Every Little Bit Baby Cards

My dear friend is due to give birth to a baby boy any day now. I am so excited for her, as she already has an adorable little girl, and her family will be complete with the arrival of her baby boy. I made her a set of thank you cards that will come in handy for the gifts she will be receiving.

She loves teddy bears, so I knew this super-cute bear from the Every Little Bit set would be perfect for these cards. Actually, I have to admit, this bear image convinced me that I had to have this set. Look at him in this close-up; how could I resist?!?

Every Little Bit has 28 image stamps in total, and they are all just as cute and versatile as this little bear. They fit perfectly in the Stampin' Up! punches; I punched the bear out with a 1'' circle punch and popped him up on a Scallop Square. It was a cinch to watercolour him quickly with ink and a blender pen. I kept the layout very simple, and made five Chocolate Chip cards and five Crumb Cake cards. I also made a simple box to put the cards and envelopes in and wrapped the whole thing up in a cello bag. I hope she likes them!

Stamps: Every Little Bit, Short and Sweet, Family Phrases
Ink: Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip, Early Espresso, Pretty in Pink
Paper: Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip, Bashful Blue, Whisper White
Accessories: Blender Pen, Scallop Square Punch, 1'' Circle Punch, Piercing tool, Mat Pack, Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon

Artistic Etchings Gift Card Holder

I was looking for an idea for a gift card holder recently and came across this idea on LeeAnn Greff's blog. I love how it uses a standard sized card (4 1/4 x 5 1/2); you just need to score and fold the front of the card in half lengthwise and use the Word Window punch to create the slot.

I heat embossed and cut out the gold crown, and used my Colour Spritzer tool on the Very Vanilla layer.

Thanks for stopping by!

Ink: Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Versamark
Paper: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler
