Baby Cards Galore

For the past several months my main focus on card making has been babies. I have several friends who are due and have had two so far come early with their little ones. I have made each of them a set of cards and two more friends this week will be getting them as their baby shower gifts. I am looking forward to having them see their cards.

Hogs and Kisses

My husband bought my a Cricut for Valentine's Day and I am having fun trying to figure out all the bells and whistles that it comes with. The pig and sentiment come from the Just Because cartridge. I feel like I am at the tip of the ice berg with this cartridge and the ones that came with my Cricut. I used my usual Crumb Cake, Red Riding Hood SU! card stock, and the pattern paper is from the paper kit Alphabet Soup by My Mind's Eye.

Southwestern Thank You

One of my stamping sisters sent me a really cute card kit and stamps from We R Memories and I had the perfect opprotunity to use some of it as a thank you card. My mom is in town from Alburquerque visiting us during my spring break and one of her good friends sent my son some gifts with her and this is the card I ended up making for her. I used my usual Crumb Cake for the card, and Stampin' Up! Red Riding Hood and Old Olive inks, the same for the card stock plus their Pacific Point card stock too. The stamp I used is from Inkadinkado. This is one of my first attempts to cut free hand...I think the pepper and lime turned out pretty good for my first time...

Chirp Up!

I've been meaning to try out some of my new things and finally got to them! My new embellishment seems to be stickers these days and I found these stickers by American Crafts at A.C. Moore. The stamp that I used is from Craft Smart...found it in the dollar bin at Michael's...love looking in their dollar bin...some of my favorite stamps have been found searching through there...the paper I used is from Cosmo Cricket...Garden Variety and the colors are Stampin' Up! Baja Breeze, Ruby Red, and Old Olive (one of my favorite colors)...as usual I used their Crumb Cake for the card and random cream colored cardstock that I plucked out of one of my bins full of random colors...I really had fun using this stamp, the stickers, and paper...I really like how this card came out...

Baby Steps

For the past several months I have been making baby cards and it has been a lot of fun. I am going to a good friend's shower tomorrow and this is the card that I made for her. I recently discovered alphabet stickers and bought some today and thought how could I use them with her card. So here is what I ended up creating. I stuck with my traditional Stampin' Up! Crumb Cake, used my Stampin' Up! stamp Baby Steps, and their Chocolate Chip ink, and Recollections Alpha Adhesive Stacks, and some ribbon. I really liked how it turned out and hopefully she will like it too!
