Gorgeous Grunge Baby Punch Art Card


Punch Art Baby card made with stamps from Stampin'UP!'s Teeny Tiny Wishes and Gorgeous Grunge stamp sets.
Here's a sweet pair of baby shoes all ready for baby's first steps. My granddaughter is just learning to walk so these baby shoes are images near and dear to my heart.

The splotches stamped along the side of the card are from a stamp set called Gorgeous Grunge and they seemed like the perfect image for the background of this baby card.

These helter skelter splotches remind me of my granddaughter's first attempts at walking.

She's just a year old and watching her move around you definitely know where the word "toddler" comes from. Its so much fun watching her transition from crawling to walking.

The shoes were easy to make using 2 punches. First I punched a 1/2" circle in a sheet of pink paper. Then I positioned the small oval punch over the hole and punched out the oval with a hole in it.

To make the oval with the hole look like a baby shoe I just added a small bow. Stampin'UP!'s 1/8" Black Taffeta Ribbon looks so sweet on these baby shoes. I can just see my little sweetie toddling around in these.

The tiny white flowers were made with a punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. They're randomly placed because that's what babies do, they leave a random trail of stuff.

The sentiment is from a stamp set called Teeny Tiny Wishes and it really seems more like a "welcome" statement to me. I guess the shoes and my granddaughter's first steps just make me think of a 1 year old. Of course you can get cute baby slippers for newborns too.




Punch Art Valentine card made with stamps from Stampin'UP!'s Teeny Tiny Wishes and Gorgeous Grunge stamp sets.So how would you use this card? Would you use it as a birthday card or a card to welcome a new baby?  

1 year old birthday  - or - newborn?

Of course adults call each other "baby" too. So maybe if we replace the baby shoes with hearts this could be a Valentine!
