Vintage Nursery

Published by at 5 58 am under Baby Cards,Stampin' Up! Projects

This is a card I did a few weeks ago for Jami’s swap and we couldn’t post until the swaps were out. I still haven’t received my box, but I am so anxiously waiting!!! Thank you girls!!! I called this Vintage Nursery because these colors look so vintage to me – this makes me think of vintage baby. I had to use the colors from the Boho Westcolor schemein the SU catalog and Nursery Necessities. Here it is:


The base is Chocolate Chip, witha Purely Pomegranate layer on top and then the white panel, stamped with Pretty in Pink using the Floral background stamp, edges lightly sponged to finish and soften. I used the corner rounder with the guard removed to create the scallop and used the Crop-a-dile to punch the holes.

The moon is stamped in Craft Regal Rose and embossed with Iridiscent Ice. The inner circle is punched out with the 1 3/8″ punch and the outer circle can be punched with a 2″ punch (non SU) or cut out with the Coluzzle. It is then mounted onto a 2 1/2″ circle (again, using a non-SU punch or the Coluzzle). On this Pomeganate circle I stamped a few stars in the same color ink, outlined with a glue pen and sprinkled on Dazzling Diamonds. The star is stamped onto white paper with Chocolate Chip ink, classic, as I didn’t have Craft. Then to emboss it with the Iridescent Ice, I firstpunched it out andthenI had to smoosh it into a Versa Mark pad, and it worked great!!! The sentiment is also from Nursery Necessities. The ribbon is the Chocolate Taffeta!!! I LOVE this set!!!
