Little Boys


Ronnie, my dear friend from university, and his wife have just had their first child - a bouncing, baby boy!  I wanted to send them a little card to welcome him and I thought this week's ColourQ colours would be perfect for it.  I pulled out Papertrey Ink's Hanging Out dies and stamps and some Pebbles patterned paper and went to work.  I often make clothing lines with this set but this time I decided to pop up a panel with the die cuts on it and lay the papers underneath.  It fits in with the negative die cut challenges running at both A Passion for Papertey and the Moxie Fab World so I'm going to link it up.  Hope your week is off to a great start!


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Midnight Muse) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper:  (Family Ties collection) Pebbles
Stamps:  (Sentiment from Hanging Out) Papertrey Ink
Ink:  (VersaMark)  Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Seafoam White)  Ranger
Dies:  (Hanging Out) Papertrey Ink
Punch:  (Corner rounder) Marvy Uchida
Gems:  (Mini Pearls) Doodlebug

I LOVE that sentiment! You always see 'thank heaven for little girls' but quite frankly, seeing what my friends with girls are going through as puberty hits...I am thankful once again for having boys :D
Love the bitty patterns peeking through the baby clothes! This is awesome :)

These are great dies to use this way.... The patterned papers are so sweet behind the apertures and love the simple embellishments too :0)
