Now on to my projects! Isn't this the most darling baby ensemble you've seen? (if I do say so for myself) I am so pleased with it!! :)
My projects uses the following die cuts: Baby Shoe, Oval Window A7 Scallop Card - Horizontal, Rectangle Picture Frame Large, and the Tuck Top Cube Box with Layers Set.
And I got to play with the most luxurious Velvet Paper I've ever used! I put it through the Cuttlebug using a Spellbinder Oval Scalloped Nestabilities and when I took it out of the die, it had embossed it as well! It was SO COOL! I definitely have to get more of it! They have so many pretty colors to choose from, and you must have them ALL!
Here you can see a close up of the Lavender Velvet Paper, and the Rectangle Picture Frame Large. I embossed the frame with the new "Kassie's Brocade" Cuttlebug Folder, added glittery swirls and corner die cuts, then topped it off with pearls, a fluffy organza bow and a lavender rose from Prima Marketing. I layered the frame onto a sweet purple plaid paper from the Boy's Nursery paper stack from Die Cuts with a View then to the velvet paper, then to white Bazzill cardstock.
This is the most darling Baby Shoe ever! I used lavender plaid paper for my shoe and it is so easy to construct! These little shoes are perfect for party favors at a Baby Shower! I used tulle for my fluffy bow, and decorative pearls for all of the edging. Add a swirly diecut, and a rose on top of the bow, then fill it with candy!
I made a Baby Block out of the Tuck Top Cube Box with Layers Set, substituting one piece of the layers set with a piece of the Velvet Paper. My block letters are from Inkadinkado and I added the faux stitching with a Micron black pen. Once again, my bow is made of tulle, another Prima Marketing Rose and tiny pearls to finish it off. This cute little block can hold small mints or a tiny gift for your guests at the Baby Shower. My paper is from the Nursery Stack from Die Cuts with a View.
How cute is this card? I just love it! I've used the Oval Window A7 Scallop Card - Horizontal die cut for the card, and added a sweet paper from the Nursery stack on the front. I cut out a Scalloped Oval using the Lavender Velvet Paper and added tiny pearls around it. If you look close, you can see how the velvet paper was embossed when I cut out the Oval! My sentiment is by Stampendous and I layered it to velvet paper. I had cut with a border die from Spellbinders. More swirls, fluffy organza bows, roses, pearl sprays and white satin ribbon, and the card is a gift in itself when you add the baby's picture!
