Create Together With Marcie Sharp - Baby Bear

           Today I am joining my friend Marcie Sharp from Sharp Designs for a dual blog collaboration that she began called "Create Together". We created cards using a theme we chose, babies!!  My life seems to be all about babies these days with the much anticipated arrival of our baby girl. Here is the card I created:
     I created a card featuring the adorable Stampin' Up! set "Bear Hugs". This is such a fun set and those bears definitely make me smile. The stamped flowers are from the MFT stamp set "Mini Modern Blooms"  with coordinating dies. I could stamp those flowers ALL day! My patterned paper is Bundle of Joy by Echo Park. (It's been out for a couple of years but I love it and have held onto it!)
Be sure to visit Marcie's Blog to see her baby themed creations!  Thanks for stopping by!

Reverse Confetti Anything Goes - Oh Baby!

Hello hello! Today is my last post as one of this months Reverse Confetti "Fetti Friends". I have had a  great time and all of your super sweet comments on my cards has really warmed my heart. Today I am sharing a sweet baby themed card (of course) featuring stamps from the adorable new RC stamp set "Cute As a Button" with coordinating Confetti Cuts.  
I also used the oh so versatile ABC Cover Panel,
and the newly released Big Stripes Tag Layer.
Here is my card!
      The sentiment is from the previously released RC sentiment stamp set "Fancy Word Coordinates".  
    I love how beautifully these stamps lay the ink down. Such a solid, perfect inked impression! If you are an avid stamper like I am you understand what I mean, and have probably experienced the frustration of using stamps that just won't give a good stamped impression. I had fun putting this card together! I am happy you stopped by and I hope you have a wonderful week!
