January Diva Dare ~ Day 3

Hi Everyone! It's Sankari here with Day 3 of the Diva Dare, where this month its all about Baby Love, baby! Here are the deets:

We dare you to make a card, project, layout, or whatever fits your stamping style using this month's theme - Baby Love!  The baby part could be for a new little someone...or a special someone!  Be sure to look for the details on how you can win some new Verve goodies at the end of this post!

Can I tell you how much I have been loving the sweet little animals that Julee has created with the To The Moon stamp set? Each of the little baby animals are soooo adorable and I couldn't wait to give them some more love for my project today. One of our sweet friends is having a baby in a couple of months (a wee baby girl!) and so I couldn't wait to create a little somethin' somethin' for her and her little bundle of preciousness :) I used this little onesie template (created by stampercolleen on SCS) and decided to create a little onesie card and matching giftbag:

For the onesie, used yummo Pixilicious papers and cut out the onesie pattern and outlined it with a bit of liquid pearls and used the little teddy bear with the window frame technique (Jackie and Amy - I totally love how you did the little guy in the window and I couldn't wait to "window" him too :D I punched out a little heart for him to hold and popped up the sentiment "welcome" on the side.

Card Ingredients:
StampsTo the Moon stamp set from Verve Stamps:
Papers: Pixilicious from CC and cardstock from PTI
Inks: Memento Rich Cocoa, Tuxedo Black and Grape from Memento
Accessories: MS heart punch, bling, eyelets, EK sucess punch, dimensionals and button from stash.

For the giftbag, used one of the 6x6 pages from the DP set and had that as the background with another paper pieced onesie on the front. I decorated this onesie with the Classy Oval frame from the Love Notes stamp set. I stamped the sentiment: "Sugar and Spice and everything nice" onto the frame and then attached a little bear with a heart on it and popped it up onto the gift bag. I finished the bag off with a bit of ribbon:
