Okay, confession…I am totally smitten with the following colors…Pool Party and Pretty in Pink. Sorry, had to say it. Here is another invitation idea, or sweet card for a shower or new baby welcome.
Today is the LAST day to get your hands on this sweet little Elephant stamp. I have used it for SO many projects and still have more ideas. You maybe tired of me using the same supplies, but they just work. If you lay out all the creations together they look like a matched set, which is exactly what I want for the Shower. The theme has just come from the colors.
We are still discussing maybe a Vintage Circus theme, but I am looking to just keep it even simpler, just a color theme for baby. It's a few more weeks till Jessica knows if it is a boy or girl. Once we know the final plans and ideas will be ready to go.
So remember this Sweet Vintage Baby Card here? I was playing with a lot of the same stamps, inks, colors and supplies. The layout is just a little variation on the theme. If you flip the cards around you can see they are almost by not quite the same.
The elephant stamp is from the Sale-A-bration (Free with $50 purchase) Patterned Occasions is stamped VersaMark Ink, and heat embossing with Pool Party Stampin' Embossing Powder. Ribbon embellishments include, 5/8" Flower Trim, Pretty in Pink Scallop Dots Ribbon, and bit of Linen Thread tied in a bow.
The card base is Crumb Cake Card Stock with a layer of Polk-a-Dot Neutrals Collection in Crumb Cake Designer Series paper that comes in a stick of 40 sheets. You'll find I used a Basics Pearls Jewels to add more detail too.
All the edges are sponged using Sponge Daubers and Crumb Cake Classic Ink. The Precious Baby tickets are from the Spring Catalog That's the Ticket stamp set. One is stamped in Pool Party Classic ink on Whisper White, and one on Pink Pirouette in VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with White Stampin' Embossing Powder. They are perfectly punched with the Ticket Duo Punch. And among the other punches I used the 2-3/8" Scallop Circle and 1-3/8" Circle Punch.
