E asy, fun card to welcome a new baby boy using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock pieces to the following sizes using a cutting and scoring tool:
- card from Seaside Spray Cardstock at 4-1/2" x 11" and scored at 5-1/2"
- 2-1/4" square from Whisper White Cardstock
Open the card and place it on some Grid Paper to protect your work surface.
Cut a Stamping Sponge into quarters so it is easier to control the sponge and you have more surfaces to work with.
Rub the curved part of the sponge quarter across the open Seaside Spray Ink Pad to get it inky. Then, lightly rub the inky sponge over the front of the card in the upper left corner and just to the right of center near the center down to near the bottom right corner. Repeat until you have the color coverage you want. Get more ink on the sponge quarter as needed.
Tip: I just clean my sponges when I'm done using them by running them under water until no more color is coming off. Then, I let them air dry. They may be stained, but they are clean enough to use with any color of ink in the future.
Mount the "twinkle twinkle little star" sentiment from the Little Twinkle Set on Block H. Ink it up with the Pacific Point Ink Pad. Stamp it in the upper left corner of the card front.
Mount the small grouping of stars image from the Little Twinkle Set on Block A.
Shake the bottle of Frost White Shimmer Paint while the lid is on tight. Remove the lid and place it on some Grid Paper on your work surface open end up. Poke a Sponge Dauber down into the lid to pick up some of the shimmer paint.
Daub the Shimmer Paint onto the small grouping of stars image. Stamp onto the card front randomly around the lower area of sponged Seaside Spray Ink. Remember to re-ink the dauber each time. Put the lid back on the bottle and shake again if necessary.
Mount the single star image from the Little Twinkle Set on Block A. Add Shimmer Paint to it in the same way using the Sponge Dauber and stamp it randomly around the lower Seaside Spray sponging on the card front and near the end of the big word "twinkle" in the upper left corner. Remember to re-ink the dauber each time.
Mount the "A Star Is Born" star image from the Little Twinkle Set on Block C. Ink it up with the Pacific Point Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the white square.
Use Paper Snips to cut out the "A Star Is Born" star image by hand. Leave a small border of white around the edges.
Use Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the "A Star Is Born" star cut out to the front of the card at a slight angle in the center of the lower sponged Seaside Spray and shimmery stars area.
Cut 2 pieces of Whisper White Solid Baker's Twine each 16" long.
Holding the two pieces of twine side by side, wrap them around the top of the card near the fold and tie in place on the right side using a small bow. Trim the ends.
Use the mini spatula on the Take Your Pick tool to pick up 3 different sized rhinestones from a sheet of Rhinestone Basic Jewels being sure to get adhesive as well. Adhere them to the front of the card around the lower Seaside Spray sponged area.
