Baby, Baby!!...

Hello everyone: Well, it's time for a new Retro Rubber  challenge and this one is super fun because it's ANYTHING GOES!! This really allows you to get your Mojo going, your creative juices flowing and let your imagination take over.  I haven't made a Baby card lately but I like to have some at hand for those awesome times when someone announces they are having a little baby, I made it in neutral colors, most times the parents to be don't want to know if there is a girl or a boy on the way.


This images are from a retired Flourishes stamp set called "Hello Baby" and it's cute as can be. I stamped the little onesie and booties onto Canson water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored them with SU markers and the aqua painter using Pistachio Pudding SU ink, then I fussy cut them and placed them on the panel with foam dimentionals. The pattern paper is from Lili of the Valley and the sweet rocking horse trim is from my stash, I couldn't believe the color was an almost spot on match.  I stamped a piece of Vellum with one of the stamps on this set with gray ink and the sentiment with the same Pistachio Pudding ink.  The bow is from a ball of yarn that it's just so soft and airy, I used a button brad to hold the loops and two smaller ones for the booties. 
Here is a picture of the finished inside.


I just love this sentiment from another Baby set by Flourishes.
Here is the banner that inspired my card.

And the picture of the stamp sets I used to create my card.
This set, "Baby Love" was released in 2009.


This one, called "Hello Baby" was released in 2012.


Thank you for stopping by, I hope you give this challenge a try, we would love to see your creations in the gallery. 
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

    1. Thanks for stopping by Darnell, this set is beautiful but it's the verse that caught my eye because I also remember it from when my daughters were born.

    1. How great you shared your card with us Anita, it's indeed hard to try to find out when the stamps were first released but, if you had them more than a year, it's totally ok.
      Thank you for stopping by.

  9. Hey Maria, thanks for your comments on my card - to answer your question, the words behind the shaker, were stuck down. Because I make shaker pouches before I have a card, there are generally only shaker mix in them. Your card is adorable, I love making baby cards. I need a onesie stamp..Cx

    1. Thank you Claire, how clever that you make the shakers before the card, I bet that saves you a lot of time.

  12. So sweet and adorable! I see people making baby cards and never make them myself. Because I have no one to give them to. Until a friend of mine had two daughters give birth two days apart - one had a boy and one had a girl. So I need to get busy! Beautifully done!
