Baby Thank You Cards- for me

I realized I hadn't shared the thank you cards that I made to send out myself.

I made these shortly after Allison was born. Found a few pockets of time to create them. Felt good to make something!

Used some card bases I got in a card pack from Michaels. Used some black ribbon in my stash and stampled with the tiny attacher. I stamped the pig and sentiment from a Stampin' Up! set with Stayzon black ink and colored it with watercolor pencil.  I punched the pigs out with a Creative Memories square punch and the bigger square from black card stock. Layered together and adhered. 

Thanks for looking!

Baby Thank You Cards

So I haven't been as active on my blog as I would like. This new baby thing can really put a wrench in crafting time!

I haven't done much but a few assignments for my One Little Word class (up to date!) and I made some cards.

A friend of mine, just had a baby girl. Instead of bringing her a meal for her family, since I am no cook, I made her some Thank You cards to use.

I found some pink card bases and added some striped, American Crafts ribbon from my stash. Found this label thank you stamp, from Stampin' Up! and matching punch and used brown Distress ink. Found another Stampin' Up! stamp of the baby in the crib, stamped it also in brown and cut it out. Colored it in with Distress Markers. Popped the baby and crib with foam dots.

I also made her this card to go with the gift.

Another shade of pink for the base of this one, but the same ribbon. Used an Ali Edwards baby stamp for the sentiment and the Technique Tuesday die to cut the label out.

I recently received a gift for baby Ally that I didn't have a card for. I whipped this one up using more ribbon from my stash, also American Crafts. Used a stamp, also a Ali Edwards stamp. Cut the sentiment out using a Sizzix/Tim Holtz label die (a new favorite) and adhered it on one side with the tiny attacher and added a staple to the other side to balance it out. Added some sequins from my stash to finish it off.

Hoping to get some layouts done. Digital or otherwise. Have an all day crop coming up. Hoping to have stuff to share from that!
