Tag Alongs Baby Card

Oh my, yet another baby card!!! The last for a while I hope! I love this little "Tag Alongs" set. It's also got a penguin, a cupcake and a wedding cake in it. I'm tempted to cut out the "to: and from:) in each one and avoid taping the wording off. I have yet to use them with the words. But I'll probably just keep them intact, they will sell better that way when I'm done with them and ready to give them up! I have a tote full of stamp sets I need to sell, I just don't have the time to sit down and get them posted. SO the tote just continues to get full!

Ok, lets talk about my card!! You do remember that this IS really all about me? LOL

I had a lot of fun with this card. It was very easy to make but yet had a lot of "things" going on. First I used the "Lattice" die. I set it in place with Dimensionals. I wanted it to be lifted off the card stock. When it sat flat against the card stock it looked very drab but once I popped it up it took on a whole new and better look.

Then I added the buttons. Aren't these buttons adorable? They are from the new Occasions mini catalog and it is the "Sweet Buttons" embosslet. This embosslet is SO darn cute. It has 6 different buttons on it and in several sizes too. I used 3 of them on my card. I tied the centers with white floss. I was going to use the Stampin' Up! linen thread but it didn't look nice on the card. The buttons really needed white.

The bottle is from the "Tag Alongs" set. I taped over the words and the third time stamping it I remembered to remove the tape!!! Ever do that?? ("No, just you Wanda!!!") I do that more times than I care to admit! After I got a usable image I colored in the bottle part using the Bashful Blue marker. I colored in the nipple using a blend of Chocolate Chip and Pretty in Pink along with the blender pen.

And don't forget the "hello baby" words in the bottle. Those came from that fun "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set. And the accent color on the card is the beautiful Marina Mist. One of my most favorite colors!
