It’s a Boy … Sneak Peek

Happy Saturday my Stampin’ Friends!

Hope this post finds you well and in good spirits.  We are having a beautiful day here in southeastern Wisconsin … we may even get to 40 degrees!  I’ll take this “heat wave” since they are predicting below zero temps in 2 days.

Today I have a cute little “Sneak Peek” card for you that not only gives you a sneak peek at the Occasions catalog, but also a Sale-a-bration item that you can earn free!

As I promised yesterday, I am going to show you a peek at the new designer paper “Watercolor Wonder” … there are so many beautiful patterns in there, I decided to showcase my least favorite~

I’m not to big on “splotches” … is that a word?  Anyway, I decided to challenge myself with my least favorite, but I must say that I love the way this turned out.  How cute for a baby card.  I know my baby is 30 something, but I still recall that little ones are good at making “splotches”.

Once I chose the paper, I cased a pattern from our Stampin’ Success magazine, and used the new “Banner Framelit Dies” to cut out a banner from the designer paper.

Next, I punched a banner from our Sale-a-bration banner punch, but it was a bit short, so I made it longer.  I took a picture showing how to do it, but because the product has not yet been released … I can only show samples and not the actual product.  So I will be sure to show you how I did it, after the catalog release.

I used the same stamp set as yesterday, “A Dozen Thoughts” and decided to use my “Stamp-a-ma-jig” to place the words where I wanted them on the banner.  I then roughed up the edges to create a bit more texture.

Then I just finished it off with a pretty little bow.
