Babycakes - Baby, Baby Baby

It's a Boy!  My coworker just became a Grandma this week and I thought it was the prefect time to use the new Babycakes paper pack so I made another baby card. 
I love all the fun patterns with this paper and can't wait to explore more of my creative talent to use this paper pack. 
I used a newer stamp set, Wild Wonders, with a much older stamp set, Sweet Baby.  I stamped the head of each animal on a separate piece of cardstock, then cut the shape using the microtip scissors.  Using foam tape under the head to give a little something.  But the new Bronze shimmer tape really adds sparkle to this card! And, of course I can't forget about the heart I used out of the Babycakes Complements pack.

Laughing Lola & Stickles = A Winning Combination!

Tonight I found some play time (i.e. papercrafting time) but it was some good therapy to make something and put my mind at ease from all my worries and stress. 
So, what did I make? A birthday card!  Several of my closest friends are having their birthday this weekend and it is time to get to work.

I stamped the butterflies on white cardstock in a random pattern. The stamp set I used, Butterfly Wings.  Next, I added a little strip of Laughing Lola on the bottom and a birthday sentiment on top.......then, STICKLES!!!!

Washi Stamps

I love one of the new Hostess Rewards Stamp Set - Washi Wonder!  Pick your own colors to stamp any one of these fun little designs.  Great for cards or a little extra to your pages.  I'm thinking even trying them in a crush book!

Baby Baptism Card

A dear friend invited us to her son's baptism this week.  Truthfully, it wasn't easy coming up with a card layout other than I knew I wanted to use a cross.  With a little luck and lots of ideas on Pintrest, I came up with a game plan.

So I stamped and embossed a cross from an older stamp set with gold.  Then used the "congratulations" from a wedding stamp set.  This was the result.
