Baby Girl Cards


Hey peeps!  Happy Spring!  FINALLY!  Let’s hope it sticks!  My niece had a little girl earlier this week and the Sugar Creek Hollow challenge this week was this pretty inspiration photo:

I found a sweet little image from a Crafty Secret note pad and cut it down to fit the Mojo Monday sketch from this week:

and here we go:

I did put my sentiment element at the top instead of the bottom so I didn’t cover up that cute little puppy!  All the designer papers are digital; the card base is Pistachio Pudding and the embossed piece is Blushing Bride.  Sentiment is from Papertrey’s Daily Designs Sentiments


Then, I had the remaining piece sitting on my desk, looking up at me, as well as this little tag, bare and unadorned, so I decided to make another baby girl card for the receptionist at my dentist’s office!!  The Kraft Journal’s challenge this week is “tags”, so it was a perfect fit:

I mounted the Crafty Secrets piece on a scalloped square and embellished it with some lace, pleated ribbon and an embossed heart.  Then I stamped and embellished the tag with a few miscellaneous images and sentiments…..I was really just kind of playing around with some sets I rarely use!  The ribbon is the same pleated ribbon with the stitching removed and pressed.  I stamped the Blush Blossom card base with the retired Distressed Dots background stamp.  (If you need details on any of the stamps or colors I used, just send me an email….there were too many to list!!).  Enjoy your day!

Cassidy & Dana enjoyed a trip to the National Aquarium in Baltimore!

These are both darling, Leanne. :) I just recently received the Daily Designs sentiment PTI set for my birthday. Was happy to see it in use here!

Your daughter is so beautiful, and it's obvious that's where Cassidy gets her good looks. :)

Always enjoy your posts, my friend. Love getting them in my email inbox!

Such great cards! I love gingham on baby cards. The pink and yellow are so sweet. I love the pink and ruffled ribbon and lace of the second card. So girlie!
