I wanted to make some baby cards, but was a bit short on ideas, so thought I'd Google images using the stamp set I'd chosen.  I had a bit of a giggle when a few of the cards that came up were mine - it hadn't even occurred to me to look over cards I'd made, for inspiration! 

I really liked the way Janine Rawlins used the Baby Bundle stamp set on this card, so that was my starting point.  I stamped the cute little images on watercolour paper using Jet Black Staz-On ink.  The 'boy' card was coloured using Stampin' Up!'s Watercolour Wonder crayons, and the 'girl' card was coloured with inkpads and an aquapainter.

Stamps: Baby Bundle, Curly Cute
Card: Bashful Blue, Whisper White, watercolour paper
Ink: Jet Black Staz-on inkpad, Bashful Blue stampin' pad, Crumb Cake stampin' pad
Other: Pinking Hearts border punch, Bashful Blue satin ribbon, sponge dauber, Watercolour Wonder Crayons (Brights Collection), aquapainter, blender pen, mini glue dots

Stamps: Baby Bundle, Short & Sweet
Card: Crumb Cake, Pretty in Pink, watercolour paper
Ink: Jet Black Staz-on inkpad, Whisper White craft stampin' pad, Crumb Cake stampin' pad, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose and Daffodil Delight stampin' pads
Other: Pretty in Pink scallop dots ribbon, Twitterpated buttons, aquapainter, mini glue dots, tab die (not SU!)

I had a lot of fun making these sweet cards (colouring is so therapeutic, isn't it?). 


  1. These cards are so cute, I love the addition of the buttons on the pink one.
