These handmade cards for new baby are ultra adorable thanks to the Over the Moon stamp set, gingham DSP and a few swipes of your Stampin’ Blends. Have you ordered your Blends yet?
Here’s why I love them. Plus,
- no-brainer colour coordination 🙃
- seamless colour blending
- fabulously fun to create sweet cards like these!
Are they not the cutest way to share your good wishes for a new bundle of love?
I’ve held off this long featuring the Over the Moon stamps. But I finally broke down and you’ll get to see these A-DOR-able bovines all week, along with my Stampin’ Blends.
Handmade Cards for New Baby
My trio of designs was economical to whip up with some colour assortments from the Annual catalogue. Subtles 8 1/2″ x 11″ cardstock, and the 6″ x 6″ Subtles DSP.
Added to Thick Whisper White, my Tuxedo Black Memento ink pad and my Stitched Shapes dies, I wanted you to see how you can change up the look of your cards just with different layouts.
For Baby Girl
Blushing Bride is ideal for a new little gal. And gingham is always a perfect choice. “baby” comes from the Well Written dies which has tons of versatility for so many events.
My blends colours are Ivory for the nose and Crumb Cake combo for her spots plus a tinge of Light Flirty Flamingo for the udder and ears seeing we don’t currently have a Blushing Bride Blends.
For variety the stamped circle is not centred but over to the left.
I also coloured my Whisper White baker’s twine with my Flirty Flamingo Blends just like I did the other day on this card. It’s a great way to have matching colours in your ribbon and twine! I couldn’t resist adding it to her tail!
A touch of Wink of Stella on her spots makes them sparkle.
For Baby Boy
A new little fella is welcomed with this fun card. Even though the placement is basically the same, there are some different elements:
- square image with matted piece of Balmy Blue
- a slightly larger piece of gingham dsp
- Whisper White polka dot tulle ribbon wrapped and knotted
- baby shadowed with a white die so it stands out
A Boy or a Girl (Maybe?)
So Saffron is a middle of the road colour for new babies – just like green. So what do you think? Does the flower scream baby girl to you?
Again a couple changes here:
- a softer oval shape matted with one size large stitched shape die
- the baby die in white so it shows up well on the yellow gingham
- Whisper White polka dot tulle ribbon wrapped and tied off to the left in a bow
I love how soft the Blends can be. And when you leave lots of white showing, these colours stand out, even though they are pastel.
Now It’s Your Turn!
If you’ve been holding off on adding Blends to your toolkit, thinking they’re just going to sit on your shelf, I encourage you to give a few a try. Start with a few colours that appeal to you. Here are my suggestions for combos so you can give these a try.
A yellow, blue, green, pink and brown plus the Color Lifter and the Ivory and Bronze would be my first choices if I was starting to build my collection.
