Oh Baby Cards

Thought I'd take a break from posting all the teacher gifts and stationary sets. I do have some more of those to share. But today I wanted to post cute baby cards. The one above uses the Oh Baby stamp set from The Greeting Farm. The layout was inspired by a card on Papertrey Ink (PTI) but I can't seem to find it on their blog anymore. In any case, there were 3 floral images on the front and I just thought that was so nice and clean looking. I had the embossed vellum paper (K & Co. I think) for many years (6 years maybe?) and finally used it. I was a bit of a paper hoarder but I am so much better now. I even let my kids use my paper scraps so they can make their own card/craft creations. Allows me to buy more paper faster! "Happiness" is a rub on from a Stampin' Up set.

This next card uses the same stamp set. It's a basic shaker card--lots of tutorials out there on how to make one. Splitcoast Stampers has one here. The background paper and card stock are from PTI. Ever since Cheryl got me the Corner Chomper, I like making rounder corners on my cards. That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

I have to think of some other adjectives other than cute! Your coloring looks really nice! And what beautiful rounded corners! Ha ha! I have think I may have you beat in the supplies hoarding department. I hate cutting into nice paper, like I'll ruin it!

no BUTTS about it

Hello!  Today I have a series of cards to share which I think are super cute and funny too.  I love Birdie Brown's stamp sets available at MFT and the cards today uses the behind images of the cat, dog & pig found in Cool Cat, Lucky Dog and Hog Heaven. 

I had a couple of ideas for the design of this card but I felt the sentiment called for multiple images of the animal's behind.  I just couldn't let there be one image and the sentiment have plural Butts.  I know that is weird of me but things like that drive me a little crazy.  I won't get into how people misuse plural and possessive s though.  That really drives me crazy.  Anyway, so then I thought this would be a cute way to stamp multiple images over the card.  I created the sentiment on the front using an alphabet set from Lawn Fawn.

This is the sentiment on the inside which comes in the Cool Cat stamp set.

Here is the dog version.  These cards took a lot of time to color!

Papertrey November Blog Hop Challenge

Hi!  It's been a while since I participated in one of PTI's blog hop challenges.  But I had to play along this month.  Not only did I place an order on release night but I also got my goodies in about a week!  So I had some time to play around with my new stamps and dies.  Hehe.  Below is the inspiration photo.

I love the Christmas theme and the colors too so I went with that.

When I saw the newly released penguin stamp and die, I had to get them.  So cute!!  I thought this penguin would make a cute spinner card too.  Similar to the froggy one I made HERE.  I also used PTI's In the Meadow dies.  I used the die itself and my hobby blade to cut along the curved edge to create the little cut out for the penguin to slide.  I did that twice leaving a quarter inch space between them.

I layered the penguin with PTI's coasters.

I added a tiny bell to his hat.

He slides down.  The jingle all the way sentiment is from Tiny Treats Xmas.  Just traced the space with a pencil and curv…

I wheelie like you!

Hello!  I started making some Valentine's Day cards for my shop.  I love Lawn Fawn stamps and their punny sayings!  So I used a bunch of their stamps recently.  And I totally thought I would be good and not get anything from their new release but those dies!  I want the Fancy Box and the Scalloped Box Card Pop up! 

Here is one of the cards I've made recently using Lawn Fawn's Wheelie Like You set.  I had to do some selective stamping to stamp the Wheelie three times and in red.  I use a small post it and cover up the words I do not want to be inked up.  Then I remove the post its and stamp only the word I want.

Here's a close up.  I fussy cut the little guinea pig out and adhered him onto the wheel.  Wait, he is a guinea pig, right?  Could he also be a hamster?

Well, hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.  We had an incredible day of traffic yesterday!  My husband and daughter were stuck on the road for about 5 hours.  If you live on Oahu, you know what I'm talking a…
