Welcome to April Highlights. This month’s theme is “babies.”
I love pastel colors and stuffed animals, so my idea developed quickly.
This adorable bunny from the Sweet Little Something Stamp Set looks like she was photographed, doesn’t she?
This was done with a 3-step stamping process. That just means you have three stamps that you ink in three colors, and stamp one on top of the other. I started with the most detailed bunny stamp in the darkest color, Chocolate Chip. Next, the medium detailed stamp in Crumb Cake, and last, the stamp without detail, in Sahara Sand. Magically, a fuzzy bunny appears!
I cut her out by hand, which is called fussy cutting, and she was ready for her stage.
Every baby needs soft, pretty quilts, so I thought of the Quilt Top Textured Embossing Folder, and embossed a piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock. Prior to embossing, I cut a peek-a-boo hole with a Layering Circle Die. I really like how half of these circle dies have scalloped edges.
For the background, I found a pretty, Powder Pink piece of Fresh Florals Paper to layer on the Thick Whisper White card base. Then, I raised the white, embossed quilt on top, using Adhesive Strips.
The precious, little flowers are from the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set, and cut with the Bouquet Bunch Die Set. I stamped 3 flowers in Daffodil Delight, 4 flowers in Blushing Bride, and 14 leaves in Pear Pizzazz. After die cutting and gluing, I embellished the flowers with tiny, little pearls, because Bunny made a special request. She also said she wanted to say, “hello,” and the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set had the perfect, little tag.
I decorated the envelope with another Powder Pink print from Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper. And, I photographed it on another, so you are seeing three of the four.
I wanted to complete the inside, so this baby card would be ready to welcome a baby girl into the world. The Sweet Little Something Stamp Set has the perfect pun for a sentiment, “Sweet little somebunny.” The little bow is from the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set, and cut with it’s die from the Bouquet Bunch Die Set.
In case you didn’t know, this bunny likes boys too, and here’s a card to prove it. He fit within this Layering Circle Die, so no fussy cutting needed, and I made his blanket with the Cable Knit Embossing Folder.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my projects.
I’m so happy you paid me a visit. Thank you!
