Another Baby Girl

Posted in Baby, Challenges, Simple at 9:11 am by happygiggles

Today’s challenge at Splitcoast was the inspiration challenge.  One of my favorites!  We were to take inspiration from this website featuring parties in a box.  Just add Cake.  We were encouraged to use the safari theme, but were allowed to use a different party box if we wanted.  Since I don’t have anything that I thought would be suitable for a safari theme, I went with the baby shower box.  I really liked the napkins and invites which are neopolitan icecream coloured.  This is what I came up with!

I thought the card called for simple since I wanted the colours to be the main focus.  I almost didn’t add the ribbon and the bling, but I’m glad I did in the end!  Since this card is pretty simple I think it explains itself.

Recipe: 

Stamps:  So Many Scallops 
Paper: Very Vanilla, Pretty in Pink, Close to Cocoa
Ink: Chocolate chip
Accessories: Crystal rhinstones, pink grosgrain ribbon, scallop punch

Thanks for looking!

Sweet Baby Girl

I’m not sure if you remember me talking about a card that I didn’t want to show you or not, but I will show it to you now, because I redid it!  I like it much better.  Actually I sold it too!  (Well, my wonderful Mom did when she took a bunch of my cards to her office!)

Pretty cute huh?  To redo it, I took the center pieces off the ivory base I had it on before and put it on the pink base.  All because a sentiment I stamped was crooked!  Such a perfectionist I am!  So I believe this is definitely a card for a new baby girl.  There’s a lot of pink!  I started with a Pretty in Pink base, then added some very Vanilla, some polka dotted paper, more Pretty in pink, then some more Very vanilla with  a scalloped edge.  I added a bit of Stickles to the Sweet One layer.  The final touches were the bronze brads and the dew drops. 

Thanks for looking!

Stamps: So Many Scallops

For Baby

Posted in Baby, Challenges at 6:36 pm by happygiggles

 I love Sunday’s at Splitcoast because it’s the featured stamper challenge day!  This week happened to me Amy from Pickled Paper Designs.  I just love Amy’s cards.  All of them!  It was so hard for me to chose just one to case, but I ended up going with this one:  Live Your Dream Thanks.  This is what mine ended up being: 

I changed the blue and basically reversed the colours.  A friend of mine is expecting a baby boy in June so I thought I would make this for her using my new baby stamp from Stamping Bella.  Isn’t it cute?  I believe everything else is pretty self explanitory 

 Recipe:

Stamps: baby from Stamping Bella, background stamp from Boho Backgrounds
Paper: Soft sky, Always Artichoke, Barely Banana, Whisper White  
Ink: Versamagic (spanish olive), soft sky
Accessories: white eyelets, corner rounder, soft sky double stitched ribbon, SU! rub on
