Welcome Baby Cards

Hello stampers,

Several of my acquaintances have had babies in the last month. There are so many cute handmade baby cards out there but I don't have hardly any baby themed stamp sets. I made these card with stamps from "all occasion" stamp set.


The die cuts are what makes these cards extra special and precious.  I'm only showing the pink version but the boy versions are just as beautiful. It's amazing what a little pink or blue cardstock die cut with a sweet sentiment will make.

On the first card, the foot print is embossed using light pink embossing powder and Versamark ink.

Both cards are available on my Etsy Shop, Handmade by Kathie K.

Happy stamping!


Wedding Keepsake Card

Hello fellow stampers,

This next project, I have to admit, took a lot longer than I expected.  However, once I figured out the design, the card came together very quickly and the time it took to plan was well worth it.  I love how this wedding card turned out!

It's actually more than a card but a keepsake that could adorn the new couples home as a sweet memory of their very special day. Even though this card was completed as a wedding card, the same card could be used as an anniversary card, birthday card, or welcoming the new addition to the family.




Hopefully these step-by-step instructions will help you make this card very quickly.  All of the supplies are listed below.

Oriental themed note cards

Hello stampers,

I really like making oriental themed noted cards.  They can be used for almost any sentiment - thank you, sympathy, thinking of you, or just a note card. Below is a set of 5 note cards that I made for a gift.

All the cards are 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 and each one has a matching envelope.

Three of these card use polished stone paper that I made - I have an earlier post that gives you the instructions.  I think the oriental stamped images look great with the paper colors. The embellishments are little different on each card - each one has a ribbon or cording in different colors and textures. I really had a lot fun making these cards.  I hope you give this a try.




You can see this set and many more on my Etsy shop.  
Thanks for stopping by. Happy stamping.
