“Happy Girls Are the Prettiest” – Audrey Hepburn

My baby shower card was such a hit that this happened…

I know – I can’t help but squeal when I hold them in my hands!

My next goal is to make the baby boy version of these cards! So so so sweet!

A Pink Dress for One!

I was asked to make a baby shower card for a friend…

I have to say that this card is so adorable especially in this pink color combination!

I made this using my silhouette! You can find the cutie design here!  My favorite part of the card is the inside with the hanger:

Hope this brings a smile to the mommy to be!

Bun in the Oven!

Love is in the details right?

I wanted to make this card simple but add a lot of details to show just how much love went into it.

First, I cut out the oven window and added clear cardstock to make it look like glass.  Then, I stamped two little white hearts on the oven window.  Next, I used distressed ink to get that lovely light pink color and sprayed the entire oven with shimmer frost spray.  Finally, I stamped the image on another piece of white cardstock and added stickles to the top of the cupcake and glossy accents to the cupcake wrapper.  Also, a little bling for the oven knobs!

Of course, I had to make a baby boy version:

Cute cute and cute!

Choo Choo All Aboard For Evan’s 1st Birthday!

I received a custom order for a Baby’s 1st Birthday Party!

I have to say of all the patterned baby paper, Martha Stewart still makes my absolute favorite, so I had to use it again!  I didn’t have enough sheets to make all the invites exactly the same so here are a few others:

Choo choo choo!

I remade this stork card for a custom order and wanted to share!

I made it on a much smaller scale and I like how it turned out!  Here is the previous post if you are interested in comparing! The only issue I had with the Glitter paper (on the previous card) was that the entire package of paper had a really strange smell that would not go away.  I tried leaving the paper out on my balcony hoping it would “air out” but the smell remained.  I ended up just tossing it! Live and learn!

Welcome Little One!

Thank heaven for little girls and little boys!

Finally, I have been able to use my molds from Mold Muse for this card! For my flower molds I cooked them in my NuWave oven for approximately 7 minutes. I let them cool for several minutes and then painted on a thin layer of gloss to give the flowers a nice shiny coat.  Without the gloss the clay comes out a little dull looking.

This is the first time I have used all brown ink for a card and I really gives the card a softer touch. I used my souffle pens to add little polk a doks to the baby clothes and added all my bling with the imaginiscne. I do have to warn you that you can really burn yourself if you are not careful! I’ve had two major burns and it’s hard to explain that you had a “craft” injury lol.

Stamps from Japan!

A stroll through little tokyo unveils a stamp heaven!

So to give these little stamps the love and attention they deserve I used the cuttlebug tags and clear cardstock! The tags were attached to the white cardstock using colorful brads.

There were over twenty different little stamps to choose from and a cute little case to keep them in! I love this set!

No Such Thing as Too Many Baby Clothes!

Why are baby cards so adorable?

This card looks so much better in real life, the photo does not do it justice but will have to do! I had no idea that PTI also makes die cuts which makes it a lot easier than cutting out stamped images.

Every time I think of storks, I always remember that wonderful scene from Dumbo!

I am so glad I got this baby stamp set because there is so much to do with it!

Baby baby baby!

Shake, rattle and roll…

I thought it would be great idea to make a baby card with a clear window so that I can stick a baby photo inside with a cute message!

The tricky thing about clear card stock is that you have to account for covering up the side where you attach the clear stock. But it actually turns out really cute because when you open up the card there’s the same border inside!
