper White and then punched it out using the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch.  I used the circle sentiment to cover up my partial stamp.  I think it looks okay.


Stamps: Best Yet, Wild About You
Paper: Whisper White, Baja Breeze
Ink: Baja Breeze, Night of Navy
Accessories: Pale Blue Double Stitched ribbon, Scallop Border Punch, 1 3/8″ Circle Punch, Swiss Dot Embossing Folder
