Ooooo Baby!




My darling SIL commissioned me to make her a dozen baby cards; 4 girl, 4 boy, and 4 neutral. After I finished the notecards and bookmarks for her I started on the baby cards last night. It was a super busy week; friends over 1 night, out 2 nights in a row...one for a belated bday celebration and the other at my friend Joanne's (she's a new SU! demo!!) who hosted a FABULOUS project workshop. I had to leave before I finished so I'll post pictures of my finished product later.


But I digress...


So I came up with this design last night as I thought of all things 'girlie'!
******************
Basic Recipe:
Cardstock: Martha Stewart in Pink Carnation (card base), SU! Rose Red, SU! Designer Paper in Petals and Paisleys
Stamps: SU! Baby Firsts, Fiskars acrylic stamps in "Baby", SU! Warmest Regards ( inside sentiment reads 'Congratulations')
Ink: Versamark - for safety pins on Rose Red, SU! Basic Black classic ink
Embellishments: Making Memories tiny brads, Pink Sakura sparkly pen for safety pins, SU! 1/4 " grosgrain ribbon in Apple Green and Light Pink, foam Pop-dots for the baby's pj's!


Now I have 2 more girl cards to make, 4 boy and 4 neutral! That's on the agenda for today!
Hope everyone is having a creative start to the long weekend!!!

Way cute! Well done with the paper piecing. One of my favorite techniques. Feels like dressing paper dolls! Thanks for the props on my workshop last week. You're going to LOVE LOVE LOVE the big blooms. Remind me to show you the kissing technique (I mean stamps kissing, not people.... oh how things have changed LOL ROTFL)I think it would make a funky bloom.
