Moon Baby, Baby Card, 2017 Occasions Catalog

I don't usually buy baby stamp sets.  I find I don't use them enough to justify buying them.  But this set was just too darn cute to pass up. I fell in love with the baby sleeping on the moon image and that is what sold me on the set.  I made a card using that image back in January.  You can see that card here.  There's several other images in the set yet to be used.  I plan on trying them all out!  Lucky you!!! LOL  The stamps (wood mount) fit in the container like a puzzle!  I have to only take one out at a time so I remember how to put them back in.  

I was snooping around at Clair Daly's site and I found this fun baby card to make. I used different colored paper because I didn't have what she used.  But it's okay, this is a boy or girl card.  You can see the original card here.  

I used the green paper from the "Blossoms and Bliss" decorative 12" x 12" pack. I cut that paper 4" x 5-1/4".  Then I stamped the baby onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock that was 2" wide by "very long" so I could punch and then trim it to  4-1/4".  While my stamp pad was still dirty, I inked it up again and stamped the image on a scrap piece of the decorative "Blooms & Bliss" paper.  And then I stamped the umbrella on a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock.  I cut out the sleeper part and the umbrella.  I taped them in place.  I also colored in the face and hands of the baby. I colored in the hair and added a little Pink Pirouette for the cheeks.  

I cut a piece of decorative paper from the "Falling in Love" pack of paper to 1" x 6".  After punching the end I cut it to 4-3/4" long.  I added Dimensionals to that strip and stuck it to the back of the stamped white piece.  I tied some linen thread to the top and when I tied the knot, I added a 4" piece of cream "Lace Trim" to it. I had folded that 4" piece in half and tied the middle of it with the linen thread.  I then cut the edges at an angle after cutting the one end that was a loop.  In other words, I cut the loop open and then I had four ends to trim up.  

I stamped the "Hello Baby" image twice and used the Modern Label punch to punch them out.  I could have trimmed them a bit closer to the words but then why use the punch??  I think it looks fine as it is.  The white showing on "hello" is at the top and there is more white showing on the "baby" at the bottom.  It all balances out.  I taped those pieces in place, but I only taped the left sides of each one.  

I added rhinestones and I also added a pearl to the top of the umbrella, you can kind of see it.  Click on the photo for a closer view. And the card was done.  Such a sweet and cute baby card!!!  Into my stash it goes, I have no need for one right now!!  See why I don't usually buy baby sets???

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
