Grey and Daffodil

Basic Grey, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White is very crisp and spring like. I'm looking forward to spring and seeing the daffodils and tulips outside my stamp room window! But today it's freezing rain warnings and staying warm inside!

The Tea Lace Doily is from the Spring Catalogue. I stamped directly onto the doily using Basic Grey. I think the best adhesive for the doilies is Glue Dots. I tired the Tombow Multi-purpose adhesive but it showed the hexagon shape through the doily so I won't use that again.

Supplies
Stamps: Beautiful Birthday, Bloomin' Marvelous (SAB 2013)
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Basic Grey
Paper: Basic Grey, Whisper White, Tea Lace Doily
Accessories: Rhinestones, Daffodil Delight Seam Binding Ribbon, Glue Dots, Big Shot, Hexagon Textured Embossing Folder

Two by Two

Isn't the Two by Two stamp cute? On Saturday I attended a baby shower for a friend and I made her this card. I used Black Stazon Ink so when I was colouring in the image with the markers the image wouldn't smudge. And the Cloudy Day Embossing Folder is the best background for this card!

Also gave her this cute Diaper Owl Cake. It was really easy to make and a very interesting way to give a friend some diapers, wash cloths, hooded towel and bib!

Supplies
Stamps: Two by Two
Ink: Black Stazon, So Saffron, Baja Breeze, Shara Sand, Crumb Cake, Rose Red, Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, Basic Grey
Paper: Rose Red, Whsiper White, Basic Grey
Accessories: Whisper White Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Subtles Designer Buttons, Whisper White Baker's Twine, Glue Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals, 1-1/4" Square Punch, Big Shot, Cloudy Day Textured Embossing Folder, Windows Framelits

Sailin'

The RMHC stamp set Moving Forward is perfect for baby cards! I made this one for a stamping friend who had a baby before Christmas.

Supplies
Stamps: Moving Forward, Sweet Essentials
Ink: Midnight Muse, Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit
Paper: Midnight Muse, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer Paper
Accessories: Midnight Muse Stitched Satin Ribbon, 2" Circle Punch, 1-1/4" Square Punch, Big Shot, Chevron Textured Embossing Folder, Windows Framelits
