I already posted these on my Stampin Up blog, I know not all of my followers are followers there, and I wanted to share these with you. Please know that the image on these is not Stampin' Up. First I have to say that Ilina Crouse, a fellow PhillyInker, taught me how to make these cards at a Make and Take at one of our meetings. And I am so glad that she did!! A friend from work is having a baby, a little girl, and we had a surprise Baby Shower at work for her today. I wanted to make her some cards as a gift, and I knew these were going to be perfect for her. The "Onesie" itself is all hand cut. I could have used my circle punch for the neck hole, but I fear, my circle punch has seen better days. The "ruffle" around the neck and leg holes is YoYo Yellow cardstock (retired)with the Scallop circle punch. I stamped the image twice, once on the card and then on some scraps. I colored the one on the scraps with my YoYo Yellow Stampin' Write marker. Once it was dry, I used Crystal Effects over top to give it some shine. After all of that was dry I cut it out, put on some dimensionals and added it to the card. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up's "Short & Sweet" set. I decided I wanted to make a box for the cards, and found this one at SplitCoastStampers. The top is made with a sheet of Transparencies, which I got at a local office supply store. I have to say Transparencies are not the easiest to work with. :( And BTW they don't cut well with the Scallop Punch. I guess it is too thick? Anyway, I love how these turned out!
I was pointed in the direction of this charity by a fellow Stampin Up Demonstrator, Melissa. They can use donations of cards, either Handmade, or Store bought for residents of nursing homes. What a great way to share your creativity, while brightening the day of others!!! Here is their website:

A mother of a 5 year old boy and a 8 year old girl. I love being a mom! I married a guy I met in first grade! We married May 18th, 2002.
I wanted to have a place that I could show some of my creations. When my sister is able to visit she always asks me what I have been working on, so I thought this way I could keep her updated! It's also a way to show some of my other friends and family what I have been working on! This also gives me a little push to get some things made and posted.
I hope you enjoy the things you find here, and maybe even find some inspiration! Some of the things found on my Blog are by Stampin' Up! Ask me how you can get the stamps, or feel free to look at the current catalog found in the sidebar.(it will download, it takes a few minutes). Feel free to ask me any questions!
