Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge #11 Barnyard Babies Little Lamb Baby Card

Thank you for joining us for another Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge! We’re so excited to be sharing this hop with you. The products used are all available in the current Annual, or seasonal, Stampin’ Up!® Catalogues*. Simply use the buttons at the bottom of the post to keep hopping!

So today’s sketch is from the lovely Keren Howell….

Okay so today’s card was an easy one for me as we have a new baby in our family! This card is for the very lucky and very proud Grand-parents. I decided to go for Flirty Flamingo A4 Cardstock (cut at 4 1/8 inches and scored at 5 7/8 inches), this is fast becoming my favourite Pink in the colour families. I stamped the Little Lamb (sooooo cute!!!) image from the Barnyard Babies Stamp Set on to some A4 Shimmery White Cardstock in Basic Black Archival Ink. I love this cardstock, it is becoming a go to basic for me.

Taking my Flirty Flamingo Classic Ink and Smoky Slate Classic Ink I water coloured my image and out aside to dry. Then, with a piece of A4 Vellum (cut to 2 1/2 inches x 5 7/8 inches) I stamped the little lamb image in Versamark Ink and heat embossed with White Stampin Emboss Powder. I adhered this to my card base with some Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I punched out my little lamb with my 2 inch Circle Punch and popped it on my card front with some Stampin Dimensionals. Taking some more Shimmery White cardstock I stamped my sentiment in Flirty Flamingo ink  and punched it out using the new label punch. I also punched out a label from some more Flirty Flamingo cardstock and adhered these together with some multipurpose liquid glue and popped this up on my card base. To finishmy card off I added some Basic Pearls.

I am very happy with how this card turned out and it is so simple and quick to recreate! Don’t forget to hop along and see how everyone else got along with this month’s sketch!

Saturday Sketch Day Stampin’ Up Baby Bumblebee Card

For Saturdays posts I have decided to use this as an opportunity to take part in some sketch and card challenges.  I have always wanted to take part in challenges but have never got around to it so I am hoping this will encourage me to do so, whether it is a sketch challenge or a theme challenge I think it is a good way to keep the inspiration flowing.

This week I have taken part in the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.

FMS Final 176-001For my entry I used the Little Baby Bumblebee Stamp from the Spring and Summer Catalogue and created a new baby card.  I love bumblebee’s and this one is so cute!

I took a piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the baby bumblebee image in Memento Ink  and coloured the little cutie in.  I then die cut my coloured piece with one of the Framelits Circles Collection.

I took a piece of the Sweet Dreams Designer Series Paper measuring 9 inches x 2 1/2 inches (6.4cm x 22.8cm) and my 1 inch Circle Punch and lined it up so it only punches a semi circle shape out of the edge of the DSP to create a border along the bottom edge.

I then adhered this to my card base, a piece of Hello Honey A4 Cardstock cut to 7 inches x 9 inches (17.8cm x 22.8cm).  I then took some Hello Honey Quilted Cotton Ribbon and wrapped this around the top of my card tying a knot.  I adhered my coloured piece with some Stampin Dimensionals to the right of my card.  I then took 3 of the Sweet Dreams Designer Buttons and tied some bows with some Lined Thread and adhered them to the bottom left side of my card front with some Mini Glue Dots.

For the inside I took a piece of Whisper White cardstock 8 1/2 inches x 3 inches (21.5cm x 7.6cm) and stamped a sentiment from the B.Y.O.P Stamp Set in Hello Honey Classic Ink and popped this on the inside of my card.

With my leftover cardstock that was cut from the A4 piece of cardstock I made a matching gift tag.  The piece of cardstock measures 3 inches x 2 1/2 inches (7.6cm x 6.4cm) and a piece of the Sweet Dreams DSP measuring 2 1/2 inches x 2 inches (6.4cm x 5cm).  When I stamped my image for my main card I stamped 2 images and coloured both so I popped the second image on to my tag and embellished this with some Brights Candy Dots.  I also used some Hello Honey Ribbon to finish my matching tag.

So that’s my first entry into a sketch challenge hope this inspires you to have a go!

Stampin’ Up Sale-a-Bration Irresistibly Yours and One Tag Fits All Card Series New Baby Cards and GIVEAWAY!!

This is my 5th and last instalment of my Irresistibly Yours Speciality Designer Series Paper Card Series.  For todays cards I made two new baby cards, one for a baby girl and one for a baby boy.

For both cards I took my usual piece of the Sale-a-Bration Irresistibly Yours Speciality Designer Series Paper measuring 5 5/8 inches x 3 7/8 inches (14.3cm x 10cm) and for the baby girl card I sponged on some Strawberry Slush Classic Ink and then blended in some Blushing Bride Classic Ink and Pink Pirouette Classic Ink.  For my boy card I sponged on some Costal Cabana Classic Ink and blended in some Pool Party Classic Ink and Soft Sky Classic Ink on my Irresistibly Yours DSP.

For the card bases I used a piece of A4 Strawberry Slush A4 cardstock for my girl card and a piece of Costal Cabana A4 Cardstock cut at 5 7/8 inches (14.8cm) and scored at 4 1/8 inches (10.5cm).

I created the triple layered tag embellishment using my Note Tag Punch, and  four pieces of some Whisper White cardstock on to which I stamped the “New Baby sentiment and baby duck image” image from the One Tag Fits all Stamp Set and the tag border stamp in Blushing Bride Ink and  Pool Party Classic Ink.  I coloured my images and popped them on to the co-ordinating cardstock tag pieces and the other stamped Whisper White pieces with some Stampin Dimensionals.  I sponged the edges with some Pink Pirouette ink and Soft Sky Ink,  attached some Pink Pirouette Seam Binding Ribbon and attached it to my new baby girl tag and some Costal Cabana Ribbon from the SAB Embellishment pack for my baby boy tag and adhered them along with my pieces of Irresistibly Yours DSP to my card bases.

I finished off the card fronts with a sacattering of some sequins from the 2013-2015 In Colour Sequins.

For the inside I took a piece of Whisper White cardstock measuring 5 5/8 inches x 3 7/8 inches (14.3cm x 10cm) and stamped a sentiment from the SAB Simply Wonderful stamp set and then I stamped some accents in the 3 co-ordinating Inks from the Perpetual Calendar Stamp Set to finish off the insides.

So that is it, my first ever mini series is all done and I hope I have inspired you to try out the gorgeous Irresistibly Yours DSP and experiment with some inks.  For those of you that have not yet managed to get your hands on any or have used it all up like me I have a special giveaway to celebrate my first ever card series.  For your chance to win a pack of the SAB Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper, the SAB Simply Wonderful stamp set and yes some of the lovely Irresistibly Yours Speciality Designer Series Paper you only have to do a few simple things!!
