Gift Cards

G’day Stampers,

I was asked at a Market I did a couple of weeks ago if I could create some Baby Gift Cards in Lemon, Pink, Blue & Mint.  I love creating this size card.  They always look so very cute!  These are some of the samples I emailed Bernadette.

1.  Patterned Occasions (Retired)


2.   Something for Baby


3.  Baby, We’ve Grown

Speedy Recovery

Our new year didn’t start off the best this year as one of my uncles had a heart attack.  It was very lucky that he new what was happening, rang the ambulance, opened the front door & collapsed in the kitchen.  He is ok, but he did give us all a big 003ll-blogscare.

Today’s card is one which was created especially.  It is a stamp set “Patterned Occasions” from SAB 2013 & one which I’ve kept.  Since I wanted to use something other than a tree, boat, etc, I thought this would be perfect.  I also wanted to use colours that were a little different, so I consulted my Colour Coach.

I tore a piece of Whisper White CS prior to embossing with the Square Lattice EF, before adhering to a piece of Pear Pizzazz & finally to the Base Card – Early Espresso.

I masked the wording from the stamp with a bit of Sticky Tape, inked the Band Aid with Sahara Sand, took the mask off & stamped onto a scrap piece of Whisper White Card.  I repeated his 2 more times before cutting around the images & adhering to the Card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment was stamped direct onto a piece of scrap Whisper White Card in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  To do this, I masked the image, inked, took the mask off & then stamped.

It was punched with the Word Window Punch prior to adhering to a piece of Early Espresso Card which has been punched with the Modern Label Punch & adhered to the Card with Stampin’ Dimenisonals.

A very simple 5 minute card, but one he loved.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’
