Expectant Mother Cards

Wonderful Moments Stampin' Up!

Hello Friend,

There's just something sweet about Expectant Mother cards and I love the pregnant mama stamp in the Wonderful Moments stamp set by Stampin' Up!.  We love to send baby cards, but why not send a handmade card before the birth of the baby?  We are expecting a new grandson in June, so this card will be mailed out to my sweet daughter-in-law, Bethany.

Pregnant Mama Card Tips

Everything is white except for a few accents to highlight the pregnant mama.

The added texture from the Ruffled Embossing Folder and the stitched rectangle bring the white to life.

Hint:  When coloring the mama, leave just a teeny bit of white to highlight her baby belly.

 

Wonderful Moments Stampin' Up!

Most of today's card supplies will be carrying over to the new Stampin' Up! Catalog, but the Ruffled Embossing Folder and the Night of Navy Gingham Ribbon are on the Stampin' Up! 2019 Retirement List and will only be available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST.  Want to make this card?   For your convenience, I've listed all of today's cards supplies at the bottom of this post.

Color Throwdown

Thanks to Color Throwdown for today's playful color combination of orange, yellow and blue.  For accents, I used Calypso Coral and Pineapple Punch Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots.  Night of Navy is my feature color.  I colored her dress Night of Navy and, just for fun, I added a bit of Night of Navy Gingham Ribbon.

 

 

Have a fabulous day,

Fable Friends Baby Card

Fable Friends Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Yes, I know that I have been crushin' on the Fable Friends stamp set.  I just can't help myself.  The bunny and the ducks are so stinkin' cute.  Today's Darling Baby Card sports the bunny from the Fable Friends stamp set and a Punch Art Picket Fence.

Watercoloring Peter Rabbit

Last week, I showed you how to color Peter Rabbit with Stampin' Blends. For today's card, I tried my hand at watercoloring.  With aqua painter in hand, I watercolored his fur with Crumb Cake ink.  His jacket was colored with Tranquil Tide Ink and his facial accents were colored with Powder Pink Ink.  The buttons were colored with Fresh Fig Ink.  Then, I splashed Balmy Blue ink around my bunny and behind my fence.  As a finishing touch, I splattered Fresh Fig Ink.

Making a Punch Art Picket Fence

To make my white picket fence, I punch 5 strips of Whisper White with my Classic Label Punch.  I then trimmed one end of each.  The bottom 3 vertical fence pieces were popped up with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.  Then, I adhered the 2 horizontal fence pieces.

To make the cascading flowers, I used the Bitty Blooms Punch Pack and 2017-2019 In Color Card Stock.


Freshly Made Sketches

A Big Thanks to Freshly Made Sketches for today's card sketch.

Fable Friends

Fable Friends Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Wow, coloring the images from the Fable Friends stamp set by Stampin' Up! brought me immense satisfaction!  I especially liked the ducks and the bunny, because they remind me of characters from Beatrix Potter children's books.  What's not to love about Jemima Puddle-duck, Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny?   


Fable Friends Stampin' Up!

I used the 3 little ducks stamp along with a treat cup to make these adorable Baby Shower favors.  How would you fill them?  I rounded out my project with Gala Gingham Paper and a heart cut with the Be Mine dies.  My ducks were colored with Balmy Blue, Flirty Flamingo, Mango Melody, Poppy Parade, Mint Macaron and Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends.


Fable Friends Stampin' Up!

The Happy Spring card is pure sweetness.  This time I used the 3 ducks stamp along with the larger duck stamp.  The stitched scalloped edge is a die from the Be Mine Framelits dies  and I featured the larger duck with ovals made with the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.  My parade of ducks were colored with Mango Melody, Smoky Slate, Flirty Flamingo, Balmy Blue, Pool Party, Mint Macaron and Highland Heather Stampin' Blends.

For inquiring mines, let me tell you a little about...

Jemima Puddle Duck

The tale of Jemima begins in a farmyard which is home to a duck called Jemima Puddle-duck. She wants to hatch her own eggs, but the farmer's wife believes ducks make poor sitters and routinely confiscates their eggs to allow the hens to incubate them. Jemima tries to hide her eggs, but they are always found and carried away. She sets off along the road in her poke bonnet and shawl to find a safe place away from the farm to lay her eggs.

At the top of a hill, she spies a distant wood, flies to it, and waddles about until she discovers an appropriate nesting place among the foxgloves. However, a charming gentleman with "black prick ears and sandy-colored whiskers" persuades her to nest in a shed at his home. Jemima is led to his "tumble-down shed" (which is curiously filled with feathers), and makes herself a nest with little ado.  Have you guessed who the charming gentleman might be?  Hint:  We have a builder punch and stamp set featuring this woodland animal.  This is where the story gets interesting.


Fable Friends Stampin' Up!

When I think rabbits and bunnies, I think carrots.  What do you think?  Doesn't the Calypso Coral gingham Sour Cream Container make fun carrots?  I fashioned my carrots with the Petite Treats Dies. 

Peter Rabbit & Benjamin Bunny

In The Tale of Peter Rabbit, Peter Rabbit wore a blue jacket, so I colored his jacket with my Balmy Blue Stampin' Blends.  After Peter Rabbit lost his jacket during a frightening encounter with Mr. McGregor, Peter Rabbit and his cousin, Benjamin Bunny, venture into Mr. McGregor's garden to retrieve Peter's clothes.

 
Fable Friends Stampin' Up!

Doesn't the little squirrel look handsome decked out in his sailor's outfit?  I simply colored him on a 3" x 3" card and lined the flap of my little envelope with gingham paper.

Project Supplies

As always supplies for today's projects and listed at the bottom of the post for your shopping convenience.  I didn't list all the Stampin' Blends, because I used so many.  You can find them all here.
