Ink. Stamp. Share. February Showcase Blog Hop

Welcome to the Ink. Stamp. Share. February Showcase Blog Hop as our Design Team Members share projects they are currently working on with Stampin' Up! products. We hope that our projects and ideas will help inspire you to get creative and create your own wonderful creations. 
Today I am sharing a sweet Welcome Baby card that I created with the new Let's Set Sail Bundle from the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog. Often when we think of baby cards, we think of pastel colors but I wanted to create a card that was bright and bold for a baby boy. The background design was created with the Sunshine & Rainbows 6"x6" Designer Series Paper, one of the Level 1 Sale-a-Bration Rewards you can earn free with a qualifying order. I love the contrast between the Misty Moonlight background and the Real Red and Basic White. This fun card design would also work well as a Birthday or Thank You card.

This wonderful clean and simple card was fun to create and I loved using the new Sailboat Builder Punch to create the focal image. I stamped the sails using Real Red Classic ink onto Basic White cardstock and punched it out with the punch. I punched out the boat from Early Espresso cardstock also using the punch. For the focal image, I stamped the water with the long image using Balmy Blue Classic ink, stamping several times without reinking to create layers like waves. I also stamped the birds in the sky using Misty Moonlight Classic ink. I attached the boat to the focal circle towards the center and then attached the sails on either side of the mast. I layered the focal image onto the large Real Red circle and then attached it to the center of the card front. I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrating You stamp set with Misty Moonlight Classic ink onto Basic White cardstock and punched it out with the Double Oval Punch. I layered it onto the scalloped Real Red oval that was punched out using the same punch and attached it below the focal circle. To embellish the card design, I used Clear Wink of Stella to color the sails and the waves to add some shimmer and I added some Basic Rhinestones for a touch of bling.
