Punches Three/ Hip Hop Accessories
I absolutely love making baby cards. There is nothing more exciting than a new little baby...I know my little boy has brought so much joy to our family and I just get so excited about a new little one!
I needed to make a card for a friend who recently had a little baby boy and wanted to use the new hostess stamp set Punches Three with the matching Oval Punch. I find stamp sets that match punches so fun to use. I know that with Stampin' Up! it seemed to start with the Tag Punch and now there are so many punches with matching stamp sets that there is something for everyone's style.
When making a card, I like to try to stamp the envelope as well. I don't always do so, but when time permits I sure try. For this envelope, I used the stamp set Hip Hop Accessories by Gina K. Designs as well as the Whimsical letter stamp sets from Stampin' Up. It just makes it all of the more personal to have the name stamped of the new little bundle of joy. Whimsical Upper and Lower it my absolute favorite letter set and I use it all of the time. I find it perfect for baby cards, birthday cards and even scrapbooking because it is whimsical in style and doesn't have to be completely straight which is good for me! :o)
Have a great day!
