Ahoy! It's A Boy!, Baby Boy Shower Invites, Jen Rose Creation, Stampin' Up!, Jennifer Sturgill, Guy Greetings, Watercolor, Anchor, Nautical, StampinUp

Hello everyone!  I wanted to share with you something I have been working on lately.  I recently finished making a bunch of baby shower invites for a customer, all info on the invite shown is fake just for sample/online sharing.  These invites use some current and retired products and was specifically designed per the customer’s wants.  She approached me and said she wanted something with blue, chevron, an anchor, and “Ahoy! It’s a boy!” but wasn’t liking what she saw available for purchase online.

Have you ever looked at invites, cards, etc. online and said “I want something more than that” or “I could do better”.  Well, with Stampin’ Up! you have that chance to custom design items to fit your tastes.

Something you might not know about me is that I am a big Disney fan!  I like to print things out for my scrapbooks that matches the fonts used at Disney.  Having these fonts came in extremely handy for these invites.  I used the font from Pirates of the Caribbean for the “Ahoy! It’s A Boy!” on this invite.  I printed out the shower details onto Very Vanilla Cardstock and then cut it down to 3-1/4″ x 5″.

The anchor was stamped in Night of Navy ink and then I quickly used a blender pen to pull some of the ink to color it in.  The rope was colored in with Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write Marker and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker for some depth.  I sponged Crumb Cake ink around the edges and distressed them before adhering to a 3-1/2″ x 5″ piece of Real Red Cardstock.  Tip: Don’t go over an area too much with a blender pen or the paper can start to pill up.

The Night of Navy Cardstock was embossed with the Retired Chevron embossing folder and then Craft Whisper White was sponged over the top to create a more distressed/nautical look.  Allow time for the craft ink to dry before adhering the invite all together.  Tip: I used the Sponge Dauber for this step to get a more controlled application.

I love that Stampin’ Up! has a wide array of products so you can make just about anything you can think up.

Happy Stamping!
