Baby Card by Stampin Up and me

Good morning everyone. Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you are feeling well. Our home got hit by the flue again.. I am so done with wiping noses and running out of toilet paper because everyone is using it so much and waking up in the middle of the night because of all the coughing.. This too will pass, right!

I got inspired today to make this super cute Baby Card. Don't you love that little dress?
It is like the wind got a hold of it.. Yes, it is all on purpose that this dress is sticking out this much :) No.. I to be honest.. I still have to find a way to make this dress go flat on the paper.
I got the idea of the dress from a birth announcement card from a friend of mine. No, I am not that talented. (smile)

While I was making this card I realized that I need another tool... Did I mention 'again' ? One that cuts through paper like what I did around the 'wasknijpers'.. (dutch for Cloth pins..) It looks terrible now.. but it was the best I could do with my scissor. Oh well.. there is a start for everything right!
Does anyone know what tool I could use best for this kind of job? I would love to hear from you.

The bib that you see is not a stamp, I used my SU marker and drew with it on the Taken with Teal Stampin Up card stock... It worked out perfect.

Well.. again I would love to hear from you. It always brings a smile on my face.
Hugs Pauline


  1. So cute! LOVE the little dress - it's adorable! As to a tool to cut the 'wasknijpers', I would suggest SU's hobby blade. :) tfs

  2. Hi Pauline,

    How about making two tiny holes and tie a ribbon on it instead of pegs!

    Good luck!

  3. it's adorable! is the dress made with any punches or did you cut it out free hand? what about tiny wooden clothespins like they carry at dollar stores

  4. you might like to add twine if you go that route

  5. Hi Bee.. I didn't use a punch for the dress.. I just drew it on a piece of paper and cut it out with my scissors.. I like the sound of the ideas.. I might have to try it out real soon.. the twine.. and the little wooden cloth pins.. sounds sweet too. Thanks ladies..
    Inky hugs, Pauline
