Little Sunshine to welcome some babies!

Baby cards are such fun to make aren't they?! I've been having a go with Stampin' Up's Little Sunshine stamp set - come and see what I came up with:

One for a boy, one for a girl! Well, sometimes you just don't know if it's going to be a boy or a girl - I know I always wanted it to be a surprise when I was having my lovely babies!

Crisp Cantaloupe and white with touches of gold is a perfect colour combo to celebrate the birth of a baby girl. I love this speech bubble sentiment and it looks really special in gold! As well as the Sweet Dreams washi tape and buttons which coordinate with the stamp set, I added some Stacked with Love washi, which has gold hearts on it, and a pretty flower from the trim in the Artisan Embellishment Kit on page 27 of the spring/summer catalogue.

For my boy card I decided to focus on the 'little addition' sentiment with the +1 - I can't get over how cute these are! I punched a circle in the Soft Sky panel and stamped the +1 into it with Lost Lagoon ink. Below the sentiment, I added one of the 'stitched' Sweet Dreams buttons on a piece of washi and as a finishing touch, echoed the stitched detail with my white gel pen on the number 1.

We don't have any babies in our family at the moment so I have to live on my memories of when my own hulking great teens were dots! They were all early talkers and I always melt when I think of their first efforts at conversation. Like my eldest son turning his huge blue eyes on me when his father left for work one morning and saying: "Daddy gone?" And like my youngest son who after many bedtimes with me telling him that mummy loved him very much, got in before me one night. "Mummy much!" he said. Ahhhhhhhh!

It's Artisan blog hop day tomorrow and the team has pulling out all the stops to inspire you so I hope you can join me then!


  1. Beautiful cards, Vicky.

    Aren't babies first words so precious! My son's first word was "eat" - and to this day if he goes out anywhere the first thing he does is check out the eating places. And him like "'twa ply o reek" - Scots tongue for "two very thin sheets of smoke".


  2. Adorable cards and precious, precious memories xxx

  3. Both fabulous cards, but have to admit to loving the boy card, with the +1.
