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.

  3. Oh my Justin – you have been one busy guy! Absolutely love them all today, especially the Father’s Day card and the box and the baby card/tag/pocket – uh, I guess that’s all of them. I couldn’t pick one over the other! LOL You have yourself a Super Sunday!

    • Thank you Grace! I have been very busy! There are also three more cards for the SplitCoast Creative Crew that were posted there this morning!

  4. Hi Justin! Great projects!! I love all three! I especially love the way you took a baby stamp set and made a Father’s Day card. You are always thinking out of the box. I have to try to do that myself. The colors in that card are great as well.

    • Hello Gerri!
      Thank you! It really is a fun set! I thought the ties would work well for a Father’s day card! Glad you enjoyed them all! Have a wonderful Sunday! 🙂

  5. Cute cards…,but how about the burger box with a window ! Great idea ….. Those multiple ties are cute ,but don`t you just love the tie for the little baby boys . Love all of your pictures …..well done ,Justin !

    • Thanks Sonny! I thought it would be fun to add a window to the burger box! Yes, the ties are cute for a baby boy too! So happy you enjoyed the post! Have a wonderful day! 🙂

  6. Justin I love all your cute projects, but the Father’s Day card is my favorite! You brilliantly thought out of the box by using the tie from a baby stamp set!

  7. Justin, love your projects. s for the tour many of the links from one blogger to the next do not work. I pulled your page back up and linked from there. Just wanted you to know.

  9. Hi Justin
    Started following your blog really love the idea of Creation Station Blog Tour of everyone using the same stamp set and showing the versatility of that set. Really loved this one and you made me see outside of the box . I loved something from each project GREAT IDEAS Thank you

    • Hello!
      I’m so happy to have you along! The Creation Station is a fun way to show you a bunch of different ideas! I am so happy that you enjoyed the projects!! 🙂

  10. Pingback: Creation Station Blog Tour #3! |

  11. Awesome projects as always, Justin! I love the addition of the cut-out in the Hamburger Die Box – that’s a keeper of an idea! 🙂

  12. Justin, You put so much time and effort into your blog, thank you so much for sharing your talents with us. Love, love, love the baby tag, and the burger boc with the acetate window… perfection

    • Linda,
      Thank you! It means so much to me that you recognize the effort! I appreciate you letting me know! I’m glad you enjoyed the projects and hope that you had a great Sunday! 🙂

  13. Super cute projects, Justin! Gosh I love the Father’s Day card–colors, texture, elements. I also really like the fun card/tag/pocket! I’m going to have to CASE that, for sure!

  14. I love seeing ways a set can be used for a variety of themes – great job with the father’s day concept with the little ties! Stamping on window sheets is fun and your little circle feature on the hamburger box is so pretty. Well done and thanks for sharing.

  15. Thanks so much for sharing such versatility in each card and “thinking outside of the box”. Love the window on the hamburger box and the cute tag slider card. Fun ideas to tuck away to CASE! 🙂

  16. This is so much fun! Love those blog tour. Great visual tutorial. Now you will have to do a similar one on fussy cutting LOL…

  17. Hi Justin. Really enjoyed your post and all the details about your projects. All three are amazing and cute. I’m especially inspired by the Baby Hamburger Window box. I really hadn’t any desire to get this die until I saw the box with a different look. The window makes it perfect for showing off little treats or gifts inside and I love the sentiment stamped on the window sheet. All in all such impressive projects. Thanks so much!

    • Hello Penny!
      Thank you very much! It’s a fun way to do the post and I’m glad that you enjoyed it! I thought the window in the top would be a fun and different take, happy that you liked that! Enjoy the rest of your day! 🙂
