My Digital Studio Baby Girl Onesie Card

MDS-Baby Girl Onesie Card

One of the best parts of owning My Digital Studio is all the fun stamp sets, punches, and accessories you get with the program!   I don't have many friends having babies right now, so my actual baby stamp sets are quite limited.  Leave it to My Digital Studio to come to my rescue to create this adorable card.  I used the Stampin' Up!  Nursery Necessities stamp set, Nursery Designer Series Paper, Enjoy Every Moment stamp set, Delightful Dozen stamp set, plus lots of different punches and accssories.

The phrasing on the rectangle was actually from two stamp sets.  I cropped out the congratulations from the onesie section because I wanted to use the bolder congratulations from the Delightful Dozen stamp set on top.

I'm tickled pink with the results!  What do you think?

SUDSOL Blog Tour-Hearts and Hidden Treasures

Hello all! 

Today is the SUDSOL Blog Tour!  Our blog tour is featuring projects using the Sale-A-Bration and Occasions Mini stamp sets and products. 

Heart Framelit 3D Valentine Project

I am sharing a wonderful project from last weekend's Mom and Me Valentine's Day Stamp Camp.  I had three girls attend – who ranged in ages from 6 to 11.  This project was simple enough so the girls could easily recreate it for a Valentine's Day class handout.  All of the ladies loved it! 

The project features the new Heart Framelits from the Occasions Mini Catalog…it took me a while to open up this package and use it.  BUT I AM NOW HOOKED.  Oh, it is so much fun creating with these beauties! 

Here is the project we made:

2012 SUDSOL BLOG TOUR-Mom & Me Girls

Want to see a "Blinged Out" version of the project?  This one could be made for your child's teacher or maybe tucked in your sweetie's lunch on Valentine's Day. I embossed the back Pretty in Pink heart using the Polka Dots Embossing Folder – plus added some smaller Melon Mambo hearts before embossing the front Pretty in Pink heart.  I also added a backing to my phrase and colored the heart in with a Pretty in Pink marker and then topped it with Dazzling Details.

Heart Framelit-Quilted Heart Technique TUTORIAL

I teach a Technique Tuesday stamp class every month.  We did take December off, but I was ready to go tonight with a fabulous new technique. I taught my stampers how to do a Quilted Heart card.  Here is the finished card:

2012 SUDSOL BLOG TOUR

Supplies needed:

  • Big Shot and Heart Framelit Set
  • Designer Series Paper (I used Twitterpated)
  • Copy Paper
  • 1" Square Punch
  • Adhesive
  • Riding Hood Red Ink
  • Blushing Bride CS/Whisper White CS
  • Blushing Bride Pleated Satin Ribbon
  • Large Pearls
  • Sponge
  • Small Heart Punch

Instructions

  1. Cut the Scalloped Heart Framelit using your Big Shot and a piece of COPY PAPER.
  2. Cut strips of DSP (1-1/4" is wide enough to punch with the 1" punch).
  3. Center the first square in the center of the Scalloped Heart.
  4. Continue adding squares – pattern or no pattern – it is up to you!
  5. Add them to cover entire heart but be sure to adhere only the DSP to the heart – you don't want to squares to stick to your scrap paper.
  6. Center the next largest heart over where you'd like to cut out.
  7. Run it through the Big Shot.
  8. Use on card and embellish!  The card shown above is a 5" x 5" card.

Christmas Stockings by the Hearth Card

Hello!

Welcome to the SU Stars Blog Hop…you've most likely arrived here from Raissa's blog www.raissastamps.com or the main page www.su-stars.blogspot.com.

 If  you ever get lost along the way during the blog hop, you should go back to this main page to find the next stop. The theme of this blog hop is Holiday Hoopla!

Today I am sharing one of my cards from this week's Holiday Cards Stamp Camp.  My customers loved making this card.  Colors used are Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, and Whisper White.  The phrase is from the Delightful Dozen stamp set.

Stocking Punch Heart

 

The strips of the hearth were distressed with one of the inks from the distressing kit. Then the top piece was punched with the scallop border punch. Cherry Cobbler quilted ribbon is on the top of the hearth. The phrase from Delightful Dozen was inked in Garden Green.

The stockings are incredibly easy with our new stocking punch. The bows were made out of the Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine and attached with mini glue dots. Instead of threading the twine through the holes of the bells, the bells were also attached with a mini glue dot. The stockings were attached to the hearth with Stampin' Dimensionals.

To make the fire in the fireplace, all you need is the Stocking Punch and Early Espresso and More Mustard card stock.  Punch with Early Espresso once (the top of the stocking) and More Mustard three times (the heel portion).  You will cut the Early Espresso punch piece in half.  Now just place the pieces as shown above.

Thanks for stopping by!  The next stop on the blog hop is Denise Foor's blog http://www.denisefoor.blogspot.com/
