Perhaps I shouldn't say this, but I LOVE this card. The Stampin' Up! Dazzling Diamonds takes the card from cute baby card to a WOW baby card.
Where did my Mojo come from?
I do not have baby stamp sets due to where I am in my life right now. So when I need to make a baby card I rely on using other stamp sets in a unique way. I recently created a card with the Zoo Babies stamp set (see that post here) and I wanted to do something different. Once again I did a search in Pinterest. Nothing was catching my eye until I found a card with a rattle on the front. That was all I needed. There was no name to acknowledge for the inspiration, so whoever originated the idea – Thank You!
The rattle was easy to create with my circle punches and a thin slice of Pink Pirouette card stock. I stamped my Versamark Stamp pad half-way up the large circle then sprinkled with Stampin' Up's Heat n' Stick powder. With a little heat from my heat gun the powder turns sticky. Then you sprinkle on the Dazzling Diamonds and work it into the area. Shake off the excess. Then step back and go WOW!
I used the Scallop Trim Boarder punch for the finishing touch on the rattle. This created a clean border between the dazzling diamonds and the "plain" side of the rattle.
A little ribbon finishes it all off.
Thanks for stopping by. Leave me a comment and let me know what your favorite stamp set is for baby cards?

A clean and crisp thank you card. I love the Lots of Thanks stamp set. It includes nine different stamps with beautiful and varied fonts to say “thank you”. It also comes in French and German. I often check out the French verison when available to see if I might like to also purchase it in French. When I saw this stamp set in French it was love at first sight.
Where did my mojo come from for this card?
From one of my favorite catalogs where they showed four solid colored placements layered on top of one another. Since becoming a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator I see the world in Stampin’ Up! colors. I immediately said to myself,”oh those colors are Basic Grey, Bermuda Bay, Summer Starfruit and Early Espresso”. I chose to use Smoky Slate rather than Early Espresso to keep the card lighter. You can find inspiration almost anywhere.
Did I get your mojo going? I would love to hear from you. Don’t forget to stop back tomorrow for the Pals Blog Hop. It is sure to give you lots of great inspiration from so many talented stampers.
Until tomorrow, cheers!
The holidays seem to roar into our lives faster each year. This year is no exception with Christmas less than seven weeks away. And Hanukkah is very early arriving over Thanksgiving weekend. This year Stampin' Up! has created a Season of Style This and That journal and planner to help us plan and enjoy the holiday season.
I have three thirty-something colleagues who all maintain a paper calendar. So I thought they would enjoy using the Season of Style planner and all its accessories. To ensure they had plenty of time to plan they were given their gifts in October. Imagine the look on their faces when I came in and said Merry Christmas here are your gifts!
Their gifts included the following:
I had so much fun putting this present together. I used the Joyful Christmas Stamp set to create the poinsettia to decorate the Stampin' Up! Extra Large kraft box. I used our Pewter Emboss powder for the poinsettia which made it super easy to fussy cut out the flower adhered to the top of the kraft box as you can see here.
Then I used the Cherry Cobbler Chevron ribbon to tie the entire bundle together. Simple and oh so cute! The final touch was the Be Merry Tag from the Single Stamps collection. Click here to see the entire list of single stamps. There are great stamps in this collection so check it out.
I spitzed the tag with Smooch Spritz and then added Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Diamonds for the berries on the holly. I think the tags turned out so cute.
You can see a bit of the shimmer in the bottom left corner of the tag.
There is still plenty of time to get your Seasons of Style journal to keep track of gifts given, cards sent and received, and your favorite photos from the season. Shop Now and have a very Merry holiday season.
I hope I got YOUR mojo going today.
