Buttons, Butterfly, and a Birthday


The picture of this card didn't come out so great.  There is a big storm on the way and it's very grey outside.  Red, white and blue are my favorite colors and it's a perfect card for my stash.  I'm hoping that I am coming out of bad card slump!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Papertrey Ink-Button Bits and My Favorite Things -Big Greetings
Ink: Versafine & Papertrey Ink
Paper:  Bazzill & The Paper Studio
Misc:  Buttons, paper punches, half pearls, Papertrey Ink Button dies

Baby Gifts

I've been a serious slump lately.  It feels like that everything I make comes out horrible and it seems like I'm throwing more cards in the trash then adding to my stash!

I decided to crochet a baby afghan for a girl at work that is having her first baby, it's going to be a boy.  I wanted to add a little something extra to the gift.  So, I designed a set of four cards to add to the package.  I thought that these would be nice for her to send to the grandparents with a picture of the baby enclosed.


For the afghan, I crocheted a large rectangle granny square using 100% cotton yarn.  The cards, I cut out using a craft knife.  The cuffs of the pants and shirt are adhered using pop up dots.  The pocket is actually the center  piece of the overalls that I just trimmed down a bit.  Then, I used a gel pen to add a little faux stitching to the pocket.  The pocket is also adhered with pop up dots.


Using my Cricut, I cut out the little frog body, but used paper punches and Stickles for his eyes.  His eyes are also adhered with pop up dots.


Inside, I stamped a sentiment.  Then added a few buttons to the overalls.
