More Baby Items

Have you ever made something for someone else and completely fallen in love with it for yourself?? This next item is going to be really hard for me to part with tomorrow.

It's for my work friend Amanda. Tomorrow is her shower at work and after going to her family shower on Saturday ... not sure what else she could ever need, but thank you cards might be in order.

I made 12 note cards that are blank inside. I figured that way she could use them for thank yous or for announcements or for shower gifts for others. I also stamped the image on each envelope. I then made a cute little holder for all of them and a coordinating tag.

The image that I used is from the new TAC set called Special Delivery. I colored it with colored pencils and OMS. I edged the image and sentiment with Brilliance Blue ink that I sponged on. I made the gift bag myself with my ScorPal. I have never made one of these and it was sooo easy. I used eyelets from Mia's Cottage Hardware collection to attach my handle and for the center of the flower. The flowers that I used were from the Hillary and Elizabeth flower collections.

I made a little coordinating tag with the Merchandising Tag punch and stamped to and from with a stamp from the Winter Tags set. I set an eyelet on this tag and then tied it on with some coordinating blue ribbon.

To make these cute little onesie cards you have to make a card base that is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and folded at the top. You then use your circle punch to punch out a neck and 2 leg holes. After that you cut a "7" and a backwards "7" from the punched circle to just under where you want the arms to be. To dress it up a bit I punched slightly larger circles out of white cardstock and used that for cuffs and collars. I used the Special Delivery image again put a much smaller portion of it and punched that in a circle as well. It was colored with colored pencils and OMS and edged with Brilliance Blue ink that I sponged on. For an added touch I added 3 tiny buttons to the bottom of the card that I threaded a sliver of the patterned paper through.

For the outside of the envelope I stamped the image again using the Palette Noir ink but left it plain and didn't color it.

It's great to make handmade gifts for friends and loved ones that appreciate them. I know that Amanda will love these ... again they are just sooo cute that it's going to be hard to give them up!


Oh, Chelsea, these are adorable. The design is wonder and so is the colouring and all the work you put into them. Your gf is going to be thrilled.
