RemARKable Stamp of the Month Blog Tour - Ciao, Baby!

Welcome to the RemARKable Stamp of the Month Blog Tour.  This month some of our most talented RemARKable teammates are showing you many different ways to use the Ciao, Baby! stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Spring Catalog. 

Here's my first creation:
It's been a while since I sent my husband a card at work.  This one will go in the mail tomorrow.
I paired the Ciao, Baby! stamp set with Fabulous Phrases to create this card.  I ran the Pool Party Core'dinations paper through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, then sanded it.  I punched the stamped image using the new Sale-a-Bration Petite Curly Label punch, then backed it with a cut layer of Island Indigo.   I stamped the "forever" using the Fabulous Phrases stamp set, then punched it out with the Curly Label punch.  I've entered this card in the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

Here's my second creation:

This is the first completed card that I made with the Dress Up framelits. They are too cute!!!  The bottom layer of the dress is made from a Floral District designer series paper, then I added a hem of Primrose Petals followed by a Paper Doily layer.   I completed the ensemble with a string of pearls.
