Baby and Thank You


Here are a couple of baby cards--one for a girl and one for a boy.  I will often make sets of 10 cards for new mommies when I go to baby showers.  I figure they can use them how they want--thank-yous, announcements, whatever.  I leave the sentiments pretty generic.  This first card's onesie is paper-pieced (stamp the image on patterned paper and cut out) and popped up on dimensional tape.  BTW, you may see other versions of this (pink) layout again.  It's so easy--I just punch out a square and stamp or adhere the image in the window.  I've done Christmas cards, baby cards, thank-you cards, etc. with this same format; just different images and sentiments.

I just love this Bitty Baby Blessings set.  So very cute.  Here's a tip--the Creamy Caramel marker from SU comes pretty close in color to the kraft paper.  It's what I used to color the boat.

Here's a slightly different version of a card I posted earlier.  This time, I stamped the flowers on PTI adhesive sheets and cut them out.  So much easier than using adhesive for a big area like that.  And did I mention how much I love that red Stardust pen?

  4. I love the sailor card. It is adorable! I also really like the onsie you made with the PP. I didn't think to stamp that onto PP, but the small dots are just the right proportion for the onsie. Great idea and love the simplicity of the card but it still really pops.

    Thanks for sharing!

Lil' Inker Designs Mini Release Blog Hop

Hello, friends!  So glad you're here, hopping with us.  (Go here to see the full blog hop order.)  I am excited to show you this brand new stamp from Lil' Inker Designs, which is part of their May Mini Release.  Leave comments on any of the blogs in this hop to enter to win one of the new stamp sets, the new cover plate, or the angel pets goodies!  Details on the Lil' Inker Designs Blog.

This stamp is called Never Regret Being Kind. (Keep hopping, and you'll see more!)


One of the things I love most about this hobby is that it is inherently kind.  So what could be better than a stamp that encourages even more kindness?  Such a great sentiment!

This stamp is easy to use as the focal point of a card...so easy, in fact, that I made 4 right out of the gate!  Each one uses a different technique--this stamp is so versatile.

For my first, I heat embossed the sentiment in white on steel grey cardstock.  I then colored over the embossing with my Copics for a multicolored effect…

National Craft Month Celebration Blog Hop

Hello, friends!  I am honored to be a part of the National Craft Month Celebration Blog Hop with Right at Home Stamps.  Hopefully you've come from Linda's blog.

We are celebrating our hobby of papercrafting by bringing our community together and spending a day doing what we love.  Come hop with all of us, leave comments along the way, and you will be entered to win this awesome stamp set:



It's called "Make Something Beautiful", and it is being released today.  It's so fun to have a stamp set that is dedicated to our love of all things crafty--scrapbooking, painting, cardmaking, sewing, and any and all combinations of the above.  Here are two cards I've made with this set.  Those tools begged to be paper-pieced with some sparkly silver paper!

For this one I heat embossed the images in white on navy cardstock, as well as fussy cutting the tools out of the silver paper.  Then I used a Copic marker to shade the hearts and sentiment in red for a pop of color.

Papertrey Blog Hop-March

It has been a long time, but I thought I'd jump back in to the Papertrey Blog Hop this month.  I couldn't resist creating something with these beautiful patterns as inspiration.


Here's my take on it:

I used the Anniversary Set: Painted Petals, a combination of heat embossing, coloring with Copics on that heat embossing, fussy cutting and die cutting.  Very fun.
