Hello and Happy Saturday! Today I’m thrilled to be hopping along with the Ellen Hutson Ambassadors to celebrate sweet mommy-to-be, Carly! You can find all the hop stops over on the Ellen Hutson blog here!
I honestly don’t have a lot of baby themed stamps so I looked through my stash to see what I could make work for a baby card and found one of my older Ellen Hutson sets: G’Day Mate. G’Day Mate is discontinued but it was released several years ago as a United We Flourish collaboration between Ellen Hutson and Avery Elle and it’s one of my all-time favorite critter sets!
I stamped the cute koalas with copic-friendly black ink and colored them with copic markers before die-cutting them with the coordinating dies. I also stamped the sentiment from Totally Random Sayings Vol. 3 and trimmed it down to a thin label sentiment.
Next I blended blueprint sketch, shaded lilac, and peacock feathers distress oxide ink onto a panel of strathmore bristol cardstock before die-cutting it with the Scallops die. I used the negative to line up the scallops on a panel of kraft cardstock and then added my koala pair and sentiment with foam mounting tape! Huge congratulations and big hugs to you, Carly! I wish we could celebrate in person but since that’s not possible these days I hope this hop makes you smile!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today and have a fabulous weekend! 🙂

Jess, the momma & baby koala make the perfect card for the soon to be awesome duo! So nice that all of Carly’s frinds/coworkers wanted to have a shower for her and spend some ko-ality time with her.

Oh oh oh, that is adorable. I like how you put the scalloped die cuts behind the adorable koalas!!!!

Your card is adorable and a sweet thing to do for the Mother to be. An exciting time for her and the family.

Great way to think out of the box and use “nonbaby” stamps for this adorable baby card!
Such a darling card!

Oh Jessica, this is just so very sweet! You have a mama & baby koala that I think are perfect for a baby card. You are all so thoughtful to arrange this virtual shower for her during this time of physical distancing & I’m sure she is thrilled. Congratulations Carly & Shaun!
