This is one of those sets I kept when it retired, and I'm glad I did! I fell in love with it when I saw it and I still use it pretty frequently. I really love the phrases "you grow girl" and "happy waiting."
I had two friends announce last month that they were pregnant and I wanted to congratulate them. So I whipped out this set and some scraps of Lap of Luxury DSP, and my sketchbook.
FYI- My sketch book is a book I use to sketch out layouts of cards I see and like. THEY ARE NOT USUALLY FROM MY OWN CARDS. Sometimes I see a card (in a magazine, online, etc...), and what I really like about it, is the way it's laid out. So I'll draw it out in my sketchbook to refer back to when I need an idea and am totally blank. Like I was the day I sat down to make these. :) I use a 5" x 5" On Board Stampin' Up! journal that I decorated a long time ago with scraps of paper and embellishments.
For this card I really liked the Life Is Beautiful piece of designer paper. I thought it apprapos for a baby.:)
For both of the cards I used the same DSP and color scheme. That made it easier. And really, the reason I made two different ones, was because I couldn't decided between the two. :)
For both of them I also used paper piecing. That's when you stamp the image a second time on another paper and cut out a part of it to put over the original image. In this case I stamped onto the designer series paper and cut out the dress to put on the girl.
This is what the inside piece of this one looks like:
In the second card I really like the tab on top, and used a strip of basic pearls to cover the staple I put it one with. :)
Remember that, even though the stamp set is retired, you can get the papers I used at my online shop.
