Baby Boy Card

Another friend from HS just had her first little boy last week.  He is hairy, and oh so cute!  I love hairy babies--I only had one out of six with hair that really mattered.  He looked like the Hobbit at birth, but I digress...I made a set of cards for this friend (whose son does NOT look like the Hobbit), so she could use them however she likes.  The inside is blank.  Enjoy!
My daughter was very concerned that I would forget to cut out the tail when I was paper-piecing, but then I showed her the magic of stamping the image on the white paper first.  She was duly impressed.
Paper: PTI White, Spring Rain, Pure Poppy, Bitty Dot Basics, SU Kraft

  1. So far I have managed to not add the cute little baby blessings to my collection.....but when I see cute cards, it gets harder and harder!!! Love your bitty dot elephant! An the scallop trim completes the fun and whimsy! :>

  2. Cute Card! I just love that baby set.

  3. Very cute! Love the paper piecing! Hmm, i looked like a rooster (or a very "cool" kid with a mohawk) when I was born... both my brother and I did... think it runs in the family. They spent a whole hour trying to comb my little mohawk down in time for the baby pics... high maintence for me started at a young age ;-)

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.
PTI White and Dark Indigo cardstock Ink: Versamark, Copics, PTI Hawaiian Shores, Blueberry Sky, Raspberry Fizz, Lovely Lady, HA Navy

Do it anyway.

Oh how much I've needed to hear this all week.  
Thank you to Beth for a very insightful and thought-provoking post.  More cards to come soon.
