Using Tape to Change A Sentiment

It's A Girl 2 stampin365.com

Hello friends, how are you today?

Today I have a fun tip for the Endless Birthday Wishes stamp set.

When I needed a baby girl card, I realized that Endless Birthday Wishes set would do the trick. I simply took the “it’s all about” and placed a piece of tape over the letters to change it to “it’s a” to go with the “girl” stamp. (The set includes a “boy” stamp, too.)

I then inked it up, removed the tape, and stamped it. If you are new to this technique, you may be surprised at how easy it is!

Now I have an adorable baby girl card and I didn’t have to buy another stamp set!

Have you used this technique? Do you have any favorite presto, changeo stamp stories, using tape? If you do, I hope you will share them with us!

Thanks for stopping by today. Until next time…

 

Happy stampin’ friends!

Baby Gift Box- Artisan Design Team Hop

Michelle Long April 2016

Welcome to another Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team blog hop- I’m so glad you’re here!

Our delightful assignment for today included the gift box punch board and a “Perfect Packaging” theme for babies, brides or moms, so for my project, I chose to make a baby girl gift box.

The Circle of Spring wreath and the adorable bunny from the Made With Love stamp set go together so well.

The bunny is perfect for watercoloring, but for the wreath, I had better luck with blender pens. In both cases, I used ink squished into the lid of my stamp pads and watercolor paper.

I added a Blushing Bride lid to the Shine On box base and silver foil doilies to give it a bit more shine. Now I’m all set for an upcoming baby shower gift!

Easter Lamb For Baby

Easter Lamb Baby Banner

Hello, friends! How are you today?

Here is a fun idea for the adorable little Easter Lamb stamp by Stampin’ Up! He is just the perfect way to welcome a new baby into the world. Last month, I created this baby shower collection and hadn’t had a chance to show it to you yet, so today I thought you might like to take a peek.

This Easter Lamb baby banner went together easily with the little lamb alternating in Blushing Bride and White. The Sketched Dots Tag A Bag Gift Bags were perfect for the banners and I used the Simply Scored tool to create the rosettes. The “welcome baby” comes from the And Many More stamp set. I used it to create fun straw tags, too.

After that, I stamped the napkins with the little lamb. Don’t you just love it when everything matches? You can find a complete supply list below.

If you saw the last Stampin’ Up! Artisan Blog Hop, you probably noticed several other fabulous design team members thought of using the lamb for baby, as well.

It’s always so fun to have more than one use for a stamp. Wouldn’t this little guy be just as cute in blue? In fact, I may have to create something with him again very soon!

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you will leave me a comment and let me know what you think. I always love hearing from you!

Happy stampin’ friends!

Thankful Forest Friends Baby Card Close Up

Hi friends!

Today I have a fun sneak peak for you from the new Stampin’ Up! holiday catalog. This stamp set is called Thankful Forest Friends and it was designed for fall and Thanksgiving, but when I saw the adorable little bunny for the first time, I just knew I had to stamp him in pink.

I added him to the inside, too. Isn’t he just the cutest little guy?

Hello Baby for Cardabilities

Hello Baby 3

Recently, I found a beautiful challenge blog called Cardabilities and I felt inspired to try out the beautiful scrap book style.

Here is the lovely sketch:

Isn’t it pretty? I had been wanting to use the little pink roses in the Artisan Embellishment Kit and when I saw this sketch, the card quickly fell into place.

The roses are just beautiful.

And the soft pink is just perfect for a baby girl.
