Congratulations … It’s a Girl!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

It’s so exciting when we are blessed with a grandchild or a “great” … they just fill our hearts. So today I made a quick & simple Congratulations … It’s a Girl card. It would be just as easy to make an It’s a Boy card too because I’m using the Bright & Beautiful Designer paper!

This is the same designer paper I used yesterday and WOW, this pack has 48 – 6″ x 6″ sheets with 12 different patterns. This is the perfect party pack with the watercolor washes, stripes, stars, confetti, and more, you will be able to create cards and more for any occasion.

I started with the Bubble Bath base (8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ scored and folded at 4-1/4″) and then chose my designer paper to match … I thought the one with the little pink bubbles/dots would be cute, and on the other side is the ombre pattern you see. I did cut one piece to 4″ x 5-1/5″ and the other to 4″ x 1-3/4″, all from the same sheet.

Once I secured those two pieces together, I added a strip of the Sweet Sorbet Metallic ribbon to hid my edge and to create some texture and a little bling for our new princess. (No … the are no new little girls blessing our family, but there will be a little boy in the near future ❤ ) Now let’s attach the card front to the base, and I just did that with my Stampin’ Seal. I used the Liquid Glue to attach the ribbon.

I created my greeting using the Alphabest stamp set, and then die cut it using the Stylish Shapes dies. I used the circle because of the little circles in the paper but because of the ombre style paper. I added a little bow to that with a Mini Glue dot and popped it up with the Stampin’ Dimensionals. To finish the front, I added 3 of the Berry Burst Tinsel Gems/4 pack.

On the inside, I used a piece of scrap designer paper and then ran the ribbon on the inside to. This was layered onto a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Basic White cardstock. The “Congratulations” stamped in Bubble Bath comes from the Wonderful Thoughts stamp set.

This cute It’s a Girl card is so easy to make, I just hope that delivery will be just as easy … we’ve been there!! lol Thanks for taking a time out from your holiday weekend to take a peek.

Have an amazing rest of your weekend.

Here is a list of ingredients that I used to create today’s card ….

What’s YOUR favorite In Color?

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I am highlighting the NEW 2023-2024 In Colors. Here you can get a close up look at them. I am using the New “Crafting with You” bundle … wow, this is fun to play with. I have much more playing to do!! lol

Let’s begin with the Boho Blue …

Each of my cards are made exactly the same so you can get the “real” effect of the color! I began with a Basic White base and then I stamped onto my In Color card front (Boho Blue) with the coordinating In Color ink.

The next card is the Pebbled Path ….

After stamping the “color on color” (which is an old technique I still use a lot) I stamped the In Color floral piece and greeting, both of which are from the “Crafting with You” bundle.

Next up is the Moody Mauve ….

Once I had the greeting and flowers stamped onto the white in the coordinating ink, I die cut them using the Stylish Shapes dies. These dies are so versatile and a must have in your stamping supplies.

Speaking of die cuts, let’s take a look at that adorable scissors ….

This little cutie is pretty easy to make. I die cut one out of Silver Foil and a second set out of Basic Black. Using my Paper Snips as an example, I cut the black handle part to look like my Paper Snips!! I then used the Liquid Glue to attach the black scissor tops .

A Glue Dot was used to hold the two pieces of the scissors together and then I popped the little black circle into the circle area of the scissors. Easy peasy!

Next up is the Wild Wheat ….

Not one of my favorites to start with, but I appreciated it much better when using it with the Designer Papers that coordinate with this color! Who knew!!

The last of my 2023-2024 In Colors is the Copper Clay …

I love this color, it’s so pretty and we were in need of a rich earth tone! Now, to finish off my cards, I used the 2023-2024 In Color Dots … I wanted to show you how beautifully they coordinate with the cardstock and ink.

Which of the NEW 2023-2024 In Colors is YOUR favorite. I’d like to know, and you can just leave your answer in the comments below. Thank you.

I have a list of supplies for you below, including the “Multi-packs” of the In Colors for your convenience.
