You might know that I'm expecting my first grandchild soon. Little Sagan Hewins Raeford is due on April 27th. The showers have begun! We had one this past Sunday and I am getting so excited! I've waited a long time for this!
Of course my daughter Jessie wants handmade Thank You notes, and of course I am more than willing to make them. We chose to use that cute little bunny from Stampin' Up!'s Sweet Little Bunny stamp set.
Here is our card. We are using the Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes. I've said it before. These are one of the best bargains in the catalog. You get 20 cards and envelopes for $6 in the USA. Grays seemed like the logical choice since Sagan's nursery is painted a light gray.
For me, the Stamperatus is a must for this bunny. It's a three stamp process, but they must be matched exactly. I would use scrap paper for stamping until you get everything placed correctly. But after you get it placed, it's a snap to stamp them quickly. It does not matter which order you stamp them, but I do think it's easier to start with the darkest when trying to place them on the Stamperatus. I used Smoky Slate for the largest plain stamp, Basic Gray for the next one with some detail, and Memento Black for the most detailed and smallest stamp. I did stamp the black two times, but maybe that was my pad.
The words for the front of the card are from the All Things Thanks stamp set. Stamp in Basic Gray. I also set this up on the Stamperatus. I used all four plates for this card!
The bow is from the Bouquet Bunch Framelits. I used Powder Pink. For most of the cards I trimed the ends of the bow a little and added it to her hair. The little heart is punched with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.
I made about 50 of these. I think they are so cute.
After going to the time to set up the bunny, I just couldn't stop. Here's the card I made for her gift.
Start with a card base of Thick Whisper White 5 1/2 z 8 1/2 and scored and folded at 4 1/4.
I used the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack. Cut a piece of the Powder Pink 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. Cover the front of the card.
Using the Stamperatus stamp the New Baby from the Milestone Moments stamp set in Basic Gray. This is called Hinge Stamping.
The bunny was stamped on Whisper White card stock and cut out with snips. Adhere with dimensionals. Add a Powder Pink bow from the Bouquet Bunch Framelits.
Using the Balloon Bouquet Punch, punch the largest balloon. Stamp Hello Baby with the Moon Baby stamp set in Basic Gray. Attach with dimensionals. The twine I used is retired Basic Gray.
Here's a pictue of two very proud and very excited grandmothers to be with my beautiful daughter.
And here is Jessie with one of her gifts. I just couldn't resist!
I have another card using the Sweet Little Something bunny. You can go here if you missed it. Thanks for checking out my blog today. I appreciate it. I'll keep you posted on our little miracle coming soon!
