Baby Card


I was asked about the baby cards I made, so here is one so you can see the texturized detail better! I love that it has the look of seersucker fabric! Don't you?

I kept mine very simple, however you could make yours with lacy sleeves, neckline, add tiny buttons, and even snaps across the bottom! 

Don't forget to share your creative ideas!

Baby, I've been busy!

Here is my latest project, a pretty big one at that! 

I've made a package of 25 cards, all adorable baby onesies! I thought they would make wonderful thank you cards for the mother-to-be to send out!   
 
I found my basic instructions here at Lauren's blog

I ran my cards thru the Big Shot with the texturizing plates. I love that they have a seersucker look! I wanted to keep them simple and am very pleased with the finished product!

Recipe

Paper: Pastel colored cardstock, I used Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze, Certainly Celery, So Saffron, and Almost Amethyst and Glossy White.
Stamps: Short & Sweet and an incentive stamp.
Ink: Whisper White Craft
Embellishments: White Embossing Powder, Oval 
Punch, Scalloped Oval Punch, 1 3/4" Circle Punch, and White Taffeta Ribbon.

I'm back!

Some say: "When life hands you lemons, make lemonade!" Others say: "When life knocks you to your knees, you are in perfect position for prayer!"
I have learned that when the going gets tough, I've got to put my praise ON! It doesn't take rocket science to see how far I've come or Who to give the credit to! Time and time again, He has always been there, always come thru, and will always be my faithful provider! 
I hope you know how loved you are, even in the midst of adversity!


Here is my entry for LNStampersconvention09 Challenge #20! The requirements were to use Old Olive, Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip and Kraft Colors.
I wanted to make a card for Father's Day, so this met both needs! Too bad we didn't have a stamp that says something like: "Big Stories Told Here!" LOL
Anyways, I hope the message I convey to my dad is that he is a great catch!!! I am so fortunate!

Recipe

Stamps: Under The Stars and Just Beachy
Paper: Old Olive, Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip and Kraft

Embellishments: Black Embossing Powder, Old Olive and Ruby Red Stampin Write Markers Signo Gel Pen, Brass Eyelets, Big Shot Texturz Plates and Sizzlits Billboard Decorative Strip Die, Small Tag and Tag Punch, Natural Hemp Twine, and Dimensionals.
