Oh Baby! Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop



In the middle of each month the Design Team members for Serendipity Stamps get to dazzle you with beautiful and creative designs using Serendipity Stamps and Dies! When you hop with us today you will find yourselves visiting paper crafters from California to the Carolinas and... lest we forget!.... Canada! : )  

So what do you say?! let's get hopping!!




In following with our Hop theme this month "Baby Cards" I created this little 4" square card from all white card stock.  I added a top panel that I ran through my Big Shot with a quilted Embossing Folder. The picture doesn't show it well but I wanted to give that soft baby quilt look to my card : ) Next I cut three "Baby" die cuts and glued them together and attached them to the card front.  My flowers might surprise you! This is the stamp I used to create them:


Surprised? I love this Tulip Vase image just as it is but for my card today I didn't use the image as it was designed.  Instead I stamped the image on water color paper - colored the pretty flowers with Ziggys before fussy cutting them out of the vase and adding them to my baby card.  Using partial images this way really stretches your stamp inventory!!


You should have arrived here form Miriam Napier's blog but just in case you snuck in the back door - there is a "Hop Listing Order" below.  Please be sure to hit us all.  You won't want to miss even one blog because there will be a $20.00 gift certificate to Serendipity Stamps store to one lucky, randomly selected, commenter from all the blogs : ) Hoppers can leave comments through 8/21/16. The winner will be announced on Mary's blog on 8/22/16.



I don't know about you but I can't get enough of those beautiful little babies or of Serendipity Stamps' sweet baby themed products! Here is just one more little 4" square card I created using the Baby Bootie and Bow Die as well as an altered "A Little Note" image.

Two beautiful baby cards, Patti! Wow! There's something about white and then the soft colors that just make you want to squeeze a little one. Your cards are so pretty. Excellent use of the tulip image on the first card and such a sweet bootie die on the second. Well done, Patti...wonderfully well done! :)

Oh Patti the prettiest of cards. Love the embossed blanket and the delicate colours. Clever how you've used part of the tulip and vase stamp. Wow that sweet bootie is adorable. Your cards today have brought a smile to my face, thank you x

Jeanne J. said...

Patti I love that you used a non traditional baby image - the flower bouquet and made it soft and dreamy - feminine and elegant all at the same time! Beautiful! The bootie is amazing too - love that you stamped in the same color as the bootie too! It reminds me I need to stamp in color more often!

*Vicki* said...

WOW Patti!! These are both so beautiful, soft and elegant looking!! You've done a beautiful job with these darling cards!! Love the scalloped borders and lovely dies you've used with them!! :) Very creative with the floral image too!! HUGS

Mary Dew Lee said...

Gorgeous Patti! When my girls were born I framed my favorite card or two to hang in their rooms (this was before I stamped so they are store bought cards!). Your tulip card would definitely have been a framer! Love the quilted embossing and the "eyelet" edging that gives a Fabric look to the cards to coordinate with our August Fabric challenge!

I Card Everyone said...

I adore white, and isn't it just perfect for a baby quilt? Your card is stunning, Patti! LOve tulips [I carried them down the aisle!] and you've tinted yours a gorgeous pink! That lime-y green is a current favorite, too! See... told you: masterpieces!

Leslie Miller said...

Ohhhh, these are such sweet baby cards and I do love baby cards! I don't have much opportunity to make them these days, darn it. Clever you to cut the tulips off the vase. Such a pretty spray in the corner.

Darnell J Knauss said...

I can't remember the last time I saw such sweet baby cards, Patti! I love the soft white quilt effect and way to go altering that vase of flowers so beautifully! And that yellow and white - yum - makes me hungry for a slice of lemon meringue pie!! Hugs, Darnell
