Baby Shower Gift

One of my lovely class ladies is expecting (very soon) and had a baby shower and this is my little gift for the little one. She is picking this up tonight at class so I can now show you.

I chose yellow and green for my colours as she doesn't know what she is having. The card uses a Crumb Cake base, a Whisper White mat, So Saffron and Nursery Suite DSP and some Pear Pizazz ribbon, all from Stampin' Up!. The pram is from Stampin' Up!'s Baby Bundle Stamp Set (this is a great stamp set to colour). Inside the card I added some of the little images in the corners.

In the box is a little rabbit, a classic pooh onesie, and some baby massage oil.

The box was made from a 12 x 12 sheet of Crumb Cake - scored at 3" on all sides. I then added some So Saffron Patterned Designer Series Paper and some Nursery Suite Specialty DSP and finished it off with some Pear Pizazz ribbon.

When Kathryn receives this, it will be wrapped in cellophane (I didn't want to squash bunny with a lid).

I want to play

Do you wish sometimes that you don't have to do anything else but 'play' - unfortunately that doesn't happen, for me Work is always getting in the way - LOL. For some reason everything at work has a deadline of the end of financial year (what's the deal, I'm not an accountant!) and it is approaching faster than I would like, aahhhh.

Anyway on the long weekend I decided to make a set out of a card that I created some time ago (see here).

The colours are Marina Mist and Baja Breeze, Old Olive and Certainly Celery, Rich Razzleberry and Rose Red, and Daffodil Delight and So Saffron.

These were so quick and simple to make.

Finally Back Creating

I know it has been a long time. It actually feels like ages since I have been able to play in my craft room but finally this weekend I was able to - yeah for long weekends.

For this set I pulled out a stamp set I hadn't used yet - Growing Green. As the creative juices were a little slow to get started I went with something simple.

I started with a base card of Whisper White cardstock and used Marina Mist, Wild Wasabi, and Rose Red cardstock. I clear embossed the image onto the coloured cardstock. On the Wild Wasabi and Rose Red cardstock I also used the masking technique. I then went around the outside of the image with the Versamark pen to add some more definition.

I used a strip of Crumb Cake and Whisper White to add the sentiment using the Curly Cute Stamp Set. I used my bone folder to add some curl and only adhered one end to the card.

I have a couple more things to share so will be back soon.
