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!

Knuffle Bunny

Hi!  The Greeting Farm had their Customer Challenge & Chit Chat Night "A Night at the Bookstore" and introduced a few challenges.  I have to say chatting was too fast for me and I couldn't really keep up.  It was still early here, and I had to pick up the kids from school and activities and make dinner and eat and so I guess the timing didn't really work out with our schedule. You can check out the challenge details on the SCS forum HERE.  I made this card for Favorite Child's Book category.  It is based on the Mo Willems book Knuffle Bunny.  It's one of my kids' favorites and it's such a cute story.  We actually love reading Mo Willems' books especially his Elephant and Piggie series.  Those books are hilarious!  This challenge also made me realize that I haven't read many books recently except kids' books.  I used to love reading but just haven't given it much time lately.  Anyway, here is my card.

If you've read the story, yo…

lots and lots of tags!

Hi!  I've been making a lot of tags lately trying to get ready for Christmas and I am finally done.

These were made with Lawn Fawn stamps and dies.  I love this set.  It is so cute and funny!

Here is the back of the tags.  I think these would be so fun to put on gifts for children.  They would think the tags are so funny!

Here are the polar bear tags.  I love this polar bear.  His expression is so cute!

I also made more of the tags I had made last year.  So these are all listed in my shop now.  I tried to make a lot at one time because I'm not sure if I'll be making more of these designs this year.  I want to make some newer ones with some of my dies that I have not used yet!  Trying so hard to not buy more than I can use.  Although sometimes that is so difficult!  I was really good in September and did not buy any new Mama Elephant or the cute Bitty Bears from Birdie Brown.  I had such restraint but who knows how long that will last t…
