Baby Blossoms by Carooskaartjes and Stampin Up

Hi dear Stampers.

Quess what came into our mail this morning? This super cute and unique card made by my dear friend Carolien in the Netherlands. Isn't she the sweetest thing. I have to admit.. I just can't get enough of this card and the thought that I could probable CASE it. Didn't she do an amazing job? The details are so well put together. Please click on the following link. This will bring you to her blog which is full of many beautiful projects! Carooskaartjes. She actually writes up her blog in english and dutch.. So you can even pick up on some cute dutch words. :)

The stamp set she has used is 'Baby Blossoms' from Stampin Up. Do you remember that one. It is now retired. Same with the ribbon. I love that color Real Red. It gave this card that little added spark. Love it. And I love how she rolled that sheet of plastic (or something like that) through her Big Shot with an embossing folder. How clever.

Ofcourse I couldn't resist adding my own precious Baby to this post. I took this photo of Naomi last Sunday when we went to hang out at the Bow river. 4 hours of sun and water helped her to go to sleep so easily.. Oh how I love the summer!

Well, it rained the whole morning here in Calgary, Alberta and now it is dry .. I hope it is going to stay this way, because we wanted to go to the Zoo. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Inky hugs, Pauline


  1. Hi Pauline! Long time ago, but here I am again. Nog steeds problemen met mijn blog om te plaatsen, maar ik kan in ieder geval weer een berichtje achterlaten. Ik heb genoten van al je prachtige kaarten de afgelopen maanden. En wat een leuke gezinsfoto!
    Dit kaartje van Caro is ook heel erg gaaf he! Ze maakt vaak hele mooie en originele dingen, ben ook graag op haar blog.

    Groetjes uit Nederland, Annemiek

  2. Hi, Pauline!
    Wat een prachtkaart heb je mogen ontvangen, zeg! Zo mooi gemaakt! Dat is er een om in te lijsten.
    Net als de foto van je dochter, een pláátje!

    Hopelijk is het droog gebleven daar in Canada, zodat je lekker kunt genieten van een dagje "Zoo". Veel plezier!

    Liefs, San

  7. I agree the card from your friend is beautiful. I will have to give it a try. There are so many things you can do with the Big Shot. Your little one is so precious. You now have a new follower.

  8. Hi friend, just checking in to say hi and I've missed seeing you post. Hope everything is ok with you and your family!

  9. Heeey, ik zat net even te googlen op baby blossoms en toen kwam ik mijn kaartje op jouw blog tegen. Wat leuk! Ik had het nog niet gezien. Chronisch tijdgebrek zullen we maar zeggen.
    I just love Mary's comment though! And she's absolutely right. Your precious girl is stealing the show just like it should be!
    I'm sorry I haven't been in contact for awhile, but things have been pretty hectic here. That's also why crafting is the last thing on my list these days. I'll email you all about it soon.
    Thank you my friend for getting my card in the picture. :)
    Big hug,


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