More Pink for a Baby Girl

The other day I posted a card I had made for a baby shower I am going to.  Today I am showing you the present I have to go along with the card.

This box is called a Gable Box and I have cased this from Paula Dobson who recently taught us how to make this in one of her classes.  I thought it would be ideal to put a few things for the new baby in.

Materials used are:
Card stock: Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, Very Vanilla
Inks:  Blushing Bride, Pixie Pink(retired), Regal Rose Marker
Stamps: So Swirly wheel, Baby Bundle
Accessories: Brads from Hodgepodge Hardware,Pretty in Pink 3.2cm Striped Grosgrain Ribbon and Dazzling diamonds

Pretty In Pink

This week at Just Add Ink we have been challenged to create  in monochrome which means using one color or colour family.  I have decide to use pink as I am going to a baby shower at the weekend and the baby is going to be a girl so that is  why I decided I would go Pretty In Pink for this card.  I also decided to enter this card in the SUO Challenge which was to make a baby card.


I used the Baby Bundle stamp set which I first stamped the cute little pram with versamark and heat embossed with  white embossing powder.  I then sponged with Blushing Bride and used the Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose Stampin' write markers to add detail to the pram and colour the other stamps.  I used the Scallop Border Punch to decorate the edges and added some Victoria Crochet trim and a heart shaped Bitty Button, both of which are available from the Summer Mini Catalogue until 31 March. I also added some Dazzling Diamonds to the hearts on the sentiment and the Bitty Button has been applied with a glue dot.

All this was stamped on to Very Vanilla card stock.  The card base is Pink Pirouette with a mat of Pretty in Pink card stock.

Just Add Ink # 50

Well this weeks challenge from the fabulous Just Add Ink ladies is a colour challenge. They are such an inspiration to us all. The colours they have chosen are:

So this is what I have come up with.  It is a birthday card for my darling daughter Anna who is 19 today. Happy Birthday Sweetie hope you are having a great day.  We did take her out for lunch.

I decided that I would also make it as a gate fold card (think that's what it is called) as I have seen these on other blogs and thought that it would be fun to try something I hadn't tried before.

This a look at what the inside looks like
                                                                          And a closeup look of the front

I have not used any dazzling diamonds for this card but instead have used Rhinestones and Pearls as Anna is a young lady who loves her bling and the So Swirly wheel is one of her favourites.  She loved it but did ask where was the dazzling diamond LOL.

Materials Used:
Stamp sets: Occasional Quotes, Curly and Cute, Punch Potpourri. So Swirly Wheel
Inks: Elegant Eggplant, Pear Pizzazz
Card stock: So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz, Riding Hood Red, Whisper White
Accessories: Basic Pearls, Basic Rhinestones, Boho Blossom Punch, Butterfly Punch, Scallop Border Punch, Beautiful Wings Embosslits, Sponging
