Baby Shower Welcome

We're back this week with another cute, baby shower card. Lauren's baby shower was last month and some of the ladies from Stamp Fever created such beautiful cards, we wanted to show you!

Today's card is by Bette! She used pink designer paper and paper pieced a cute baby girl outfit! The sentiment is perfect, Welcome Baby! This is a great card that can be adapted for any gender (or neutral). We hope this gives you a little inspiration for your next baby shower!

Today's card is by Linda! She created this card by stamping a cute elephant, coloring him in and layered him with different colored pink paper. The ribbon bow was added and makes a perfect card for a baby girl.

We R Memory Keepers Punch Boards - Envelope

Today we have a final example of We R Memory Keepers' Punch Boards using the Envelope Punch Board. This is WRMK's first punch board and DT Member Lauren's favorite. Being able to create envelopes for almost any size is such an awesome tool!
For this small envelope, Lauren cut out a 5 x 5" piece of paper using Lawn Fawn's Peace Joy Love paper pad. She stamped the sentiment and hearts using Memento inks from Lawn Fawn's Science of Love stamp set. The hearts are attached using pop dots and then tied the envelope close using black baker's twine and some red May Arts Ribbon. A perfect Valentine's Day gift!
We hope you enjoyed seeing some ideas this week on how to use your WRMK's punch boards. Come to Stamp Fever to order yours!

We R Memory Keepers Punch Boards - Pillow Box

Today we have TWO examples of how you can use the We R Memory Keepers' Pillow Box Punch Board. First would be a perfect gift card holder or small gift box for Christmas. Lauren used kraft paper by Neenah to create this pillow box and decorated it with ribbon from May Arts and a tag she created. The tag is using Lady Bug Memento ink on a white Neenah paper using a stamp from the Merry Christmas set by Hero Arts + BasicGrey. She tied the tag on using some embroidering floss and added three pears. Santa's beard is also outlined using a shimmer pen.

This second pillow box shows how you can make all kinds of lengths using your Pillow Box Punch Board. The box was punched out of purple patterend paper and Lauren created a cute tag that is tied around the pillow box using purple baker's twine. The small tag is decorated with stamps from Paper Smooches Needle Little Love with the flowers and leaves colored in with alcohol ink markers.
Aren't these pillow boxes just the cutest?! Come to Stamp Fever today to order yours!

We R Memory Keepers Punch Boards - Candy Box

We R Memory Keepers' Punch Boards are so handy for birthdays and holidays to create custom envelopes and packaging. Today's project by Lauren is using the Candy Box Punch Board to create a thank you goodie box that can be used for a party or an event. She cut out her initial patterned paper to create the box at 7 x 7" using Lawn Fawn's Into The Woods Collection. Then decorated the box using orange baker's twine and stamped the Thank You sentiment from Lawn Fawn's Sophie's Sentiments on a small tag. The enamel dots are by Freckled Fawn.
Come to Stamp Fever to see how fun these candy boxes are and order yours today!

Vintage Inspired Christmas Card

DT Member Bette made this gorgeous Christmas card using vintage inspired images from Melissa Frances. She also used Jillian Vance Design stamps. We just love the layering!

Bette used one of the papers from the Melissa Frances 6x6" Christmas paper pad. She cut up the designs and rearragned them on the card. She then stamped the sentiment from a set of Jillian Vance.

Katie's Favorite Products

Happy Monday, crafters! We hope you had a great holiday weekend and are ready to finish up those Christmas gifts and decorations. If you're looking for some gift ideas to give to fellow crafters, we have a great feature for today's blog post. DT Member Katie has listed some of her favorite crafty products to use that would make great gifts!
T Ruler - I use mine for everything! It keeps everything straight plus it has a ruller and most are less than $3! A great stocking stuffer.
Martha Stewart Score Board - The large one is only $20 and there is also a mini board for $10 for those on a budget. The perfect tool for scoring cards and making so many other neat paper crafts.

Hero Arts Layering Paper - I use these for everything. The come in a huge assortment of colors and are only $3 for 10 sheets. That's 20 cards for only $3! They are a nice weight and very sturdy. Plus, one side of the card stock is white. They even have black! I buy a bunch at a time, cut and fold them so they are ready at my desk for quick card making.
American Crafts Knock Out Border Punches - These are great stocking stuffers! They now have a holiday board punch, too! They are small and compact. The carrying case you can purchase with a set holds 6 different designs.
American Crafts Glitter Tape - These tapes come in a package of 24 colors and are super easy to use. Just peal and stick to add a quick, sparkly texture to projects.
Lawn Fawn Acrylic Blocks - These are nice and thick with curved edges to make them easy to hold (which keeps me from dropping my inked image in the wrong place). They have a long one that is perfect for long sentiments, too!
Crop Hopper Tote Bag - Something every craft needs when they take classes... A tote bag to keep your tools organized when you're crafting away from home!
We hope you enjoyed Katie's suggestions! Let us know if you have any other favorite items that would make great Christmas gifts in the comments below.
