Baby Bundle by Stampin Up and me for the PP #44 Challenge.

Good Monday evening to you.

We had a great Easter weekend with our dear family and friends + as an icing on the cake, we had some beautiful sun shine, which made most of our snow and ice disappear! . Oh my.. how I love the heat of the sun. The days went by way to quick, but I am sure that was a good thing. :)

When I came home I checked my email and there it was .. I received another Cut Above Award from the Paper Players Challenge 'girls'. Now what about that? My last card I entered in for the PP Challenge #43, they liked! loved! I can't tell you how thrilled I was about receiving the Award! Again it felt like icing on the Monday Morning-cake. :)

This is what Anne Marie Hille from Stampin' Anne had to say about my Elephant card. She is the sweetest thing! Really. (Hi Anne.. thanks for your beautiful and encouraging words about my card.. You also make gorgeous cards, but you are also so sweet and talented with your words! Thank You!)
Okay there we go!

  • I just loved Pauline's adorable Elephant card with the fun mix of colors. The little popped up ear and the tiny 'peanut' tag were the perfect additions to her clean and simple design. such a sweet card to welcome a little peanut to the world. Congratulations on being my pick for a Cut Above this week.
Well I have to tell you. .. last week I saw so many beautiful Challenges, but I had a huge lack of time to create... painful.. but don't get me wrong.. I had a great week! I picked up our 2 friends from Holland at the airport. They are going to stay with us for 6 months! 6 whole months of 'dutch' around me. Can it get any better than that? Of course they will travel through Canada as well.. but we will be their home base :) Oh.. they are such a gift to me, to us.. They are so caring and fun and they just embrace this crazy household here :). Yes I feel blessed. I /we love living in community.. it makes life so much better!

Anyway... I am getting side tracked here.
This morning I had some time on my hands and created this baby card for the Paper Players Challenge #44. I know, what is it with that urge to create baby cards lately. Please don't ask me to answer that one. I really have no idea!

I inked up for the first time my new Stampin Up Baby Bundle Stamp set. (#120576 - $24.95. This set has 16 different images) Oh I can see myself using this one over and over. The 'baby sky' is the limit with this set!
I wanted to make a little Whisper White card stock dresser with a cute bear sticking out. Well.. it totally worked. Oh how fun! I used my round SU tab punch (#119864 - $23.95) at the bottom of the dresser. It just needed a bit of fancy-ness there. Do you recognize half of the tab punch. I love it.

To finish it all off I added one of those gorgeous Sweet Stitches Designer Fabric Brads from Stampin Up (#121880 - $8.95). These are available in the Mini Catalogue for only a couple of more days.

Cute cute cute! I hope it will inspire you as well.
Well.. The night is still young.. and my house is still in need of a clean up.. So guess where I am heading too.

Inky hugs, Pauline


  1. Such a clever creation Pauline! I love how you used the punch at the bottom of the dresser and how all the sweet baby things peek out of the drawers! So happy you play with us at the Paper Players!

  2. This is just adorable, Pauline! So unique and creative! Thanks for playing with The Paper Players again this week!

  3. Leuke kaart, Pauline! Heel lief.
    Veel plezier met je vrienden over de vloer!

    Hugs, San

  4. Hoi Pauline, je krijgt vast weer heel veel leuke opmerkingen over deze kaart te horen, ik vind hem zóóó lief. Groetjes van Joke (ook knutselvriendinnetje van Sandra)

  5. Nou toch maar eens in het Nederlands :). Ik vind je kaart een juwéél! Enig; het idee om een ladenkast te gebruken en dat beertje en die schoentjes....zó schattig en lief. En hartstikke mooi natuurlijk. Ik ben trouwnes ook weg van de achtergrond. Ach; alles klopt op deze kaart. Perfect!
    Geniet van 6 maanden "Nederlanders" om je heen. Kennen ze in Canada het fenomeen "een bakkie doen"?. Zo niet; grijp je kans :) En geniet!

    p.a. We hebben al ruim 10 dagen zomerse temperaturen in Nederland. Met bijbehorende zon en blauwe luchten....We boffen!

  6. Pauline, this is just so clever....I think I may have to CASE this, if I have your permission! SWEET! Enjoy your company! And thanks for playing with us!

  7. What an adorable take on the sketch! Love it!

  8. That is so sweet! LOVE the dresser!

  9. Aww, Pauline, you are very welcome and thank YOU for your sweet words! :) I think you are officially the queen of "adorable baby cards"! This is just awesome! Love how you created the dresser and those little, hanging booties just make me smile! So happy you joined us again this week at The Paper Players this week! Hugs! :)

  10. This is just adorable - I agree with Anne Marie, you are the queen of adorable baby cards. This one absolutely takes the cake. I love the teddy bear peeking out of the drawer and the booties hanging from the drawer pull.


Thanks so much for leaving your comment. Enjoy the rest of your day! Take care, Pauline
