Sweet Little Something for Easter

Here’s an Easter card featuring Sweet Little Something! This would also make a cute baby card! The layering of my bear is as follows:

1. Crumb Cake

2. Soft Suede

3. Early Espresso

Notice the fold on this card. The Crumb Cake cardstock is the base, and the folded card is actually ON TOP of the card base. This is a fun fold, just for something different!

Baby Shower Card

12829317_10153833844965733_8815100991931275598_oIMG_3011Here’s a card I made when my grandaughter was born! So fast and easy! I have used this sketch before – it’s so versatile!

Pregnancy Goodies!

IMG_0334 copy

Here’s a project I made for my sweet daughter in law, who is 3 months pregnant! It was so much fun to make! (Today is her birthday as well!)

I made one of these pregnancy cards years ago. You can read my post HERE plus find the link to Ellen Kemper’s card, which I CASED.

The oven was made using a pattern created by Julie Campbell. You can find the pattern on her blog HERE.

The “bun” was made by rolling up two baby socks. I added a little ruffled ribbon to make it look like frosting in there.

I stuffed some gift cards inside the oven for her birthday so she can shop for maternity or baby things, along with some “pampering items” for being pregnant.

By the way, here’s a photo of the soon to be parents! We are SO EXCITED to have our first grandchild!!!!

Baby Giraffe Card

This is a card I made for one of my downline who had a baby in August! I got a similar card at convention from Michelle Siebenthall. She used totally different colors.

Here’s a list of the punches I used to make the giraffe:Largest Oval Punch for mouth
1 ¾” Circle Punch for head
Heart Punch for the white behind the googlie eyes (cut heart in half and position as shown)
½” Circle Punch for the nostrils
Word Window punch for the teeth and bumps on head
Scallop Edge Punch for the mane

weSTAMP Surprise Baby Shower!

Our weSTAMP met this month, and threw a SURPRISE BABY SHOWER for Melissa Sunde! Melissa is expecting her FIRST baby next month. You can probably tell by the colors, it’s a GIRL!

Here is a darling picture of Mama to be! It was also her BIRTHDAY that evening!

Maggie made the table party favors. She made up her own pattern for this! She filled the buggy boxes with PINK candy. CUTE CUTE!

Pam was in charge of decorating. Notice the DARLING clothespins holding the baby girl clothes on the line!

Pam made a BUNCH of these flowers and butterfly dangling decorations (on the back curtain). We had them everywhere in the room! They were BEAUTIFUL!We had quite an assortment of FOOD!! Thanks to Terri, Glenda, Norene, and Kathy for providing FUN FOOD for us! Nancy donated the BEATIFUL roses in the background!

Incase you haven’t noticed, not only is Terri creative at stamping, but she is ALSO creative in the KITCHEN! Her food creations are works of art! Take a look at the butterflies on these cupcakes. They are frosting SHEETS and you can actually take a craft punch and punch out shapes from them! They were SO TASTY, too! GREAT JOB TERRI GUYMON!

Here are some of the weSTAMPERS, concentrating while playing a game.

Michelle was the gal behind this cute little basket, filled with handmade thank you cards that she and many of the weSTAMPERS made. This will help Melissa when the gifts come in and she will have a stash of cards to pull from! Great idea Michelle!

Linda B HANDMADE this baby afghan! We were trying to decide if it was knitted or crocheted. (Linda wasn’t able to make it that night). What a special gift, I KNOW those take a long time to make!

Terri made a scrapbook for Melissa, out of chipboard! The shoes are made of punches, and the paper is VELVET! The word BABY is BLINGED UP to the hilt with GLITTER! CUTE!

This is a shadow box that I made for Melissa. Maggie also got her a shadow box just like this, same size and all! In that box, Melissa can add her baby’s handprints, photos, or anything to it! Besides the many gifts Melissa got, MANY MANY weSTAMPERS donated $ and we got her a gift certificate to Babies R Us!

We ended the evening with our swap. Our theme was to use this photo from Pottery Barn to inspire us!

Winter Baby Boy Gift

I have boxes and drawers FULL of little projects that I have made over the years….sometimes I wonder what I will ever do with all of them! I dug this one out that I made about 1 1/2 years ago. You can see the original post HERE, plus the link to the carriage pattern.

I am going to a baby shower today, and put this gift ensemble together. I found these cute little Department 56 baby ornaments at Target. I included a gift card to Target so the mama can choose whatever she needs. I hope she likes this!

Nautical Baby Card with Video Tutorial!

Here is the nautical card that I posted yesterday, along with the video tutorial. I just got a new camera, and I think the quality of the taping improved (but the quality of the presenter didn’t improve! LOL)

Hope you enjoy it! I tried posting the video already this morning and the video was cut off a bit on one side. In case you can’t see the full screen on this post, please click HERE and you will see the full view of it. Sorry about that, I am still trying to learn how to do this video stuff! (Is there anyone out there who knows why it cuts it off on my blog, but not on the YouTube site????)
