Baby We've Grown!

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

On August 31st our family grew, with the much anticipated arrival of my great-nephew, Landon Ryan. Almost as soon as we heard that my niece Tosha was expecting, I started working on a project that I'll share with you tomorrow, to celebrate the little one's arrival. As that secret project neared completion, I asked my sister Beth, who was in on it, if she wanted me to create announcement cards for the little man's arrival. She did and so I set about working on them.

I'd used the now retired Baby We've Grown and Celebrate Baby stamp sets, together with my all-time favorite Gorgeous Grunge from Stampin' Up!, for the first part of the project, so used them for the announcement cards too...

Card: Whisper White and So Saffron
Ink: Lost Lagoon, Soft Sky and Pool Party
Marker: Coastal Cabana Stampin' Write (retired, used to color in BABY)
Stamp sets: Baby We've Grown, Celebrate Baby and Gorgeous Grunge
Tools: Corner Rounder Punch
Adhesive: Tombow

The arrival of Landon Ryan redresses the hormonal balance in the house a tiny bit, because there are 5 women in the house! The little man's older sisters are 5 year old twins Brianna and Makayla and 3 year old twins Chloe and Charissa, born to proud parents Tosha and Josh in earlier relationships, so Josh isn't alone any more! Grin.

  1. Beautiful announcement card Em - looking forward to more of project Landon!

  2. Awww that's so sweet, love the colours you have picked. Creative Blessings, Tracy x

  3. hello Em! this is adorable, sweet soft colors and image! so glad you played along with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

    sparkle & shine *~*

  4. Really and truly, your image should be stamped directly onto the card base for a one layer card, but this is really lovely!
    Thanks so much
    "Less is More"

  5. Congratulations on the new arrival!
    Adorable card, though not strictly one layer
    Thank you for joining us
    Less is More

  6. Such a cute image and I like that the whole layer is stamped in baby blue. As mentioned by my teamies though, a one layer card should be one piece of card folded in half with no additional layers.
    Thanks for sharing with us.
