Welcome Baby

Hello everyone,
Heather here and it is my day to take over the blog and I also have baby on the brain as my husband and I are going to be grandparents! So I pulled out this adorable set from Raisin Boat Stamps, "Onesie, Twosie" (10038) and got to work.

I started with an A2 card base in the color Lettuce going for a gender neutral card and with a pencil I lightly drew a grid towards the top of the card. I then took the adorable and wonky picture frame stamp from the set and stamped it in black ink four times, rotating the stamp a quarter turn each time.  I then used the puppy, stick horse, ducky and lion and stamped them each into their own frame. When that was done I erased my grid pencil lines for a clean look.  At the bottom of the card I stamped the "Welcome Baby" from a stamp set in my stash in black ink towards the bottom right portion of the card base.  I liked the look I got from doing just this, but for this card I lightly colored in each image using colored pencils and added some glitter to the top with my Nuvo Clear Glitter Pen.  I colored each of the frames in a light grey with the pencils as well. I think this card would make great baby shower invites or be good at a gender reveal or even as a baby shower gift card, and it would be so easy and quick to mass produce.  Another added bonus is it is a one layer card, so postage costs if mailing would be reasonable.
I hope you have enjoyed my card today, hope you have a great day and please join in on our current challenge, I will link below to the mood board below.
See you all soon!

Happy Friday, everyone! Lisa from The Relativity of Paper sharing a card with a great message, Remember. I'm pulling out my go-to words, quick and simple, with this card. Maybe I should make that my motto. I did make this in a hurry yesterday. I've been battling a serious cold for two weeks and yesterday was the first day back in the craft room. My husband joked, you haven't been on your laptop but a few times, you are sick! I should have said REMEMBER who cooks your food, buddy! LOL Anyway, I think I'm on the downside of this mess and so glad. 

Using the Strokes of Pride Stamp Set  stamp the "streak" using red ink on white cardstock. Stamp the star on heat resistant acetate using versamark ink and blue embossing powder. Tip: Always remember to use anti static powder when using embossing powder and pre-heat your heat gun. Heat set the powder. Stamp sentiment using gray ink on white cardstock, add 3D mounting foam to the back of sentiment and decided placement on card then adhere to acetate. Flip the acetate over and add another piece of 3D mounting foam to the backside of acetate hiding it behind the sentiment, adhere to stamped card panel. Add enamel dots randomly on acetate adding 3D mounting on the backside of the acetate, hiding it behind the enamel dots and adhere to stamped panel. Center on a 4.25" x 5.5" card base. 

Stamp the sentiment "this nation..." inside of card.

This is a wonderful patriotic stamp set!

Tractor in Field Birthday Cards

Good Morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today.  The card I am sharing with you uses Raisin Boat's Homegrown stamp set.  I thought these would be great to send to family for their birthdays!
First, I created a panel with Broken China Distress Oxide ink and Walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink.  I then used Lucky Clover DO ink to stamp the corn stalks with my stamp platform.  The front row of stalks were stamped first, then I did second generation stamping for the back row of corn stalks.  The sentiment is from Raisin Boat's Happy Camper stamp set.  I then stamped the tractor from the Homegrown stamp set, colored it with colored pencils, and cut it out with my Brother Scan N Cut 2.
To assemble, I used the following adhesives:  ATG, Lineco Adhesive, and foam tape.  I embellished the cards with ribbon and black Nuvo Crystal Drops.
Remember, we have this Mood Board Challenge going on right now! Here is the inspiration photo for it. You can use the pictures, theme, and/or colors to enter.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
