And today I have a baby card to share with you, with a star, of course!


An easily made card, relying on the cute strips of ducks in the Ducks in a Row pad by October Afternoon for my focal image. My sentiment is from the NEW JustRite set called All Occasions Nested Sentiments from their June release. I used my NEW JustRite Clear Rectangle Stamper with this sentiment — we can now SEE where we are stamping with JustRite — love it!!! It was so easy to align my sentiment nice and straight on the paper! I used VersaFine Onyx Black, my favorite ink for crisp, dark sentiments.


My star is punched out of SU YoYo Yellow with the the SU larger Star Punch, and dressed up with a button and piece of 1/8″ Silk Ribbon for the bow. My larger bow is Yellow 5/8″ Twill made on the Bow Easy. Rather than fluff my bow like I normallydo, I pressed it flat with my hand this time. It is glued on with Aleene’s Fast Grab Tacky Glue I pick up at Wal-Mart. You have to press it down for a few seconds, but once it grabs, it’s there for good! And I used tiny black Kaiser Pearls for the mama ducks eyes.

Items used on this card available at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store are:
