6 Fabulous and Quick Cards with Ciao Baby from Stampin’ Up!

By | 05/08/2013

Featured Retiring Products Series:  Ciao Baby, Summer Smooches and Soft Subtles Designer Series Papers, Bashful Blue and Pretty in Pink


I love when inspiration hits and you just make a bunch of cards in an hour with one basic theme and one great stamp set!  I chose the Ciao Baby stamp set that coordinates with a bunch of my punches and one thing led to…well, 6 quick cards!

ciao_baby1I started with two baby cards.  This used the Bashful Blue and Pretty in Pink papers, ribbons and inks which are retiring.  I used the Curly Label Punch and the 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch for my image.  These are clean and simple cards that are very quick to make.

I followed these up with some colorful Happy Day cards using my favorite Summer Smooches paper.

ciao_baby2I coordinated this with tempting turquoise card stock and ink along with daffodil delight ribbon.  I used the curly label punch, the petite punch and the scallop edge border punch for these cards.  Again, clean, simple and quick to make!

Finally, I made 2 small 3 x 3″ cards for a couple of my students who did well on a test!  I think they make cute little rewards!!


The only addition here is the 1-1/4″ scallop circle punch and some melon mambo polka dot ribbon, along with some corner rounding on the cards and dsp!

The punches that coordinate with the stamp sets make card making so quick and easy.  Gone are the days when we have to snip those out with scissors!!!
