Hello Baby!

Awww, I love babies! I have a new lil nephew and I was inspired to create this card for the occassion!

I also love this stamp set! Fox & Friends is such an adorable set! Who can resist the fox, whale, turtle, giraffe, lion, owl and lil monkey! I see endless possibilities with this stamp set. I need to use these stamps more often!

The "hello baby" is stamped using the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. The words coordinated perfectly with the oval punch and scallop oval punch.

I used the Stampin' Up! colors Marina Mist and Crumb Cake. I thought they were perfect for a lil boy!

Lastly, I used the Scallop Edge Border punch on a 2" strip of First Edition Specialty Designer Series Paper, then I ran the paper through the Crimper, placed sticky strip along the back and placed it on the card to give it a ruffled effect! It added nice texture to this card!

Now, I am off to go see the new addition to our family! Enjoy your day!

Do it yourself....

I was making cards for a swap recently and I noticed my card needed a little extra something. I liked the color combination I was using, but I did not have any Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper on hand that coordinated with my card so I decided to make my own! I used the Fine Flourish stamp to create the design on some Melon Mambo card stock.

All Stampin' Up! supplies used:
  • Fine Flourish stamp
  • Melon Mambo card stock
  • Basic Gray card stock
  • Top Note die cut
  • Fun Flowers die cut
  • Square Lattice embossing folder
  • Designer Buttons
  • Linen Thread
  • Dimensionals
  • Basic Black ink
  • Oval Punch
  • Scallop Oval Punch

I stamped the small flower and the accent paper beneath the scalloped oval to tie it all together! I love how I was able to use what I had to create this card!  I cannot forget to mention how much I love my embossing folders too! What would I do without my Big Shot??? Yikes!
