baby onesie card

My niece and her husband are expecting their first child right around Christmas.  I won’t be able to make it for the baby shower (I live too far away) so I decided to send her a gift card – enclosed in a cute card shaped like a onsie!

The card is from the silhouette design store and you can make it any size you want – mine ended up being about 6 inches tall.  The truck on the front and the edging on the arms, legs and collar were all cut from the same patterned paper.

When I first cut the onesie shape in blue cardstock it looked a bit flat so I embossed it with a cuttlebug folder called Oxford.  It’s my latest favorite embossing folder!  In fact I liked it so much that I ended up buying a second one because I forgot I had already purchased it!  And now I am trying to sell the extra one on one of those de-stash facebook sites.  Take a closer look at the embossing.

Once the card was put together I did not have a regular envelope to fit it, so I just grabbed a sheet of scrapbook paper from a baby themed pad and made my own.  I made a tag using a file from the silhouette design store (baby boy) and adhered that onto a scalloped circle cut with a spellbinders die.   Here is what the final package looks like. Thanks for stopping by today!

sentiment stamps

Today’s card uses a sentiment stamp as the focal point.

 

I made the front cover using patterned paper from the K & Company Tim Coffey Travel line.    This pack has some great travel, beachy, map type paper and living in Florida I know I will make great use of it!

Once I made the front I cut a circle off center using nestabilities dies and stamped the sentiment – from Impression Obsession.   A few small shells were glued onto the lower right corner.

Mark’s Finest Papers May Release – day 3!

Welcome to Mark’s Finest Papers a Heinrich Company’s                         May Blog Hop!

This month’s New Stamp Set Releases are
Oopsy Daisy Featured May 15Get Reel Featured May 16Scenic Selections Featured May 17

Flamingos on Vacation Featured May 18

Today’s set – Scenic Selections – was so much fun to work with!  It contains trees, leaves, fences, and other images to help you create mini works of art!
I used one of the tree images and a sentiment from the Oopsy Daisy set.   The tree was stamped with Memento Cocoa ink and then I used some water based markers in red, orange and yellow to create the fall colors.  All I did was dab the brush end of the marker to make little dots – it worked perfectly!   I sponged green and blue ink to get the ground and sky.  A spellbinders die was used to make the postal stamp cutout and an EK Success border punch for the mat.   Seam binding was used for ribbon.  All cardstock is from Marks Finest Papers.
So – what happens when you schedule a post just before you go on vacation?  Something goes wrong of course!!   Last week I had a scheduled post doing a sneek peak for this set and when I got back from vacation I noticed the photo did not show up.   Soooo….here is the belated sneek peek:

one sheet bag

Here is one of the projects I made for the Passionately Artistic blog, just in case you missed it. It’s a small box/bag made with one sheet of 8.5″ x 11″ cardstock:

First, here is how I created the front panel. It is best to to assemble your decorated front completely and then place it on the front of the box. Stamp and cut out the poinsettia image on red cardstock – no coloring needed! I attached small blue self stick pearls to the center of the image. Die cut two leaf images from green cardstock. This die is from the Spellbinders foliage set. Take of piece of red cardstock and place of piece of patterned fabric on top. The fabric I used is from Mota and has blues, greens and red throughout it.

Assemble all the pieces to the front of the fabric covered panel. I also added some bakers twine and a stamped sentiment.

To make the actual box, refer to the SCS resources section for “one sheet box.  There is a very good tutorial there that will show you how to make the box.

Thanks for stopping by today!!!
