Stampin' UP! quatrefancy paper

It's a beautiful and cool morning today! The sun is finally been out after all the rain and cloud cover we've had.

I just want to do a quick post on a recent card I made for a co-worker of mine that will be soon expecting her first baby boy. Pure sweetness!

 Boy, are you up for an exciting year of new 2013-2014 Stampin' UP! products! From the new colors to stamp sets to beautiful designer paper, you will LOVE it all!

I fell in love with the quatrefoil design printed on the window sheet that comes in the Quatrefancy specialty paper. You can use it by itself or you can place any color paper you desire behind it to fit your project colors.

I used coastal cabana as my color behind the window sheet for a masculine yet soft baby look (if that makes sense).

My tips:  
  • pierce the oval shape from the back side of the paper to create bolder holes.
  • make a couple of your background images come to life by stamping them in a different color, cutting them out, then raising them up with a dimensional.
  • use the same stamp set to create a matching envelope.
  • Crumb cake envelopes are a great alternative to white envelopes for any card.

*Supplies used:
  • cardstock: crumb cake, whisper white, coastal cabana, midnight muse, crisp cantaloupe (for the heart shape)
  • designer series paper(DSP): quatrefancy specialty
  • inks: midnight muse, versamark, coastal cabana
  • stamps: cuddles & kisses, baby bundle (retired)
  • punches: scalloped border, owl (for the heart shape)
  • framelits: oval
  • linen thread
  • essentials paper piercing template & paper piercer
