TCC78 Hello Baby



Hi Friends!!


I just love all of the fun pastel colors, the sweet stuffed animals and the cat figurine and plate in this sweet inspiration photo that Lesley found for us! I decided to use the new Stampin’ Up! Cat Punch and Quilt Builder Framelit™ Dies to create my Freestyle Collage/Shabby Chic card.

I also incorporated the As You See It #158 "Doily Dreams" Sketch Challenge and the Joy of Sets #006 -“Letter T” Challenge into the design (I used Teeny Tiny Wishes).

If you have not had a chance to do so, I hope you will find the time to check out the rest of the wonderful Design Team cards at The Card Concept as well as the entries at the other challenge sites- fabulous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

1). Trim a piece of Whisper White cardstock, mount onto a piece of Pool Party cardstock, trim again and mount onto a piece of Pink Pirouette cardstock. Mount the entire panel to the Extra Thick Whisper White card base.

2). Die cut a piece of Pool Party cardstock with a stitched rectangle die and mount onto the card front.

3). Create the quilt block using the new Quilt Builder Framelits™- I used retired Stampin’ Up! designer papers- Crushed Curry (from an old hostess pack), Pool Party and Pink Pirouette along with Whisper White cardstock.  I cut four of the quilt dies and pieced all four onto squares of coordinating cardstock (for this card I used Whisper White as the frame and base).  Add a white tea lace doily behind the quilt and adhere the strip of retired Pool Party ¼” stitched satin ribbon with the pink button embellishment.  Mount the entire quilt assembly onto the card front with dimensional foam.

4). Use the Cat Punch to punch out three cats- one from Pink Pirouette cardstock and two from Whisper White cardstock.  Layer the pieces together and mount onto the card front with dimensional foam.

5). Ink the “Hello Babby” sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes with archival black ink, stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock and create the fishtail banner with the retired Hexagon Punch (or by hand).  Mount the sentiment onto piece of Pink Pirouette cardstock (allowing just the end to peek out), tuck the end under the Cat Punch and adhere to the card front with dimensional foam.

Stamp Sets:  Teeny Tiny Wishes

Ink/Mediums: Versafine™ Onyx Black Ink

Cardstock/Paper: Whisper White, Extra Thick Whisper White, Pool Party, Pink Pirouette; retired DSP- Crushed Curry, Pool Party, Pink Pirouette

The pastel quilt is beautiful! I like the special touches you've added such as the sweet pink peeking out from the sentiment, the multiple bow with button and twine bow. It collectively screams out love and warmth. Thanks so much for joining us again at As You See It this week.
