An unexpected delivery!

My friend’s baby granddaughter, Frankie, arrived in the early hours of Sunday morning – rather unexpectedly at home!  Mother and baby are doing well, and they’ve nicknamed her “Pumpkin” as she was born on Halloween!  Bless her!

The lighting didn’t turn out too well when I photographed it, but here’s the card I made for her:

I cased one of my own cards I made for a recent Christening, and used one of my favourite card layouts, but made it more girlie with dazzling diamonds and a pretty pink bow!   It doesn’t show up too well on the photo, but the dotty pattern on the pram is all sparkly with glitter!  Yum!

Stampin’ Up supplies used:

cardstock: whisper white, pretty in pink; stamp sets: bundle of love, just perfect alphabet, in the stars (retired); inks: pretty in pink, soft suede; punches: ½” circle, word window, modern label; accessories: pretty in pink striped grosgrain ribbon (retired), gold brads, dazzling diamonds, two-way glue pen, blender pen, snail adhesive, mini-glue dots, stampin’ dimensionals, patterned paper from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by today

Christening wishes…

My friend, Clare, asked me to make a personalised Christening card for baby James, who is being Christened on Sunday.  This is what I came up with…

Hope you like it Clare, and that you and the family have a lovely time on Sunday.

Stampin’ Up supplies used:

cardstock: whisper white, bashful blue; stamp sets: bundle of love, just perfect alphabet, in the stars (retired); inks: bashful blue, soft suede; punches: ½” circle, word window, modern label; accessories: bashful blue stitched grosgrain ribbon (retired), gold brads, white gel pen, blender pen, snail adhesive, stampin’ dimensionals, patterned paper from my stash.

To make the blue “scalloped” edge to the white oval, I punched out circles in bashful blue using the ½” circle punch, and then adhered them to the back of the oval using snail adhesive.  I had to jiggle them around a bit so they fit the shape, but I managed it …just about!

Thanks for stopping by today
