PPPR ~ Baby Shower Blog Hop

Hi everyone!

Thank You for joining us for the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons "Baby Shower" Blog Hop.

Make sure you start the blog hop at the beginning over at Lisa's blog HERE if you just happen to be passing by. You don't want to miss all the wonderful and super cute "Just for Kids" projects that were made using PPPR files. If you're coming here from Brianna's blog than you're in the right place.
 For my first project I used  PPPR Layered Labels 3 Cutting Files to make the base of the card and the green piece of paper that the Teddy Bear is on. The cute little Teddy Bear is from PPPR Santa's Helpers Cutting Files. The "Welcome Little one" sentiment is from Pink By Design "Baby Love" stamp set and it's stamped on one of the images from PPPR Sentiment Spots 1 Cutting Files. I added some black stitching, yellow stickles and sequins for some detail. I also added glossy accents to the eyes. The inside sentiment is from Pink By Design "Bear Hugs" stamp set.

This is how I make my shape cards. I put the two shape next to each other but not over lapping. Than I make rectangle shape just big enough to go over both pieces of paper, and after that I weld all three pieces together. I did this for both of my cards.
 For my second project I used PPPR Layered Labels 3 Cutting Files to make the base of the card and the two mat pieces as well. The Cigar is from PPPR Old Chap Cutting Files and I added glossy accents to the label on the cigar . The stamp mustache is from Pink By Design "Mustaches" stamp set as well as the sentiment. I stamped the sentiment using VersaMark and white embossing powder. The banner is from Pink by Design "Small Banner" stamp set. Finally I did some white stitching.

What I used:
Pink By Design "Baby Love" stamp set
Pink By Design "Bear Hugs" stamp set
Glossy Accents
Yellow Stickles
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
Tim Holtz Shabby Shutters Distress Ink
Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink
White embossing Powder
