cute little onsie --

you may have been following along with the things i made for a baby shower.  if not -- scroll back a few posts and you can check them out!

here is the last post for the shower -- this is so cute!  this is the card i made for mommy.


ADORABLE! right?  i found the template for the onsie on pintrest -- i'm addicted to pintrest btw ;) (i'll add the link to the template below)

i folded white cardstock in half, so it opens up - fold at the top.  i then covered it in a cute designer paper.  teh white ruffles are made using the small scallop punch from SU, and a circle punch.

a cute little ribbon sets it off!

here is where you can find the template ONSIE TEMPLATE

butterfly favors

welcome back --

:)

here are the favors for the baby shower that i mentioned in a previous post -- we had a butterfly theme to celebrate this new little girl on the way!


 like the invitations -- these are all a little different. i started off by covering a clothes pin with fabric - again, using pink, green, yellow and purple.  to do this - cut the fabric to fit the clothespin.  apply a thin layer of modge podge to the clothes pin and place the fabric strip on top.  allow it to dry.  then apply a thin coat over the top and again, let dry.

i then added a little 'bling' with a few stick on rhinestones.  i also added some magnet strips to the back - allowing the guest to have something "usable".


i used a lilac cardstock, run through the cuttlebug in the swiss dot embossing folder for the bottom label - cut with the stampin' up label punch..  the smaller one - also punched with the the SU punch, was stamped with a pair of baby booties (sorry, they didn't show up great in the pics) in blushing bride pink SU ink.  'thank you for coming' was done on the computer.  i also used the pink inlk to sponge around the edges.  i used a piece of pink or yellow ribbon to attach it.

i used 10 hershey kisses inside pink favor bags -- the bags were folded down, and gsthered in the middle -- and stuck inside the clothes pin.

so cute!  and i like that they have something t use after the candy is gone.  the fabric coverd pin can be used to post notes on the fridge, or as a bag clip.

hope you enjoyed today's project.  i have one more post coming up from the shower -- the card i made for her!  so, stop by again to check it out!

thanks for stopping by! happy stamping!

it's a girl!

i haven't been posting to much lately -- i've been busy!  my dearest, and best friend is having a baby!  it's a girl!  so excited for her and her husband, and the new big brother.

so -- that means --- a shower!  woohoo! ;)

today i'll be posting the invitations -- be watching for more posts soon - favors, and the card i made.

anyway -- let's get started!

these are soooo cute!


 each one is a little different.  the base of each card is either a cute pastel - pink, yellow, lilac, or green.  each tag is also one of those 4 colors, and each is tied with a yellow or pink ribbon.



i used the stampin' up stocking die to cut out the bootie (cardstock was folded in half, and cut out with the fold at the top, so that the card opens). the booties where then run through the cuttlebug (front only) in the swiss dot embossing folder.  i then punched slots in the cuff - using a SU punch, (sorry, i don't remember the name if it, but it looks something like this:  |  |  ), and then ran the ribbon though and up to tie a bow.  i placed the cuff even with the top of the stocking to make it look more like a little bootie or sock instead of a stocking. 


the tag was cut out on the cricut - a walk in my garden cartridge.  i used the bread tag function.  we had a butterfly themed shower, so this added the butterfly touch nicely!  i didn't have a stamp that i liked, or fit that said baby shower, so i printed these out on the computer.  i then sponged the edges with a little blushing bride pink SU ink so it pops a bit.


i was so happy with how these turned out!  too cute!  i made 55 for the shower -- along with the rsvp's i got many great compliments! :)

i hope you enjoyed today's project ---

don't forget to stop back in a day or two -- i'll be posting the favors i made - cute butterflies!  you won't want to miss them!

thanks for stopping by!  happy stamping . . .
