Newton’s Nook – Your Laundry Just Got Cuter

Hello everyone! Today I’m over on the Newton’s Nook blog with a sweet little baby card. I made this for some friends expecting a baby boy very soon. It was super fun to get inky messy and come up with this cute thing in the end.

I started by stamping one of the bibs from Bitty Bibs and colored in with my copics. Then I used the Baby Bib dies to cut it out along with the lacy border and bow. I glued the layers together and switched to my background.

I wanted some flocked clouds but other texture as well so I went digging in my stencils. I came out with the Serene Stripes stencil and inked it up starting in the center, fading out, with a light teal ink. Then I spread Thermoweb Transfer Gel Blanco through the Cloudy Sky stencil. I removed the stencil and set my panel aside to dry while I cleaned up. Once my laminator was heated up I ran the panel through with a decofoil flock transfer sheet in white latte. Then I die cut the panel wtih the scalloped rectangle in the Frames & Flags die set.

To bring the focus on my cute little bib, I die cut the inverted scallop frame from the Framework die set from yellow cardstock. Then deciding on how to do my sentiment came perfectly…I die cut the tag from the same Framework set out of white cardstock and stamped half of my sentiment in green on that. Then I heat embossed congratulations on blue cardstock and cut it into a strip.

Next, I added foam tape, strips and squares to everything! You know how I like dimension. For assembly, I adhered a green panel to a white card base with liquid glue, then popped the stenciled panel in place. Next, I added the yellow frame and the bib, then my sentiment below.

To finish things off I added black glaze pen to the bear’s eyes and glossy accents to his nose. Then I came in with some acrylic bubbles from my stash and glued them across the design.

I’m so happy with how this fun card turned out! Baby and sympathy cards are not my forte so I tend to only make them when they are needed. It helps to have motivation and a recipient in mind for me.
