Spring Babies

Springtime means least in the animal kingdom, right?  I'm hoping that the neighborhood feral cat (Dodger's momma) is not preggers again...but I think she is...

Spring is often the time for human babies as well.  I know several people who have either just given birth or just found out that they are having a baby. 

My friend Suzette and her husband welcomed daughter Alaina into the world last week.  I made this card for her baby shower.  Since I knew she was expecting a girl, I used a sweet confection color palette with a vintage flair.

Paper:  Stampin' Up! cardstock, scrap stripe pattern paper
Inks:  Vintage Photo Distress Ink
Images:  Vintage baby carriage image from K & Company Ephemera Pack Other:  Old Paper Distress Stickles, ribbon, Tim Holtz Trinket Pin, assorted glass beads, silver headpins, needlenose pliers, scallop decorative scissors, foam tape, adhesive

The Details:
  • I love how the glass beads on the trinket ring add that little something special and unexpected to this card.  Since I was hand-delivering this card, I could really go all out with the embellishments.
  • The other "something special" is the touch of Old Paper Distress Stickles.  I LOVE Old Paper Distress Stickles!!!!  I am on my second bottle.  They are the perfect color to add that tarnished silver hue of true antique glitter to your projects.


  1. VERY sweet card!! I've never seen either of the Tim Holtz trinket pins OR the Old Paper Distress Stickles, harumphf! Now I know what's next on my "to buy" list!! Thank you (I think)... no actually, thank you!! I make card pins and these trinket pins would be a nice addition to my "line."
