Sweet Little One baby card b designer Patty Folchert

A sweet baby card is on the docket for today, made with a brand new Hampton Art stamp set and some Jillibean Soup paper and fringe garland.

Sweet Little One card by Patty Folchert

This card began with watercolor paper and paints using three colors I made a wash. Then set aside for it to dry. Next I stamped the sentiment and baby carriage stamp in blue ink onto the watercolor paper and matted onto the striped paper. Then from new kraft tag I cut out the “sweet” message and adhered to carriage. Then I added three pearls and some brand new Cotton Candy fringe garland was the perfect finishing touch. 

Now you are ready for that next baby girl shower or toddler birthday party. 

Sweet Wishes,
Patty

Two sweet baby cards by designer Joy Ott

Welcome back to the Hampton Art blog! Today’s cards are so quick to put together. They feature a cute new Hampton Art clear stamp set called “Oh Baby and a wood stamp called “So Tiny, So Small”. I really like the large sentiment as the focal point and you get more use out of the smaller image stamps like the feet and the pins by stamping them multiple times.

Hello Little One
There's no reason you can't do a little "redesign" of a stamp if your spacing needs won't accommodate the image exactly as it is. When I first tried to put my owls on my die-cut circle, the heart over the mama's head felt crowded. So I just cut it out and moved it over to the side where there was more room. (Works for me!)
Thanks for stopping and have a blessed day!

Love Life, Love You card by designer Patty Folchert

This card has a lot to say, thanks to the new stamp collection- Say Cheese from Hampton Art. Then add in some papers from Jilibean Soup/Soup Staples III collection and it makes the perfect statement.

Love Life, Love You card by Patty Folchert

The base of the card was created with the Blueprint paper and the Record Your Numbers paper provided the border strip. Next I used the sewing machine and some brown thread to add a little texture. Then I stamped all of the sentiments shown in brown ink onto white cardstock. Then fussy cut them out as you see and added them with adhesive to the card, the tag, word bubble, arrow and smile were added with foam dots. The final touch was a silver wood sprinkle for the camera, and finished!

Are you ready to stamp a statement? This card would work for several different occasions and is sure to bring a smile to all of them.

Say Cheese,
Patty

Two Cute Frog cards by designer Patty Folchert

Who says that a stamp set designed for babies can’t get some extra mileage? The frog stamp in this brand new Hampton Art/Oh Baby stamp set is irresistible. I love to find extra uses for my sets to expand their versatility, so here are two cards done very differently, but neither is a baby theme. A fun and colorful card suitable for a young to pre-teen girl and the other a Congratulations card for any age.

So Cute card by Patty Folchert

This card goes together quickly with the KI Memories Playlist collection cut-outs and papers. The base is made of the retro teal paper with the edge left on along the right side. Next I cut a ¼” border strip of the black line paper and added with 3D pop up dots. Then I stamped the frog in green ink onto plain white cardstock and fussy cut out. Using foam dots I layered the frog and black confetti dot paper onto the heart cutout as shown. The sentiment was stamped in charcoal ink onto the pink pattern paper and cut with one end angled. Last to add some pizazz I added the three mini banners at the top in coordinating papers and then green glitter dots for eyes and a flower sequin with a blue glitter dot center.

Congratulations card by Patty Folchert

The second frog card has double versatility, why? The papers were from Jillibean Bean Soup/Witches Brew -a Halloween collection! As you can see they work just fine for an everyday card. The base was made with the orange retro print and the two large banners cut from coordinating 6x6 paper pad. Place as shown and add some of the brand new Soup Staples III Sides kraft circle tags. I stamped the sentiment onto one of the pea pod diecuts in black ink. The frog was stamped onto a grid pattern cream paper in green ink. Then I dressed up the circle tags with some of the new kraft tape and enamel stars. Then I created the flag by adding a toothpick to two papers and attaching with the kraft tape. 

There you have two frogs served up in two completely different styles using a baby theme stamp set. Super fun right? Hop on off to your craft room and work some magic with your stamp sets today!

Ribbitt,
Patty
