A baby always touches your heart strings…and it is super fun to make a special card in the celebration! Last weekend when Hannah was home, she shared with me that a co-worker was getting ready to have a baby and they knew that it was going to be a girl!
Naturally…..I HOPPED ON IT and said, “Can I make you a card?” – I was so excited as I admit, I broke down and purchased this ADORABLE stamp set, Made with Love because of the sweey sample that was in the catalog (page 59). I knew that I wanted to CASE this card and thanks to Hannah’s friend having a baby…you get to see it for this 2 day post!
This stamp set goes with the Baby’s First Framelit Dies and I admit, I have not used them as much as I thought I would when it first came out to coordinate with the Something for Baby Stamp Set…. but now…new story with this stamp set! 🙂
When we have the opportunity to have a set of die cuts that will help us make the “cutting process” not only easier but faster ~ I say, YES ~ sign me up! Remember, it is that time thing that gets us every time!
This has been around for a while and the shapes are classics! I do not know about you…but when I see a “onesie”, I smile with great memories of the PEEPS being BABY PEEPS!
I used the Crumb Cake, taking the lead from the sample in the catalog and I adore it! It has a very natural and clean feel to the card but the real FUN was the heat embossing!
When you look at the above picture of the stamp set, you will see that there are many small images…I ADORE when a stamp set has little classic images!
You can see that I used to the max the dots (go figure, I adore dots) and also the super sweet flower! I simply took the Blushing Bride marker to color in the “onesie stripes” and also the centers of the flowers!
Trying to let the embossing and the stamped images be the shining star, I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap of paper ~ flagged the ends and PRESTO …a super cute card!
I ask you….when was the last time you used the heat tool and embossed? I admit, I forget about it as my heat tool is in a drawer and you know the saying, “Out of sight….Out of mind” but I will say I never, EVER get tired of Heat Embossing, it is a HANDS DOWN rewarding technique.
I hope to see you tomorrow…as I do have another version of this card~ I am excited to see how you like it and which one “suits your fancy” A new baby in the world deserves a fun and special card. I think that I have the baby cards that people sent to me when I had a baby (yikes, that was decades ago but I bet there is a box that has them), it is always a special time….and one that is always cherished as it is an amazing miracle!
Please do not forget that we are “IN THE TRENCHES” with the BONUS DAYS and with the heat we have been having, I say that it is much more fun and comfortable to stay inside, shop….stamp & be proud of yourself!
