Welcome Fairy Baby

February 4, 2017

I am attending a baby shower for a friend next weekend and needed a card.  I also just bought the Puffy Cloud Borders and wanted to play with them. My friend is expecting her third child and first girl, so I went all out girly!

Details

Size:  Horizontal top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I started with a whole sheet of water color paper. I used half of it to make the card base, and the other half for the cloud borders and fairies. I die cut all of the borders first. Then, I played with the layout. Once I had decided on the placement, I ink blended some Distress Inks on the top edges of the cloud borders. I stamped some stars all over the clouds with the same distress inks. I used second generation stamping to achieve a softer color. Then, I adhered the cloud layers to the card base.

Using the scraps from the water color paper, I stamped and heat embossed the fairies. I used silver embossing powder. I used the same ink color for the fairies’ dresses that I used on the cloud borders. Once the fairies were dry, I fussy cut them out.

For the sentiment, I found some dotted velum in my scrap bin. I silver embossed the sentiment and then used a banner die cut to cut them out. I folded the welcome banner to give it some dimension. I used glue dots behind the letters on the banners to adhere it to the cloud layers. Lastly, I adhered the fairies with dimensional glue dots.

Welcome Baby Snowman Pop-Up

December 31, 2016

I don’t know how it happened or how I survived, but I did. I have made it through another December. The kiddos had a great holiday season with visits to Santa, plays, gatherings with family and friends, baking sessions, and many gifts to open. My poor blog has been much neglected this month. I am taking this last day of 2016 to post everything I made in December. The details may be scarce but at least there are pictures.

There are many new babies arriving this month. This is a pop-up card, I made for a family friend expecting baby #5. I was looking through my stash and found a few snowmen that would make a cute baby card for a winter baby.

Welcome Baby Dinos

December 31, 2016

I don’t know how it happened or how I survived, but I did. I have made it through another December. The kiddos had a great holiday season with visits to Santa, plays, gatherings with family and friends, baking sessions, and many gifts to open. My poor blog has been much neglected this month. I am taking this last day of 2016 to post everything I made in December. The details may be scarce but at least there are pictures.

This card is for a family friend who welcomed baby #3 a few days ago. The new baby has two big bothers that are very excited to meet her.

Welcome Baby Chick Card

December 31, 2016

I don’t know how it happened or how I survived, but I did. I have made it through another December. The kiddos had a great holiday season with visits to Santa, plays, gatherings with family and friends, baking sessions, and many gifts to open. My poor blog has been much neglected this month. I am taking this last day of 2016 to post everything I made in December. The details may be scarce but at least there are pictures.

A cousin of mine just welcomed her 3rd baby. I made this card with one chick for each of her children. I love the Chirpy Chirp Chirp set, it’s so cute.

Hey There, Baby Boy

June 1, 2016

I made this baby card for a new baby boy.

Details

Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I ink blended both the rectangle piece and the center panel with Distress Inks. While the Distress inks where still a bit wet, I stamped a background stamp in white pigment ink over the top. I was hoping it would be more visible when I did it. But the effect that was created is really cool. I think I will try this again. I popped the center panel up on fun foam.

Stamps Used: Lawn Fawn’s Into the Woods, Mom + Me, Chevron Backdrops, and Sophie’s Sentiments

Dies Used: Lawn Fawn’s Small Stitched Rectangles. The center piece was created with my Cricut machine

Ink: Distress Inks in Salty Ocean, Tumbled Glass, Twisted Citron, and Mowed Lawn

Hope you enjoyed the card

Friends of ours welcomed their second daughter into the world a few days ago. The baby’s middle name is Rose, so I couldn’t resist adding some roses to this card design.

Welcome Baby Boy Turtle

June 25, 2015

When I updated my blog in February 2016, I lost all the posting I had already done. I am doing my best to put the posts back up but I do not remember all the details for each card.  Unfortunately, the details for this project may be a bit scarce.

A family friend is welcoming a baby boy into their family soon. This is the card I made for them. I got the idea for the shaped card from Sandy Allnock’s YouTube channel.
