Good Morning! Welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I love to make baby cards and this is the first ones I’ve made in a long time. I’m using the Stampin’ Up! Wildly Happy cling stamp set for my card. Actually two cards, a blue one for a baby boy and a pink one for a baby girl.
We have a color challenge this week, and here is the color palette we are using:
I have chosen two of the 2019 – 2021 In Colors for my third color – the blue is Seaside Spray and the pink is Rococo Rose. I started the card by embossing a panel of Smoky Slate cardstock with the Brick and Mortar 3-D embossing folder and matting it with Seaside Spray / Rococo Rose. I adhered it to a Thick Whisper White card base with multipurpose liquid glue.
I took a strip of Woven Threads designer series paper and cut the bottom using the Banner Triple Punch. I used a Rococo Rose based paper for the baby girl card and a Seaside Spray based paper for the baby boy card. I adhered it to the brick embossed panel with snail.
I stamped the Mama and Baby elephant from the Stampin’ Up! Wildly Happy on a panel of Whisper White with Memento Tuxedo Black ink along with the sentiment. I colored the elephants with the Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends with just a touch of the Light Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend under the ears.
I cut the elephants out with the largest circle of the Stitched Shaped dies. I used the largest Scalloped Circle from the Layering Circles dies to cut a mat from Seaside Spray / Rococo Rose card stock and adhered it to the back of the elephants. I adhered the elephants to the card front with dimensionals and finished it off with a coordinating small faceted dot from the 2019 – 2021 In Color Faceted Dots.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the sweet sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Wildly Happy Stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a panel of Whisper White. I added a strip of the Woven Threads DSP to the bottom of the panel and adhered it to a Seaside Spray / Rococo Rose mat. I adhered it to the inside of the card with multipurpose liquid glue.
The images in the Stampin’ Up! Wildly Happy cling stamp set are so sweet with the mama and baby animals. The sentiments are just as sweet making this a wonderful set to celebrate a new baby!
