Something New Blog Hop

 Hello my friends! You are receiving this extra post from me today because I have joined a Blog Hop that my friend Angie McKenzie organized. If you click on all of the participating links at the bottom you will see lots of amazing ideas. 

The theme for this Blog Hop is Something New. I used a new stamp from the January to June catalogue called Baby Pull Toys. My card is also something new as it is a welcome baby card for a friend whose daughter is having a new baby. This will be their second daughter and the girls will be 13 months apart.

I decided to do a slimline card because I wanted to use all three images in the stamp set and it would have been too tight on a regular A2 card. I stamped the three pull toy images (giraffe, elephant and lion) onto some Shimmery White cardstock using Black Staz On ink. I cut them out individually using a stitched circle die from the Stitched Shapes Dies set. I coloured the images using my watercolour pencils and a Blender pen. I matted the finished images onto a scalloped circle that I cut from Blushing Bride cardstock using the Layering Circles Dies set. 

I used the heart stamp from the set to randomly stamp all over a piece of Whisper White cardstock using Blushing Bride ink. I matted this piece onto a piece of Basic Gray cardstock. I then wrapped a piece of Blushing Bride Metallic Ribbon around these two pieces and secured it at the back. I attached the pull toy images on top of this using dimensionals. I was hoping it would look like the toys were sitting on top of the ribbon. I then added this to a Whisper White Thick card base using dimensionals.

I also used the Blushing Bride Metallic ribbon to tie a small bow which I attached to the card front using glue dots.

I stamped the sentiment using Black Staz On ink on a scrap of Shimmery White cardstock. I cut this out by using a die from the Ornate Frames Dies set. I cut the outer mat using the die on some Basic Gray cardstock. I set the die over top of the sentiment and traced the inside of the die using a pencil. I then used my paper snips to cut it out. I layered this on top of the Basic Gray piece and attached it to the card front using dimensionals.
