We sell our handcrafted greeting cards at Brushstrokes and Blessings, a giftshop in the Lemoyne Farmers Market. Since we finished the Easter selection, we’re working now on weddings and babies. One of the customers asked specifically for these. You can purchase our cards at the market, or make them yourself with supplies from our on-line store at www.stampexpressstore.com. You can use our ideas for free!
These baby cards feature the giraffe stamp from Stampendous, Debbie Mumm background paper, Copic markers, Prima flowers. and May Arts ribbons. Gems are from BoBunny. Shapes are die cuts from Spellbinders. We now have 16 different die sets in stock from Spellbinders.
March is National Craft Month. Start it off by making these cards.
Giraffe Baby Card
Blue Baby Giraffe
These adorable animal images from Stampendous make really cute baby cards. They are even good for a young child’s birthday card. We colored ours with Copic markers, layered with K&Company designer papers and accented with Morex ribbon. The lace doily is cut out with the Cricut. All cardstock is Stamp Express quality cardstock.
For a more vintage baby card we used Magenta stamps and the same papers. Words were rub-ons from our stash. All products except the Magenta stamp are available at www.stampexpressstore.com. Or you can purchase the finished cards at Brushstrokes and Blessings in the West Shore Farmers Market in Lemoyne, PA.

Baby Lion Card
Bundle of Joy
We had so much fun last weekend at the Gettysburg Scrappers Dream Vacation. Thanks to those who supported our booth. It was great to see old friends and also to make some new friends. We’ll see you all at the Hagerstown SDV in August.
We wanted to make a baby layout using our new Stampendous stamps, but we didn’t get quite done. Here are half of them. Barb Barton designed these. Really CUTE! We thought we would make a title with these tags and spell out the word “BABY”. Both the lion and elephant are colored with Copic markers. The stamps are Stampendous cling stamps, ink is Memento, tags are our own die cuts from Accucut, ribbon from Morex. The lace doilies and other trims are from Barb’s stash. We still have to make the “A” and “Y” tags with the giraffe and zebra. You can purchase most of these items at www.stampexpressstore.com. The zebra stamp will be coming later.
Baby Elephant Tag
Baby Lion Tag
Brushstrokes and Blessings asked us to make some baby cards for them to sell. It just so happened that we were using this adorable giraffe stamp from Stampendous for a class we’re teaching at a trade show next month. So, these cards were “born”! The giraffes were colored with Copic markers. The cardstock is our own quality cardstock. Designer paper is from BoBunny and Colorbok. The ovals are Spellbinders Nesties. And I just LOVE the ruffled ribbon from Morex. I think we will soon be selling this at our on-line store. Hopefully we will have the stamps to sell in about 2 weeks also. Keep checking back at www.stampexpressstore.com.
