Rock-a-Bye Baby!

Happy Sunday to you! I played along with the Our Creative Corner blog and made this fun 'It's a Boy' card based upon their sketch below! I love the tab on this card layout! It's was perfect for my little sentiment! I also found a NEW site called No Time to Stamp and loved their challenge: SOMETHING NEW! This could be anything new and for me this meant new supplies that I haven't used yet and a couple new blog challenges! Here are all the new things for me: a NEW card sketch, a NEW blog challenge, a NEW paper pack: Stampin' Up!'s Tall Tales DSP, and a NEW stamp set: Stampin' Up!'s Nursery Necessities set!

The tree in my card is from the Branch Out stamp set! Although this set isn't featured in the Idea Book & Catalog, it's on the Dormant List! These great sets are retiring tomorrow so January 4th will be the last day to order them! I am actually SUPER bummed that the Branch Out set is retiring! It's a great Two-Step Stampin' set and so versatile! I loved how it coordinates with the Tall Tales DSP! But you can still order from this Dormant List, just click on the Shop Now link below!

Stampin' Essentials tips:

-Isn't this little lion so cute!?! I punched him out with the 1-3/8" circle punch and layered him on the So Saffron Scallop Circle so he could have some of the spot light!
-My tree leaves were first stamped in Certainly Celery ink, then Old Olive ink on top for some depth (darker first, lighter in the background)
-The Round Tab punch was perfect for the sentiment! After punching this out of Rose Red card stock, I cut it in half (so it wasn't so bulky) and tucked it behind the Brilliant Blue card stock!
