Clean & simple quest

So the 2 layer swap card for founders circle is REAL challenge.  (Maybe I am over counting a layer or 3)  So this week I am making a bunch of CAS (clean and simple) cards in an effort to get to the 2 layer requirement.  Its harder than you think!

Attempt #1  baby cards.  I placed in the top 30 in my big Stampin’ Team, The RemARKables.  So I got a free stamp a few days ago. (Thanks Jan!)  Decided to ink it up right away!

Well, they of course are way cuter in real life!  what do you think?

Stamps:  Two By Two, Itty Bitty banners
Paper: Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink
Ink: Same
Accessories: Perfect Polkadot folder, mini brads, dazzling detials

A Baby Album Part 3 of 3

I will not be posting a full detailed recipe and I will not be offering any instructions for this book.  I had so much fun making both books that I wanted to share.

Basic recipe:

to make this you will need an 8×8 album, matching ribbon to tie in a bow.  I used A baby Bundle, Pun Fun and the baby Tees wheel for the stamps- black ink.  

the Pages are made from the Subtles Collection- Card stock and the DSP paper stack- Celery, so saffron, pretty ink pink, bashful blue and perfect plum.  plus matching ribbon where shown.

Lots of punches and coloring to match.  

Have FUN!!
