Our Paper Adventures team added a new member this month with one of our team members welcoming a beautiful baby into her family.. It’ll be a while before she’s stamping, but I’m excited that our junior division is growing!
My Little Miss Papercrafts came shopping with me to pick out something for the new addition and made me giggle in the shop when they were analysing present options based on the potential for a coordinating card.
The final choice was a Bonds wondersuit with a fabulous neon tropical pattern. They were right – this design made a fabulous card!!!
The card was made using Rooted in Nature as the base and Animal Outing for the finishing touches.
Who knew that Rooted in Nature would be the perfect stamp set for a baby card??? It fits perfectly with the theme this week for the Just Add Ink challenge – my curveball of a suggestion to “Add a Twist”.
You can see the design team creations over at the Just Add Ink blog – and add your own card with a twist. The challenge is open until tomorrow evening.
One of the things I love the most about this baby card is the bright & fun colours. Who said baby cards had to be pastel & cutesy?!?
It’s a big welcome to the new little one! I have a feeling she’s going to carve her own path in life – with a uniqueness and boldness that this baby card promises!!!
June was another month full of birthday in the our Paper Adventures Team!
I’m still in my matchy-match card and gift phase. It’s fun not only matching my papercraft materials to the necklaces, but matching the necklaces to the recipients!
First up it was Cate’s birthday! Cate joined a couple of years ago, using her birthday money to buy her starter kit. The rest is history!
Cate loves purple! It was tricky to get a photo of this card showing off just how lovely the Bundle of Love DSP is!
Then it was Narelle’s birthday. Narelle is my stamping sister and the one who lead this pony to the Stampin’ Up! pond!
Narelle is quite partial to pink!
I used the bleach technique on the panel of this card to remove the colour from the flowers – simple but effective!
And it was also my upline’s birthday – Maxine Norrish, who once upon a time said, “would you like to join, you’ll get free paper”… And the rest is history!
These colours are perfect for the types of outfits that Maxine wears!
Isn’t it amazing how well our Stampin’ Up! products coordinate with fashion & trends! The SU! concept design are awesome!!!
If joining Stampin’ Up! is on your radar, pop in tomorrow – there’s a great joining special in July!!!

Today, we’re sending birthday wishes to one of the Paper Adventures team members.
I do love it when the present I choose for someone has a great concept for a matching card.
Happy Birthday Siobhan!!!
I hope you have a wonderful day.
