Something for Baby – Girl Hanger Card

In a houseful of men, I don’t get to use pink very often…that’s one of the reasons why I love card-making.  I can use pink to my heart’s content!

Here’s a baby girl card using Something for Baby!

Aren’t our candy dots perfect?

Polka Dot Pieces Sunflower Birthday Card

Polka Dot Pieces was one of the first new stamp sets I purchased from the 2013-2014 Stampin’ Up! Catalog.  I’m just a sucker for polka dots.  I created this card using this set and the Label Love stamp set for the greeting.  Happy sunflowers lift my spirits!  I embossed the sunflowers with VersaMark and white embossing powder and then I used my inkpad and a sponge dauber to reveal the design (emboss resist technique).  The candy dots are so easy to work with too!  Isn’t this a perfect late-summer or early fall birthday card?

Zoo Babies Faux Shadowbox Card

One of the cutest stamp sets in the new catalog has to be Zoo Babies.  Those little animals are perfect for a baby card.  Here is one using the faux shadowbox technique:

I used a marker to color in the saying (masking out part of the phrase).  A Round Array stamp set was used as the background for the phrase.  I love the combination of Smoky Slate and Marina Mist (and you know that I LOVE the Polka Dot DSP).  When I punched out the circle for the main image, I did punch out both the Smoky Slate and the DSP at the same time (never punch out two pieces of cardstock at the same time).  The DSP is a lighter weight so it worked just fine.  Here is what I did with that punched out piece:

I used it as the inside greeting.  Cute, cute, cute!
