Hello Again!

Wow! Time sure flies by when you're having fun! I've been enjoying a new member to our family- baby Seyla Aubry!



My sister gave birth almost two weeks ago and she is the sweetest little girl! Mama, Daddy, and big brothers Asher and Micah are loving her like crazy and doing really well! With a new baby comes lots of visitors, too! Hee! Being so far away from our home state of Washington, we don't get too many of them each year so it's been a real treat!

Since our weekend visitors left this morning for the airport, I decided to relax and spend a little time stamping this afternoon...



Goodies:
All products by Stampin' Up!

Stamps: Crazy for Cupcakes set
Ink: Soft Suede, So Saffron, Rose Red, Bermuda Bay, Going Gray classic inks; Jet Black StazOn
Paper: Soft Suede, So Saffron, Rose Red, Bermuda Bay cardstock; watercolor paper
Accessories: Bermuda Bay polka-dot grosgrain ribbon, Aqua Painter, Scallop Edge punch, Signo White gel pen, paper piercer, Perfect Polka-dots texture plate, Dazzling Diamonds; White Embossing powder

Pretty, right? The colors were inspired by Just Add Ink's first challenge:



I changed them up a little but only because I am all out of Taken with Teal paper! Guess I'll have to order some more in my next box.

I also used a great icing technique straight out of January's Stampin' Success magazine- so cool! I'll be teaching it at my next workshop for sure!

Anyways, time for a little arts and crafts with my kiddos before I start dinner... enjoy the rest of your day and thanks for popping by!

What an adorable baby!

That's a gorgeous card you've done too. I love the layout you've done and the Bermuda Bay looks divine in place of Taken with Teal. Beautiful! Thanks for playing!

I'll try again. Made a typo before! Your card is so sweet. The faux technique is a favourite of mine at the moment.
