Hi everyone. Happy Monday night.
Tonight's card uses Nursery Necessities and the new Sending Love Specialty DSP. You can see my other cards using Nursery Necessities here. I needed to make a card to welcome Jenna - Karen and Raul's new baby. I am so thrilled for them and I know that Karen is crazy about Tigger... I didn't have a Tigger stamp... so I made her a girly baby card and have packaged up some Tigger goodies for Jenna's bedroom!
I used this week's sketch from the stamping411 team. I loved the way they had set the background papers - and thought they worked perfectly with the new Sending Love Specialty DSP.... LOVE this fabulously sparkly and interesting paper... and I mean interesting - in a good way!
Before we start with tonight's card, I would like to give a big shout out to Lynn - Lynn is the second person to send me cards to support my card drive. Don't forget, if you want to win your very own Big Shot - or up to $100 dollars worth of new SU products - of your choice - from SU.... join my card drive. You find details here on this card drive and the blog candy! Tomorrow, I will be highlighting some of the great cards that Beth sent to me for the card drive. So, thank you ladies... you ROCK!!!!
So here's Jenna's card
Isn't that pretty???? :-) Well, I think it is. I also managed to keep to my NY resolution... colors I don't normally use!!!!
So, let me give you the details on this card - and.... I managed to get my hands around my favorite satin ribbon from the new occasions mini! I love... love...love... this ribbon - it's just so amazing to work with.
- Very Vanilla and Pretty in Pink card stock
- Sending Love Specialty DSP (117153)
- Nursery Necessities stamp (113506)
- Epoxy Brads in Pretty in Pink from the new mini (117271)
- Pretty in Pink satin ribbon - from the new mini (117289)
- Medium Jewelry Tag Punch (love this with the Tiny Tags stamps!!!) (117190)
- Tiny Tags "baby" sentiment (118592 clear mount, 118091 wood mount). I was really blah about this set... until I got it and realized how many times I would actually use it! So, I'm so pleased that I did buy it!
- Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder (117335)
- Scallop Trim Border punch (118402)- one of the free choices with SAB and the co-ordinating scallop corner punch from the new mini (118870)
- I stamped the elephant in Rose Red craft ink and then embossed it with Iridescent Ice embossing powder. I then cut it out and placed it on the white background with stampin' dimensionals.
- I cut a piece of the Sending Love Specialty DSP on an angle - to match the sketch and paired that with a piece of Pretty in Pink DSP run through my Perfect Polka Dots impressions folder. I also cut that on an angle.
- I placed both pieces of DSP onto a card base of Very Vanilla and then wrapped a piece of the Pretty in Pink satin ribbon around the card.
- I cut the legs off one of the epoxy brads and attached it to the bow of the knot with about 4 or 5 mini glue dots! I really wanted to make sure it stuck!
- I punched a piece of 2 7/8" Pretty in Pink paper using my new scallop punch and the co-ordinating corner punch. My thanks to one of our fellow crafters on SCS LyndaLee28 for posting the sizes that she found co-ordinated with the Scallop Trim Border and Corner punches. It made it easier for the rest of us!!!
- I stamped the "baby" sentiment using Pretty in Pink classic ink onto a piece of scrap Very Vanilla and then punched it out with the Medium Jewelry Tag punch. I pushed it under the brad and secured it onto the mini glue dots that I had already placed there.
- A couple of Very Vanilla dn pretty in Pink matts behind the elephant... and the card was complete
Again, a card that could be created using any color scheme and could easily be made into a birthday card, an anniversary card, just by changing out the focal image and the sentiment from the Tiny Tags - seen below.
