Something For Baby

A "welcome baby" card is great to have on hand.  The buggy is from the Something For Baby stamp set with coordinating framelits. The little rubber duckie looks cute stamped on your envelope.  See the entire set now or on page 74 of the Annual catalog.


Card base –  Crushed Curry - 11’ x 4 ¼”, scored at 5 ½”. 

Scraps of Whisper White: one for buggy wheels with handle and another for carriage.  Small scrap for outside sentiment.

Best Year Ever DSP blue with white dots - 5 ¼” x 3”

Best Year Ever DSP with pinwheels – 5 ¼” x 1”


Sahara Sand for buggy wheels and handle

Crushed Curry for buggy carriage and sentiments
5 ½” Coastal Cabana Washi Tape from the Retro Collection on page 190 of the Annual catalog.

To stamp the wheels and handle a different color than the buggy, ink the lower portion of the stamp with sahara sand.  Wipe off ink that is above the wheels before stamping.  Use thinlit die to cut it out.  Stamp the buggy, cut it out with the thinlit die.  Lift the buggy above the wheels using Stampin' dimensionals.   Add a rhinestone to the wheel hubs and buggy bonnet.  Add a little bling to many project with Rhinestone Basic Jewels, #119246, on page 208 of the Annual catalog.

My story

I am having the time of my life with my adventure as an Independent Stampin'Up! demonstrator. For seven years I stamped at classes with three wonderful, talented demonstrators. All three demonstrators talked to me about joining their team. Wow, I missed alot of fun waiting for the "right time". I joined Stampin'Up! as a demonstrator in June, 2014. For 45 years I moved where my Dad or husband's work sent us. In all of the great locations I have lived, crafting and art were a large part of my life. Whether it was doll making in Japan, country crafting in Ohio or painting in California, I loved seeing something beautiful come alive from raw materials. I also enjoy spending time with my wonderful husband of 46 years, playing with our dogs, reading, needleworking, traveling and spending time with friends. Stampin'Up! has given me the opportunity to enjoy creating, sharing and teaching - three of my favorite things. And, best of all, crafting with a group of friendly, wonderful people.
