Creation Station Blog Tour – Something for Baby

Posted on

creation station header

Ahh… Sunday, always a good day! Welcome to the 3rd Creation Station Blog Tour! I’m hoping that you have been along for the previous tours and if so welcome back! If this is your first time with us then welcome! If you are following the Tour you have arrived here from the very clever Deborah Smart. Those were some great projects, right?! I hope that I can give you some ideas on how to use our featured stamp set Something for Baby and accessory the Hamburger Box Die. The post has lots of pictures that I have taken during the process of making the projects so sit back relax and enjoy!

First up is a fun card/tag/pocket! It can be any or all of the previously mentioned! You’ll see what I mean in a minute. I started off with some Crisp Cantaloupe Card Stock that I cut to 6 1/2″ x 4″. I used my Simply Scored to score the card stock on the long side at 1 1/2″ and 4 1/2″.

I ran some Sticky Strip down the flap after folding it and adhered it together to form a pocket. A Tea Lace Paper Doily is adhered to the front and around the back with SNAIL. Next I used my 3/4″ Circle Punch to notch out the top.

All of the stamped images are form the Something For Baby Stamp Set and are stamped in Pistachio Pudding, So Saffron and Baked Brown Sugar. I used the Baby’s First Framelits to cut them out and they are adhered with Multi-Purpose Glue to the pocket.

The piece of Whisper White that I slipped inside is cut out with the Banners Framelits and a small hole is punched in the top.

I made a reinforcement for the hole and the threaded some Crisp Cantaloupe Thick Bakers Twine through and tied it in a knot. The greetings on the onesie and the tag are from the Something To Say Stamp Set and are stamped in Baked Brown Sugar. A Mini Glue Dot in the center at the bottom of the pocket keeps the tag from going all the way through. It was a really fun card to make and I love the colors together!

Up next is a coordinating box that you could use for favors or to give a little gift to someone. I made the box using the Hamburger Bigz XL Die and some Crisp Cantaloupe Card Stock. My fellow blog tour mate Jen Arkfeld has a great video on how to make it easier to put the box together, you can check that out HERE. Before I assembled my box I cut a circle out of the top of it with the Circles Collection Framelits.

A piece of Window Sheet is cut to cover the hole and I used Opaque White Staz-On to stamp the Sentiment from the Baby, We’ve Grown Stamp Set.

After I assembled the box I used a greeting from the Something For Baby Stamp Set, stamped in So Saffron and cut out with the Baby’s First Framelits. A piece of Pistachio Pudding that I cut out with the Delicate Doilies Large Sizzlit goes behind it for a little decoration on the front. I’m loving the Hamburger Box Die and the cut out in the top gives it a little extra interest don’t you think?!

My last project is a card. I love when you can use a set that is specific for one thing for something completely different. The card starts off with a base of Coastal Cabana Card Stock and the background is a piece of Maritime Designer Series Paper. I cut out a piece of Real Red with the Starburst Framelits and then embossed it with the Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

The tag is created with the Angled Tag Topper Punch and I stamped my greeting from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set in Real Red across the bottom. My ties are from the Something For Baby Stamp Set and are stamped in Coastal Cabana, Real Red and Night of Navy. The Baby’s First Framelits cut them out and some Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere them to the tag.
