Sweet Ducky Baby Card

embellished event baby card above

I was inspired by the sweet gift box featured on page 41 in the catalog to create this ‘Happy Baby Card’.  I stamped the duck pull toy from the Embellished Events stamp set on Crumb Cake cardstock with Chocolate Chip.  Then after inking up the stamp with Daffodil Delight, I colored the beak with a Pumpkin Pie marker and stamped on Whisper White.  The little yellow duck was trimmed out with my paper snips, adhered and popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The duck square is  layered on matching Chocolate Chip cardstock with a delicate scallop border along the bottom.  To create the scallop border, first trim off the bottom border of the layer.  Then using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch, punch out a strip of paper ribbon slightly larger than your layer.  Adhere your paper ribbon under your  main image, and mount the whole piece to the Chocolate Chip layer.  Finally, trim your ribbon even with the sides with your paper snips.

The card base is So Saffron cardstock cut to a traditional 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ size.  After folding to a 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″, I used the Scallop Trim Border Punch along the right front before adding the Baja Breeze layer on top.  The Baja Breeze cardstock was cut to cover the front of the card leaving the scallop border on the right exposed.  Before adhering this to the base, I ran it through the Big Shot Die-cutting machine with Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder and tied the Victoria Crochet Trim around it.

I was so tempted to add Crystal Effects to the duck for a glossy finish or add buttons and brads, but I resisted the temptation to gussy-it-up too much.  I love the soft classic feel of this baby card!

Apothecary Art Birthday Card

apothecary art birthday flower card 2 The Natural Composition specialty paper is a perfect backdrop for the bright Melon Mambo label.  I hope you can see the beautiful glossy, raised note pattern on this paper.  I used the decorated jar on page 137 of the Stampin’ Up! catalog as inspiration for this card.  Do you need a catalog?  Send me a note and I’ll get one out to you.

To create the label I inked up the midsize Apothecary Art stamp with Wild Wasabi and then went over the border with a Chocolate Chip marker before stamping on Whisper White cardstock.  The stamped label was cropped out with the Big Shot Die-cutting Machine and Labels Collection Framelits.  I layered the label on Melon Mambo cardstock which was also die cut with a framelit a size larger.

To make the flowers I punched out the four-petal flowers from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack and curled the petals to the center.  I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to glue to flowers together and to adhere the flowers to the label.  To finish the flowers, I added a bitty adhesive-backed pearl to the centers.

The happy birthday sentiment was stamped on Chocolate Chip cardstock with Whisper White Craft ink and embossed with white embossing powder for a crisp look.  The ends were flagged with the 1″ square punch.  For tips on creating banners and flag ends, watch this short video.

Stampin’ Up! Apothecary Art Gift Card

Apothecary Art black & white Gift card

This simple little gift card has a classic black & white color scheme.  Measuring 3″ x 3″, I made this card quickly with my Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.

I started by stamping the ‘for you’ label from Stampin’ Up! Apothecary Art stamp set in White Craft ink on Basic Black card stock and embossing it with white embossing powder.  Then I pulled out my super-hero Big Shot, cut out the label with the Labels Collection framelit and embossed the white background with the Fancy Fan Embossing folder.

I used the framelit once again to trim out this piece for the inside of the card, giving me a clean spot for writing a happy message.
