SU Baby Card

SU Moon Baby Pop Out Z-Fold Card

April 18, 2018

I don’t even have to tell you how I made this if you watched Monday’s video!
I used the same measurements but showed you how to make it with an oval this time.

I love lined images now that I can easily use my Stampin’ Blends to seamlessly color images.
Isn’t that Ivory Stampin’ Blend just perfect for the skin tone on the baby?
Stampin’ Blends will soon be back for ordering:)

I don’t have a lot of baby stamp sets, and I am sure this one will be used a lot.
I especially love the baby sleeping on the cresecent moon with his little behind popping up:)

The stars are grouped together far enough apart that that it was easy
to stamp just one on the edge of my front panel to fill in blank spots.

I actually cut the stuffed animals to stamp them separately.
I can always put them back together side by side if I want because I did not trim
the edges so they fit together like a puzzle piece.

And, HERE is a card I made a time ago with a square pop out…

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

SU Foxy Friends with the Fox Builder Punch

August 6, 2016

I am playing along with the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #248 created by one of my favorite designers, Linda Callahan.

FMS Final 248-001

I put the fox in for the shape and the DSP for the rectangle:)

I was inspired by a cute card by Sandra Mott where she cut the DSP into a row of foxes. If you attempt cutting the A Little Foxy DSP into rows of foxes remember they are not all the same size foxes. I am happy to say no foxes were harmed when I had to cut the DSP into 56 rows for my wonderful gals at classes this week!

This little fox is so cute! And that is not the only little critter you can make! Take a look at these cuties on Pinterest…https://www.pinterest.com/pin/108297566019480098/

Oh, I used the Duet Banner Punch and the Badges and Banners stamp set for the sentiment on both cards.

SU Something for Baby

April 26, 2016

A friend needed a baby card so I made up a quick one…no one knows if it is a boy or girl so yellow was a good choice! I was not sure if the scallops were too girly so I gave her a choice of plain arm and leg openings:) I think the Expressions Natural Elements (Congrats) were a great embellishment in this year’s annual catalog. Don’t forget to pick some up if you missed them as they are retiring!

I used some paper from the Cherry of Top DSP Pack- doesn’t it look like water?

SU Something for Baby Yellow Onesie

This fun onesie was so easy to make!

You just fold a 4 1/4″ x 11″ portrait card in half and punch half of a 1 3/8″ circle on the fold to create a head opening. Here is a sample, however the photo is out of order!

You do the same for the leg holes but place the punch at each bottom corner like this:

To make the body, place a ruler horizontally across the card 1 1/4″ from the top fold (below the head hole) and draw a line lightly with a pencil in 1″ on both sides. From the middle points of each line, draw a line down to the top of each leg hole. Cut along the lines to make it  the shape of a onesie.

To make the trim on the collar and leg holes, punch out a 1 3/8″ circle then punch around the hole you created in the paper with a 1 3/4″  scallop or circle punch.

Place the trim around the head and leg openings and trim off the excess.

*****************************

Grab a cup of something….I am going to get long winded

…thanks in advance for the therapy time, friends!

Now, I have to say…I really did attempt the “sewing on card stock” technique. My little RN was off of work and sat in my stamping room with me enjoying a good book while I played around with this challenge (priceless day). So, I have a witness that I got out the sewing machine, watched a few tutorials, and then attempted to sew on my card stock! Oh my, I changed up tensions and blah, blah, blah but all that needle did was make ugly holes in my paper and ball up on the opposite side of the paper. Ugh…

I was attempting to sew a vellum pocket like the card on p. 149 of the Annual Catalog and put some little circles in it. Well, since I could not get the sewing to work out for me, I decided to make a pocket with vellum and some SU Lullaby DSP using the SU Banner Framelits layered inside each other. I then added a little banner with  DSP and vellum just adhered directly to the banner. I added some circles to the outside of the vellum, too. But I still did not have any stitching on my card!!! I tried my white gel pen that would not cooperate with me, either.  So out came the Needlepoint Embossing Folders to the rescue. How did I end up spending so much time on a card? Once I started I just would not get it out of my head…
