Hello, crafty friends! Nicole here today to introduce you to an adorable new stamp set called New Baby. This one has me getting a little, tiny bit, of the baby fever! It includes a onesie that you can adorn with the cutest little giraffe, owl, or sentiments. Also, what baby card would be complete without those precious hand and foot prints. I was lucky enough to be able to use this stamp set for my sister-in-law’s baby shower last month, along with a matching banner I made for her.
If you’ve seen some of my past cards that I’ve created, along with plenty of future ones, you’ll notice I’m kind of into the shaker cards. These are so fun to fill and design, and are so easy that you can whip them together pretty quickly. I love the shaker kits because they all have coordinating die cuts that you can purchase.
Start by stamping the onesie on white cardstock and then adding your favorite little animal; I chose the owl since they had a woodland theme. I colored the onesie using Prismacolor pencils and blended using a blending pencil. Next, cut it out leaving a small boarder of white.
Then, use the shaker card die cut to cut the two different papers that you want for the inside square and the outer design. Every now and then, I like to try my hand in pattern mixing, and get a little wild! I think these two compliment each other without being too crazy.
Now it’s time to start putting everything together. Adhere the foam piece to the blank card that comes in the kit. Then, tape or glue the small square cardstock in the open space, and then tape your little onesie in the center. Now for the fun part! Add all the sequins that your little heart desires! Once that is done, peel the backing off of the foam piece and place the clear sheet on top.
Next, glue the other piece of cardstock that you cut on to the top of the card. Cut a strip of kraft paper about ¾” high by 3” wide, and stamp “Congrats” with your preferred embossing ink, add embossing powder, and then use your heat gun to emboss. Then, cut a smaller strip from any coordinating cardstock and emboss “baby boy” (or girl) using gold embossing powder. Make to cuts on the bottom so it becomes a ribbon/banner shape. The cardstock pack that I used included these small, thin ribbon shaped pieces that worked perfectly with my design, but you can easily create your own. To finish this card, simply glue or tape the accent pieces together and then onto the top of the card.
This card was so much fun to make, especially since the New Baby stamp set lets you design your own adorable onesie! The possibilities are endless with this stamp set, and I can’t wait to see what you all create!
