All Occasions Stamp a Stack cards/Up,Up and Away/Baby

My All Occasions Stamp a Stack was a big hit! I really enjoy designing cards for all different occasions and I know that many people who papercraft, don't always have the time to "just whip out a card" for different occasions, so this class helps immensely in getting some cards stashed ahead. The first one I am sharing is my personal favorite.  It uses the Up, Up and Away stamp set along with Petite Pairs(sentiment). I used some of our gorgeous Soft Suede Taffeta ribbon, and my FAVORITE embellishments, the Vintage Trinkets.  If you look closely to the yellow ballon, you will see that the brads are really buttons! We ran Very Vanilla cardstock through the Big Shot using one of the new Edgelit embossing folders from the Occasions Mini and I turned mine around so the hearts were interverted , and then stamped the balloons using Certainly Celery, and Baja Breeze, the buckets using Sahara Sand and the clouds also Baja Breeze.  Using the Owl Punch, we punched out a Cherry Cobbler heart(my FAVORITE RED!)  Then stamped Welcome Baby onto Very Vanilla and punched out with the small oval punch,(sorry, I can't remember the proper and "pinned" it to the ribbon using the safety pins from Vintage Trinkets.  Come back in the next couple of days as I will be showcasing all our cards throughout the week.
