I apologize for being so MIA the past few months. We've been busy selling our wintering home in AZ and buying a new one in the same 55+ community. Then I was kept busy finding a new live in caregiver for my aging parents so they can continue living in their home. Now I feel caught up in my personal life and ready get back to my addiction; STAMPING of course!
My last post was a shower card for our Godson, Ryan and his wife Monica. Guess what? Ryan and Monica have been blessed with a healthy little girl named Rebecca Grace last week. She is very petite and delicate and absolutely beautiful! Another prayer answered! So of course I had to go shopping to buy her some girly clothes and needed a new baby card. This is what I came up with. My card was inspired by Cindy Elam, a fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator. Please check out her blog at: http://heartsdelightcards.blogspot.com/2014/03/sweet-baby-girl.html Just copy and paste her blog site into you browser if this link doesn't take you to Cindy's blog.
One thing to note is that the banner stamp set I used is retired (oops) but you could easily substitute the banner punches in Crisp Cantaloupe and Strawberry Slush card stock! (Both these card stock colors are retiring in June so hurry and place your order for them with me!) Also, I used the gathered Crisp Cantaloupe and Strawberry Slush ribbon but I think if you substitute the lace I'm listing in my supply list and dye it with your stamp pads in those colors, you'll have a beautiful alternative. I'm sad to report the Perfect Polka Dot Embossing folder is on the soon to be retired list but of course you could substitute any of the newer Embossing folders. Personally, I think the next time I make this card, I'll use the Decorative Dot Embossing Folder. It might just be even better! What could be better than a new baby born in spring? Lots of signs of spring here in the Northwoods of WI. Happy stamping! I promise I'll resume my frequent blog posts again.
