Special Delivery… Little Stinker Tag for Baby Gift

Hello, sweet peeps! I hope you are all staying well in these crazy times!

I was finally able to finish up another post that was sitting in my drafts from last year for you… this cute little tag for a baby gift:

It goes just perf with those cute little stinker baby socks from Hobby Lobby! Doesn’t that sweet little baby boy blue bunny from the Dollar Tree look just darling wearing them?!

By carefully cutting apart the stamp, I was able to get it to say “your little stinker” instead of HB “you little stinker.” I folded it above the tail and kept the top part of the die off the edge of the second cutting plate when I die cut it…. That left room for the fold to hold it together and to punch a small hole to use it as a tag. I colored and cut out the paws and glued them over the sign once I’d stamped the “Special Delivery” sentiment, covering where it overlapped the paws and adding dimension, too.

Materials used:

  • Neat & Tangled Little Stinker stamp and die sets
  • Neat & Tangled Sweet Treats Sentiments
  • 150# white cardstock
  • Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black ink
  • Copic Markers: B21, C3,5,7; R10; RV 24, 63
  • Gelly Roll pen white 08

Stay safe and enjoy the rest of your day! Thanks so much for stopping by!!

A Special Girl Feeding Her Beloved Giraffe – Baby Card

Have you recuperated from your safari yet? : ) I needed a baby card and wanted to use the darling Petite Pinafore dress die and decided to put the Wild Thing stamp on, but I added some Romaine lettuce leaves to have the girl feeding the giraffe! (If you’re wondering why, see my last post HERE to find out!) You don’t have to have hearts to know that love is in the air with this darling duo! (SSS Monday Challenge)

So darling! With The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge going I, I thought I’d experiment with ‘no line’ coloring. The SSS Barely Beige ink I stamped in was so light I could barely see to color it! I even stamped it twice. (if you look close you can see the lines from using too much pressure under the feet… they totally disappeared in the coloring, too!)

Once I outlined each part in its corresponding color, It gave me a little more freedom and I got a more natural look with the Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils.

I added some of the cutout flowers to her shoes, then covered them in Glossy accents to give them a patent leather look.

I put the pretty white layer on the inside and left it plain for writing a message.

Waltzingmouse April PJ Party – Challenge No. 2 – Gift Card It

I love Matryoshka dolls – those amazing Russian stacking dolls. I thought the baby one inside the mother was perf for a baby shower card. The double pun of the sentiment in this case makes me giggle… The baby inside the expectant mother, and the gift card hidden inside the pocket… they ARE what counts! lol!

Waltzingmouse April PJ Party – Challenge No. 1 – Shower with Gifts

Waltzingmouse April PJ Party – Challenge No. 1 – Shower with Gifts


Today’s whim is to join Waltzingmouse Stamps April PJ Party. It started across the pond at 11:45pm their time, 6:45pm here in the former colonies aka USA.

For Challenge No 1 – Shower with Gifts, I chose to make a gift tag for a baby gift:

I had fun stamping the smallest dolls around the flower twice, then fussy cutting them and shaping them to look like a flower. I think it’s cute that the background paper says ‘stop crying’ (just to the right of the flower)! ; )

Stamps used: Waltzingmouse Stamps: You’re a Doll; Afternoon Tea (part of sentiment)

Hope you enjoyed this cute little tag.
