Sweetest Gift 1 – Stampin’ Up! Card Tutorial #624


Hey There,

Happy Friday!  I’m ready for the weekend.   How about you?   I need a little R & R, but I have a feeling I’ll be spending time doing some odd jobs that need done around here over the weekend.   I’m hoping for  a bit of a break in the soring temps so I feel like working outside again.   At least I want the feels like temp to be down below 100!

Anyhow, today I’m working in my nice air conditioned office, so no complaints.  I have a cute baby card for you today using the Stampin’ Up! Sweetest Gift stamp set.   Add some clouds and grass and you have a sweet scene to add to your card.   What new parents wouldn’t  get a grin from receiving this?

Check out my tutorial on how this was done below.


I’ve added the featured card of the day to my sales page where you will also find some great deals on retired stamp sets and my beginner brayer videos.  CLICK HERE TO CHECK IT OUT


Now on with today’s tutorial. . . . .  . .

Project Supplies:

Stamps: Stampin’ Up! Sweetest Gift (item #130586)

Card Stock: Stampin’ Up! Whisper White and Pear Pizzazz

Ink: Stampin’ Up! Marina Mist, Pear Pizzazz and Stazon Jet Black

Accessories: Stampin’ Up!  Sponges, 1 3/4″ Scallop Circle  Punch (item #119854), Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder (item #117335), Whisper White Ribbon, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Daffodil Delight, Basic Black, Blush Blossom, Pear Pizzazz and Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write Markers and the Big Shot Machine

Started with a 3″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White card stock.  Stamped the baby by coloring directly on the stamp with Pear Pizzazz and Basic Black.  Huffed my breath on the stamp and then stamped it.

Colored the baby’s skin Blush Blossom, shirt Daffodil Delight and then outlined the diaper and bottom of the parachute with Basic Black.


Added Pear Pizzazz to the bottom of the parachute and diaper to give it some shading.

Punched a scallop punch out of scrap paper and used it as a mask to create the clouds using Marina Mist ink and a sponge.



Sponged Pear Pizzazz ink at the bottom of the card stock.

Added Blushing Bride dots at the top of the grass for flowers.  We want that baby to be landing in something soft, lol.

Added Blush Blossom to the baby’s cheeks.

Stamped the sentiment using Stazon Jet Black ink.

Cut a 4″ x 5.25″ panel of Pear Pizzazz and embossed it using the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder and Big Shot Machine.


Added a Whisper White card base and Whisper White layer to the main image panel.  Also added Whisper White Ribbon.

Here is the finished card measuring 4.25″ x 5.5″.

Stay cool!

Until my next post. . . . . .

Huge Hugs!
