Baby Cards Blowout . . . featuring Baby Button Bits

Happy Thursday . . . sorry if that title sicked you out . . . as I thought about it, using baby and blowout in the same sentence never brings to mind good things (Ew!)  I think I have been a mom too long . . .  but anyway . . . 

Today I decided to post a few of the baby cards I have made recently.  I have decided that the cards I use most often are baby, birthday and thank you - so I plan to make most of my cards fall into these categories if possible.  Practical eh?  Yeah, that is me lately!


This first card was made with a set called "Baby Button Bits" (Papertrey Ink).(well, okay, all the cards I did for this post are)  It has been around awhile.  It was designed to work with buttons perfectly and I adore it!!!  I thought the black and yellow "bee" colors would be cute and the sentiment really makes it a baby card.  Sometimes I like to go back and work with some of the sketches I never had time to get to on the Mojo Monday blog . . . and this is one of them!  It's an awesome site to find layout ideas!  If you have never checked it out, GO!  You'll love it!

This second card kind of goes a little overboard on the pink, but hey, when else can you get away with that?  If someone's having a baby girl, generally they are darn excited to see that much pink! *grins*  I used MOJO175 sketch for that card.  

Last but not least, I made this lovely card using the same stamp set, and using a patchwork technique challenge from Splitcoaststampers.  I really LOVE the look of patchwork and I love that it uses up scraps in your scrap drawers (I have 4 drawers of scraps, so really, I *need* to use this WAY more often).  This card again features non traditional baby colors, but is all baby!  I am almost sad that I will have to give it away one day -- I really like it!  It also uses that gorgeous bakers twine that is oh so trendy right now in paper crafting!  Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you have a wonderful day and have some time to get inkspired!
