Babies and weddings, they seem to come all at once, don't they? There've been a whole bunch of new little people welcomed into the world lately, and I've got a whole bunch of baby cards to show you. How perfect that Little Red Wagon is having an "Oh, Baby" themed challenge this week!

Supplies: papers & elements from Echo Park; Timeless Twine; AC Thickers letter stickers; home made enamel dots; Corner Chomper

The banners & 'little man' element were part of a piece of patterned paper, fussy cut to add some dimension. 

Supplies: sentiment from PTI; Memento Gray Flannel ink; die cut train border from K &Co

Supplies: Papers from Doodlebug; stickers from Basic Grey; classic small circle Nesties
I'm particularly excited about this card, because the circle cut out was a piece of scrap paper & I made it into an "on purpose" element. Yay!

Supplies: Baby Love sticker from Basic Grey; papers from MME; Corner Chomper; classic small and lacy circle Nesties; Crochet Mat (available here)
Another scrap card - the striped piece of paper is missing a corner, and I just arranged my layout around it :) 

Supplies: stamps from PTI; Spiced Marmalade distress ink; classic small circle Nesties; buttons from stash

You surely know by now that any time I go on a baby card binge, there are gonna be buttons :)

Ahhhh! I'm getting all mushy and saying lots of awwwwwws! These are all just so adorable I feel like I have to go find someone's cheeks that I can pinch.

I really like the crochet mat idea! I could probably crochet something like that myself. But my favorite is the first. It's just SOOOO sweet and bold at the same time.

I love baby cards and never make need lately - plus it'd have to be for grand babies too!
Love all of these Jessi. My favorite is that little train. Precious.

There are all so fabulous! I find baby cards right up there with sympathy cards in the tough-to-make category, but you are a pro!

Sw-eet baby cards!!! Love how each one is so different!! ( i tend to use whats on my desk or close by so some cards have similar items)

Joanne said...

Wow, Jessi! Your cards are simply beautiful! I can't really pick a favorite. Thanks for joining us at Little Red Wagon :)

What a fun collection of baby cards! I rarely make them anymore unless I have requests for them, but I love all those sewn-on buttons on the last card! Ca-UTE!

Greta said...

Wow--you were on a roll! What a wonderful group of cards, Jessi! I really love the first one & the one with buttons--great designs!

Holy cow! You know a lot of breeders.... them's a lot of baby cards. They are all so sweet though. I like the non-traditional colors of the first one and that train! *sigh*
