SSINKspiration Forgotten Favorites from the Annual Catalog: Better Together

Good morning!  I think we'll all agree that our Occasions catalog has some fabulous items that have got our focus lately, right?  But we can't forget the annual catalog and all the wonderful products that we have available all year long.  Today over on the SSINKspiration blog the designers are sharing projects made using some of our forgotten favorites from the annual catalog.  I had a coworker recently who needed a baby card and asked for my help so I looked through my stamps and decided to use the Better Together (awesome set) and Something for Baby to come up with this card that would work equally well to welcome a baby boy or girl.

I started with Mint Macaron cardstock fro the cardbase and then added a piece of Basic Gray cardstock that was embossed with the Big Shot and Sparkle Embossing Folder (this is such a great neutral embossed print, it works with everything!!)

next I used the Big Shot and cut a circle using one of the cards from the Happy Baby Girl Project Life card collection (great thing about some of these patterns is that they all don't have pink in them so you could certainly service boy greetings with the same pack) and then cut a scallop circle mat out of Mint Macaron cardstock using the same framelits.

This cute little duck is from the Something for Baby stamp set and after coloring on the stamp with my Stampin' Write Markers and stamping on Whisper White cardstock it's easy to cut him out using the coordinating Baby's First Framelits.  The gray circle mat was cut with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch and then he was attached with a dimensional (used a dimensional both on the duck to the circle and the circle to the cardfront).

The final touch was the greeting which is from the Better Together stamp set (this set has greetings for so many different occasions it's so versatile and was stamped in Basic Gray ink on So Saffron cardstock before being cut out with the Big Shot and Stitched Shapes Framelits.  Before attaching the greeting to the cardfront with dimensionals I added a little piece of silver ribbon from the 3/8" Metallics Combo Pack (a SAB Freebie) for a little sparkle.

Babies are such a fun occasion to celebrate and it's great to have a few cards in your stash ready to go for just in time giving so I like to have a few on hand.  These stamps and the Project Life cards make them easy to make and sure to please.  Make sure to check out the other cards the design team is sharing and I'm sure you'll find at least one new stamp set from the Annual Catalog to add to your must have wish list (and Sale-a-bration is a great time to get those items when you can earn freebies)!

Below are easy ordering links for the products used on today's card:

Have a great weekend!
