Kylie's International Blog Highlight - Baby



It's time for another of Kylie Bertucci's Monthly International Blog Highlights. Lovers of Stampin' Up! products from all around the world enter. This month the theme is Baby. You can see the gallery here and if you are so inclined you can vote for me. The top ten winners get to participate in a blog hop so I would welcome your vote.

I originally had the idea of making a unisex baby card but that is actually really hard! So I used colours that are not so traditional. The new Lemon Lime Twist teamed with Dapper Denim and Very Vanilla made for a fresh, sweet card I think.


I have used the Lovely Inside and Out bundle with this sweet image from the Moon Baby stamp set. Because the Lovely Words thinlits cut out an aperture I was able to have the baby sleeping on it. I kept it pretty simple. I loved it just like this!


Making it was really easy. I die cut hugs from the centres of the card front. I also die cut it from a piece of Dapper Denim and Lemon Lime Twist cardstock with the addition of one for the framelits from the Layering Circles set. The Dapper Denim piece had a larger circle than the Lemon Lime Twist piece. Then it was just a matter of adhering them together.  This gives the added bonus of a bit of strength to the words. The '& kisses' is punched with the Modern Label punch and matted with a plain punched shape. 


An Aqua Painter and ink from the ink pad lids was used to colour in this sweet baby and then fussy cut and adhered with glue dots.


Some strips of Dapper Denim and Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and a sentiment make for a simple inside.


And as the theme for this hightlight is all things baby I had to include a picture of my furbaby Millie. She doubles as creative director.


Millie also took exception to the baby on the card front and tried desperately to whack it off the card. What I couldn't capture on film ...... due to frantically trying to rescue my card ..... was Millie with her paw through the aperture and mouth on the baby's head! Obviously only room for one baby in our household!


Make sure you check out all of the cards in the gallery and cast some votes for your favourites.

  2. I love this card. What a clever idea. I know what you mean about the cat being the baby of the house, Gieorgio, my ragdoll just lets me live here. He also loves to supervise my stamping. He was not to happy the other day when he set on the glued sheet that our Framelits are attached to. I like to never get him freed.

  9. So cute! I love the colors! I think it's perfect for a unisex card or for a card when you know the sex. I think if you just change the color of the baby's pj's it works! Thanks for sharing!
