Happy Friday!!! We found out the gender of our Lil Ziggy right before Christmas and shared it with family! Of course I couldn’t forget about all of you. Baby Ziggy is a….
Do you know yet??? I used the Baby Moon Stamp Set and Stampin’ Blends to create this card! The greeting was punched out with the New Scallop Circle Punch from the Occasions Mini Catalog. Then I layered it onto a Pretty Label Punch. Next, I layered this onto Daffodil Delight cardstock and added some Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon around the bottom. This was all layered onto a Melon Mambo card base!!!
Yep, it’s true!!! Little Ziggy is a girl and growing well!! She looks strong and healthy! We are very excited and I was surprised because everyone was guessing Boy and I was convinced!!!
For the inside of the card, I added a piece of Whisper White cardstock (4″ x 5-1/4″). I added some silver washi tape from the Year of Cheer Washi Tape from the Holiday Mini Catalog (retired). The alphabet set I used is also retired (sorry). I used the Sophisticated Serifs Stamp Set. Alphabet Stamp Set are fabulous and those are one thing that I don’t get rid of when they retire! Any alphabet set would work!
I had a lot of fun making this card and it is super special. If you would like to check out a little Video Clip I created from of the first half of the pregnancy, check it out below or click here!!! Give it a thumbs up if you liked it and let me know if you want me to share more about my baby crafting projects!!
Happy Tuesday!!! This is a technique I have shared before but I have some more fabulous samples to share! The Stampin’ Blends are super fun to color with and easy to get lots of cool shading!! Check out these adorable little pigs….even pigs can fly!
How cute is this little piggy?!?! Adorable! And the best part is that the wings have Wink of Stella on them so the perfect little shine!!! Eeee Thank you, Janet, for this amazing idea! I love what my stampers come up with during Stamp Club!
I started with a Whisper White card base and layered on a piece of Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper (4″ x 5-1/4″). Next, I stamped the images from the This Little Piggy Stamp Set in Memento Black Ink. Then, I colored in the piggy with the Stampin’ Blends. I used Pink Pirouette for the pig, Smoky Slate for the wings and Crumb Cake for the feet!
For the coloring, I always start with the dark Stampin’ Blends Marker and do an outline. Next, I fill in with the Light Stampin’ Blends Marker. Then I go around the overlap edge and swirl in a circular pattern till it blends together. If you stay away from the center, then you will get that light center and darker edges look. Don’t worry this takes a little practice and each one will always come our differently. Also, it’s all based on your preference too!! Just play with it and have fun!
Look at that amazing Wink of Stella on the wings!!! Isn’t it just stunning? I love it!!! After coloring, I layered this piece onto Daffodil Delight. Then I added a little loop of Night of Navy Crinkle Seam Binding to the edge under Stampin’ Dimensionals and added it to the card front!!!
