Simply Baby

[My stop on the Dude Time Doodles New Release Blog Leap is HERE]

I'm having the best time making my projects for Crafty Ribbons' Challenge #27 (thank you!), and although I can't reveal the ribbony-goodness yet, I wanted to make a simple card with my "scraps" from one of those cards. This card includes some of their super-fun Baby Washing ribbon:


The blue striped fabric is from an actual shirt; my sister-in-law gave it to us for our first dog, Walt, and I've never been able to part with his puppy clothes. My SIL owns Walt's parents, so I'm pretty sure that this shirt was his father's first. I'm not planning on having any more canine babies, and I'm sure she'll agree this is a good use of a precious item! I also used it to make the tag, which I stamped with part of a Lili of the Valley sentiment.

I'm having so fun using fabric now that I've learned the trick: run a piece of cardstock through a sticker machine and adhere the fabric onto the sticky side. This makes it easy to work with; I cut both of these circles with a Spellbinders die in my Big Shot.

I heat-embossed the main sentiment in baby blue, using a Katie & Co./Studio G rubber stamp. I colored in the the letters with a white SU! colored pencil. Of course, the star of this card are the mini safety pins from Creative Impressions, which I just got today!
