Baby Card Duo


Here's a set of baby cards for our Papertrey Paper Dolls challenge 33

Leish asked us to make a baby boy and girl card with a similar layout.  I don't own any PTI baby themed sets but I have a few sets that have one or two baby images.  I pulled out Just the Ticket.  I'm ashamed to say that this is the first time I've inked this up.   I got this set right after CHA as a gift from LeAnn (sillyleann).  It's so cute.  Why don't I use it?




I kept the layout pretty simple.  I used a Mat Stack 2 die cut under the ticket strip to highlight the sentiment.  The Book Print Impression Plate used on the yellow panel is my favorite part.  Hope you play along with our Paper Dolls challenge!




All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless stated

Stamps:  Just the Ticket, Everyday Classics (yellow dotted oval)
Paper:  white, spring rain / sweet blush, 2008 bitty dot basics pp
Ink:  Summer Sky (memento), Indian Corn Blue (CTMH), Buttercup (CTMH), Berry Sorbet, Sweet Blush
Accessories:  Just the Ticket die, Book Print impression plate, Mat Stack 2 die, button brads (making memories)

Adorable, Sara!! I love the impressed backgound with the bitty dots paper, and the way you layered the tickets with the mat stack is so cool!

Sara, these are adorable! The impression plate makes the yellow dotted paper look quilted, a great effect! And Mat Stack 2 is perfect under the tickets too!

These so scream "baby" to me! They're adorable! I love the simple layout. You placed the buttons perfectly! Just the Ticket is an awesome stamp set. I'm so glad you finally got to ink it up. Great job on the challenge.

What a cute idea to use that impression plate on a baby card, and on patterned paper at that! Slipping that one into my idea file. Gorgeous set!

EEK!! I love love love this. I have eyed up that bookprint IP but avoided putting it in my cart... this is NOT HELPING. Just the Ticket is soooo cute here. I too have it and it doesn't see much ink. I love how you combined it with the Mat stack, this is just all so super cute!

These are so, so darling! I love the polka dot paper with the blue and pink. Both are just adorable! You did great for not having any "baby" stamps!
