Hello New Baby, Try Stampin' on Tuesday #314

The sketch challenge with Try Stampin' on Tuesday has a baby animals theme, but I decided to use an actual human baby.  The sketch is by Vicki          

I started by punching one end of two pieces of 1 5/8 by 2 1/2" pieces of Whisper White card stock with the angle top tag punch. The edges of both tags were sponged with Mint Macaron ink.

Tag 1:  A strip of Up and Away DSP was attached to the bottom end.  Three clouds were die cut with the Up and Away Thinlet dies and the edges were sponged with Mint Macaron. They were attached to the tag with a glue dot.  The baby was added with dimensionals.
This tag was added to the card front with tombo- at an angle.

Tag 2:  Some  Pear Pizzaz glimmer paper was die cut with the oval die in the Timeless Tags Thinlets,  This was matted with a Whisper White oval tag that looks like sunrays. The center sentiment was stamped first and then die cut using the same thinlet. It was added to the Pear Pizzazz glitter backing using dimensionals. This unit was added to the Angle top tag using dimensionals.
The entire tag was attached to the card front with dimensionals, slightly overlapping the other tag, again at an angle

A 1/4" Mink Macaron double bow was added to the tag fronts.

The card base is Mint Macaron, layered with Whisper White, and then a piece of Whisper White stamped with Mint Macaron ink and the background stamp "Brush Strokes"

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Moon Baby, That's the Tag, Brushstrokes Background
Inks: Black Memento, Mint Macaron, copics
Papers: Mint Macaron, Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz glimmer paper, Up & Away DSP
Accessories: Up & Away Thinlets, Timeless Tags Thinlets, 1/4" Mint Macaron ribbon, Angle top tag punch, dimensionals, glue dots

Now it is your turn to create something using this sketch.  As usual you have 2 weeks to make something.  When done, upload it to the Try Stampin on Tuesday blog or its Facebook page. While you are either site, take some time to check the work of the other designers and leave them some comments.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day to all who have Irish in their veins, as well as those who don't.  So, I hope "Green" has been your colour choice for the day.

Me, not so much.  I have been feeling "green" due to a virus which has caused a sore throat and a cough, limiting my movement from the couch to the couch.  Usually I don't succumb to viruses, and I have not even had a sniffle all winter - but my son was sick last week - and well, you know the rest.

Since I didn't have time to make a St. Patrick's Day card, I am posting a card I posted several years ago.

Some Treat Containers

Have a great day!

Diamond Fold On Stage Swap Card

On Stage is on April 8, in Toronto, just a little less than a month away.  Today I started working on my swap cards and got a good head start.
The hardest part of any swap is designing the first card.  After that it's all down hill or is it uphill.  It will take me a while to make a sufficient number of cards and I'll be working on them over the next couple of weeks.
I'm planning on making several different cards, but I'm starting on a Diamond Fold card featuring the stamp set "Circle of Spring"  I used the tutorial by Splitcoaststampers to do this.

Stamp: Circle of Spring
Inks: Black Memento, SU Markers (Mint Macaron, Sweet sugarplum, Daffodil Delight)
Papers: Whisper White, Sweet Sugarplum, Sweet Sugarplum glimmer paper, Sweet Sugarplum DSP (two patterns)
Accessories: Wondrous Wreath framelits, Pearls, dimensionals.

Stay tuned for more swap card designs!
