CTC#37 Baby

Having completely deleted by original post by accident this may be short!!

Welcome to the bloghop for this week. There are so many great design ideas in the baby section and it's great to see what all the other designers have come up with.  You will have come from Monique's beautiful card using the same stamps. Be sure to check out their creations. If you get lost along the way you can find a complete list at CASEing the Catty here.

I have been inspired by the packaging bag on page 35,  but have turned it into a card. I have been waiting for a set like this to come out and I'm so glad SU have created this as I am regularly asked for Baptism/ Christening cards. They are quite hard to make but this set makes it really easy.

I have created both a baby boy (Marina Mist) and a baby girl (Pink Pirouette) version. The crystal buttons really set them off I think.
I am also SO happy because Stampin' Up! have finally released a thick white cardstock which is perfect for making white cards. The Whisper White is beautiful and smooth to stamp on but hasn't, in my opinion, got enough oomph to be a good card base. This new cardstock is fabulous, and I  think I will now be making a lot more white cards. Hooray!
Can I 'do' clean and simple - well that is a challenge!

The scoring plate is fabulous for adding simple straight texture embossing. Elegant and understated
Starburst heat embossed with clear powder and sponging and stamping over the top.

thanks for looking, be sure to check out the talented Rebecca here,
