Hi Stamping Friends!
What sweeter blessing than a new baby! Today's cards are perfect for sending congratulations to the new parents! I received these card ideas as swap cards from a couple of my fellow stamping demonstrators. Enjoy!
Baby Pull Toys Big Love Card
The adorable Baby Pull Toys stamp set will soon be retiring, so if you know someone who's expecting, you might want to get it now.
Background Basics—I love this sweet card created by Amy Storrie! She started by stamping the Baby Pull Toys hearts image in Bumblebee ink over the front of a Bumblebee card base measuring 11" x 4-1/4" and scored at 5-1/2". Next, she wrapped some Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon around a 2-1/2" x 4" piece of Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper and adhered it along the side of the card front. She tied a bow from the same ribbon and attached it with some Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
Sweet Pull Toy—Amy stamped the Baby Pull Toys image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a Basic White Stitched Shapes large square die-cut, then colored it in with Stampin' Blends Markers. She used Mango Melody and Soft Suede for the giraffe, and Poppy Parade and Bermuda Bay for the pull toy. It's layered onto a Bermuda Bay Layering Squares scalloped square die-cut and popped up with Dimensionals.
Sweet Sentiment—Amy stamped the Baby Pull Toys sentiment in Bermuda Bay onto a Basic White Stitched So Sweetly die-cut. It's popped up with Dimensionals, too, and adorned with a Playing With Patterns Resin Dot. Super cute!

Oval Occasions Welcome Little One Card
Laura Barto created this sweet baby card with the help of the Oval Occasions Bundle. The Oval Occasions stamp set will be retiring soon, but the Double Oval Punch will be back in the upcoming Annual Catalog…yay!
Background Basics—Laura's card begins with a So Saffron card base and a 5-1/2" x 1/2" Pear Pizzazz card stock strip adhered across the middle. Next, she added a 5-1/2" x 1-1/4" strip of Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper on the background. Like Amy's card above, she wrapped some Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon around the card front, then added a separate bow in the same ribbon on top with Multipurpose Glue.
Bunny Label—Laura used the retiring Stitched Nested Label Dies to create a Basic White large label. She stamped the Oval Occasions bunnies image on that with Gray Granite and colored in the flowers with Blushing Bride, Bumblebee and Pear Pizzazz Stampin' Write Markers. She also sponged on some Pear Pizzazz ink with a Sponge Dauber for the grass. She die-cut another Pear Pizzazz Stitched Nested Labels shape to add to the back of the label and adhered both layers to the card front with SEAL Adhesive.
Sweet Sentiment—She stamped the Oval Occasions greeting in Gray Granite onto Basic White, then punched it out with the Double Oval Punch. She punched a scalloped oval with the same punch from Blushing Bride, layered them and popped them up with Dimensionals. Wonderful!
