Stampin' Up! Sahara Sand


Welcome to week 41 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations blog hop for 2022. This week's feature colour is Sahara Sand, which is a member of the Neutrals colour group.

This week I have chosen to create a baby girl card just so as I have one in my stash. I thought that Sahara Sand would blend nicely with Basic White and Blushing Bride. I also thought it was time to ink up the All for Baby bundle once again.

I have used Sahara Sand cardstock as the base for my card and then added a piece of Subtles DSP for the background. I have then die cut a piece of Basic White cardstock using the largest of the Scalloped Contour dies. I have then stamped the clothesline using Early Espresso and then embossed the piece using one of the very cute Dotty Hearts embossing folders. 

I have die cut the baby jumpsuits from a couple of pieces of the Abstract Beauty DSPs and the pegs to hold them on the clothesline have been die cut using Gold foil. I have stamped the teddy in Sahara Sand and for the bow I have used 2 pieces of Bakers Twine in White but for one of them I have used a Blending Brush and the Blushing Bride stamp pad to create a pale pink twine.The close up below shows the gorgeous detail of the Dotty Hearts embossing folder and the coloured Twine.

The sentiment is from Celebrating You, one of the very versatile sentiment stamp sets in the current mini catalogue, and I have stamped it on Sahara Sand cardstock and embossed in white. Finally a couple of cute Blushing Bride hearts have been added. 

Next in tonight's blog hop is  our lovely host Cathy Proctor. I look forward to seeing what beautiful creation she has to share with us tonight.

  1. Theresa, that Abstract Beauty DSP is just perfect for those tiny little jumpsuits. I also love the dotty hearts embossing folder - such an adorable card!

  2. Very pretty little suits and bear on your card Theresa. Always good to have a new arrival card on hand.

  3. A really sweet baby card, Theresa, I love those little jumpsuits hanging and the teddy bear. The embossed background with the hearts is a great choice too.

  4. Oh my goodness, how cute do the little clothes look, die cut from those papers??!! I love how you used Sahara Sand on this card, T. The sentiment white-embossed on Sahara Sand (and embellished with the tiny heart) looks great. Love the pegs, the embossing, and all the lovely details. x

  5. What a totally delightful baby card Theresa! The jumpsuits look amazing cut from those papers. Perfect for a baby girl card.
