Guest Designing with The Sisterhood!!!

Hi Everyone!!
Welcome to Dreamland!  Today is the day!  My first post as a Step Sister for The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge Blog.  I will be guest designing this month!!  Check out their challenge blog.  They have two super fun challenges on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month.   And as today is the 2nd Wednesday, a new challenge starts today!!

The Challenge Theme: Baby --any baby themed card or project

And, here is my Baby themed card:

Materials List:
Stamps: Baby Carriage - Pink Persimmon
Ink: Rich Cocoa - Memento
CS: Very Vanilla and Chocolate Chip - Stampin' Up; Blue textured - Bazzill
DP: Hope Collection - Authentique
Brown Lace Fabric
Blue and Brown Ribbon - Hobby Lobby
Standard Circles Small die cut - Spellbinders
Circle, Scallop - Sizzix
Blue Pearls
Fabri-Tac Glue
3-D Zots


  • Make a square card from the Blue textured CS
  • Add a layer of Chocolate Chip CS
  • Cover with two different papers

  • Stamp the Baby Carriage on Very Vanilla CS with Rich Cocoa ink
  • Die cut with the Circles Spellbinder
  • Cut a scallop circle from Chocolate Chip CS and layer with the stamped circle
  • Make the ruffle:  Cut a strip of the brown lace fabric.  Run hand gathering stitches down one long edge.  Pull up the gathers.  Place a line of glue on the back of the stamp circle and press the ruffle into the glue.

  • Glue this unit to the card front
  • Add the blue pearls
  • Tie a bow in the ribbon and add to card front

Now, I have a pretty vintage baby card to send out to someone!!
