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.

January 23, 2015

Tara has asked us to create a baby card with sweet colors

at the Friday Mashup #194 this week.


 This week’s Mashup Challenge is:

Create a project with a “Baby Theme.

Create a project  with “Brown, Aqua & Tangerine.”

or Mash it Up! and create a “Baby project with the above colors.”

SU Something for Baby FM

 I knew I wanted to use the SU Something for Baby stamp set with its adorable matching framelits. The colors from last year’s retired RetroFresh DSP fit the challenge perfectly. I was looking around for a baby sentiment and came across this AWESOME one in the SU Big News stamp set. I had overlooked it- it is so cute!!! The large sentiment  fit so well with the layout I was playing around with on the card front. Since the Paper Players #228 is all about the sentiment so I am sharing it over there.


  I added a few Soft Suede candy dots, and I was happy:)

SU Something for Baby

Lisa LOVES animals so her challenge for us at the Friday MashUp # 175

this week has an animal theme.

She  is also shaking it up with a Shaker Card MashUp challenge.



 Create a Project using “Animals.”
Create a “Shaker card” project.
Mash it up! and create a “Shaker Card with an Animal.”

 I did have a fun time coming up with this card and mashing it up. It is so bright in person but I had  some trouble getting a good photo of it. Oh what fun it was pulling out the Coastal Cabana sequins from the container and three of those little buggers got caught on my sticky stuff and no way to get them loose! Hahaha!

 I was definitely in need of a baby stamp set so I got the new SU Something for Baby, and oh my- I can’t believe how cute it is with its coordinating framelits.

I thought the colors at Colour Q # 244 this week for perfect for a boy card so I created one with  Retrosketches # 117.
