Baby Card Ideas

Baby Bear with Balloons Z-Fold Card

 

I am guessing you recognize this Stampin' Up! Baby Bear card from my Z Fold Video tutorial blog post last week.  I love the fun bright, cheery colors and bold polkadot patterns in this fun greeting card!  I handstamped Baby Bear and his bow, and punched out the balloons from the Balloon Bouquet punch!

The great, fun, bold polkadot patterned paper is from the big Designer Series Paper Stacks on page 174 in the current Stampin' Up! catalog.  I used both the Regals Collection and the 2015-2017 In Color Collection.  The cardstock base is Crushed Curry, and the accent mat layer is Watermelon Wonder. 

 

Find Baby Bear on page 61 in the new 2016 Stampin' Up! Catalog or here in my online store

The Balloon Bouquet punch was new in the last Occasions catalog, and is also in this catalog, on page 187 or here online.

Baby Bear is a 3-step stamping set.  There are 3 layers that make up the image.  I stamped the darkest image in Early Espresso and both of the other lighter images with Crumb Cake ink, stamping the lightest one off on scratch paper first.

The bow is stamped in Watermelon Wonder ink, as well as the sweet greeting.  You'll find this sweet greeting in the Love & Affection stamp set, pg 45, #141545.

The adorable buttons and heart are enamel Shapes from the Brights collection package #141680.

Baby Card for the Twins!

 

You might remember me sharing a Project Life album I made for Stephanie, our friend having twin girls (see that post here).  We wanted to give them some cute clothing for the babies, too, so when we gave Stephanie and her husband the additional gift, I gave them this card for their twin baby girls!

 

Bear Hugs Baby Card idea for Twins!  Stampin' UP! In Colors, stamps and die cuts used to create this handmade baby card by Patty Bennett

 

Does this ever happen to you ... you see a card and decide to copy it.. but then when you finish, it's just about nothing like the original idea??  Well... I started out thinking I'd use the Zoo Babies card idea below, and then I totally changed it up and used the baby bears from the Bear Hugs set!!

 

Stampin' Up! Baby Card ideas featuring Zoo Babies and Bear Hugs stamps, punches, paper and dies

 I loved the cute little wagons with the baby bear die cuts, and added Basic Gray Candy Dots to the 1/2" black circles to look like wheels.  I also used my Project Life journaling marker to draw on the wagons and draw the little strings to make the wagons look like they were tied together.

 The bears and matching framelit dies are available at a 15% Discount! But only until May 31!  Click on the product bundle photos at the bottom of this post to purchase them in my online store.

The background is Flirty Flamingo Cardstock (new on June 1st!) embossed with the Elegant Dots embossing folder.  The wagons are punched out using the Decorative Label punch in Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach cardstock (both to be released in the new In Color Collection on 6/1/16). 

I added a strip of flowered designer paper from the new Affectionately Yours pack and also some Flirty Flamingo ruched ribbon.  Customers can purchase all these new items on June 1 in the new catalog.  Do you need a catalog? Let me know.

I was going to put the little stamped/die cut bows "in their hair" but it didn't look right to me.. so I put them on the wagons and I think it's totally cute!

 

The Twins are here!  Stephanie had the twins about 6 weeks early.. just under 5 pounds each and everyone is doing fine!  I am so excited to meet Jennifer and Jessica soon!

Project Life by Stampin' Up! International Blog Hop

PL international blog hop

 

I was really excited to be asked to be a participant on this Project Life International Blog Hop this month with my amazing Stampin' Up! demonstrator friends from all over the world!  We each have a passion for our Stampin' UP! business and Stampin' Up! products and a love for the Project Life line of products!  You are visiting me here in the San Francisco Bay Area, California, USA, and you will travel the world as you click on all the links at the bottom of this post!

 

Do you need a GREAT Gift Idea for a New Mom!? 

I have your answer!

 

Our friends Stephanie and Gabe are having TWIN baby girls very soon and I knew I wanted to make up a 6x8 Project Life album for them and have it all ready so that she can just slip in photos of their little babies when they arrive!

Today I am sharing this great gift idea with you! I hope you will think of someone who might be blessed by a gift like this! Watch my video below for more details, and I hope you enjoy this idea!

I did a little stamping on the 6x8 album cover with the Zoo Babies stamp set and regular Classic Ink Pads.

As mentioned in the video above, this Hello Baby Girl Project Life card collection pack comes with 100 cards, and 12 of them have the months on them, as you'll see in these photos.  It makes such a great quick album to record memories and photos for the baby's first year!

I did offer to make her 2 identical books, in case she wanted a book for each baby, but she said one book for photos of the 2 of them would be great.  We talked about how fun it is to take photos of your little one in the same chair, or with the same toy each month to see their growth, like I did with our son Jason, 25 years ago:

The pages are all ready for Stephanie to slip in photos of her new twin baby girls, and journal a few thoughts as she goes, using the Project Life Journaling Pens I gave her, too!

Creative Challenge Club Sketch CCC02 - Tag Talk Baby card

 

It's time for another Creative Challenge Club sketch!! I'm excited to be a part of the Creative Challenge Club design team!!   You can see more info on our website about the Creative Challenge Club here.

This is our sketch this week, and our projects all use this design layout for inspiration - Sketch CCC02.

CCC02-001

Here is my card based on the inspiration from the sketch above!

Tag-talk-baby-card-star-mask-stampin-up

I love the Decorative Stampin' Up! Star mask (stencil) and wanted to use that... somehow the card just morphed into a baby card!  :)  Using Calypso Coral and Pool Party means that this card could be for a boy or a girl, right?

Tag-talk-baby-card-decorative-star-mask

Just ink up your Stampin' Sponge and sponge color on top of one of the 4 masks! I used the star mask on this card (pg 205, #133777)

I used the oval framelits and my Big Shot to die cut an oval from the Maritime Designer Paper (hey, buy 3 packs of designer paper and get 1 free in July!), and on top of that oval I layered a tag from the Tag a Bag tag kit! The Welcome Baby circle is stamped using Calypso Coral ink and the Tag Talk stamp set (pg 66, #134249 / 134252). 

Tag-talk-baby-card-petite-petals-stampin-up

ABOVE: The sweet little flower is punched out of Calypso Coral polkadot paper from the Subtles DSP stack (pg 185, #130135) with a 1/2" circle punched from a Pool Party scrap and a heart punched from the new Hearts Border punch (pg 222, #133784).

Tag-talk-baby-card-candy-dots-stampin-up

ABOVE: I drew stitching lines with a  Pool Party marker, added Pool Party candy dots and Calypso Coral Seam Binding ribbon and Pool Party 1/4" cotton ribbon.

 Use our CCC02 sketch above and create a card to upload to our site!

I hope you will join us if this is your first or 10,000th time stamping a card from a sketch!  Remember.. prizes will be given away if we have at least 10 people participating each week!

Stampin Up Owl Punch Baby Girl Dresses Cards

 

Our nephew and his wife recently had another baby girl and I happened to see this idea on Pinterest right after we received the baby announcement, so I just KNEW this was the perfect card to make for them!!  How CUTE is this!?

Owl-punch-baby-girl-dress-card

You won't believe how EASY these little dresses are to make... they are just the "vest" part of the Owl Builder punch from Stampin' Up!  (order it here #118074).

Owl-punch-baby-girl-dresses-stampin-up-patty

What makes these so STINKIN' CUTE is the ruffle... place sticky strip (#104294) on the flat portion of the Ruffled Ribbon (#130021) and then put it in a curve around the bottom of the "dress" then trim off any excess on the ends!

Owl-punch-baby-girl-dresses-ruffled-ribbon-how-to

Owl-punch-baby-girl-dresses-stampin-up

I used some Calypso Coral Bakers Twine (#125573) for a "clothesline" and placed the dresses on the line with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Owl-punch-baby-girl-dress-cards-stampin-up

The little hearts are part of the Owl Punch.. so I added them to the cards.. so sweet!

I hope they enjoy the card.. they'll be getting it in the mail today or tomorrow :) 

 OH, and P.S. .. this is a SUPER way to use up DSP scraps!!!
