Clear & Simple Stamps Preview Day 1: Baby

Hello friends.  
I can't even express to you how excited I am about this post.
Well over a year ago I started designing the stamps you are about to see in this PREVIEW. All week you will see peeks of Collection 2: BABY from Clear & Simple Stamps, then on the 5th we will reveal all the sets.

I am a mommy of two little ones and can't get enough baby related stamps into my life! I've been so anxious to share my projects. So let's get to it..... 

First up, a delightful baby boy announcement MINI TRI-FOLD die cut card. I used two background building stamps from the stamp set PLAYROOM. I love the numbers and the little airplanes together. I chose to go with a monochromatic look for the background.

The elephant die is from the die set BABY SHOWER. I could have stamped the coordinating elephant from the stamp set BABY SHOWER but I think it also looks great just as a die cut.

I found this striped pattern paper in my "to get rid of" pile and thought what was I thinking. I love stripes and these colors together. Nothing says baby 'boy' better than that!

Inside, tucked away in the pocket, you'll find a lovely new label die cut stamped with coordinating stamps from the stamp set PARTY ELEMENTS: BABY and BABY SENTIMENTS. I had to center the  'name, date, etc.' when designing the stamp. I think it looks more modern this way. Love that!

Oh, but we can't forget about the possibility of a little girl.... I used the sweet little butterfly and button backgrounds from PLAYROOM to build this background. I distressed the edges with an ink pad and added another fun little elephant die cut. You might notice this one faces east. You get both in this die set!! Awesome!!

Here's a side view of the spectacular tri-fold card. I cut the MINI TRI-FOLD die twice; first with a solid cardstock and then in a fun designer paper.

There is a perfect little slit for the top tab to fit into to hold her closed.  
You're welcome! lol.

And the lovely little announcement card {label}. You can also fit a wallet size photo of your newborn in the pocket ...or affix this little label to the back of the photo and call it a day. :)


Thanks for stopping by. 
Be sure to check out the rest of the peeks!!  
Note: stop by for peeks all week and a big SHABANG on the 5th!!
