Welcome Baby Boy!

A friend of mine from England and his wife had a baby last week, so I needed another baby card; I modeled this one after Minder's Baby Shower card.

I seem to be into quick and easy right now.

Welcome Baby Girl!

I'm always glad to get a chance to use my baby stamps. My co-workers wife had a baby almost two weeks ago, and I wanted to make a card (my second card since last July!).

I CASE'd this card from My Paper Secret - unfortunately the pin I had did not go directly to the blog post and it is from two years ago. It was quick and simple - just cut the card base, layer, and bow, put everything together with dimensionals, placed a pearl on it, and voila!

Happy Birthday!

This is the first card that I have made since last - oh, July?  My husband and I separated around October of last year, and I had no motivation to make cards for Christmas (my favorite card-making holiday) or anything since then.  I kept buying supplies...hoping it would prod me...but so far, nothing.

One of my co-workers told me her 60th birthday is Thursday, and I forced myself to sit down and make her a birthday card, and it felt great.  It was fun to stamp again, cutting, stamping, putting things together (lining up word stamps, not so much!). 

This is CASE'd from Miriam Prantner's Birthday Balloons card.  I couldn't remember my co-workers favorite color, so I just picked pink, because it's a happy color.  It's the thought that counts, right?  It was very easy - just started with the lightest color (Pink Pirouette) at the bottom, stamped randomly up to the top (Blushing Bride; Primrose Petals; Rose Red).

Supplies (All Stampin Up! unless otherwise noted):
  • Paper: Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, Rose Red
  • Ink: Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride, Primrose Petals, Rose Red, Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Stamps:  Curly Cute, Hooray It's Your Day (Amuse Studio), Happiest Birthday Wishes
