Thanks to a great tip by Florida demonstrator Linda Heller, Miss pregnant girlfriend here is stylin' with her dress. It's the same Au Chocolate DS paper as across the bottom, but it's brayered with certainly celery classic ink to match the card. How cool is that?
Paper piecing is fun. Just stamp your image onto the card stock you are using (here I am using shimmery white), then stamp her again onto the designer paper. Cut out the portion on the paper that you want to use ( the dress), and glue it on your image!
I used Stampin'Up!'s Stampin'Write Markers to color her and white craft ink in the jumbo wheel Petals for the background. The little flower in her hair is from a tiny punch from Target... actually on this card it's a combination of two little mini flowers. The one on the top is a punch sent to me by my friend Heather (thanks babe) along with the little pink crystal in the middle. The rick-rac is from Cindy (Starlitstudios). The pink strip under the ribbon is a piece of card stock with those layered flowers again plus certainly celery brads. The main image is punched out with a Giga Scallop punch from Mary Uchida. I punched another piece out of chocolate chip card stock to give it a shadow. The "you grow girl" is a combination of a dollar stamp from Michaels send to me by my friend Val from Cal, and the stamp that comes in the set Swell News from SU!. The celery grosgrain at the bottom is from Stampin'Up! The slit punch on the bottom right holds the flap closed.
This one is very similar to the one above. The celery part is ran through the Cuddlebug with the new circle embossing folder stamped first with "happy waiting". On this card, I used the new Round Tab Punch on the side attached with certainly celery brads. The card is trimmed about 1 inch off the side so you can grab the tab to open. :) The ribbon on the side is both May Arts (the brown polka-dot) and chocolate grosgrain from Stampin'Up! She is just sooo cute in that celery dress... don't ya think?
One more... this one was a mistake... I cut too much off the front of the card, but wanted to save it, so I added the flowers. This is exactly like the one above except for the embossing folder and the flowers. I love it when I mess up and then end up liking my mistake.
Okay... this is all I got done today in between running my daughter to pre-school and one of my twins to the Dr. Poor Jayce has strep throat and has to stay home one more day (torture for him, he loves school). So,I probably won't get much done tomorrow either. I THINK this covers all the pregnant chicks I know for now. Oh...I can't wait for those new babies to arrive.
Have a super day.... thanks for stopping by!! ~Cambria
