Mojo Monday Sketch for a Baby Shower Card

Stampin up stampinup pretty order stamp it butterfly punch spring catalogs baby shower card idea rain or shine
This card (loaded with sneak peeks from the Stampin’ Up! Spring Catalog) and these colors shout “fresh and vibrant” to me!  It can easily be changed from a Baby Shower card to birthday, thank you or get well with the simple flip of a sentiment!  The design began with this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO273).

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS (“NEW” products will be available Jan. 3 with the release of the Stampin’ Up! Spring Catalog):

  • NEW!  Rain or Shine stamp set is sure to brighten your day with umbrella and sentiment images.  I cropped off the decorative tips of the points with my Paper Snips to keep the look clean (and made snipping a snap).Stampin up stampinup pretty order stamp it butterfly punch spring catalog baby shower card idea rain or shine
  • NEW!  Stampin’ Up! Ovals Framelits Dies (available Jan. 3) offer a variety of oval sizes for perfect layering.
  • I love the look of the oval punch layered over the die cut from Apothecary Accents Framelits.  It was inspired by a project created by Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Cathy Schroeckenthaler, a member of my Stampin’ Pretty Pals Virtual Community.

  • NEW x 2! The little butterfly was cropped using the Bitty Butterfly Punch and Sunshine & Sprinkles Designer Series Paper (DSP).  I used the same DSP for the striped pattern and die cut background for the sentiment.  Colors include:  Basic Gray, Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade, Marina Mist, Melon Mambo, Pacific Point, Whisper White.
  • NEW!  Melon Mambo 3/8″ Striped Organdy Ribbon provides a sweet accent.

    This is darling, Mary! I love the bright colors and the sweet little posy on the umbrella.

  16. This is a really beautiful and fresh card that indeed shouts Spring to me. The ribbon is gorgeous, Mary and that umbrella it’s cut so amazingly perfect that I really thought it was done with a punch or a die. You have some amazing paper snip skills. I can’t wait for my Spring catalog to start dreaming of getting some of this beautiful new SU products.
