Stampin' Up! Ribbon of Courage - clean and simple handmade card - CAS - glitter enamel dots - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

I really love Stampin’ Up!’s new Ribbon of Courage stamp set. It was designed by Patty Bennett in honor of her mother.

It has beautiful support ribbon stamps but also has this adorable heart and a couple of other cute little stamps, plus BEAUTIFUL sentiments.

There are also matching framelits, though I didn’t use them on this card. Lookit that tiny support ribbon!

For this clean and simple card, I stamped the heart several times in Archival Basic Black ink and colored each heart differently, though I used the same colors for each heart. I colored the hearts with my Stampin’ Write Makers in Lemon-Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Flirty Flamingo, Pink Pirouette, Daffodil Delight, and Bermuda Bay. I stamped the sentiment in Lemon-Lime Twist and finished off the card with some Glitter Enamel Dots.

Thanks for stopping by today! You can get all of these products in my Stampin’ Up! Online store. I’ve included the links below and also included the links for the framelits and the bundle (for 10% off!).

Hello, and welcome! This is my entry for Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlights, and you can VOTE for my cards here (I am #41). I would love to have your vote! The theme this month is BABY. I looked through my baby stamp sets and didn’t feel anything, but then I came across my new Quirky Critters stamp set, and I just had to!

I literally squealed in delight when I saw this adorable stamp set in the catalog. It has a narwhal (the unicorn of the sea) AND a sloth! Yep, top of my list.

For the background on my baby girl card, I used the new Embossing Paste mixed with Powder Pink ink refill. I love the masks that I have, but I wanted something that said baby, so I made my own mask using a Window Sheet and the strip of hearts in the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits and spread the Embossing Paste through the mask onto the Soft Sky card base. Also in the background are strips of Powder Pink cardstock and Silver Glimmer Paper, some Silver Mini Sequin Trim, and a Powder Pink flower cut using the Support Ribbon Framelits.

After I stamped and cut my narwhal, I also added some flowers using the Beautiful Bouquet bundle. Finally, I topped the card off with Metallic Sequins. LOVE these!

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from Moon Baby and some more flowers from Beautiful Bouquet. I love when I can use a non-baby set for a baby card!

I loved making the card so much that I had to make a boy card to go with it. This time I used Lemon-Lime Twist and Pool Party. And instead of my handmade mask, I used one of the masks from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks. My final change was to use the Iridescent Sequins instead of the Metallics. Soooo pretty!

Which one do you like better? I think I’m all for the boy card.

Thanks for stopping by, and please go VOTE for #41 in the gallery! I’d love to participate in the top 10 winners blog hop again!

I made the baby boy card in my live Facebook video today. Watch here:
