Welcome to Kylie Bertucci’s Top Ten Winner’s Blog Hop. The theme for this month’s Blog Hop is “babies.” Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.
First of all, I want to thank everyone who voted for my April entry. I feel honored to be able to participate in this Blog Hop. You made it happen!
This was my April project, which featured the stuffed bunny from the Sweet Something Stamp Set. This set will soon be retiring, which means the last day to order it is May 31st, or while supplies last.
For May’s project, I had a brainstorm while I was out of town. I envisioned see-through baby blocks with the letters, A, B, C, on them. I was excited to return home, and put my idea into action. It turned out, pretty much, like I imagined.
The Letters for You Stamp Set provided the A (stamped in Mint Macaron ink,) the B (stamped in Blushing Bride ink,) and the C (stamped in Daffodil Delight ink.) The stamps give the letters a hand painted look, which is very artistic. Don’t you agree? I used the Large Letters Dies for cutting, and doubled the three letters for thickness.
To make the blocks, I used the Layering Squares Die Set. I fiddled around with the sizes to find the two that would give me the right fit for the letters. The outside needed to be scalloped, and there had to be enough width to hold the Mini-Dimensionals. After cutting my three frames, I put glue on the tips of the letters, and placed them on the blocks. I used a dozen Mini-Dimensionals on the back of each block for fastening to the card base.
The card base is Thick Whisper White, embossed with the Cable Knit Embossing Folder. Keeping it white lets the letters stand out, and the Cable Knit adds a nice, baby blanket texture. I tried other colors, but this was my favorite.
“Hello Baby…” is from the Baby Bear Stamp Set. I stamped it in Basic Black Ink, and used an Oval Layering Die for cutting. See how it matches the scalloped edge of the squares?
The completed sentiment is on the inside, “Welcome to the world.” I remember this being my favorite thing that was said in cards to my babies.
I stamped the three small flowers from the Sweet Little Something Stamp Set in the colors of the A, B, C, inks. I like how the Cable Knit Embossing Folder decorates the other side.
The envelope needed some color, so I added a piece of yellow striped Designer Series Paper. Now my card is ready for a boy or girl baby.
