Congratulations On Your Sweet New Arrival

Congratulations On Your Sweet New Arrival

This card features stamps from the “Baby Talk” set by Stampin’ Up (retired).  I masked off the greeting that was part of the carriage image stamp, and I cut the greeting stamp I actually used in half so I could use the two lines separately.  Nothing like a little stamp surgery to get your heart racing – lol!! (I almost always take my rubber stamps off their wood blocks and remount them on cling foam so I can use them with my stamp positioner; I occasionally cut the stamps themselves, although I usually have to work myself up to that!!)

The joy fold card base and decorative panels were cut with (my trimmer and) the “Angel Side Circle Card Die” set which is by Creek Bank Creations.

The inside sentiment is from the “Cuddles and Kisses” stamp set by Stampin’ Up (retired).

The card stand (that will be included with the card) was cut with the “Card Stand Die” which is also by Creek Bank Creations.  The faux ribbon was cut with Poppystamp’s “Grosgrain Ribbon” die.

Thanks for checking out my card project!

  1. Cute card! Love the layout. Glad you performed stamp surgery as the greeting looks perfect split. The crib image is cute with the phone cord hanging out of the crib.


  2. Cute card. I sometimes have trouble performing stamp surgery, but sometimes it’s necessary to get the most use out of a sentiment. It works great here.


  3. Lisa, this is lovely! I rarely cut my stamps, as the couple of times I have I was not thrilled with the result. I just cover the part I don’t want when inking. I love that pretty faux ribbon and the fun joy fold. Great card.


  4. Sweet baby card. The image is adorable and love that layout with the circle flap. Lol about your stamp surgery. I completely understand as I on occasion do the same thing to me sentiments.


  5. I’m always terrified to cut my stamps but do it on occasion and then worry I’ll lose the pieces. Cutting yours has certainly added some versality to your sentiment. Fabulous little baby card, soft and pretty and just right for a little girl arrival.
