Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge #6

Hi Stamping Friends!

It's time for another Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge!!  And this week we are celebrating babies.  Girl babies in fact.  There is a cute story behind this inspiration.  Candace, who helps me plan challenges for the Stampin' Celebration blog was due to have a baby girl this week.  Ends up, three weeks ago she gave birth to a baby BOY!!  Little Adam was quite the surprise.  But both mom and baby are doing fine.  And since this inspiration challenge was planned way back in April, we just left well enough alone.  Here's what I created:


For this card I used the sketch challenge over at the Mojo Monday blog.  The first Monday of the month is their contest challenge and they have a TON of entries.  I've never had the priviledge of winning any Mojo Monday challenge.  It is on my things to accomplish someday.  But I'll tell, the competion is fierce over there!  They always have such amazing entries.  This card uses the stamp set Petal Pizzazz and some retired rub-ons.  The colors are Kiwi Kiss, Pretty In Pink, Cameo Coral and the retired Raspberry Tart DSP, which was one of my all-time favorite DSPs.  I just adore this color combo.  I also made a little baby shower party favor.  What's a celebration without a treat!!


This little treat holder was made using the Two Tags die.  The sentiment comes from the Nursery Necessities stamp set.  This set is going to retire, I'm sad to say.  I really like the images in this set, because they are not your typical "baby" images.  If you don't have this set yet, order it before June 30th!!  The fun flower was made using six Scallop Circles punched from Cameo Coral cardstock, also set to retire.  I wet the scallops (just under my kitchen sink faucet!) and then scrunched them all up, layered them on top of each other and fastened them together with a brad.  Then I fluffed them up.  Super easy and oh so fun!!

I hope you can play along with us this week at the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge.  Be sure to check out the other fabulous creations by our super talented design team:

Also, make sure you stop back tomorrow when I will be participating in the Stampin' Addicts Retiring SU! Mega Blog Hop.  Stampin' Addicts blog hops are the best!  I promise you won't be disappointed.

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!

Adorable Krystal! I love how you punched the DSP for the flower on the card. Awesome party favor too! I love how you made the flower with the scallops--looks just like the carnations from the inspiration piece.

Krystal, that color combo is PERFECT for a baby girl card! The card is adorable, and the story behind it made me giggle. So, how many pink outfits will he be wearing? :-D
