Bitty Baby Blessings from Papertrey Ink

This morning I'm showcasing some stamps from Papertrey Ink; I made baby cards using images from two of the sets, Bitty Baby Blessings and Everyday Blessings. Two of the cards can be used for a baptism or Christening and the other two can be given alone or with a gift.

Pink card: I used a CB ef to make the background paper. Becca Fekken, who has one fabulous blog, showed this beautiful card using the technique. I colored with ef with Raspberry Fizz (PTI)and got a mauve looking piece of paper. I stamped the baby carriage twice, once on Select White cs (PTI), embossed it with the CB ef, cut out the carriage and used pop dots to give it some dimension. Small pearls (Michael's) were added to the oval die cuts (Spellbinders) and to the wheels of the carriage. The sentiment was stamped and a tag was die cut (Spellbinders Tag Trio.) The lace ruffles were adhered with that wonderful tape you can buy at Papertrey Ink called Scor-Tape. This particular tape measures 1/8" and is perfect for using on ribbons or for small lines of glitter you may want to apply. It's transparent, so it's almost impossible to see when it's applied.

Summer Sunrise baby card: The CB ef was used again for this religious baby card. An image from the Everyday Blessings set was used and inked with Summer Sunrise (PTI). Ruffles were added below the cream colored ribbon. Pearls were added, too, for an even softer look. The inside sentiment is from the Bitty Baby Blessings set; this is another example of how you can use parts of various sets to achieve the look or sentiment you desire.

The Little Sailor card uses a smaller image from the Bitty Baby Blessings set. The images were inked, die cut, and adhered with pop dots. The ribbon was a piece attached to a department store bag. The two little white brads, which are perfect for coloring with Copics, were all I had left from my stash, so please forgive me for not using three. The Select White paper was sponged using Ranger distress inks.

Last, but not least, is a 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" Bundle of Joy card size that is perfect for adding to a baby boy gift. The baby onesie was inked on dp and cut out. It was adhered to the front of the card using pop dots. I made a boo boo on the circle die cut, so punched out small circles from matching dp to cover up :-) Small silver half beads were added to each corner. Misc ribbon was wrapped around the main image and a small tag with a sentiment from Bitty Baby Blessings was attached with white floss. Looking at this picture has me thinking: Why didn't I emboss the cream cs with a CB ef? Will use the idea on the next one...

Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting today; I hope that you're inspired and will use one idea for your next project.
