Baby Congratulations

A new baby is on the way?  Celebrate with a card.  Today's card was designed for the expectant couple with happy baby news.   Do you go pink or blue?  Who knows?  Just go with it.

Zoo Babies


My Boy and Girl Tags were stamped with the Cuddles & Kisses Stamp set. And my question mark was stamped with the Notable Alphabet Stamp Set. My Patterned Giraffe is from the Zoo Babies stamp set.  Paper-Piercing is a stamp with the Festive Paper Piercing Pack.


Cuddles & Kisses


Whether the Baby is a boy or girl, it doesn't matter because "Babies fill your heart with happy". (Cuddles & Kisses stamp set)  Of course, with a message like that I needed a heart-Hearts a Flutter stamp set and framelits.

Secret Garden & Weekly Stampin' Up! Deals

Secret Garden Stampin Up

When I saw  that the Secret Garden Framelits were on the Stampin' Up! Weekly Deals list, I just had to see what an Autumn Secret Garden looks like.  Autumny Colors against a yummy Baked Brown Sugar Honeycomb are so rich and inviting. What do you think?  Can we enjoy a Secret Garden in the fall?

Secret Garden Flower Tips

  • My Primrose Petals Flower was stamped with Primrose Petal Ink onto Primrose Petals Card Stock then cut with the Secret Garden Framelits.  A Raspberry Ripple Dahlia graces the center.
  • My largest flower was stamped with Cajun Craze ink onto Crips Cantaloupe Card stock and cut with the Secret Garden Framelits.  Then I stamped the flower a couple more time onto Cajun Craze Card Stock and cut the centers.
  • I inked my final flower with Crushed Curry Ink and colored the center with my Chocolate Chip Marker and stamped.
  • All of my flowers were lightly sponged with Baked Brown Sugar Ink to make them pop.
  • The leaf is simply Old Olive Card Stock cut with the Secret Garden Framelits.
  • That's it folks! We have a beautiful Bouquet shouting the last hurrays of Autumn.

My Son, Jonathan, and my DIL, Julie, just celebrated their autumn anniversary.  This card's for them fashionably late.


Great news! During this festive week, there are no tricks here, only treats! Make sure you head over to my store to get your deals before they run out.
