Rustic Woodland Baby Card and Baby Shower Gift

Our friends Kayse & Keither are expecting a baby boy in early July.  They live in a log cabin and have decorated the baby's room in a rustic woodland theme.  I designed my baby shower card to coordinate with the Checkmate Plaid totes and organizers from Thirty-One Gifts that I gifted them. 

Here's a close up of the card.  I love how it turned out!
The stamp set is a retired Stampin' Up! set called "Pines".

Travel to a Peaceful Place

Today I’m participating in a Blog Series organized by my friend and fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Kylie Bertucci to showcase the amazing talent of demonstrators around the world.  

This month the theme is:  Travel. Many Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world will soon be sailing to Alaska for the Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip.  I’m so excited to be one of them!  

This card is inspired by the parks and serene scenery we enjoy visiting here in upstate NY, but also that which we look forward to seeing on our trip to Alaska.  I truly do find my Peaceful Place in nature.

The sentiment stamped on the card perfectly sums up how appreciative I feel for my customers and Creative “Card”-iologist team members who helped me achieve my goal of earning the Stampin’ Up! Alaskan Cruise Incentive Trip.  Thank you all very very much!

I stamped my scenery image on a 3 x 3 3/4” piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock, colored it with my Stampin’ Blends Markers, then tote the right edge, distressed it with my fingernail, and inked the torn edge.  I did the same thing with the Mellow Moss layer.  I stamped the leaves on Very Vsnilla Cardstock, colored them with Stampin’ Blends and cut them out with my paper snips.  I added a little bow made from linen thread as the finishing touch.

Super Fun Sea of Textures Shaker Card for the Alaska Achievers Blog Hop

Welcome to our Alaska Achievers Blog Hop for June!  We have a fantastic hop to share with you today - full of inspiring ideas using products from the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog. 

I've had Shaker Cards on the brain lately and designed this super fun card using products from the Tranquil Texures Suite - in particular the Sea of Textures stamp set & Under the Sea framelits dies which are available bundled together at a 10% savings.

Super Fun Sea of Textures Shaker Card

I used the wonderfully versatile Wood Textures Designer Series Paper for the background since I thought it would give the look of a sunken ship.

Here's a close up of the sentiment and you can see how the Tranquil Textures Sprinkles have scattered around.
I thought the verse "Have a wonderful adventure" would be great for a graduation or retirement card - perfect for someone embarking on a new adventure!

And here is the whole set of cards I've designed for a Shaker Cards Technique Class I have coming up later this week!

Thank you for joining us for this amazing hop today!  I know you are going to be inspired by what the other demonstrators have to share.  Remember, you are currently at my blog - Jessica Brigden.  So check the list below to see who is up next.
