More Baby

I haven't posted for a while, but that's not to say I haven't been busy...I have actually been working on projects to submit to publications. I've never done that before, so I'm a little intimidated, but what have I got to lose?

Here are a couple of baby cards I've made recently. This first one I paper-pieced the onesie and the little bunny, and I added a little sparkle with a clear stardust pen on all of the lavender dots (click to enlarge). The card is 4 1/4" square.


I spent entirely too much time on this second one, trying to make it perfect. I am happy with the results, though.


You'd never know it from my (lack of) photography skills, but these two pictures are of the same card. The first one shows the colors better, but the second one shows the depth and paper-piecing better. I punched out 3 squares from the Spring Rain cardstock, then stamped the boats and paper-pieced them. The ribbon really is Pure Poppy, I promise. Help me!

Paper: PTI White, Bitty Baby Blessings PP, Lavender Moon, SU Mellow Moss

  1. Second picture is way better... less flat looking... Dont you hate it when your photography is not as good as your crafting??? Happens to me all the time! Love both your cards.. especially that little boat.

  2. I love these cards! Too cute!

    And if only I still lived in the UC. I think I would have much better stories than in SLC, but I would have killed myself first.

  3. Both of these cards are great! I love the glitter you added to the first one...I'll bet that took a while, though! Very cute baby cards.

Birthday Card for My Sister

I made this birthday card for my sister, and I love how it turned out.  This large stamp is from Concord & 9th, called Hello, Lovely.  I colored it with Altenew's new markers, then added touches of a gold Wink of Stella marker.  I didn't want the sentiment to compete with the image, so I embossed it in gold on vellum.  Beautiful stamp!

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…

Fresh Cut Poppies

I love poppies.  Every time I see a poppy stamp set, I am drawn to it.  I've had my eye on this set from The Ton for a while, and I was lucky enough to borrow it from a friend.  It is really easy to line up the layers, and I love the realistic look.
The sentiment is from Right At Home, and I happen to really love the quote and its author

He really did.  I'm so glad.
