Bundle of Boy Joy


It's Subtly Yours week at Dynamic Duos and we are to use Pool Party and Soft Suede on our creations.  I immediately thought "baby boy" when I saw these colours and so pulled out Baby Basics from Market Street Stamps (designed by Julie Day).  I paper pieced this cute little teddy and made a border for him to sit on using the "Boy" blocks and a Fiskars punch.  I thought it needed a little something else so I gave my bear a little banner to wave as well.  :)

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Pool Party, Soft Suede) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (All from Baby Basics) Market Street Stamps
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black)  Tsukineko, (Soft Suede) Stampin' Up
Punch:  (Threading Water) Fiskars

This is adorable -your paper piecing is perfect! (and I would be proud to partake of your pecan pie - hope you get the reference from my alliteration to When Harry Met Sally - if not, just write me off as a crazy nut! lol!)

I had to laugh at Ardyth's comment :) I remember that!
The banner was the perfect little something! Love the bear's colours - and how he looks like he's waiting for a big hug!

Totally cute! Love the retro colours. And I am happy to see you added to the PC Designer Blog Roll as Wills, not Willis. :P

Your hues of the blues and browns are absolutely perfect for a little boy. Such a cute card!

Congratulations, Jen, for the Dynamic Darling shoutout for your adorable baby card!!

Great card! I would have immediately skipped a blue and brown challenge, but you totally rocked it, especially with the border and sweet little pennant. :) And a DT picked it, too! Not surprising.
