Baby Shower Card and Onesies

I love the new baja breeze ribbon from Stampin' Up! And I love this combo... Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, and Close to Cocoa. I made this card for a friend's baby shower!

The stamp sets I used were Fun & Fast Notes and Riveted (which is retired). For inks I used Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, and Chocolate Chip. And for card stock I used Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Close to Cocoa, and Whisper White. This was my first chance to use some of the new designer paper from the catalog. It's called Bella Rose. For the main image, I used the blender pen with the Baja Breeze and Kiwi Kiss and then the white gel pen. I used the ticket corner punch and then used dimensionals to layer it onto the other layers. I created the saying by using the 1 1/4 and the 1 3/8 circle punches! I also cut out the circle for the diaper pin and attached it with another dimensional. For the rest of the card I used the 1 3/8 square punch and punched out squares from the Bella Rose dp and Baja Breeze (embossed with Cuttlebug's Swiss Dots folder). I attached those to the close to cocoa cs. I also added the new Baja Breeze striped ribbon!

Sorry about the bad picture, but I also wanted to show you the onesies that I stamped for part of the gift!!! I took this right before I ran out the door for the shower because I forgot to take a picture earlier. Anyway, I used the Bugs and Kisses set and Best Friends Alphabet Lower (retired). I used burnt umber and water lily green Palette Hybrid ink (not from SU). Before I started stamping on them, I washed them and then put them in the dryer with no fabric softner. From what I read this part is important. On the first one I stamped the little one's name along with some bugs. I also stamped some ants on the sleeves on both of them. You can't really see the other one, (sorry!!) but I stamped three of the bugs and the then the saying "bugs and kisses" underneath them. On the back of both of the onesies, I stamped the saying "Cute as a Bug" from the same set!!! I also heat set them in the dryer for 15 minutes to set the ink. I tied them up with the baja breeze striped ribbon.

Love that baja breeze striped ribbon!!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I wish you a very creative day!!!
