So Happy For You Baby Card

I really like to make cards with a specific person in mind, so when a friend of mine asked me to make a card for a friend of hers that is pregnant with a baby girl, I got inspired right away. This is the card I made for her, and I'm so happy with how it turned out! :-)

This is a larger card, so it was a little bit tricky to stamp the background. I think I had to stamp it three times to cover the whole card base. I stamped the Hero Arts Tiny Flags Background with Memento Luxe ink in Rose Bud and clear embossed it.

Then I stamped and clear embossed the baby images from my favorite baby stamp set, also from Hero Arts, on pink card stock. The gold embossed stars are from a great set from Mama Elephant.

The sentiment is from an old Hero Arts set, and is stamped in the same ink as the background on a label from a beautiful EK Success punch. Finally, I added some extra shine with a Studio Calico mist. Below you can see the embossing and the beautiful shine that the Studio Calico mist gives.

I also stamped the inside of the card and the envelope to match.

Make sure you check back on Friday, because I will be having a giveaway! Yeey! :-)

Happy Balloon Card

Today's card is made with just one stamp set, the Whole Lotta' Happy set from WPlus9. First time I saw it, I knew I had to have it! :-) I love the balloon and star images, and the set has so many great sentiments.

I love the large "happy" stamps in this set, and I've used the one with a shadow on this card. I stamped it in Memento Luxe Sweet Plum ink and clear embossed it. The shadow is stamped in Hero Arts Silver ink.

For the balloons I used three colors of Memento Luxe inks, covered them with the Wink of Stella clear glitter pen, and added a thick coat of Glossy Accents. I love how they turned out! :-)
I made the background by stamping the stars in Hero Arts Soft Yellow and Silver inks.

Have a great day!

Gold & Pink CAS Washi Tape Card

I've been on a real gold kick lately, and for my third card I'm using gold with a touch of pink to make this clean and simple birthday card.
[Card #1 Masculine Washi Tape Card and Card #2 Masculine Love Card with Washi Tape Hearts]

The sentiment is heat embossed in gold and the pink strip is vellum colored with a pink Copic marker. The sentiment comes from the Hero Arts Hooray set, which was part of a giveaway that I won on Janet's blog. Thank you so much, Janet! :-) You should really check out her blog, she's so talented, and right now she's been playing with washi tape as well!

To make the background I added strips of my favorite gold washi tape to the card base. I love how it turned out and how easy it was to create!

Masculine Love Card with Washi Tape Hearts

My second card is also a masculine one, this time with punched out washi tape hearts.

I stamped the background and the heart in different blue inks from Hero Arts. For the hearts I chose some washi tapes from my shop that I though would matched well. To anchor the stamped heart, I added a strip of the With Love Washi Tape.

How to make washi tape heart stickers
To make the hearts, add strips of washi tapes to parchment paper and use heart punches to punch out the shapes. 
Tip: If you're using larger punches, make sure your strips overlap a little so the shapes will not fall apart when you go to add them to your card.
