Baby Tees Baby Girl

I made this card for my old neighbours.  They had a beautiful baby girl earlier this year!

I used the colours Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery and Whisper White.  The Baby Tees jumbo wheel is so cute!  I rolled it in Staz On black ink on watercolour paper and then cut it out and coloured it in using my aqua painter and ink pads.

Of course, the embossed dots are made using the Big Shot and the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  And the sentiment comes from the stamp set Well Scripted.

Thanks for looking 🙂

A beautiful new baby

Congratulations, Michele and David! On 9 April 2009, my dear friend Michele gave birth to a healthy baby girl, Elise (beautiful name, isn’t it?). Elise is so lucky because besides having fantastic parents, she also has two big sisters to dote on her.

This is the card I made for Elise …

It’s a shaker card … with SU pink chunky sprinkles to shake in the window. I’ve always had a facsination when looking at cards with sprinkles in newsagents. Do you ever find that? Now I can’t believe I’ve made one! Need to pinch myself … LOL!!

Around the outside of the card, I’ve used my new A Rose is a Rose stamp set … it’s so elegant! I’ve stamped the two step big rose in Pink Pirouette and Pretty in Pink. I love love love it!! LOL!!

And in the shaker window I’ve stamped the sentiment from God’s Blessings in Riding Hood Red and butterflies from Priceless in Pink Pirouette. I tied the coordinating Pink Pirouette striped grosgrain ribbon around the base of the card …

I love the Flower Fusion Too felt flowers … and the new designer buttons!! They coordinate perfectly …

And inside I stamped the rose in the same colours and used the word “wonderful” from Wonderful Favourites … and the words “new baby” from the new Level 2 hostess stamp set … Occasions for All. The sentiment is so true … Elise is a Wonderful New Baby :))

Dazzling Baby cards

I’ve a few baby cards to show you today. The first two are from my embossing class the other night.

For these cards, everyone used the jumbo wheel with Nursery Letters and then embossed with Heat & Stick power and Dazzling Diamonds for a sparkling effect! Gosh, it looks even better in real life! Then we embossed the prams from Simple Somethings with silver embossing powder … and everyone could colour as they pleased to suit their events! I’ve coloured the baby girl’s card in Pretty in Pink using the Stampin’ Up! pastels …

I’ve coloured in the baby boy’s card using Bashful Blue from my Stampin’ Up! pastels …

This is a close up … I love the Heat & Stick plus Dazzling Diamonds effect, don’t you!?!

Then I had a card left over, so this is an additional card I made. This time I used the baby stamp from In the Stars (available in the Summer Mini) and stamped it in Versamark and then Barely Banana Ink … and then embossed it. I’ve used a metal edge tag to add elegance to the card and I used the Certainly Celery DSP to punch out the scallop circle that I’ve layered the baby stamp onto. I hope that makes sense!

And, lastly, white taffeta ribbon finished off all of the cards.

Baby Masking make and take

I really love the simplicity and elegance of these two cards.  They were great fun to make because I used the masking technique and the way I’ve attached taffeta ribbon is clever, yet it is so easy to attach that even a card-making beginner, who may find it challenging to look upon, would find it simple to do.

I’ve used the colours Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery and Barely Banana for the baby boy’s card:

And I’ve used the colours Pretty in Pink , Certainly Celery and Barely Banana for the baby girl’s card:

I think these would be great cards for a “make and take” or a “stamp-a-stack”.  I’ll be using them as “make and takes” on the weekend and I’m sure they’ll be a hit!

The stamp sets I’ve used are All Year Fun to decorate the balls with lots of Dazzling Diamonds and Short and Sweet for the message “Welcome Baby”.  Short and Sweet has to one of the most versatile and useful stamp sets I have!  I love it!

Short & Sweet Onesie Baby Card

I came across this ever-so-cute baby card a little while ago and then … no babies! So, now we have a new baby in the family (my cousin’s baby), I had the perfect reason to make this adorable onesie card … originally created and inspired by the talented Lauren Meader. You too can learn from Lauren because she kindly shared a tutorial for this card on her blog here.

In addition to making a onesie card … I also have the chance to play with my new Short & Sweet set (20% off this month) … perfect!!

I’ve used the colours Almost Amethyst and Lovely Lilac for this card … even on the flower! Of course, although it is not so noticeable in the photo, I have also used Dazzling Diamonds on the nappy pins. I hope it is a nice keepsake for mum and dad to keep for their new baby girl.

Thanks for looking!
