Long retired, but still SO sweet!

I love making baby and wedding cards - there is just something dear to me about sharing a celebration so absolutely precious with a handmade token of love. This stamp set has been retired for several years, but I still pull it out all the time because I love the whimsy of the images.

If you wanted to recreate this card with a current SU! stamp, you could use Bitty Birthday (pg. 43*), Greetings Galore (pg. 52), Fun & Fast Notes (pg. 54), Year after Year (pg. 60), or Just Celebrate (pg. 8 in the Occasions Mini Collection 2008 Catalog). To skip the candles in the cake images, you could mask it or just ink the stamp with a Stampin' Write Journaler so that you could still do the water coloring without the ink smudging.



Materials (all SU! unless otherwise mentioned)

Card stock: Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White
Stamps: Sweet Treats, Love Matters (both retired - sorry!)
Ink: Staz On Black
Other: SU! markers, Blender Pen, Crafter's Tool Kit (paper piercing), sponge, 2-way glue, 5/8" Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon, 1/4 " Pretty in Pink grosgrain ribbon, Dazzling Diamonds, Snail Adhesive, Stampin' Dimensionals
