Good morning! Today’s card makes me chuckle. My husband is very supportive of my card making, but he teased me about saying “welcome baby” three times. He said there would be a small market for those needing a card for triplets. My intent was an enthusiastic welcome for ONE baby. Time will tell, if it’s used for one baby or three!
The whole triplet idea began with this week’s CAS(E) this sketch.
For my three objects, I found the cute, little bird in the Well Written die set. The bird was perfect for my baby card in the cardstock colors of Blushing Bride, So Saffron, and Pool Party. I placed the three birds on Dimensionals atop a Rectangle Stitched die cut, which is also on Dimensionals.
The background of Whisper White cardstock is adhered to a Thick Whisper White card base. Rather than using an embossing folder, I used the words, “welcome baby” to create the embossed effect. The words are from the same die set as the bird, Well Written. I cut three of each word from Thick Whisper White cardstock, and glued them in place.
In the first photo, you can see the envelope flap, decorated with a piece of Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper, so it’s ready to send.
Thanks for stopping by today. Let me know if you know of someone having triplets! Check out all of the other words the Well Written die set has to offer. Just click on the picture in my Product List below.
This month the Kre8tors Blog Hop is all about Valentines and Love. Hearts are wonderful for making Valentines, but they are just as wonderful for making wedding cards. Today I’m sharing a white on white wedding card, with just a touch of color.
My Thick Whisper White heart is from the Be Mine Stitched die set in the Occasions 2019 catalog. After cutting the heart with the die, I embossed it with the Lace Textured embossing folder, which takes it to a new level of “wow.!”
TIP: I was careful to place the heart, so the embossed design would be symmetrical.
The white branch behind the heart is made with a favorite, Petals & More die, also cut from Thick Whisper White cardstock.
How do you like the hearts of color? They were made with a die from the Be Mine Stitched die set, which I used for cutting a stencil. Then, holding the stencil in place, I Sponge Daubed Pool Party ink across a lower portion of the art piece.
Before adhering the art piece to the Thick Whisper White card base, I attached some Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon. It seems perfect for a wedding card, doesn’t it?
The sentiment, “Congratulations,” is from the Petal Palette stamp set, stamped in Black ink, and cut with a Petals & More die. This was raised on dimensionals, as was the heart.
I finished the inside with a sentiment from the Better Together stamp set, “All the Best for a future filled with love!”
The heart was stamped in Pool Party ink with a stamp from Meant To Be, and cut with a Be Mine Stitched die.
I embossed the envelope flap with a Petal Pair embossing folder for added detail.
After a sprinkling of a few Iridescent Sequins, my wedding card was complete.

First Frost is a wonderful, holiday, stamp set, that is carrying over to the new year. Thank you Stampin’ Up! It’s beautiful foliage and flowers are great for any time of year.
Today, I’m using the First Frost stamp set, and Frosted Bouquet dies, with Laurie’s Paper Players color challenge.
This wedding or anniversary card began with a sturdy framework of a Basic Gray card base, topped with a layer of Smoky Slate cardstock, which I used a Stitched Rectangle die for cutting. The next size smaller, Rectangle Stitched die, was used for the Whisper White layer that I embossed with Layered Leaves.
The plaque was made with two Frosted Bouquet dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set in Basic Gray ink on Whisper White cardstock, and layered it on Smoky Slate cardstock. After adding dimensionals, I placed it on the embossed layer.
I wanted the foliage and flowers to have a delicate look, so I decided to stamp the images from First Frost on Vellum cardstock. The two flowers are Melon Mambo, and the two pieces of foliage are Basic Gray.
TIP: The ink doesn’t dry as fast on vellum, and can smear. Stamp a few extra, so you can test for dryness.
Once the vellum pieces were dry, I used Frosted Bouquet dies for cutting. I used Tombow Liquid Glue for adhering parts of the foliage, and it doesn’t show at all. The flowers are on a single dimensional that I placed in their centers.
I’ll decide the inside sentiment when I know the recipients, because there are several great options for a wedding or anniversary in the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.
The final touch was the row of pearls.
