I have been having a play with the All for Baby Bundle that arrived this week. I was in need of several new baby cards so this seemed like the ideal opportunity to get them all out of their packets and get creating. The bundle consists of the Stamp Set and Dies, but you can buy either product individually. The big advantage of a bundle is that you instantly save 10 % on the combined cost. The dies are also great as they fit through both the mini and full sized Stampin Cut & Emboss Machines, giving total flexibility.
I absolutely adore this card, it is so simple to create by die cutting out the clothes and pegs in whatever scraps of paper you have and then just “pegging” them onto the washing line. you can make the clothing whatever colours you wish, I know my friend is having a little girl so couldn’t help adding a couple of cute pink outfits. You could choose to stamp the pegs if you prefer, they were a little fiddly to die cut and glue on, but I do like the effect.
The base card is Polished Pink, one of the fabulous new In Colours available this month. The clothes line is created using Basic White card stock.
I CASED this card from the new catalogue. Have a look on page 59 and you will see where I found my inspiration from. The catalogue is a greta place to look for ideas on how to use products that you have purchased, as is the Stampin’ Up! website itself.
Another way to use the cute vest Die!
I made a second card using the die cut vests, this time in white to keep the card gender neutral. The base is in the new Soft Succulent “In Colour”. I wanted to use something completely different. The second layer is cut from the same card and embossed using the new HELLO embossing folder. I thought it was acute idea to tie in the sentiment on the card to the embossed base that says Hello in many different languages. Great for friends around the world who have growing families!
This card is also CASED ( a Stampin’ Up! term for an ideology we all live by….. Copy And Share Everything) from the catalogue. Again on page 59 but adapted to a gender neutral card rather than a pink one this time. I do love the sentiments in the stamp set and also the font used. It looks really lovely on both cards.
I used this sentiment inside my “washing line” card, stamped onto Basic White. The Stitched with Whimsy Die was used to decorate it and I next cut it to the correct size just using my trimmer. It looks lovely and bold against the Polished Pink card stock.
I hope I have inspired you to make some simple Baby cards using these products. it is so useful to have a stash of these cards ready for a happy announcement that may arrive anytime ~ best to be prepared!
