Nursery Necessities meets Sending Love

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. 

Card Recipe:

  • 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.


I also have to highlight the fabulous new DSP - but the pic really doesn't do this gorgeous paper justice!117153L
