Wild about You baby gift… part 3 of 5

My Husband’s co-worker’s wife had a baby girl. This was her baby gift…

I designed the box all by myself. I am soooooo proud of myself!!

Baby Onsies are stamped in craft ink and heat set with an iron.

for all you box loving gals— here are the dimensions:

base: 12×12 sheet of card stock or designer paper

score at 1.5, 3, 9 and 10.5

turn and score at 2 and 10

snip score lines and attach to sides to form box.

there will be 2 longer tabs/side of the box. score the longer tabs at 1/2″ and fold over the sides to give your box stability. (see left and right edges above)

tip: practice on cheap paper to make sure you have it right

box lid: 10-1/8′ x 10-1/8″, score at 1″ on all sides, snip score lines and adhere to form box.

Stamps: wild about you, cheep talk, Congrats (SAB)

Ink: various

Paper: regal rose, whisper white, Georgia Peach (retired)

Accessories, circle scissors plus, nestabilities, scallop edge punch

Its a Zoo out there!

This was option # 2 for those that like invites that open.  I loved both but went with yesterdays flat card after surveying about 20 people.  the verdict was split 50/50.  I liked the booger size of the other- it was a standard business envelope (#10 size)

All the supplies are the same as yesterday….

Its a Zoo themed Birthday

Yup another request for Party invites.  I made these for a girlfriend that is having her daughter’s Party at the local Zoo.  How cool is it that instead of gifts- she’s adopting an animal!  COOL!!!

I will share the alternate version tomorrow.  Today I am making party favors- Shoes!  wait till you see them they are soooo cool!!

Club card spoiler & Video Tutorial

My Stampers 10 club girls will be getting this card with their orders.  Since I am unable to stamp for them, they need to root through their stash of stamps to find a critter or a cute image that will create “the scene”.

For the 1st card I choose Pun Fun.  The little skunk is so cute in the grass.  The Video below shows how to create the clouds in the background and it covers the masking technique.  Since I can’t always teach all my club members in person I thought a video would be a perfect solutio!! Enjoy!

For the Little Baby Boy

Mary Polcin, the 1st woman from Stampin’ Up! to cross $1 million in career sales, presented at convention.  She showed us how she presents at a workshop, the process of taking a 6×6 page and building it into a 12×12 page.  A concept that is not new I know- I have been in the gallery for this over at Splitcoast!  I have never tried it until now.  What a challenge for me…but hey all scrapping is a challenge for me!

Why this?  I had a workshop yesterday and she requested baby items and a scrap page (The hostess’ sister had her baby boy 5 weeks early).  I just love the outcome!  and if you have never tried it you should.  This was hard for me!  but I loved the challenge and I am sure to do it again!

not to mention I dug out the sweetest pictures of my oldest son, who is now 10, of the 1st days he was born.  Nice memories for sure!

Lets start with the 6×6 (they made this component at the workshop)

and the 8×11 base

and now the two together

And here is the 12×12 base:

the 8.5×11 page and the 12×12 page together:

And now the full 12×12 page:

So what do you think???  My kids say my husband has harry potter glasses! LOL

ETA:  the bag topper is a 8×10 piece of card stock.  Score on the long side at 4 and 6 inches.

Use the slot punch and punch on the score lies where the handles go.  cut the score lines in between the slot punches along the score line so the handles can slip in.

Baby Bib Card Tutorial!

Here is my very 1st tutorial for the Baby Bib card using the Pick-a-Petal Brass Template.  

Supplies needed:  

Card Base: 8.5×5.5

Wide Grosgrain ribbon to match your color scheme

Pick a Petal Brass Template

Sticky Strip

Stamps and Ink

Various punches for Embellishing

button (optional)

Paper snips

A pencil and a ruler

Step 1:  Fold your card stock in half. With the fold at the top, make small pencil marks on each side of the card 1-3/8″ down from the fold.  Make a pencil mark on the bottom edge at 2-3/4″ (halfway)

Step 2:  Line a scallop from the brass template up with the center mark at the bottom of the card and another scallop on the brass template at the 1-3/8″mark on the side of the card.  Trace the scallops.  

Step 3:  Repeat on the 2nd Side

Step 4:  Add 2 more scallops, 1 at a time, by tracing the template and having the top of the scallop on the edge of the paper.  

Step 5:  Repeat on the other side. 

Step 6: Hand cut the scallops to create the basic bib shape.  Try to make your cuts clean and neat, but don’t worry if your cuts are not 100% perfect.  The sponging in a later step will hide any imperfections.

Step: 7  Using the circle coluzzle tool (3rd groove in),  cut the neck of the bib.  I made a small pencil mark on the card base at 2-3/4″ (half way) so it was easy to center.  You can see the very faint pencil mark in the picture.  

Step 8:  erase any left over pencils marks

Step 9: Stamp your bib.  I used the So Swirly wheel in Pretty in Pink for the girl bib and the stars from Background Basics in bashful blue for the boy version pictured at the end of this post.

Step 10:  Sponge the edges of the bib in a slightly darker ink.  I used regal rose and brocade blue.  This hides the cutting imperfections *wink*

Step 11:  Cut your ribbon about 13 inches long.  Attach the ends of the ribbon to the bib with a small piece of sticky strip.  

Step 12:  Embellish your baby Bib.  I added a ribbon tie on the right and a button on the left. I used the Giraffe from Wild About You for the front and stamped it in the darker in color.  the 1-3/8″ circle punch is in card stock to match the lighter color

Now its your Turn!  Make a bib card and post a link here for me to see!  I would love to see your creations.  If you don’t have the brass template, that’s OK just improvise.

The more I play with this Pick-a-petal Brass Template the more I like it!  Besides the bibs, I have used it for a Convention  swap card (to be posted soon), the clock from yesterdays post and I have a few other ideas in my head.  Lots of crafty uses for this! 

Sweet Baby Girl Bib Card

My co-workers wife had a baby girl at the end of June.   I have given baby thank you notes to everyone in the office who has had a baby.  Feeling a little guilty that I did not make any this time…and looking for some inspiration, over lunch I did a little blog surfing for baby cards and saw a bib card here by Debbie Olson and another one on the Papertrey blog here.

This is My SU version.  The ribbon tie is cased from Debbie’s card and the scallop edge is from the Papertrey card-modified of course!

HOW???  you ask??  super simple!  I used the Pick-a-petal brass template and a plain white card base.  I will post a tutorial this week, hopefully tomorrow. ( my very 1st one!)  

I will be using this as a convention swap- PRETTY PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS as a swap if you are going to convention.  Look for me I’ll swap with you!


Stamps:  Wild About you, So swirly Wheel

Paper: Whisper white, pretty in pink, barely banana

Accessories:   Pick a petal brass template, ribbon, punches, corner rounder, sticky tape and a random pink button found in my embellishment stash
