Guest at LOTV With Adorable Baby Balloon

Morning Everyone,

Soooooo excited to have been asked by the lovely Anne to guest for LOTV, who wouldn't say no. It's also challenge day at LLC so I have a combined DT paper bag card for you today.  The challenge theme is Love and Lace and to be different, I have chosen the love of a baby and to do a paper bag card.

I have used the oh so gorgeous Lili of the Vallley Balloon Basket, OMG I love this stamp and I have also used the baby companion stamp set, definitely soooooooo cute.  I have stamped the words BABY and BOY from the set and layered onto a wooden banner and edged with walnut distress ink. I have positioned the word BOY into a prima resin oval frame and added some handcut flags from the gorgeous Pion Design Forget Me Not from the Sweet Baby collection.

Here's a picture with the little tag removed, again stamped from the Lili of the Valley Baby Companion Set.  I've added seam binding, Baby Delivery Charm and 3 wild orchid craft roses.

The lace is called  Zoe, so beautiful.  The Balloon Basket image has been layered onto a spellbinders floral oval with 3mm pearl string.trim.

The bottom of the card is finished off with wild roses, roses 20mm and 20mm, flower spray in cream and baby rose buds.

And then we open up the card.  The clothes on the washing line were also stamped from the LOTV Babies Companion set and I cut them out and added wooden pegs and some twine.  The butterflies are cut from the PionDesign Studio of Memories cut out sheet, one of my favourtie Pion Papers.

You will see on the left hand side that I have cut out the baby tag, edged with walnut distress ink, a little cheese cloth underneath.  I stamped the Hello  Little One, again from the accessories set and added to the tag.  The Love paperclip on the right is by MayaRoad.

Oh, do you see the little Giraffe, isn't he adorable.  I stamped out and coloured him with distress inks.  I also stamped out the two tags, again from the accessories sheet and added to the side.  

Can you see the little hinge clip on the right...... look at the next picture to reveal what's on this....

Here's all the tags pulled out.  Aren't they cute.  The baby companion set sure has come in handy for this project.  Stamped onto kraft card, edged with walnut distress ink and a little gesso.

The main tag pulled from the inside of the paper bag card has another tag cut from the Pion Design cut out sheet and this one allows for all the Glad Tidings of the new arrival to be put.

A close up of the right, just look at those little clothes and the adorable Giraffe with pressie.

 Thanks for all your comments on here, facebook and Instagram, I know I have kept you busy lately but I will have some candy for you in the next day or two, just putting together the picture so be sure to check back.

Hugs Tracy x
