Control Freaks are Celebrating Little Birthdays!
The Control Freaks have something sweet for you this month....Little Birthdays! Whether it's for a little boy, a little girl, or even a baby's first birthday, we have some adorable projects to celebrate the occasion! If you started at the beginning, that was with the lovely and talented Kelly Acheson over at A Stamp Above. I am number two on the list, and there are only five of us this month, so it's going to be a quick hop.
I have to tell you, I was a bit stumped at first about what I could make, because I don't really have any kid-themed sets in my stash. Flowers? Oh, you betcha! But kiddie things? Not so much. Then I remembered that I did have the new Fable Friends cling stamp set that I had gotten for Spring and Easter, and wouldn't you know it....and there was an adorable bunny that would be perfect for a little kid card!
So, I went to work and came up with a boy AND a girl card! Seriously, is this not the cutest bunny rabbit you've ever seen? It looks so earnest, like it's asking for something so sweetly....pretty please?
I used Balmy Blue Gingham Gala DSP (back in stock!) for the boy card, backing it with Night of Navy mats, and showing both the large and small gingham print. I thought the background needed a little texture, so it was embossed with the Subtle Dynamic TIEF. The greeting (on both cards) is from Itty Bitty Birthdays.
The bunny's shirt was colored with light and dark Balmy Blue Stampin' Blends, the bunny with Crumb Cake light and dark and just a touch of light Flirty Flamingo was added to his ears. He was cut out with the largest Stitched Shapes oval, and some Night of Navy was sponged to make the oval pop a bit.
The sweet little girl birthday card is next. I thought for this one the rabbit needed to be white to really show off her rosy cheeks. *smile* She was colored with Flirty Flamingo light and dark Stampin' Blends, and then cut with a Rectangle Stitched Framelit and adhered to a Flirty Flamingo mat.
This card needed some feminine frills, and what better way to add some than the doily in the Doily Builder Thinlits? I cut two white ones and adhered them to the Powder Pink card base, then added a strip of Flirty Flamingo DSP to cover the overlap.
The tiny flowers in the Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins added a bit more sweetness, don't you think?
Thank you for stopping by today! Up next is Melissa Stout, aka The Stamp Doc. I can't wait to see what she made!
