Impression Obsession Birth Day card

I think that this is not what Mitra meant when she said 'Birthday' card.  I am, however, the Baby Card Queen (still making 40 per month) and for Birthing nurses, Birthday means Birth Day.  We have been known to lean over brand new babies, and sing Happy Birthday.  All of us.  In 4 part harmony.  Anyway, here is an Impression Obsession Birth Day card.

The die, is IO 235M, Greetings, Bottom Word Edgers. 
The papers are from my stash, and unknown manufacturers.  The background is SU Apricot Appeal.  Papertrey button and twine.  I can't remember where the diaper pins came from, but they started life as brads.  I cut the little metal pieces off and stuck them on with glue dots.
This card will go up to the hospital next week.

I hope the IO Team can laugh with me!

Waltzingmouse L'il Buddies Baby Card

I ordered from Waltzingmouse Stamps the other day, and got motivated to get out some of Claire's Stamps.  I pulled out L'il Buddies- what a ton of sentiments are is tht set.

How's this?

The bunny is set into a baby photo frame- I got a box of them for pennies- they make a great frame!  Hard to see, but I lined the bunny whiskers with a glitter pen.

Hey Claire, are you out there??

Impression Obsession Birthday Challenge

I have been loving my IO dies lately, and channeling Kittie Caracciolo for many of the cards I have done in the past couple of weeks. Impression Obsession has a Birthday challenge going on, and I decided to enter.  Thing is, I only have a few dies, and fewer stamps- ha!  Here's what I was limited to:

The frame die is 242-YY, and the stamp is F2178 Cupcakes.  Here's how it came out: 

All glittery, yay!  The cupcakes are colored with Spica and Zig pens.  The cake stand is painted with Twinkling H2O's white, and the edge of the stand I did with Perfect Pearls.  The red frame is a piece of Memory Box paper.

Just to show the glitter!  Looks really good next to the glitter paper frame.

Thanks for looking!

Papertrey Anniversary Day 5

Ok, Day 5 was yesterday; I'm just running a day late!

The challenge is to ink up a stamp that's never been inked.  I don't think I have any of those, but the Year of Flowers Rose is one of my cleanest!  It's a daunting task to color it.

Papertrey Anniversay Day 4

The challenge for day 4 is to make a 'bouquet' using different sets.

My challenge for day 4 is to make a card while sneezing, coughing, bowing my nose, etc etc etc.

Those are the Bloom Builders dies set in the Friendship jar.  The flower centers are from Simple Sunflowers and somewhere else.

Papertrey Anniversary: Day 2

Today's challenge is to channel Maile Belles.  Maile is back after taking a year off for a new baby- and speaking of babies, I thought it would be a great idea to channel her for baby cards!  TaDa!!

Seems to me Maile often favors the right side of her card with  images stacked one on another- and she also likes little round embellishments and butterflies.

Lol, I have no small butterflies...
Here's another.  Maile made a onsie, I made a card.

Papertrey Anniversary 2015: Day 1

Here we go, happy campers!  Papertrey's anniversary bash!

Today is a color and sketch challenge.

Had to do a baby card, of course!

I used the Book Print Impression plate on Fine Linen CS.  Wrapped a piece of Classic Kraft twill ribbon around the layer, then put it on the Kraft card using dimensionals.  Wonderful Words 'baby'  cut from Kraft.  'Bitty' and 'Blessing' from Bitty Baby Blessings were stamped on linen with Kraft ink,  the cut apart and layered.  The animals were cut from Aqua Mist, Sweet Blush, and Melon Berry patterned paper.
