“Create With Kathe” For Thursday 17th July 2014


Thursday we had a full house, with every seat taken!
After my very large Stampin’ Up! order arrived, I was itching to try out some new stamps sets!
First on the list was my new favourite “Kinda Eclectic”, I simply love this stamp set!
And of course I couldn't resist the “Something For Baby” stamp set and matching “Baby’s First” framelits …

Project 1 “Kinda Eclectic” Card


The card base is “Marina Mist”, with the inside insert of “Naturals White”.
Ink Pad colours are Early Espresso, Old Olive, and Crisp Cantaloupe.
The sun is embossed in Gold Embossing Powder, with “Champagne Glimmer Paper” for the centre of the Sun.
The butterflies are first stamped in “Crisp Cantaloupe” on “Blushing Bride” cardstock, and then punched with the “Elegant Butterfly” and “Bitty Butterfly” Punches.
On the front of the card 3 small Basic Pearl Jewels are added to the centre of the butterfly, and on the inside of the card Linen Thread is used to create the antennae of the butterfly.


A Candy Dot in Blushing Bride anchors and completes this card.
Gotta say, ♥ this stamp set!

Project 2 “Something For Baby” Card


The card base is “Natural White”, which has been stamped with the “Zoo Babies” stamp set in either “Marina Mist” + “Daffodil Delight” for the baby boy card, or “Strawberry Slush” + “Daffodil Delight” for the baby girl card.
The front of the card is then embossed with the “Alphabet Press” Embossing Folder.
Bakers Twine in Early Espresso it tied in a knot at both ends, then adhered with Glue Dots to form a clothesline.


The Banner Punch is used to punch tiny banners in alternate colours of Marina Mist” + “Daffodil Delight” for the baby boy card, or “Strawberry Slush” + “Daffodil Delight” for the baby girl card.
Hanging from the Clothesline/Banners are a cute baby onesie, tie and booties, all from the “Something For Baby” stamp set, and cut using the matching “Baby’s First” Framelits.


The finishing touch is the Banner at the bottom corner of the card, with the wording “Celebrate You” from the “Cupcake Party” stamp set, which had a Banner cut at one end, and a cute yellow duck at the other end, which has been fussy cut.


On the inside of the card are the words “Wishing you a wonderful journey through a world of dreams come true!” from the “World Of Dreams” stamp set.


This stamp set is a fantastic addition to my craft room, and I am already imagining the possibilities, and my next few projects featuring this xtra cute “Something for Baby” stamp set.
