Good afternoon and welcome to another edition of Cards and Creations by Lori McBride. My name is Lori McBride and I’m a Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrator.
Today, I’d like to share with you these precious baby shower invitations that I made using the Elephant Builder Punch and the So Inviting Stamp Set.
So Inviting Stamp Set Item #151485
Elephant Builder Punch Item #14562
Layering Circles Dies Item #141705
Purple Posy Cardstock Item #150881
Highland Heather Cardstock Item #119683
I’m so sad to see the Pineapple Punch retire but I’m so happy to welcome the *NEW* Bumblebee In Color come. I think there are some truly great substitutes for Pineapple Punch as far as the Designer Series Papers.
This is really just a very simple design. I found myself in a predicament with Designer Series Paper in having enough to complete both invitations and Thank you cards so for the invitations I decided to go Note Card sized rather than our standard A2 size.
7″ x 5″ Purple Posy scored at 3 1/2″
3″ x 4 1/2″ Pineapple Punch Matte Base
2 1/2″ x 4″ Highland Heather Matte Base
2″ x 3 1/2″ DSP Purple Posy Matte Base
As in previous projects that I’ve done for this baby shower, I stamped, punched, die cut all of my pieces and assembled the exact same way.
I used Snail Adhesive to adhere the Purple Posy DSP to the Highland Heather and Pineapple Punch Cardstock. I used Mini Glue Dots to adhere the Pineapple Punch Ribbon to the back of the Pineapple Punch Cardstock and Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the Pineapple Punch Circle with the Little Elephant to the front of the invitations and the Pineapple Punch Matte Base to the Purple Posy Cardbase. I am currently awaiting more basic jewel rhinestones from Stampin’ Up to arrive to fill in a little bit of the empty space and just add those final little touches.
For the inside of the invitations, I used a piece of Whisper White Cardstock measuring 3″ x 4 1/2″ and the So Inviting Stamp Set and my Stamparatus (Item #146276) and Momento Black Ink for the Mommy-to-Be to add all of the details for her special day.
Thank you so much for joining me again today. I hope you’ll join me again soon.
