Baby Card for the Twins!

 

You might remember me sharing a Project Life album I made for Stephanie, our friend having twin girls (see that post here).  We wanted to give them some cute clothing for the babies, too, so when we gave Stephanie and her husband the additional gift, I gave them this card for their twin baby girls!

Does this ever happen to you ... you see a card and decide to copy it.. but then when you finish, it's just about nothing like the original idea??  Well... I started out thinking I'd use the Zoo Babies card idea below, and then I totally changed it up and used the baby bears from the Bear Hugs set!!

 I loved the cute little wagons with the baby bear die cuts, and added Basic Gray Candy Dots to the 1/2" black circles to look like wheels.  I also used my Project Life journaling marker to draw on the wagons and draw the little strings to make the wagons look like they were tied together.

 The bears and matching framelit dies are available at a 15% Discount! But only until May 31!  Click on the product bundle photos at the bottom of this post to purchase them in my online store.

The background is Flirty Flamingo Cardstock (new on June 1st!) embossed with the Elegant Dots embossing folder.  The wagons are punched out using the Decorative Label punch in Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach cardstock (both to be released in the new In Color Collection on 6/1/16). 

I added a strip of flowered designer paper from the new Affectionately Yours pack and also some Flirty Flamingo ruched ribbon.  Customers can purchase all these new items on June 1 in the new catalog.  Do you need a catalog? Let me know.

I was going to put the little stamped/die cut bows "in their hair" but it didn't look right to me.. so I put them on the wagons and I think it's totally cute!

 

The Twins are here!  Stephanie had the twins about 6 weeks early.. just under 5 pounds each and everyone is doing fine!  I am so excited to meet Jennifer and Jessica soon!

Oh, and I wanted to share this fun project with you .. .over the weekend I had a New Catalog Stampin' Day with my Luv 2 Stamp Group at Cindee's house, and while everyone shared and created projects, I took photos with my new Zinc Polaroid Instant Printing camera and added them to some Project Life pages I brought with me!   My son gave me this cool little camera for Mother's Day and it's so awesome!  It prints out 2"x3" photos, and I brought Washi Tape with me to adhere the photos to the pages.  I went home with a 2 page spread from the event all completed!

Stunning Black and White Floral Card

 

Wow.. do you need a great idea for a handmade wedding card? This is it!  The Botanical Builder flower framelits from Stampin' UP! die cut all in Whisper White cardstock and layered onto a Basic Black Card!

 

Black and White Stampin UP! Botanical Gardens flower card with Elegant Dots embossed die cut.

 

My friend Joy saw this flower card idea on Pinterest and taught me how to make this!! 

She die cut Whisper White cardstock using the Lots of Labels framelits, and embossed it with the Elegant Dots embossing folder.  After adding that to the folded Basic Black card, we added lots of die cut flowers.  The flowers and leaves are all die cut with the Big Shot using the Botanical Builder framelit set, shown below and available HERE online.

Did you notice that we stamped some of the leaves with Sahara Sand ink with the coordinating Botanical Blooms stamp set?  That added just the perfect amount of contrast!! It's a photopolymer set, so seeing through it and stamping the leaves is really easy!

I love all the layering.. some flowers are adhered with Snail adhesive, some with Glue Dots and some with Stampin' Dimensionals.. that's a great way to get lots of depth!

For a POP of glimmer, we punched 1/8" circles of Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper for the flower centers.. so pretty!  You could also use Wink of Stella.

You could try this on a Gold card, Cherry Cobbler Card, Pink Card.. gosh.. most any color! It would be stunning no matter what!

Ours is a top folding 4-1/4" x 11" piece of cardstock so that we could tie the ribbon around the card easily.

Last Chance to get this Stamp Set!

 

I'm not sure if you feel this way, but sometimes I feel like the Hostess sets in the back of the Stampin' Up! catalog get overlooked.  I particularly LOVE this Best Thoughts set (probably because I love to color) and if you love to color, too, this is a great set to have in your craft room!

  Best Thoughts Stampin' UP! Hostess set - hydrangea flower colored with Wink of Stella glimmer pen and Calypso Coral ink. Card by Patty Bennett

 

I know it's hard to see in this photo, but I colored with my Wink of Stella glimmer pen and you can SEE THE VIDEO TUTORIAL here for how to do that technique.

I think you can see the Wink of Stella Glimmer a little better in this photo:

Remember my "left-overs" bin of die cuts and tags that  I shared with you here?  Well, that butterfly and greeting were in that box, so I decided to add them to this card!

 I also added just a strip of paper that was left over on my desk to the left side of this card... I like it when left-overs can be repurposed!!

 

Take a look at the hostess sets below.. these are all available for any orders over $150 - you earn hostess $$ to spend on any order over $150 and you can use those hostess $$ to buy any of these items!
