FTL #8. Another baby girl!

IMG_0160We have another baby girl about to be welcomed in our church.  I kept tweeking this to make me happy.  I like how it turned out until I realized that I mixed white and cream… Oh well.  Here is the Fall To recipe.


Paper:  Pink Pirouette, Purely Pomegranate, White, misc designer paper

Ink:  Purely Pom

Stamps: So Many Scallops

Extras:  Purely Pom ribbon, dies, swiss dots embossing folder


FTL #7.

IMG_2147I’m not sure how closely this layout is to the original design.  I’m pleased with how the cards turned out, but I may want to take a stab at actually getting close to this layout.


Paper:  White, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery

Ink: Almost Artichoke, Bashful Blue

Stamps: Larger Than Life, Inside Out Birthday (PTI)

Extras: Ribbon

FTL #6

IMG_2148I don’t get to make many baby cards anymore!  This card is for a sweet little girl from our church.  Here is actually very little stamping done.    The designer series paper is  from SU!  I love the ribbon from Paper trey.  You can find the sketch here.


Paper: Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink Designer paper

Ink: Pretty in Pink

Stamps: Round and Round (PTI)

Extras: Sheer polka dot ribbon (PTI)

FTL #5

IMG_2146There is a reason why I need to upload and comment on cards as soon as I do them!  I don’t remember who I made this for…  I really like the chalkboard greetings set by My Favorite things.  It was an impulse order, but I’m glad I got this.  I’d been waiting for the balloon dies to come back in stock for quite a while.  I like how easily it is to make balloons (especially with the companion set).  Here is the original post…


Paper:  PTI White, Basic Black, Bashful Blue, Real Red, So Saffron, Ballet Blue

Ink: Pure Poppy (PTI), VersaMark

Stamps: Birthday Chalkboard Greetings, DC Party Balloons (both from MFT)

Extras:  Die-namics Party Balloons

FTL #4…

IMG_0158This is a project rather than a card, but I’m pleased with the outcome.  Jordan has has a pretty difficult school year.  I thought she’d like a visual reminder of how many school days were left.  After I gave this to her, she told me there was a countdown in the Commons!  She’s still using it.  Here is the original sketch from Clean and Simple stamping.


Paper:  Wild Wasabi, Basic Black, misc designer paper, cork

Ink: White Chalk marker

Stamps: none

Extras: lined paper, 4×6 acrylic picture frame

FTL #3!

My Fall To Layout #3 wasn’t a birthday card!  We know an amazing family that is in the process of adopting a child.  I can’t wait to see the little one that God places into their family!


Paper:  Rich Razzleberry, Cream, Pale Plum, Pink, Designer Paper

Ink: Fresh Snow (PaperTrey Ink)

Stamps: Clearly Sentimental about Aubrey Hepburn (MFT)

Extras:  Heart punches, Detail white EP, White polka dot ribbon (PTI)

FTL #2!


My take on the second fall to layout is another birthday card for another nephew!  Here is the link to the original sketch.  Alyssa thought this looked a little babyish.  I find it hard to make cards for either boys or men!

For supplies, I used:

Card stock:  Ballet Blue (base), Night of Navy, So Saffron, Only Orange, and Gable Green (all Stampin’ Up)

Ink:  Night of Navy

Stamps:  Birthday Chalkboard Greetings (My Favorite Things)

Extras:  Balloon punch from Martha Stewart
