Many of you have seen the post below this one of the baby basket I made for a family member. Well, Alexandria has a big brother named Andrew. So, hoping that he isn't feeling left out with the new baby I decided to make him a little card and got him a book about being a big brother. The whole sentiment is "Life is good" then on the inside it says "when you're a big brother". I love the dinosaurs on Paper Doll Dress Up so I used them.

Each of the New Arrival items I cut several times and layed to give them a little depth and help sturdy them. I cut the baby dress at 5". I layered three prima flowers and a jeweled brad for the flower. I tied three tiny bows and adhered them to the bottom of the dress with glue dots. On the scalloped bottom I also added tiny adhesive pearls to each scallop. For the bloomers I cut them in a different shade of pink and ran them through the cuttlebug to help them look a little more frilly.
These little baby feet I cut from New Arrival at 3 inches on glitter paper. The scalloped layers I cut from my Nestabilites. I embossed the white with my Swiss Dots cuttlebug folders.
I also added a small ribbon around his neck.
The wording on the tag is computer generated. The tags are cut from Nestabilites. I added an eyelet to run ribbon through and tied it on the main ribbon attached to the box.The baby carriage I believe was cut at 4 1/2. I cut many many layers of this. The bottom of the carriage is embossed with the Cuttlebug using a Fiskars heart plate. The hood of the carriage is cut from patterned paper that had a lacy look to it. The baby blanket is cut from pink vellum to give it a softer look. It's hard to see in the photo. I added adhesive pearls to the fold in the hood and on the handle. I glued a ribbon to seperate the baby blanket and the hood and added a skittle. I also added to skittles to the base of the wheel.

I used a Martha Stewart border punch. The stamp is cut out with Nestabilites. The plasic flower near the stamp is something I found on clearance at Hobby Lobby. The sentiment is computer generated. I used stickels on the "steam" over the bunny and inside his ears.
Thanks for stopping by!
Here is the card I came up with using the sketch. I made this card for my dad's birthday next Sunday. He loves golf so I used this House Mouse stamp. It's Maxwell Golf Ball & Tees. He's so cute...don't ya think?
The candle border punch is one of the new slim line EK success punches. Michael's just started carrying them! Check them out.
The circle text was done with Word.
I also used "skittles" down the side. The paper is from the new DCWV Latte stack.

Here is a card I did today for my cousin who lives far far away in Washington state. He's in the Air Force and he and his wife just had a beautiful baby girl named Emma. I made this card for him using the Birthday card cut/emboss combo from the Cuttlebug. The star is from George. The little brad on the ribbon is corduroy. It's so cute. I always struggle with cards for the men. It so much fun to use flowers and bling but the men just don't get excited about that.... LOL. Oh well, I think it turned out O.K. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Birthday Jeremy!!!!!

Well, it's another new week and that means another wonderful challenge over at the Cuttlebug Spot. This week the designers were asked to create a Valentine for a child using the cuttlebug. I decided to play along since most of my girlfriends all have kids now. I need to catch up...but that's another day. Anyway, one of my oldest friends just had a little boy right after Thanksgiving so it's his first Valentine's Day and I thought the plane from new arrival would be perfect. I went Cuttlebug crazy on this one. I used the heart A2 folder on the blue block behind the plane. I used a new cuttlebug border I just got the other day on the blue side bar. I also used the Love Language A2 embossing folder on the three hearts and on the wings of the plane. Also, the little stamp was a cut emboss stamp that came with my bug. The heart border is a Martha Stewart Valentines Lace punch. The windows are little heart eyelets....if you click on the picture you can see them better. I also bling'd the blue border with a few self-adhesive gems. Hope you enjoy!!!! Have a great day!
