Adoption Is – SFYTT

Thank goodness this week is over. Have 3 dogs and a house guest have not made for a lot of stamping time.  At least I had Jen’s Sketch for You to Try to get me into my stamp room.

Recently Roger’s brother and Sister-in-Law adopted a baby from China.  We sent a care package, but I’ve been wanting to use this stamp set to send an adoption baby card.  I used the retired By Ones & By Twos from Stampin’ Up!.  I stamped the onsie image on Shimmer White card stock and watercolored it with Pretty in Pink and Rose Red ink.  I cut it out with the Circle Scissors and sponged the edges to make it stand out a bit more.  I’m not sure I’m happy with the sponging, but it is what it is.  I added a retired Barely Banana brad to the center of the flower.  The felt embellishment combines Felt Fusion flowers and the Sweet Pea stitched flowers.

Here is the sketch that Jen provided for us this week.  She also welcomes a new Guest Designer for the month of August.  This month it’s Tori Wild!

Please take a moment to check out the rest of the Sketch for You to Try Sisters. I hope you have a chance to play along with us as well.

We have no soccer games this weekend! My parents are coming to pick up my sister and their dog who have been living with us for over the past week. We have no major plans for the 3 day weekend and I hope to get some stamping time in.  I’ll be back on Monday with a new project and on Tuesday the Stampin’ Up! Only challenges begin.


Simple Baby Girl

I have a quick Clean and Simple card today using Fall to Layout 106.  I used a Crumb Cake card stock base and stamped the retired Numbers wheel across in Crumb Cake ink.  The Sweet Pea designer series paper is 4 1/4 X 1 3/4″ and has both right corners rounded.  I then used my sewing machine to add the curvy stitch lines.  I have to have my mom look at the machine because I think my tension is messed up.  The stars are from Nursery Necessities and are stamped off in So Saffron ink and punched out with the Large and Small star punches. They are on dimensionals and have a half pearl in the center of each.  The sentiment is stamped in Rose Red ink.

This sweet girl is Cookie.  She is going to be a guest in our home for the next few weeks.  She is another foster dog that we took in last night.  She definitely knows we saved her just in time.  Doesn’t she look a lot like Bandit?  Thank goodness for the tail so that I can tell them apart when they are running past me in a blur in the yard.  Cookie is looking for her forever home!

Well I have 3 dogs in my house today so I’m super busy.  I’ll be back tomorrow with a Sketch for You to Try sample.
