Sweet Baby…

None of my friends are having babies, that’s for sure…but I do have younger friends who are and the older I get, the more special the birth of a baby is for me.

When I first saw the Something for Baby stamp set and matching framelits, I knew instantly I had to have that set.  It has so many cute stamps and my mind  was spinning with ideas…it still is.  Here is today’s card…

And, paired with the Lullaby DSP  you just can’t mess up!  I may re-do the diaper pin and heat emboss with silver embossing powder…just thinking how to make it better all the time.  But, it is still “stinkin’ cute” and now I’m thinking matching invitations and paper favors and decorations…you see how I wear myself out?

Would you like to make a similar card?  Here is the Stuff ‘N Digits

Stuff:

  • Paper:  Whisper White cardstock, Lullaby DSP
  • Ink:  Crisp Cantaloupe and Smoky Slate
  • Stamps:  Something for Baby and Baby, We’ve Grown (sentiment)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Flip Circle Framelit, Something for Baby Framelit, Banners Framelit, 3/8″ white ribbon, silver brad.

Digits:

  • The base card measured 5 3/8″ x 8 1/2″.  I threaded the DSP under the cutting edge so that only the circle end cut the paper.  Then I folded the card like an easel instead of a flip card.  I used another piece of DSP 5 3/8″ wide to cut the front of the card and trimmed it to the fold of the easel card.
  • A contrasting DSP 5 3/8″ x 2″ was cut for the inside base of the card.
  • Cut the scallop circle from the opposite side of the DSP.  Stamp and cut out with framelit the baby buggy.  The trim is retired but I think the new Venetian Crochet Lace would be even prettier.
  • Cut the larger of the banners out of the reverse side of the DSP and stamp the sentiment from Baby, We’ve Grown and cut out with smaller banner framelit.
  • Add the bow and the safety pin with the flower and you all set.

I love making baby cards.  They are so sweet and pastel.  Maybe something you saw here today will inspire you to a new creation.  Please write to me if you ever have a question about a post.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…”Grandpa’s are there to help children get into mischief they haven’t thought of yet.”

I’m inky and happy!
