Bargello Baby!

Every now & then, we all need a cute little baby card to celebrate the arrival of a sweet new blessing!
Honestly, I couldn't resist the new 'Something for Baby' stamp set and its coordinating 'Baby's First Framelits'.

The 'Bargello' technique was shared by my sweet friend, Joan Ervin, in the TLC313 challenge at Splitcoaststampers.  Recently, our Creative Crew challenge CCREW0614HF for June was to celebrate your favorite holiday with a new (to you) technique!  'Lullaby' DSP with the new stamps and framelits.  After all, babies are a celebration as well as a blessing!
  Although my original intent was to celebrate Thanksgiving, that theme morphed over to celebrating babies as I combined the new

I've also used one of my multipurpose fave stamp sets here ... can you identify it?  If you join me here in the studio for an upcoming class, chances are you'll leave with a love of your own for that stamp set.  hee hee

Okay .... it's back to my stampin' table for me!  Classes coming up this Thursday and Saturday here, and new projects need to be ready for creative ladies!  You're welcome to check out my schedule over in the lower right corner of my SU website if you'd like to join us at any time!

Happy Stampin', Y'all!

Favorite Colors?

Now that everyone has settled in with their lovely new cattys-in-hand, let's get back into some new stampin' fun!

The Creative Crew was challenged with:  CCREW0614DF DSP/Color Focus: Show us your favorite color. Try it in a color combo you haven't used before!  Psssssst! Check out the CCREW gallery for lots of inspiration!


Color challenges can be lots of fun ... especially when you have to 'stretch' a little to make your natural choices blend in with the guidelines!  If you haven't given one a try, then this one would be a perfect start!

I've always been a pinks, purply and some greens kinda girl.   So when I first heard just the 'name' of the new In Color, 'Blackberry Bliss' ..... I already knew that it was for me.  A 'done deal' for sure.  Then I 'saw' it IRL (in real life) and practically squealed out loud!


Oh yes ... back to the challenge:

Yep!  My starting point was with a brand new awesome sheet of Blackberry Bliss C/S in hand.  Then I browsed through my hanging files of all other SU cardstocks, repeatedly picking one up then putting it back, until it was right in front of me .... Soft Sky!  I loved it at first sight.

My large scalloped border die was still on my table, and I wondered if I could work that into the card ... and it wasn't long before I could see it all in my mind and simply had to finish it up!  One bitty rhinestone dots the 'i' in 'friend' for a bit of glam to add to the wonderful sheen and subtle sparkle of the Shimmery White cardstock.  

I hope you like it!
