We're half way there...welcome to day 3! Are you all ready? There is so much to see today both here and on the design teams blogs so let's not waste any time and get right to todays projects.
I have a few cards to share today using two of my new sets that will be released on the 15th...Sweet Baby and Bundle of Love! Let's start with Sweet Baby....
I love, love, love the dies that coordinate with the set! LOVE! If you visit my blog regularly then you know how much I love to add dimension to my cards. I'm a bit of a dimension freak and have quite a stash of foam adhesive in my craft area. These dies are a big time saver!
For todays first card I started by die cutting the 3 animals that are included in the Sweet Baby set. Were any of you thinking the third animal would be a lion?! If you notice in the die above the lion has two different images....one complete body and one head. This will give you the option of using the full body to stamp both the main body of the lion as well as his head. Or if you'd rather you could stamp his body and then stamp his head onto the separate head image. Doing it separately gives you the chance to add that dimension I was talking about! :)
All that talk of dimension and I didn't even add any to this first card. Using my 1.25" square punch I punched 4 different colored squares....Spring Moss, Summer Sunrise, Aqua Mist and Hawaiian Shores. I just attached my animals to the front of each square and trimmed off the over hang. I used the Polka Dot Basics ll impression plate on my Kraft cardstock. 'For the birthday boy' is from Make A Wish.
An example of how Sweet Baby can be used for more than just baby cards.
Here is another card using Sweet Baby. I die cut my giraffe with Terracotta Tile felt and then attached her over a doily. I cut 3 strips of cardstock....Lemon Tart, Terracotta Tile and Aqua Mist and stamped them using one of the floral images from Background Basics: Botanicals.
To finish her off I attached a tiny pearl, a Prima flower and some PTI twine.
And lastly for today I have another adorable card using Bundle of Love. This one was inspired by my sweet friend, Melissa Ladd. She mentioned yesterday about using the little baby in the set with a couple of other Papertrey Ink sets...Out On A Limb was one of them. I think they work perfectly together. What do you think?
Dark Chocolate, Summer Sunrise, Hibiscus and Sweet Blush were the colors I used. The baby cloth is another one that is included in the set.
'It's a girl' is also a part of Bundle of Love.
Nichole and the design team have lots to share today using both Sweet Baby and Bundle of Love. I was able to take a little peek at what a couple of the ladies created....believe me....you won't want to miss it!
Thanks so much for stopping by today and for your comments during the past few days! I appreciate you all so, so much!!
