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!

I am thrilled to tell you that I am taking part in the Pootler’s Design Team Challenge this month! Myself and four of my fellow Pootler’s will be creating a project every Thursday through June using the same stamp set sent to us by none other than the lovely Pootles herself!

So this month’s stamp set is the Balloon Builders set. To be honest this stamp set had crept past me in the catalogue but after a lovely swap I was given at Onstage Telford and seeing some fun projects on Pinterest it made its way on to my wish list, so I was super excited when I received it from Sam, happy days!!

For this weeks project and with the launch of our brand new catalogue yesterday I decided to also showcase the gorgeous new In Colours 2016-18 by creating a set of birthday cards stamped in our new colours along with the co-ordinating cardstock and absolutely gorgeous Ruched Ribbon.

Taking five pieces of Whisper White A4 Cardstock (3 7/8 inches x 5 5/8 inches) I stamped the main larger balloon image in each of the new In Colours across my Whisper White piece, firstly 1st generation stamping and then 2nd generation stamping and so on.

Then using the Happy Birthday sentiment, which fits snugly in the balloon shape, I stamped the darker balloons using Versamark Ink and heat embossed with White Stampin Embossing Powder on the Emerald Green and Dapper Denim pieces and the others in Silver Stampin Embossing Powder.

Breaking out my new In Colour 2016-18 Stampin Write Markers I drew on some strings for my balloons. Using some more new goodies I wrapped a piece of Ruched Ribbon around my card front and tied it in a bow (sort of). I then adhered this to my card bases in each of the new In Colours with Stampin Dimensionals.
