Alrighty - 24 hours late, but better late than never! I had to make this weeks Spoon full of Sugar no matter what - One I got some new papers that were just perfect for the "Baby" theme, and Two my husbands niece had a baby! MIL needed a card to send with her gift - so I had to make this card! I love how it came out -
This Stampavie Rachelle Anne Miller Image "Play Time" is one of my favorite baby images, it is just too cute and fun and is perfect for the subject of baby. I colored with my copics, and then cut out with my Spellbinders Nestibilities Petite Ovals, the mat is the same as the card base. Now do you love those big polka dots they are embossed and feel almost flocked it is from DCWV and is part of the Nana's Nursery set. I used my Martha Stewart Valentine Border punch and scrap white card stock to make the heart border, hearts are ok for baby cards too right? Of course cuz we love babies so much!
And because of the heart I thought it was ok to punch out the Papertrey Ink Sentiment "Heaven Sent" with my Fiskars Heart Squeeze Punch. For the flowers I used EK Success Retro Flowers. Now all of the flower and the inside paper.. oh yes, I did the inside toooooo! All of these are a new paper stack that I got from Michael's, called Chloe's Closet from Making Memories. And wow.. you should see all the really cool embellishments that they make to go with this paper! Ok, so I inked the edges of everything with a light brown, sewed parts with straight and zig-zag stitches. Flowers are attached with jewelry spacers and mini button brads.
I hope MIL likes it, and I apologize for being late with this one - I have some fabulous DT buddies at Spoon Full of Sugar - they were so nice about me freaking out about being late. So make sure to visit the Spoon site and see how they made some GORGEOUS baby cards!
today - well I am hoping to put everything back into my brand new Utility Room - and get lots of laundry done. That while keeping an eye on Libbie - taking her out a million times. She has had very few accidents in her crate... she is so cute, she doesn't like to "do wrong" in there and wants to go out side to do her business, how cute is that at just over 7 weeks! Now my next thing is her and the cat.... They really love playing, and running all over the house. Gato has been so great with her careful but wearing her out so she sleeps a while!
Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!
