It's a Girl!

The big news I said I would share with you today isn't that I'm having a baby girl! Let's get that notion cleared up right away before rumors fly and I start receiving congratulations cards and baby booties! ;)

This post is called 'It's a Girl' because that's the sentiment on my first card share for today.

This extremely adorable baby girl dress is a Bella Blvd./Unity stamp that I thought would be fun to color with Copic markers and hand stitch. I love the way it turned out! But how could you go wrong with such an adorable image to start with?!?!

I thought I was going to have to run out and buy a gray stamp pad because I didn't want to use black with these pretty Baby Girl papers. So you know what I did instead? I used my black stamp pad and stamped it once on a piece of scratch paper and then a second time on my card stock. It's the perfect gray, wouldn't you say? And a way to save a few coins! ;)

The colorful twine is from Doodlebug Design and the scalloped oval frame was created with Spellbinders dies. A pretty simple card to make and lots of fun to color and stitch!

For my 'Welcome' card I used the same double stamp technique as the first one. I also colored in the little hearts on this cute ultrasound image with a soft pink Copic marker and then outlined the hearts with stitching. This card was made with both the Bella Blvd. Baby Girl collection and We're Expecting line.

So, do you want to hear what my big news is now? I made the Love My Tapes design team! Woot! I'm so excited to have the opportunity to create some fun and hopefully inspiring projects for you! Did you know that Love My Tapes not only sells awesome washi tape but also fabric tape, lace tape and self adhesive fabric sheets? Oh the ideas are swimming around in my head! ;)

Here's what the lace tape looks like...basically it's pretty lace with a self adhesive backing.

Here's the fabric tape. Not only does it come in this fun stripe pattern, there's also floral prints, polka dots and checks!

Stay tuned...I hope to have some fun Love My Tapes projects to share with you real soon! I can't wait to get started!

Thanks for stopping in today and sharing in my news!
