Surprise!!! Its a boy!

I can’t believe we kept this under out hats all week but one of the designers on the Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff team is having a baby today! We are having a surprise virtual baby shower for Tamara who is expecting her new baby boy tonight! If you want to wish her well you can leave a comment of support on her blog Scrapcation Getaway. We love you Tamara, and wish you the best! Here is the card I made for the second time momma, I used Babies and bows, Baby Bingo card freebie and the new Sweet Stitches paper pack. The text frame around the baby shoe is today’s freebie.

Stamps, paper: Lindsay's Stamp Stuff

I used the sketch at Mojo Monday to layout this card, it was easy to use the sketch and digi-paper. I cut a circle from the brown polkadot paper using the circle selection tool and pasted it in a new document, then layered the bingo card over it (I cropped out the one I wanted from the sheet) and added a drop shadow.  I printed a strip of the yellow plaid and a scallop circle of the large blue dot and layered a white scallop over that and added my frame and shoe stamp. Then I cut the 3 pieces out and layered them on a 6″ circle card, stitched on a few buttons and added some homemade crinkle ribbon. Want to make your own crinkle ribbon? Here is a video, I used 100% Rayon Hug Snug seam binding from Sew True and colored it with my homemade ink sprays:

This card qualifies for the following challenges: Mojo Monday (sketch), Crafty Emmas Store (anything goes), Corrosive Challenges (masculine card), Die Cut Dreams (soft shades of vintage), In Style (baby, blue/white), Lily of the Vally (circles), My Sherri Crafts (babies)and Practical Scrappers (white pen)

I colored the baby shoe with my Copics and added highlights with a white pen, I see this technique a lot and love the look, this is my first attempt at it, me likey!

The “Sweet Little Baby” text frame is your freebie, download it here.

  1. Very clever design! I love the binding ribbon and still need to try that technique?? Thanks for sharing with us at myshericrafts this week!


  2. oh she’s going to love it. it’s too cute. I love that shoe and the card being round. I’m so can’t wait to watch the video cuz that ribbon is awesome!



  3. This is so cute! Tamara is going to love it.

    Thank you for the word art freebie. This is going to come in handy.

    I also use alcohol in a sprayer to crinkle. It dries faster and leaves a little texture on the ribbon so it holds the crinkle.

    Have a great day!


  4. Cute card, I love the new designer paper! Tamara will love this!


  5. This is just too precious–love all the details!


  6. Just darling! Love the brown and blue and the freebie is great 🙂 Thank you for the video too 🙂


  7. Now I’m curious … do you use the liquid watercolor for anything else? You mentioned that it’s like the reinker bottles, only bigger. So could you use it as a reinker?

    Thanks for the tutorial! I’ve seen wrinkle ribbon and refused to pay the outrageous prices people were wanting for it because I just KNEW someone was going to spill the beans on the “top secret” method for making it! 🙂

    Thanks again!


    • Hi Sophia,
      I use the liquid watercolor to make my glimmer mists and color wash spray and to do shaving cream marbizing. I’ve used it to re0ink the kids inkpads too, you might need a drop or two of glycern though to thicken it up a bit for your inkpads as the color is super intence but not as viscus of the store bought reinker, jut a drop or two of glycern, it will haelp the ink stick to the stamp:)
