Foil Frenzy Meets Baby Bear?

Foil Frenzy for new baby card? Well, Foil Frenzy for a baby card seems a bit out of the box, but I think it works. The daughter of my high school friend, Margaret, had a baby girl and since I’m a bit behind with the greetings I wanted to make it special! What’s more special than some glitz? What do you think?

Design Notes for Foil Frenzy Baby Card:

I really had fun making this card. (scroll to the bottom of this post to see my desk when this card was finished.)

And how about those layers? Some might think it’s too many but I couldn’t seem to stop myself. When I was planning the card, it was going to have a simple soft pink background. So much for that idea.

When I finished with the layers, I added the Crinkled Seam Binding bow but it still needed something. I stamped the ‘hello, baby..” sentiment twice, each time covering part of the sentiment with clear tape. That was I could stack the greeting rather than having it in a straight line. Then, since I had stacked the sentiment, I was able to cut it out with one oft he Sweet & Sassy Framelits.

Finally, since I had made the card 5″ x 5″, I needed an envelope. I love using the Envelope Punch Board. The striped Foil Frenzy paper worked!

New Baby? Baby Bear is Here!

Could there be anything cuter than a new baby? I think not. So when a good friend of mine welcomed a new granddaughter, I looked for the cutest stamp set I had. There was some competition! But, I settled on Baby Bear. Baby Bear stamp set, new baby card, Oh My Stars embossing folder, Stampin' Up!, diannescards.com

Didn’t I tell you! The bear is just too cute.

This month I am again participating in Kylie Bertucci’s Blog Highlights. The theme for this month is “Change in Life Circumstances” So, since I needed a new baby card, I went with that!

Design Notes for Baby Bear Card:

This card was really fun to make. The bear is a three step stamping image. I stamped first with Sahara Sand ink, then Crumb Cake ink then finally, Chocolate Chip ink. The stamps are numbered to make it easy. Start with the lightest color and move to darker. Easy peasey. There is a little peek of some Powder Pink Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack behind the embossed Fresh Fig piece. The Powder Pink bow just screamed little girl and the Glitter Enamel Dot just added a touch of glimmer and glitz.

Vertical Greetings for Baby Card

Does that seems odd? I really like the Vertical Greetings stamp set. I’ve used it lots for birthdays and for Thank You cards. The “Congrats ” sentiment was just sitting there looking all lonely. So – Vertical Greetings for Baby!

Vertical Greetings for Baby, baby card, Happy Birthday Gorgeous

I needed to make a variety of cards to fill some boxes I will sell at our Craft Fair (in December!) and wanted to add a baby card. So, green and yellow will cover any eventuality! Can you guess where the Designer Paper came from? It’s part of the Delightful Daisy Designer Series pack.

Design Notes for Vertical Greetings For Baby Card:

I wouldn’t say this card is terribly complicated. Tedious might be a word that comes to mind. Each of those little hearts and the teeny tiny hearts were put on with Liquid Glue. But, I thought the effect was worth it. The balloons were stamped with greetings from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set. I also used the “Horray” balloon on the inside and on the envelope.

By the way, the small hearts came from a die in the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits set. The teeny tiny hearts are from the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.

Blog Hop – Layering Love Baby Card!

Design Notes for Layering Love Baby Card:

I love this sentiment. What’s a better little thing than a baby? I love the Berry Burst and Pink Powder combination. I cut out each of the two step stamping flowers. Most are placed under the Naturally Eclectic Card Overlay and  one off to one corner of the heart. The card is really pretty simple but, I think lovely! A nice way to welcome a new baby.

Here’s a peek at the inside. Notice, I added one of the little flowers on the inside. I’ll add a flower to the envelope before I send it off.
