Long retired, but still SO sweet!

Image
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…

A friend of mine just got married, and even though it's still a big secret (Shhh!) I had to make her a little card. The inside corner is also stamped with the "It's time to celebrate!" sentiment stamp from the same A Little Birdie Told Me stamp set.

I haven't used this set much and I really hope it's not going to be on the Retiring List next month because I like it quite a bit and it has oodles of potential - I've just been too busy to create! I can hardly wait for summer break when I can hit the ink every day!!

My PSP is not working, and so I've not been able to use my watermark. Gah! This is a little 5.5 x 5.5 card I made for a coworker who just had a baby. I just couldn't get a good picture of the rattle - but it has some Dazzling Diamonds on it and was just too cute! :)
