Papertrey Ink and Paper Smooches New Baby card






 Hello everyone,

It is some time since I welcomed some new friends to the blog, so today I'd belatedly like to say hello to Susan of Cat'sInkCorporated blog. Susan, who lives in Australia, is a designer for a couple of Christmas Challenges and if you are looking for festive ideas at this time of year you are sure to find something on her wonderful blog. Another Susan who has joined us has a blog called The Cardmaker's Garret. Susan is a fellow team member from Happy Little Stampers and her designs have a timeless elegance about them that wows me. Susan lives in a beautiful area of Canada and is interested in gardening  and other crafts as well as riding. Last up is Kevin of McCrafty's Cards. Kevin is a multi-talented crafter who is on several Design Teams. His colouring skills are amazing and you will want to have a look at his wonderful salt dough creations.


My card for today is a new baby card




I started with a white base card and stamped a background of pink hearts (from Papertrey Ink) on it. I then used dies from My Favorite Things to layer on top of it. The cute giraffe is from PTI Sweet Baby and I die cut and stamped it in pink before adding a little green heart and a bow. The Welcome die cut is from Paper Smooches, and I cut the name Olivia from an old Ellison Designs Mac'n Cheese alphabet die set. Wow - that one takes me back to when I had my original red Sizzix die cutting machine and I had to get a special adapter piece so I could use the new fangled sizzlit dies!!!



I love it when I can delve into my stash and bring out stuff I haven't used for ages - it makes me feel better about hanging onto so much lol!

I'd like to play along with


Cutie Pie Challenge - pretty in pink

Use Your Stuff Challenge - use die cuts or punches


Thanks for stopping by


Hugs

  6. So adorable! I feel so satisfied when I use the stuff I have time over time. We should start a new challenge about using stuff that's older than two years. Okay, I'm not going to organize that one.
