Baby Birthday Cards

This past weekend was a blast as I participated in splitcoaststampers "Virtual Stamp Night." This event happens a few times a year. Challenges are posted each hour for about 5 hours Friday night and 10 hours Saturday. Stampers are told to complete projects in 45 minutes or less (honor system, of course). The overall theme was the Winter Olympics. Good thing was I needed some baby birthday cards for a SCS swap I am hosting. Silly me, I completed my 2nd swap before my first. Good thing I don't have to mail these!! LOL!!

One challenge called for us to be inspired by Vancouver's waterfront. The sample was elegant, detailed...very involved. Well, I went another direction...the beloved CAS! (Clean & Simple) I pulled out Fox & Friends for that adorable whale,and used the scallop border punch. The sentiment is from On Your Birthday. The colors are night of navy and brocade blue.

The little girl card was for a "Sharpen your Blades" challenge. It called for the use of a score blade. I scored lines on the pink pirouette card stock, but you can't see it in the picture. I did score & fold a small panel for the bottom. I used the same stamp sets...but the colors are retired pink pirouette and riding hood red.

These will go to moms who graduate from the Bridges program at the ministry when their babies turn 1 year old. Lots of fun to make!!

Happy Stamping!!
