SIP Challenge 45 – Welcome Baby!

Home / 2015-2016 Annual Catalog / SIP Challenge 45 – Welcome Baby!

Another interesting day for me in Manhattan! I took the same train that I always do but decided to mix things up a bit and take the Subway from Jamaica Station. Thankfully I got a seat because there were some delays and it took just over an hour. There was also some guy on the train that was singing and dancing around for no good reason. It’s a little crowded in the mornings on the Subway to share your “talents” or lack there of! LOL! I was by myself until 2:00 when Mary came in. A Stampin’ Up! Demo from Wisconsin by the name of Melynn Long stopped by and we had a very nice visit! I made the 7:11 train and stopped by my parents for a bologna sandwich before coming home and wondering on my projects for the evening. Today I’ll be back at The Ink Pad with Barbara and the second Hand-lettering Class so I’ll be at the store until at least 9:30. I enjoyed sitting in on the class last time so I’m sure that it will be fun again!

It’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge time and this week we have a Welcome Baby Theme…

SIP Theme 45 800

I had a pram exactly like that when I was a baby! My card is a very non-traditional one! The base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the Simon Says Stamp Curved Edge Die to cut off the lower right of the card front. The background is a piece of Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper also cut with the Curved Edge Die and adhered to the card with E-Z Runner. I die cut a tag from a piece of Desert Storm 80lb with the Simon Says Stamp Large Tags Dies and tied a piece of Hemptique Natural Hemp Cord through the top. It’s adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. My fun pickle jar and greeting are fromΒ the Unity Stamp Co. In a Pickle Stamp Set. I stamped the pickle jar in Memento Tuxedo Black and used my Copics to color them in. A nice thick coating of Glossy Accents is applied over the “glass” to make it look nice and real! The jar is adhered to the tag with Foam Tape and then the greeting is stamped in Onyx Black in the lower right on the card inside. I think that it’s a nice funny congrats for an expectant mum! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! Head on over to the BLOG and see what the rest of the clever Design Team has come up with to inspire you! Don’t forget to share your card with us in the gallery! Thank you so much for your visit today! Have a superdelicious Tuesday! πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Leah! LOL! I didn’t even think of the baby bump! That’s great! Commuting is definitely always an adventure for sure! Enjoy your day! πŸ™‚

  1. Love this card Justin! The curved edge is so innovative! The color combo is sweet and the Glossy Accents really do enhance the jar to make it look like glass. I’ve tried using the Glossy Accents for this look but have had a problem with the card stock becoming misshapen. I think perhaps I put it on too thick or something. You have just the right touch and your artistry is amazing.

    It’s snowing here today. It won’t amount to much but it’s still a little disconcerting to be getting snow on the lilac buds! Hopefully weather in Manhattan and on the Island is better than what we have. Enjoy your day at The Ink Pad. I don’t think I’d care to be coming home that late. Love and hugs to you my friend – XXOO πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you Grace! Someone mentioned that the curved edge looked like a belly! Sometime when I use Glossy Accents it makes the paper curl too. But if I do it before I cut it out I can bend the paper back before it dries!
      SNOW?! OMG! What is going on! I spoke to my cousin Tracey in England yesterday and they had snow too! Yikes! The weather was rainy here but not too cold. I had a nice day at the store and the Hand Lettering class was fun! Love and hugs to you too! XOXO πŸ™‚

  2. I actually did have pickles and ice cream together once in my first pregnancy, and it wasn’t bad! I love the quirkiness of this card, brought back this forgotten memory!

  3. This is such a cute card, Justin. I love the pickle jar for this theme. My husband is a pickle lover and that stamp set would be perfect for his birthday card. Glossy Accents was perfect to make the jar seem like glass. One day you’ll have to show us some tips you are learning in the hand-lettering class. My handwriting gets worse as I get older. Have a great day in the city.

    1. Thanks HJ! I thought the pickles were a fun and different stamp and they look cool colored in with Copics and all shiny! I too am a pickle lover! The Hand Lettering class is great, I’m going to start to practice again and I will share tips for sure! Hope that you enjoyed your Tuesday! πŸ™‚
