A family friend is welcoming a baby boy into their family soon. This is the card I made for them. I got the idea for the shaped card from Sandy Allnock’s YouTube channel.

Details

Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I started by water coloring the small panel with dye inks. While that was drying, I stamped and water colored the dress. I used water color pencils for this. Then, I prepped my card base. I used the same dye inks to stamp the background as I did to create the water color panel. I did some rock and roll stamping to create the multi colored flowers. I adhered everything together and stamped my sentiment.

This banner is for the bridal shower that started the whole crazy stamping thing. After I made all the invitations and thank you cards, I knew I wanted the decorations to match as well. I started with this banner.

The whole banner

Details

Extra Details: I started by cutting the scalloped circles from some patterned paper on my Cricut machine. I also cut the white letters with my Cricut machine. I created each panel for the banner out of white card stock. I adhered the scalloped circles and letters to the panels. I stamped the floral images on each panel. I tried to make them look random and organic without making myself crazy. I also added a few bees for interest. After all the ink was dry, I hole punched the top corners and used white ribbon to attach them all together.

This is a wedding card I made. Lawn Fawn had just release the Happy Wedding stamp set. I loved the knot stamp in that set, but didn’t really want to buy the whole set just for that. So I used the twine that Lawn Fawn sends with your order to recreate the same look.
