New baby card: Hanging baby clothes

Today I have another baby card for you. I made this one for some friends who just got their second child.

New baby card by crealotte DesignThe background of this new baby card is embossed with little clouds and I added two clouds made with the cupcake punch from Stampin’up. The clothes are made with the owl builder punch. I like to use my punches in a different way than the one they were initially intended to, it allows for so much more creativity…

Hope you liked it!

How to use of vellum on a card?

This card was made for baby Anthony. I wanted something simple but at the same time different from what I usually make. I thus decided to use vellum on this one. Vellum gives a soft touch to the card, perfect for a newborn baby card. As you know, vellum is semi translucent. This means that also the glue can be seen through. I therefore used some brads on both top and bottom of the card and added some glue behind the center piece, to keep everything in place.

I decided to make this card completely cream and blue to keep the classic baby colours. As this card was meant as baptism card, I did not use a standard baby stamp, but added this little bird as sign of peace between earth and heaven.

Hope you liked this week’s card. Have a nice day!

Baby drawer card – baby boy congratulations

Hi everyone!

I am just hopping by very quickly as my time is “counted” lately. We have decided to add sport to our already very busy schedule, which eats away on my precious crafting time. But it is necessary and doing me very good. The nights after we go to the gym, I am able to sleep now! No more waking up in the middle of the night… Just great! But now, on top of that, I have a couple of big orders to fullfil, so the remaining crafting time I have is going into the making of birth announcements, baby favors and communion favors. All together this means I only have a little time to spend with you, to make pictures, to write blogposts, and so on. So I decided to schedule a couple of posts in advance and share with you some of my older cards for which I already have the pictures made, processed and uploaded online.

So here is the first one: my favorite baby drawer card. It is made based on the same fold as the “baby girl’s chest” post I shared with you a couple of years back, but I prefer the colors of this one. What about you?

However, as I told you, I am just hopping by, thus no further chatting today. But if you want more information, don’t hesitate to leave me a comment, I will make time to answer as soon as I can.

Window card – A card for baby Anthony

Here is another baby themed card I made. I made it for one of my customers and the newborn baby was called Anthony. I wanted to make something a bit different compared to the usual standard cards and opted for a hanging/balancing onesie in a circle window. It made me think of a child’s mobile to hang above their beds. I had to make it a tri-fold so that the text written inside the card would not be visible thru the circle window. I kept the rest of the design quiet simple, though I used patterned paper! Oh yes, I have serious problems using DSP on my cards. One way or another, I always end up using only cardstock or decorate my cardstock myself to create exactly the look I want…

What about a personalized baby album as birth present?

Hi Folks,

Today I’ll share with you a present I made for friends who just became the parents of the little Joseph. I wanted to make something special, so I decided to make a 1 year album in which they had 1 page per month to add pictures of the growing baby.

Baby Onesie

Hi my friends,

Hope you are having a wonderful day! I surely am as my deadlines are finally over 🙂 🙂 ! The stress goes down the mojo is back! Today I share with you a card I made some months ago for one of my clients. It was meant for a baby shower. I used this baby onesie as template, embossed the little dots by hand (difficult the see in the picture, but they are there) and finally decorated it.

Hope you like it …

Cheers

Following your footsteps

Baby boy – Iris fold inspiration 2

Hi crafter friends,

I promised you a while back that I would share my second buggy card. This time I also made a picture of the inside… I love decorating the inside and the envelope, so that everything coordinates well together.

Tell me how you like it….
